Advantages Low prices, child friendly , Vareity of products, available online , friendly staff
Disadvantages No toilets in my local store
Wilkinsons is probably one of my favourite household and hardware shops to visit and shop as the deals and discounts are normally better than other High street stores in my area .------------Why I like the store ---------
My local store is in Greater Manchester and there is 12 available but my closest is just down the road . When I walk in the shelves are well organised and you can see clearly what is available with plenty of room to walk around leisurely .You can choose a trolley which caters for two children to be placed in with baby straps attached or you can get a basket to pull along the floor with a long handle so you do not have to carry anything . These baskets come in a average size and a larger size .
Wilkinsons stock everything from toiletries , housewares . tools , bedding and accessories , furniture , ornaments , food , cleaning products and basically anything you could possibly need for your home and everyday needs .All products are reasonably priced and usually at least 25 % cheaper than any of my other high street stores nearby.
I have visited at least another 8 of their stores in the last couple of years including Blackpool , Southport , Salford, Droylsden and Ashton . On all occasions I have found their stores to be clean, well lit and a pleasant atmosphere with friendly staff and longer opening hours than other local shops , as they usually shut at 6pm and open at 8am .I have shopped in Wilkinsons for
-Goods for the home when I moved house - Soft furnishings , storage boxes , small electricals including and iron and hoover and food .-Things for my new car - Car mats , oil , car cleaning equipment ,
- Baby items I was expecting my daughter like nappies , wipes , and cot bedding and safety equipment .- Toys for Xmas presents and Birthdays for all age ranges
-And everyday essentials like toilet rolls, cleaning equipment and make-up.-Pet products for myself and friends pets ranging from cages, food and cleaning fluids , to toys and leads .
- Garden BBQ and camping equipment and the odd plant and seeds I sometimes get.-DIY materials as I got a corded screwdriver for £5 and the screws , nails and small similar items are mainly all under as pound unlike shopping at B & Q for the same products.
------Staff -----------------------The staff are normally friendly in the stores I have visited and wear dark trousers and store red t- shirts with their name badges clearly showing which gives you that personal feeling when you speak to them.
If you cant find a product they do not hesitate to take you to the item itself which personally saves me alot of time when you have a toddler in tow, whom has spotted the toys and is swinging off your arm to go look at them , and you know your parking meter ticket is about to run out on the car unless you sprint like Linford Christie to meet the traffic warden, who has been stood at your car for several minutes on a countdown to the seconds to plaster a unrewarding piece of paper to your windscreen ,
Unless you find the washing powder you are after and quickly.
