Wickes dates back to 1854 in the USA, and from small beginnings the name grew to the huge international name it is today. The first UK store opened in 1972, in Manchester, and was a mixture of home DIY supplies, along with trade options for businesses. All products were offered at the same low trade prices, which pleased home decorators, for sure. Over time, the brand name has grown, and now most towns have a Wickes store, usually a large option on a retail park. Of course, you can also buy whatever you need online and have it delivered to your door, which is ideal for larger items, such as wood or heavy paint or wallpaper.
There are regular offers and discounts on the Wickes website, as well as a regular clearance or sale section, where you can grab cut-priced bargains no matter what the month of the year.
