Wickes to open store in Wisbech

Published: 5 January 2018 - Kiran Grewal

Years after Wickes first considered moving to Wisbech, their new store is set to open on 7th Feb 2018.

The store is 20,000 sq ft sales area with 5,000 sq.ft mezzanine and 5,000 sq.ft outdoor project centre, creating 30 jobs.

Wickes first proposed moving to Wisbech in 2008 to fill what they felt was a ‘strategic gap’ between King’s Lynn and Peterborough. However the project was shelved temporarily but resurrected in 2016 when the application came before Fenland planners to build the new store that will be accessed via Sandown Road with a service access off Enterprise Way.

There are currently 10,000+ products in the Wickes range from kitchens and bathrooms to paint and timber, all of which are available to buy in-store, online or by telephone.

Do you think enough is being done to secure connected/smart home products from hackers and cybercrime?
