One of Britain’s best loved value home and garden retailers, Wilko, will open the doors to its new store at Meadowhall Centre, on Wednesday March 21 at 10am.

To mark the special occasion, Dancing on Ice star Jake Quickenden will be in attendance as guest of honour, and will cut the ribbon alongside Wilko’s retail director, Anthony Houghton, Wilko Meadowhall branch manager, Andrew Priest, and a representative from one of Wilko’s charity partners, Alzheimer’s Society.

The launch day activity will include goody bags including £10 gift cards for the first 100 shoppers, a meet and greet with Dancing on Ice star Jake Quickenden (until 11am), and free cupcakes for shoppers.

Wilko Meadowhall Manager, Andrew Priest said: “The team is busy preparing the final touches to the store ahead of the official opening on Wednesday 21 March. We are very excited to welcome the customers to come and see our new look store and wide range of products at everyday stay low prices.

“We’re particularly excited to have Jake Quickenden join us on launch day – he’s about to embark on the Dancing on Ice tour so hopefully he’ll go away with some brilliant wilko products to take with him!"

Meadowhall retail director, Mark Bruce added: “We know a lot of our shoppers are looking forward to visiting wilko when it opens its doors but having Jake do the honours will make the day all the more special. Wilko is going to be an extremely popular addition to Meadowhall and is ideally situated on our Lower High Street mall.”
