Work begins in Paulton to convert former Focus store into Wickes

Focus store Paulton

Work has now begun to turn the derelict former Focus store at Old Mills in Paulton into a new Wickes Building Supplies.

The building, that has stood empty since closure in 2011, is now a hive of activity with construction workers carrying out demolition work within the building.

Planning permission to turn the site into a new DIY store was granted earlier this year. The scheme will see around £2.2million invested into the site and around 50 jobs created.

The plans include the complete refurbishment of the building, with new entrances, a revised parking layout and a new landscaping scheme.

It is thought work will take around 16 weeks to complete.
