Local shoppers were out in force today when wilko opened its doors to its newly relocated store at The Golden Square Shopping Centre, Warrington. 

Queues outside the store started forming at 7am with more than 130 shoppers keen to get a first look at the relocated wilko store. 

The first 100 customers received a goody bag containing essential products for the garden including a plant pot and seeds, as well as some delicious Easter treats. Whilst shoppers on the day also enjoyed free cupcakes and the opportunity to meet Wolfie, the Warrington Wolves mascot. 

A ceremonial ribbon cutting was led by Head of Division for the North, Mark Highfield, branch manager, Keith Peers, Assistant Manager, Donna Mather, and Fiona Wolstenholme, a representative of Save the Children, who attended on behalf of the wilko Charity Partnership. The wilko Charity Partnership supports Save the Children, Alzheimer’s Society and Teenage Cancer Trust. 

Wilko Warrington Branch Manager, Keith Peers, presented the charity partnership with a £600 cheque for all three charities. 

Wilko Warrington Branch Manager, Keith Peers said: “We had a fantastic turnout for the launch event, which it’s a very positive start to our residence here at The Golden Square Shopping Centre. We can’t wait to welcome more customers to the new store.”

Founded in 1930 by JK Wilkinson the company was created to deliver his vision of providing customers with a huge choice of product at the best possible price combined with top customer service.
