New Store to Open in the Royal Priors Shopping Centre

Wilko, one of Britain’s best loved value home and garden retailers, is opening a new store at Royal Priors Shopping Centre in late June, creating 40 jobs.

The new 8,000 Sq ft store will offer ranges across homeware and furniture, garden and outdoor, DIY and decorating, making it the perfect one-stop-shop for local people to run, repair, maintain, improve and live in their homes. Wilko Leamington Spa Branch manager, Steve Kibble said: “Leamington Spa has a strong retail offering but we’ve spotted a gap in the market for Wilko’s range of great quality products at everyday low prices.

“The town has a diverse range of shoppers, who will be well catered for with our product range and store layout.” “The excellent public transport links and nearby parking at Royal Priors make it a prime location for us to open in and we’re really excited to serve local shoppers when we open in June. “2016 is a big year for Wilko. We have an exciting expansion programme in place which will see us open new stores across the whole of the UK.”

Royal Priors manager, Gerry McManus said: “ We can’t wait for the arrival of the new Wilko store and believe this will be a great asset to the existing retail mix we have here at Royal Priors, we are also thrilled to be creating so many employment opportunities for the local area.’’

Founded in 1930 as Wilkinson Stores by J K Wilkinson, Wilko is one of the UK’s largest and best-loved retailers. Wilko Leamington Spa will be the family business’ 387th store in the UK. For more information please get in touch with Alex, Hugh, Beth or Rebecca at Brazen PR – 0161 923 4994. Alternatively email the team at
