Very helpful staff, however what I required said in stock online, but when I went to the store it was in stock at the supplier and had to be delivered, said free delivery but once in basket an extra £7.00 delivery charge was added and no …

I have been to Wickes a few times over the past week – it is our local large DIY store. It stocks the majority of the items and things I have wanted. The store is located with other businesses. There is plenty of parking. There are trollies …

Initial consultation was great, and good front end customer service. However, now we’ve gone through the process of fitting a new bathroom once, we realise that there’s a lot of redundant pricing and will look to manage future projects on …

Not bad store with easy parking, they didn’t have the product I wanted on shelf and couldn’t get new ones from the back of store as not booked in. Rang up 2 hours later same story even though it said online they had one in store. Lesson learned ring up first to check !

Had kitchen fitted in late 2020 which began to fall apart in 2021. Despite being under warranty, customer service just couldn’t care less. It’s all ‘it’s being looked into’ or ‘someone will phone you back’ but no one ever does. Its been …

Very difficult to manoeuvre through the store. Every aisle had obstacles that made it difficult to get past with a trolley. And once outside of the shop the wilted flowers displays were strategically placed to make it difficult to get back into the car park

On arriving at Wickes Fareham today my 2 year old had fallen asleep. I called up the store and told them.that I really needed a product but my son was asleep. The man who answered very kindly explained that if I did a click and collect he …

Not very busy but large queue for tills as servers were few and slow. Spent longer in payment queue than selecting item wanted. Also charged more than expected as item was placed with wrong price on shelf.

Waited in a queue for 30 mins to get in. Was asked twice by staff outside what I’d come for – wood. When I finally got inside I found the shop nearly completely empty of timber. Could have told me!!?

Had a bathroom installed through them, floor broke after 6 months. Despite being under warrantee it took 6months to get them to agree to replace it and more than a year later they still haven’t replaced it. In store people really helpful, installation manager just refuses to communicate with us and seems to be just ignoring this case.

Absolutely shocking customer service. It seems like they make a habit of designing bathrooms, ordinary wrongly and then ripping you off in the process. Aboif getting your bathroom and kitchen designed unless you wish to never hear from them again and get blamed for everythibg the moment you sign

Made an attractive gravel path between flower borders. Bags are a bit flimsy and two out of the four on display had been re-bagged in plastic sacks but didn’t seem to have lost anything. Without prompting from me I was given a 50% discount on the split bags. Can’t argue with that! I’ll be back!

Avoid like the plague. Do not get a bathroom installed by wickes at any cost. Their management and aftercare are extremely bad so expect to be out of pocket.

Do not buy “joinery grade” timber here. You will be sold a bunch of bananas, and you will have to return the items at your expense and inconvenience in order to get a refund. Customer services a waste of time.

Click and collect awful. They picked shopping when you arrive despite a text informing order is ready to collect. After 20 mins wait, they brought me out a box full of broken tiles, so had to wait another 10 mins for them to swap it. Should never have ordered online, waste of time

Poor range of silicon sealants, no staff on the floor to help customers, very long queue to pay without manning all the tills. A nice lady staff member let us in so we didnt have to stand in the rain too long with my kid. Went to homebase instead.

While first in queue for till holding roll of felt 25kg plus nails, a member of staff brought a woman forward for a long discussion. Surely a supervisor could be seen. Save a queue of customers moaning of previous visits.

Total joke! Long queues of diyers. We are ment to still be in lockdown. Essential shopping only and shopping for trade. Wickes is just a shabby DIY store now. Over priced low quality products. No wonder Travis Perkins are selling them off. I’m off to Covers in Gosport.

I’ve used Wickes since moving to Fareham in 2001, and had normally been very satisfied. But today’s visit was a disaster! They have installed the most vicious speed bumps I have ever encountered, and my little car objected almost as much as me. I shall not be able to return.
