Just like every other Wilkinson's this place stocks everything and anything.
However the main reason this store is nice isn't the stock but because they rarely change the layout of their items so you can always pop in and find exactly what you need.
At the back is paint and gardening supplies, just as you come into the store is the health and beauty section, followed by food for both humans and pets, then stationary and finally home wares.
If you're a lover of fairy lights you can find them here in the winter in great abundance.
I love Wilkinsons. Where else can you spend ten pounds and come out with carrier bags full of stuff.
They have the usual bargains in toiletries and cleaning products, and they also seem to have a lot of buy one get one free offers.
Their home department, although small, is surprisingly good. I particularly like their ranhe of pictures and their lighting, which is really inexpensive. A fair few of the pictures in my home came from this shop.
It is also goos for inexpensive stocking fillers for Christmas. There is a car park at the back of the shop, which is prpbably one of the cheapest car parks in Hitchin.
Fancy-dan shopping it ain't but at these prices who cares. They stock a vast range of products, toiletries, toys, homewares, DIY, stationery, sweets and have now started stocking food too!
Everything is at cheap-as-chips prices. They even have a home-brew section which is great for me and something that's often hard to find these days. It can get a trifle busy at weekends but is open (10am -4pm) on Sundays too which is handy. It's usually my first port of call for much of my shopping and I'll usually find what I'm looking for here. I, for one, am very glad Hitchin has this store.
Wilkinsons sell a huge range of things; toiletries, cosmetics, hair dye, cleaning products, paint and decorating supplies, toys, furniture, gardening equipment, craft supplies, stationery, household essentials, kitchen & cooking equipment, photo frames, soft furnishings, batteries, sweets, even food. I am sure the list goes on! Their prices are a complete steal and you can pick up some real bargains here.
This particular branch of Wilkinsons is pretty big & they seem to cram a huge amount of stock into the space they have; I personally find the aisles to be quite narrow because of this. This Wilkinsons also has the benefit of having its own car park above the store, which you can access from a backstreet down Bedford Road. If you park in their car park, you can get easy and fast access to Wilkinsons without having to walk through the Town Centre.
The only downside is that it is always really crowded, even during the week when other shops are quiet, Wilkinsons seems to be bustling all the time (I guess that just goes to show what great bargains they have on offer!)
a well stocked branch right in the town centre serviced by it's own car park (accessed from the one way system)
now stocks a small selection of very good value for money food lines
never as busy as other wilkinson stores in nereby stores, so very easy to move around with a trolley
Wilkinson's is great. They've got a bit of everything. I like this one and the branch in St. Albans. The last thing I bought there was a nice purple desk lamp.
Where else can you walk into a shop and purchase a trolley full of goods for under ten pounds - and still get change! :o) ...Wilkinsons offer a huge variety of goods to the self service penny sweets to every type of toiletry on the market today. They also have a homeware section, pets accessories and food, painting and decorating isles and even a gardening section for those of you who are green fingered! The store is located off Bancroft, opposite the traffic lights and at the bottom of nightingale road, next door to Prezzo restaurant. I'd recommend this shop to anyone who's looking to make savings in the credit crunch!
Lovely place to shop here as the items they have are good and reasonable in price. The staff are helpfull and shelves are always packed. The queues are not too bad either.
