Mayor opens new Wickes store

Mayor of Oadby and Wigston, Cllr David Carter officially opened the new Wickes store on Blaby Road in South Wigston earlier today (Friday 1 February).

The DIY retail outlet follows the opening of a new Lidl supermarket back in September 2018. Both new developments sit on the old Premier Drum site, which had been unused for a decade.

Planning permission was granted by Oadby and Wigston Borough Council last year and builds upon the council’s commitment to promote regeneration opportunities in South Wigston - building upon investments made to Blaby Road Park and the South Leicestershire College campus.

Despite the chilly temperatures the ribbon-cutting ceremony was well attended by store staff, shoppers, Cllrs and council staff. To see a selection of pictures from the official opening of the new Wickes store in South Wigston, please visit out Facebook gallery:
