Wickes to Trial Smaller Kitchen and Bathroom Showrooms

DIY market leader Wickes is to trial a number of smaller kitchen and bathroom showrooms in an attempt to pick up some of the business left by the decline of MFI.

The first two stores opened in Christchurch in Dorset and Crawley in West Sussex last week and another is planned for West Hampstead.

A spokesperson for the chain says that kitchen and bathroom sales are still performing very well despite decline in other areas of the business. Wickes enjoyed a 27% increase in kitchen and bathroom sales during the last year.
