The store in Courier Road opened for business last week and was launched by deputy mayor of Corby Council, Cllr Matt Keane.
Those in store on Saturday (November 19) between 12–4pm will have the chance to meet and have their photo taken with one of the UK’s most iconic four legged friends - the Dulux dog - who will be making an appearance.
Simon Hickling, store manager at Wickes Corby, said: “We’ve designed the store to make it easier to shop for your home improvement project - the layout will help guide you to everything that you need for your project, in one visit. “You’ll find inspirational room sets; worktops, appliances, baths and taps on display and our expert design consultants will be on hand to help you plan your dream space.
“Our store provides the local area with a go-to destination for quality products that offer real value for money and cater for a variety of DIY needs.
“We’re confident that the new store will provide everyone with the tools, materials and advice they need to complete their project, from those embarking on their first DIY project right through to experienced tradesmen.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors through our doors this weekend and hope that local residents will come and join us for the celebration.”
The Corby store will feature brand new kitchen and bathroom design centres, complete with professional design consultants.
The store will also host a range of new products, including famous brands, tiles and flooring, plus a wide array of seasonal product ranges.
Customers can continue to benefit from the Dulux paint mixing service and the Wickes price match promise.
The Corby store also offers trade customers discount when they shop. If you work within local trade, head in-store with your ID and speak with a store colleague who will sign you up to receive bespoke offers and reductions.
