Dont you just hate "up to x%" sales. The only item you'll find at 50% off will be some piece of tat that normally costs 99p.Virtually everything else will be 10 - 15% off.

This is a general comment and to be fair to Wickes, they do on occasion have very good reductions on specific items, but these "50% off" headlines are just a con.

Aaand......relax......

Toolstation beat Screwfix prices hands-down on most identical items and free next day delivery on orders over £10.

Didn,t realise you could use Bananas on DIY projects.
Will keep this in mind.
Do you think their own brand sugar puffs could be used for cavity wall insulation:whistling:

Just for the record, ScrewFix and B&Q are effectively, the same company. If you search for an obscure item, say coving corners, you'll see its the same site but skinned.

I believe ToolBox was set-up by the guy who originally set-up ScrewFix.

Not quite right. It is Toolstation that was founded by the Goddard-Watts family who had sold Screwfix for a few million to Kingfisher (the B&Q parent). I expect that Kingfisher wishes it had got a longer 'no competing' undertaking when it bought Screwfix. Travis-Perkins (which owns Wickes) also has a significant stake in Toolstation, but there seems very little synergy between those three businesses.

There are often bargains to be had at Wickes (advertised or not) and most of the basic building materials, paint etc are fairly priced, but (as with all of the DIY stores) most plumbing, electrical and ironmongery items are expensive compared to SF or TS.

I have found that Screwfix has much better service regarding returns for stuff bought online, where as Toolstation is a nightmare. I tried to cancel an order before it was delivered from Toolstation. They said it couldn't be cancelled because the order had been proccessed ( but not despatched ). Said I could refuse delivery but the deilvery bloke left it a neighbours house, without my permission. I emailed Toolstation 3 days ago with no reply. So be carefull of Toolstation.

If your comment is based on that single experience with Toolstation, it is hardly justification for calling the service a 'nightmare'. In any event, it is not unreasonable that an order cannot be readily cancelled if you change your mind after placing it (I wonder why you wanted to?) - which is the position with Screwfix too. I have dealt with both companies over several years and every Toolstation order I have placed has been despatched same day and reached me the next. I have had a couple of minor errors with items sent but they have been rectified immediately. My experience with Screwfix is almost as good. I recommend both as offering good products, generally at good prices, and good service.

wow 50% off!

I have to laugh. My wickes inverness style kitchen was getting fitted today and I was one decor end panel short. basically a 26mm x 800 x 600 high gloss panel to finish an end. The price for this piece of chipboard £208. "Fortunately" for me I'll get that for the bargain price of £104 - ouch.

For what its worth...Wickes are generally better priced than B+Q. Screwfix is always cheaper than both of them, and can sometimes offer brilliant special offers.

Never used toolstation so can't comment
