This morning, Sarah Diston from the charity Macmillan led a ceremonial ribbon cutting, along with Wilko chief financial officer Aidan Connolly and branch manager Steve Kibble.

The first 50 lucky customers through the door received a smoothie maker and good bag while the next 50 customers received a £5 Wilko gift card in a bag jam-packed full of goodies.

Mr Kibble said: “The team has been working really hard to put everything in place ahead of the launch and the store is looking great.

“I’m confident our range of great quality products at everyday low prices will become an essential part of people’s weekly shopping mix.”

Founded in 1930 as Wilkinson Stores by J K Wilkinson, Wilko is one of the UK’s largest retailers.

Wilko Leamington Spa is the family business’s 387th store in the UK.
