who we are

Wilko is a family business that started as a single hardware store back in 1930. For over 90 years, we’ve made the lives of families easier by providing them with simple, affordable and reliable ways to help them get their home and garden jobs done. Little wins, we call them.

We’ve successfully grown from a one-shop business to an Omnichannel retailer with over 400 stores. We’ve done this by listening to what our customers want – and then making sure we provide it. Whether it’s meeting the demands for DIY products in the 1950s, creating our first wilko brand range in the 1970s, launching online shopping in the 2000s or being first to sell 100% plastic-free wipes in 2020 – helping our customers get their jobs done and make the most of their homes and gardens, while at the same time making things a little bit better for our families, communities and the planet, has always been at the heart of what we do.
