"This great new Wickes store will offer an extended range of products, including our full kitchen and bathroom offer, plus some additional features," she said, adding, "Our Reading store staff will be transferring to the Oxford Road premises, and we are extremely pleased that this relocation venture will also create a number of new local job opportunities."
