Making it fit since 1930
What we do
We design the interior layouts of wilko stores and create virtual planograms, there isn’t an inch of space we don’t account for. Maximising the ‘Sales Per Metre’, we make sure we’ve the correct space to sales ratio for products – micro and macro – and the right mix of products in the right stores.
It’s complex stuff. We’re responsible for core as well as promotional builds and have to consider things like customer flow as well as health and safety. Using customer insight, market data and sales reports to inform our decisions, we constantly review commercial performance across all layouts and floor plans and are at the forefront of new format thinking.
The difference we make
We’re experts at pulling together to get the job done ‘right first time’. We’ve hundreds of years of retail space planning experience between us and are firm believers in the benefits of sharing best practice. We also have a strong passion for what we do and encourage regular change and category diversity. It’s why there’s always something new and exciting to learn here and someone to share it with too.
Now that’s interesting
At any one point, we have at least 20,000 live planograms in our system and 500 live floor plans, which we look after and maintain. That’s huge! We also own and look after 6,835,534 square feet of retail space daily with 30,000 metres of seasonal space which is planned at each transition (Garden, Summer, Autumn, Christmas and January).
