Wilko has announced that it is opening a new store in Putney.

The new 8,000 Sq ft store in the Putney Exchange Shopping Centre is also expected to bring with it more than 40 new jobs.

“Putney Exchange is in a fantastic location with great transport links and we’re sure it will become the go-to place for locals looking to stock up on products for their homes and gardens for years to come.

“We had an exciting year in 2018 and are looking forward to opening more stores across the UK this year.”
