Ben Exall, Digital Director at Wilko, said: “This is an exciting addition to wilko.com and offers customers more flexibility than ever when it comes to shopping with us.

"We’re proud to have already rolled this out across over half of our stores nationwide via two initial trials and, thanks to fantastic customer demand and feedback, we’re thrilled to be bringing click and collect to over 400 locations nationwide.”

Wilko has clarified that the cut-off time for click and collect is 2pm, as any orders placed after 2pm will be ready for collection by 11am the following day.

Orders will need to be collected within seven days, as otherwise Wilko will cancel the order and send a refund.

Other additions and changes to Wilko's shopper experience include: launching pick-a-day and/or time delivery, creating third-party parcel collection points at selected stores across the country, reducing the price of home delivery options and introducing Klarna as a payment option.
