Wilko Over And Out


There was quite a buzz in Beeston this morning as one of the town's most favourite shops retuned to the Square after an absence of three years.

The original Wilkos, or Wilkinson's to give the store its proper name had to be knocked down to make way for the new tram tracks. The people of Beeston mourned its passing. But at 9am this morning, the Mayoress of Broxtowe cut the ribbon and the long line of people that had formed across the Square all filed in and given sweets, balloons and for the lucky ones, some store vouchers.
