If that's true, plenty of people will be calling on Wickes. Unlike a lot of DIY outlets, Wickes has concentrated on heavyweight materials and tools for tradespeople and 'confident and capable' do-it-yourselfers. The new slogan, devised with ad agency Mortimer Whittaker O'Sullivan, was launched in a TV campaign over Christmas. The ads draw a parallel between Wickes, proud to put its name on its own products, and its customers, one of whom we see proudly signing the last drawer of a 'beautiful' but 'affordable' kitchen he has just assembled. The slogan, spoken in gruff, salt-of-the-earth tones, reminds us that almost anything you buy from Wickes will have Wickes written on it. It promises that each own-brand product will uphold the firm's good name - its reputation. But the slogan is preaching to the converted. If you've never had the pleasure of visiting a Wickes store and loading your trolley with Wickes sand and cement, it is nearly meaningless.
Taking responsibility for how your products are sourced isn't just the right thing to do, it's also good business.
