I went to Wickes to get some Conti board. Nothing much - they are to be very utilitarian shelves. Well, do they know how to charge. The plain steel brackets came to Â£26 for ten and if that wasn't bad enough, the cheap and nasty laminated board, 6 metres by 9", would have cost me... Â£82
To put that into context, a timber yard, local to my work, cut the shelves to my precise requirements for a total of Â£12.20.
Without wishing to tread upon toes, what sort of mug pays Wickes' timber prices?
