If the user was looking for a basic 'brochure' style site, would you ever use a website creator, such as square space or wix? Why or why not?

Personally, I wouldn't for the sole reason that I am not familiar with it and learning it would require some time. I might prefer using a ready-made WordPress theme instead. I wouldn't be against using Wix, though, if it was for a small site that you are certain that you will not need to extend with extra functionality that needs custom development in the future.

I've seen nice implementations even with Wix and ready-made WordPress themes.

Knowing your tools well and being able to make the most out of them depending on the occasion is often more important than using the "best" tools that there is in a suboptimal way.
