Full and final list of Wilko stores to shut for good

Business

Wilko will close the last of its remaining high street stores next month.

The collapsed homeware retailer’s final 111 sites will shut on three dates in early October.

Most sites have already closed, with the latest wave closing for good yesterday.

More than 10,000 jobs are expected be lost as a result of Wilko’s collapse.

Earlier this month, rival retailer The Range bought Wilko’s brand, website and intellectual property, while 120 stores – more than a quarter of its estate – have been sold to B&M European Value Retail and Poundland’s owner.
