All 400 Wilko shops to close with loss of more than 12,000 jobs

All of Wilko’s 400-plus stores are to close with the loss of more than 12,000 jobs after talks with potential buyers failed to deliver a rescue deal for the stricken retailer.

The GMB union said on Monday that the administrators, PwC, had informed staff that all of the chain’s 408 stores were set to close by early October.

Wilko’s two big warehouses, in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, and Newport, Wales – at which 299 staff have already been cut – are to close on Friday next week.

The retailer, which was founded in 1930 when JK Wilkinson opened his first store in Leicester, took over stores left empty when Woolworths collapsed in 2008.
