This is when Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough Wilko stores will shut for good. It has been revealed that 37 branches will close on Monday (September 25), followed by a further 37 sites on Wednesday (September 27) in the UK.
Another 37 will shut on Friday (September 29) after Wilko fell into administration last month and at the time of its collapse, it had more than 400 shops and employed around 12,500 people.
Administrators at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) were unable to find a buyer for the entirety of the Wilko estate, which meant stores started to close last week reports the Daily Mirror.
The first 24 shops confirmed for closure pulled down their shutters last Tuesday (September 12) with the second batch of 28 sites following last Thursday (September 14).
A further 38 stores closed on Sunday (September 17) followed by another 38 yesterday (September 19) and 48 stores on Thursday (September 21).
Around 280 stores have a confirmed closure date and it is anticipated that all Wilko stores will be closed by early October, resulting in more than 9,000 job losses. More than 100 store closures still need to be announced.
It has now been confirmed by an update on the PwC website that the Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough branches will shut their doors for good on Friday (September 29).
Administrators say that the Northampton branch will shut today (September 21) but it is unclear whether that is referring to the site on Gold Street, in Weston Favell or at Riverside.
The Range has stepped in and bought the Wilko brand, website, and intellectual property, which means the retailer can now sell Wilko products within its own stores. Sadly, the agreement did not include physical sites so has no impact on the closures.
