Wilko has revealed when it will shut the last of its remaining stores – including those in York and Selby.
The Clifton Moor store at York will close for the final time on Thursday 5 October.
And the Selby branch at Abbey Walk Shopping Centre, shuts on Sunday 8 October. So will the store in Scarborough
Wilko has already announced that the Northallerton store will close next Thursday, 28 September. It has been bought by the Poundland group.
The hardware and furnishings retailer tumbled into administration last month after it came under pressure from weak consumer spending and debts to suppliers.
The retailer will shut its final 111 stores in early October as part of the final phase of closures, administrators for PwC said.
In the York store, a notice said: “For over 90 years we’ve been serving our customers and our loyal team members have always been our greatest asset.
“Thank you for shopping at Wilko.”
And a notice in the Selby branch says: “Thank you for all your support. It’s been a blast!”
The Wilko brand will not disappear entirely from the UK high street after The Range agreed to buy Wilko’s brand, website and intellectual property, with plans to sell the acquired brand in its stores.
Wilko was originally founded by James Kemsey Wilkinson in Leicester in 1930 and employed 12,500 workers before its collapse.
