Two more Wiltshire Wilko stores will close next week with all 400 branches set to shut by early October.

The High Street chain entered administration in August and closures began last week, with stores in Swindon and Devizes facing their final day on Tuesday, September 19.

Now administrators for the firm, PriceWaterhouseCooper, have confirmed when the remaining Wiltshire shops will serve customers for the final time.

The Wilko in Trowbridge’s Castle Place Shopping Centre will close for good on Monday, September 25, before the Chippenham High Street branch follows on Friday, September 29.

These closures come as part of a cull of 111 shops across the week, with all 400 locations due to shut down by the early days of next month.

After the popular chain was plunged into administration the possibility of rescue bids from several sources remained for some time.

HMV owner Doug Putman had planned to keep 300 of Wilko’s stores open, but this bid was scuppered due to rising costs complicating the deal.

Fellow discount retailer B&M have already agreed a deal to purchase 51 shops while Poundland have snapped up a further 71.
