Wilko is set to shut the doors of its remaining stores next week as the collapse of the historic retailer comes to an end.

The high street retailer - originally founded by James Kemsey Wilkinson in Leicester in 1930 - fell into administration last month after it was unable to secure a rescue deal after coming under pressure from weak consumer spending and debts to suppliers.

Administrators PwC revealed recently there would be 111 stores closing this week, following a further 52 earlier in the month.

Now the final 111 stores will shut their doors for the final time next week as part of the final phase of closures, PwC announced.

The store closures are set to impact more than 12,000 Wilko employees across the UK.

On top of these closures, there have already been 52 Wilko stores shut their doors for good earlier in September.

The retailer’s Burnley store was also revealed in the initial round of closures, but won't close until Thursday, November 14.

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.

A number of Wilko stores have also been saved by other UK retailers.

B&M agreed to buy 51 Wilko stores earlier in the month, while administrators also reached a deal with Pepco - the owner of Poundland - who purchased 71 sites.
