WILKO has announced the closing date for its Poole store as part its final wave of closures.
The branch inside The Dolphin shopping complex will close its doors on Tuesday, October 3.
It comes just days before the historic retailer closes its last remaining stores on Sunday, October 8.
Ferndown’s Wilko, in Victoria Road, closed last weekend.
Wilko’s final Dorset branch to close will be the Weymouth store on Thursday, October 5.
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.
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.
