Wilko Whitehaven to close next Tuesday

Wilkos Whitehaven store will close for good on Tuesday 26th September 2023 after the company has entered administration and failed to find a buyer.

The companies Workington and Barrow-in-Furness stores have already closed. Their Cockermouth store is due to close this Sunday.

Our thoughts are with all the employees at this sad time and we wish them the best of luck in finding future employment.

Wilko started closing down stores last week and 90 branches have now permanently closed.

The first 24 shops confirmed for closure shut their doors for good last Tuesday (September 12) with the second batch of 28 sites following last Thursday (September 14).

A further 38 stores closed yesterday (September 17) - and now another 38 will pull down the shutters tomorrow (September 19) and a further 48 stores will go on Thursday (September 21).

It is anticipated that all Wilko stores will be closed by early October, resulting in more than 9,000 job losses.
