All five Wilko stores around Glasgow that will shut this week - including one that will become Poundland

Announced today, September 14, Poundland will take over the lease of 71 Glasgow stores, these are all the stores around Glasgow and their dates of closure

Wilko began closing its first shops this week after falling into administration. The 90-year-old retailer will close 52 branches across Tuesday (September 12) and Thursday (September 14) after failing to secure a deal to rescue the stores.

Administrators from PwC said last week the closures will lead to 1,016 redundancies. It comes as the insolvency experts continue to seek a deal to save as many shops and jobs as possible.

They were dealt a blow on Monday after HMV owner Doug Putman confirmed he has failed in a bid to strike a deal to buy around 200 stores. It means thousands of jobs across Wilko’s remaining shops, warehouses and head office remain in the balance.

Wilko started closing its branches on Tuesday (September 12), and nearly 30 more are scheduled to shut this week before the rest cease trading by early October.

Poundland managing director Barry Williams said: “In the coming weeks we will work quickly with landlords so we can open these stores as Poundlands with the new ranges that have been pivotal to our recent development. And once that process is complete, we will ensure a significant number of the Wilko colleagues will join our Poundland team.”
