Alfreton’s Wilko store will close on Tuesday, September 19, it was been confirmed.

PwC, administrators of Wilko, confirmed today (Monday, September 11) that all stores will close following the collapse of attempts to save the company.

Alfreton’s store, located on Institute Lane, will be one of 38 Wilko stores to close on Tuesday, September 19. The final working day for staff will be on Wednesday, September 20.

Zelf Hussain, joint administrator, said: “Despite the significant and intensive efforts of both ourselves and Putman Investments – the remaining party interested in buying a significant part of the business as a going concern – a transaction could not be progressed due to the inability to reduce central infrastructure costs quickly enough to make a deal commercially viable.

“The dedication shown by all team members during this period has been hugely humbling and we are grateful for the patience and understanding they have shown.

“As with those who have already been given notice of redundancy, we will guide and support those team members impacted over the coming weeks through the redundancy claims process.

“We also continue to collaborate closely with relevant agencies and engage with any potential employers to help facilitate a quick return into new employment for those impacted.”
