Administrators for Wilko have revealed the locations of 52 shops which will close after failing to secure a rescue deal for the whole business.

The homeware retailer announced it was going into administration in August, putting 12,500 jobs at risk. 

PwC, which was appointed to oversee the insolvency last month, has been seeking offers from potentially interested firms in an effort to save jobs and stores.

It has now been confirmed that the Great Yarmouth store in the Market Gates Shopping Centre will close on Thursday, September 14.

The Wilko store in London Road North in Lowestoft will close on Tuesday, September 12.

It comes after rival retailer B&M bought up to 51 other Wilko stores in a deal worth up to £13 million.

A spokesman for the retailer has said that there will be redundancies for the team members working at these stores.

Edward Williams, joint administrator, said: "In the absence of viable offers for the whole business, very sadly store closures and redundancies of team members from those stores are now necessary."

The fate of the Wilko stores in Norwich, Thetford, Gorleston, King's Lynn and Dereham has not been revealed.
