Full list of retailers closing 56 stores next week including Wilko and Tesco – is your local disappearing? | The Sun

MAJOR high street brands and big supermarkets are closing more of their stores this week.

Wilko, Tesco and a number of other big brands are shutting stores for good.

Soaring inflation has left shoppers strapped for cash, and retailers are struggling to get customers to part with their hard-earned money.

High energy costs and a shift to online shopping are also taking a toll and many brands and many just haven't been able to keep going.

But not every retailer is shutting stores for good – some are expanding.

Aldi is set to open 20 new stores before the end of the year as part of its target to reach 1,500 branches across the UK.

Tesco closed its bargain supermarket brand Jack's last year, converting six of the 13 branches into new Tesco superstores, while the others permanently closed.

One of the stores that switched from a Jack's to a Tesco is located in Kilner Way Retail Park in Sheffield.

But Tesco confirmed that this store will close on Friday, September 15 because of low customer demand.

All staff currently working at the store will have the option to be redeployed to another store in the area.

There are currently four large Tesco stores and nine Express stores in Sheffield.


Iceland will be pulling the shutters down on two of its supermarkets next Saturday.

The discount chain has closed over a dozen shops this year already.

The chain's supermarkets in the Market Shopping Centre in Crewe and its branch in Grange Road, Birkenhead will then close for the last time on Saturday, September 16.

It follows the closures of 15 Iceland supermarkets earlier this year.

Here is the full list of Iceland closures:

  • Mill Lane, Bromsgrove – February

The supermarket giant will close its branche in Faversham on September 17.
