Wrexham’s BHS is due to close for the final time next month.

114 BHS stores that remain trading are due to close the doors for good by Saturday 20th August at the latest.

Administrators Duff & Phelps are due to confirm the news formally tomorrow, with some stores expected to close before the August date.

Tomorrow will also see MPs on the Commons Work and Pensions Committee publish their report on BHS, which is expected to be highly critical of former BHS owner Sir Philip Green who sold the company for a token £1.



Problems with BHS were first emerging in March when landlords were being asked to reduce rents in an attempt to reduce its liabilities.

The chain entered administration in April, with efforts being made to find a buyer for all or part of the store, however that was not successful. In early June it was confirmed that the chain would be entering liquidation with around 8,000 staff plus 3,000 contractors losing their jobs due to the collapse of the store.

Wrexham’s store is located on Henblas Street, which when the store closes and the Post Office completes its relocation to WH Smiths will mean the entire north row will be empty.
