Wrexham’s Homebase store to close next month

Wrexham’s Homebase store is to close next month, it has been confirmed.

The store on Plas Coch hadn’t featured on a closure list published over the summer, however Homebase have today confirmed that the store is set to cease trading on December 14th.

It is not yet known how many jobs will be lost.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Homebase initiated a CVA in August, leading to the beginning of negotiations with landlords on the measures outlined in the proposal.

“As conversations take place on a store by store basis, there is an element of fluidity in the process. I can confirm that the Wrexham store is scheduled to close on 14th December.

“We aren’t able to provide employees numbers.

“Consultations are still ongoing and the business is exploring redeployment options so the figure is not yet clear.”

As the picture sent to us by Tracy above shows, signage indicating the closure has appeared around the store today.

The company was bought from Australian owner Wesfarmers by Chicago headquartered Hilco for a nominal £1 earlier in May.

The announcement follows a series of high profile store closures in Wrexham, with the likes of Starbucks, Topshop / Topman, Bargain Buys / Poundworld, Burton, Maplin Three and Wallis recently closing their branches in town and Eagles Meadow.
