Council leader issues statement on the closure of Wilko

The Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council has issued a statement after the announcement that Wilko stores will all close.

Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE has issued a statement on the closure of Wilko:

“The closure of Wilkinsons is a huge loss to our local high streets and our thoughts are with those employees affected.

“Whilst we are encouraged that Poundland have expressed an interest in the sites, the Council will continue to offer its full support to helping local people find alternative work.

Officers will be attending the redundancy support event near Wilkinson’s HQ, Worksop and will be at Jobs Fair at the Victory Club in Beeston on 13 October.

We are also exploring a special event in Kimberley for employees who were based at the store there and the Giltbrook branch who may be affected.”
