A couple of people have been in touch to say Wickes are closing their Charlton store on 21st August just a few years after it opened.
Parent company Travis Perkins – who also own Toolstation and Tile Giant -announced they were cutting 2,500 jobs and 167 branches across their network of stores.
In it’s place will be a Home Bargains store.
The store is located on Bugsby’s Way at Brocklebank Retail Park. Another unit on the retail park has lay empty since Mothercare folded though I recently covered how Wren Kitchens are seeking to open at the site.
