A BOURNEMOUTH branch of Wilko will close its doors for good.
The Wilko store in Wimborne Road, Winton, has its final day of trade on Sunday, September 24.
Shoppers have been making their final purchases with staff cleaning the empty aisles.
A message posted outside the entrance said: “Our last day of trading will be Sunday 24th September.
"Thank you for your loyal custom over the last 20 years.
“Please bring cake and alcohol. From the Wilko Winton team.”
The store is set to close for good at 4pm.
Wilko was put in administration last month after financial pressures from weak consumer spending and debts to suppliers.
The retailer is set to close all 400 shops across the country by mid-October, including all Dorset sites.
Ferndown’s Wilko, in Victoria Road, closed last weekend.
Wilko in the Sovereign Shopping Centre in Boscombe will close on Thursday, September 28.
The branch inside The Dolphin shopping complex in Poole will close its doors on Tuesday, October 3.
The final Dorset branch to close will be the Weymouth store on Thursday, October 5.
Wilko was originally founded by James Kemsey Wilkinson in Leicester in 1930 and employed 12,500 workers before its collapse.
The Wilko brand will not disappear entirely from the UK high street after The Range agreed to buy Wilko’s brand, website and intellectual property, with plans to sell the acquired brand in its stores.
