Five Wilko shops will reopen before Christmas, the new owner of part of the high street hardware chain has said.
Two Wilko shops in Plymouth and Exeter will become concept stores, The Range’s parent company CDS Superstores said.
A further two stores will be in the South East and the final will be in the North.
It comes just weeks after 400 stores were closed and nearly all 12,500 jobs were lost as Wilko went bust.
The Range has acquired Wilko’s intellectual property and website. It had recently announced that Wilko branded goods would be on sale in 210 The Range stores “in a matter of weeks”.
Wilko brand home, garden wares and lifestyle products will also soon be available from wilko.com.
A mix of new shops, including in Northern Ireland for the first time, as well as shuttered stores will comprise the rollout.
