HOMEBASE on Riverside Retail Park is expected to close in the coming days.

The home and garden retailer confirmed in September that it would be shutting its Warrington store.

And the Riverside branch is due to shut this weekend, with signage stating that the premises will shut in a matter of days displayed outside.

A closing down sale if offering ‘at least 80 per cent’ of everything in the store.

Homebase is in the process of shutting 42 of its branches across the UK, putting around 1,500 jobs at risk.

The stores are being shut under a Company Voluntary Arrangement, a controversial practice used by struggling firms to shut under-performing shops.

Earlier this year, Homebase boss Damian McGloughlin said: “We are pleased that an overwhelming majority of our creditors, including such a proportion of landlords, have supported the plans laid out in the CVA.

“We now have the platform to turn the business around and return to profitability. This has been a difficult time for many of our team members and I am very grateful for their continued support and hard work.

“We can look to the future with great confidence, and we will be working closely with our suppliers to capitalise on the opportunities we see in the home improvement market in the UK and Ireland.”
