A Hampshire Wilko store is set to be taken over by another discount high street retailer following the chain’s collapse into administration.

Wilko shops around the country are closing over the next couple of weeks after administrators failed to secure a deal from any suitor to buy the business. However, an agreement has been reached to sell a number of the stores to Pepco, the company which owns Poundland.

Among the 71 location that are expected to become branches of Poundland is the Wilko in Havant’s Meridian Shopping Centre.
