Major high street retailers shutting shops within days including Asda and New Look – see the full list | The Sun

SEVERAL major high street retailers will be shutting shops within days.

Asda and New Look are among the chains which will be closing stores.

Over the last year dozens of big name brands have pulled the shutters down on stores, including M&Co and B&M.

Food and pub chains have also been closing doors at several locations across the country – including Wetherspoons.

It comes following a tumultuous period for businesses struggling to bounce back after Covid and then to be hit with rising energy bills.

With costs high for shoppers too it means that people have been cutting back on non-essentials and prices continue to skyrocket.

The store reported that shoppers can get tops for £3, bottoms for £5, coats for just £7 and footwear for £5.

The fashion retailer has already closed several stores this year after it pulled down the shutters on 85 branches in 2018.

That said, New Look did open several shops across the UK in November 2022.


Asda, which has more than 600 branches across the country, is closing two Asda Living stores this summer.

Its branch in Island Green Retail Park, Wrexham, will close on July 31.

The Asda Living shop in Eastgate Retail Park, Bristol, is also set to close this summer, but an exact date has not yet been confirmed.

A spokesperson for the supermarket giant previously said that stores had been "running at a loss for a number of years".

Asda Living stores sell a range of furniture, electronics, toys, homeware, and health and beauty products.

There are currently 33 of these stores across the UK, including in Maidstone, Lincoln and Leeds.

It comes as Asda looks to open dozens more Express convenience stores this year.

Amazon Fresh

Amazon is set to close several stores within days as it gears up to open two new locations.

The e-commerce giant is pulling down the shutters for good on its Ealing, Wandsworth and East Sheen branches on July 23.

The company said it will open new Fresh stores in Moorgate and Liverpool Street, London, but did not confirm exactly when.

The Ealing store, which opened in March 2021, was Amazon's first UK grocery store and spans 2,500sq ft.

The East Sheen branch opened in November the same year, and Wandsworth the following month.

Lloyds Pharmacy

Further Lloyds Pharmacy branches are set to close in the next few days, following a string of closures.

The sites shutting are both ones inside Sainsbury's stores.

They are Sainsbury’s Oxford Road, Kidlington on July 23 and Sainsbury's St Ann Way, Gloucester on July 24.

Lloyds has already announced the closure of 237 of its pharmacies in Sainsbury’s supermarkets by the end of the year and closed 76 stores in 2022.


Boots is also set to start closing down the first of 300 stores next week.

The popular pharmacy chain has confirmed the locations of eight stores which will be shutting their doors for good.

It comes as part of wider closure plans that will see the chain's number of shops reduced from 2,200 to 1,900.

Boots has confirmed that all staff working in these locations will be offered alternative roles.

The two sites shutting in days are Heathside Road in Woking and the branch on the UEA campus.

Both are scheduled to shut at "the end of July".


Iceland will be closing another supermarket in the coming days.

The frozen food specialist has already shut more than half a dozen shops since February.

Right now, there are around 800 Iceland branches across the UK.

Its site in St David's Place, Swansea will be pulling down the shutters on July 29.

It follows the closures of 11 Iceland supermarkets earlier this year, with more coming in the next few months.


Co-op is pulling down the shutters on a store in July too.

Its Castle House shop in Sheffield will be pulling down the shutters for a final time on July 22.

It comes after Co-op shut a number of other branches earlier this year with others mooted for closure.

The chain closed its branch in Princess Drive, Grantham, in January while its store in Linthorpe Village, Middlesbrough closed the same month.

Meanwhile, its shop in Lodge Lane, Bridgnorth, closed in January and its Folkestone Central Train station branch shut for renovation.

However, in March, Co-op opened six new stores.

Meanwhile, another 44 banks are going to be shutting their doors later this year and into 2024.
