CDS Superstores is actively seeking partnerships with landlords across the UK to further the store rollout programme.  

The Range acquired the brand and intellectual property rights of Wilko in September 2023. 

The deal did not encompass the physical store locations. 

Pepco Group, which owns Poundland in the UK, has entered an agreement with Wilko’s administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers and will potentially take over 71 store leases following the completion of lease assignments expected in early autumn 2024. 

The administrators closed 52 Wilko stores, resulting in 1,016 redundancies.
