Discount goods retailer Poundworld is to close a further 40 stores across the UK, resulting 531 more job losses.

You can view the list of stores affected below.

The beleaguered retailer, which went into administration in June, said the stores would close on 24 July.

The latest announcement brings the total number of Poundworld branches closing to 145, and redundancies to almost 1,797

Administrators Deloitte said they were still looking for buyers for all, or parts, of the remaining business.

On Tuesday afternoon, Deloitte said staff affected by the latest closures have been informed of redundancy.

Joint administrator Clare Boardman said: “We would like to thank all the employees for their continued support and commitment during this difficult time.

“We are keeping staff appraised of developments as they happen.”

This is the third announcement in seven days made regarding Poundworld closures.
