A shop unit which previously housed former High Street giant Wilko has hit the market.

The 42,377 sq ft shop on Slough High Street is looking for a new tenant after Wilko closed on September 21.

The high-street giant had been fighting to stay afloat when the chief executive of Wilko announced in August that the retailer had "no choice" but to enter into administration after leaving "no stone unturned" in efforts to revive the business.

A full list of store closures was revealed on September 12, with Slough among the earlier closures.

The neighbouring Wilko store in Maidenhead also closed on September 17, but reopened on September 30 as a Poundland.

Darren Kay, Poundland retail director, said: “We’re pleased to be able to re-open so quickly – not least because our ambition is to provide job opportunities for former Wilko colleagues.

“Of course, we’re not yet in a position to offer our fullest ranges in these stores, but we know customers will appreciate a shop that’s open, trading and employing colleagues to one that’s got its shutters closed.”

While Poundland stepped in to save many of the stores from mass redundancies and closures, Slough Wilko has not received any help from the budget retailer.

Now the old Wilko store stands empty and can be seen up for let on Completely Retail's website.

It states: "The subject property is arranged over three floors with a large glazed frontage onto the pedestrianised high street, providing excellent visibility.

"The premises benefit from excellent ground-to-ceiling heights across all floors of the building. The building could be split depending upon the demand."

The price of the unit will be given upon application by interested parties.

Wilko is not part of the Queensmere redevelopment, however, the lettings brochure advises of British Land and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority's plans to develop the area over a 14 year period.

When Slough's Wilko closed, many members of the community expressed upset.

Diana Humphreys, 43, from Slough, said she is "gutted" at the company's fall into administration.

"I'm always in here. I get all my gardening stuff in here, whenever I'm decorating this is the first place I come," she said.

"It's so much more reasonably priced than the bigger DIY stores."

Margaret Ramsay, 88, from Slough, came into the shop regularly for knitting wool and gardening supplies.

"It's a shame, we don't have many more shops left like this," she said.

"I feel very sorry for the shop assistance, for the town itself - it's a crying shame."
