Black Country BHS Store To Close At The End Of August

The branch of BHS at intu MerryHill will close at the end of August, administrators have confirmed.

The doomed department store went into administration in April and, despite efforts to save the company, administrators Duff & Phelps agreed in June that the company would be wound down.

BHS stores across the UK have been in close down sale mode over the last few weeks and the Merry Hill outlet has been earmarked to close on Sunday August 28, a spokesman for the administrators Duff and Phelps confirmed yesterday, although she added that “dates are provisional at the moment and may change”.

It is not known how many staff are affected by the Merry Hill closure but around 8,000 staff jobs nationwide are expected to be lost in total through the demise of the long-running High Street chain.

Merry Hill bosses have yet to confirm what will happen to the large two-storey corner store, currently occupied by BHS, which provides a walkway through from the mall to the multi-storey car park.
