Leaked list shows Guildford and Aldershot Mothercare's WILL shut

Published at 10:16am 18th May 2018.

A leaked list has revealed Mothercare stores in both Guildford and Aldershot are set to close.

On Thursday (May 18), the baby care chain confirmed 50 stores across the UK would shut. 

According to the document, tweeted by Scottish company Ditchfield Property, branches in our area are among those shutting. 

There is also a store in Weybridge - but that one isn't on the list. 

It's thought the shops will close over the next 12 months.

Eagle Radio has contacted Mothercare for a comment, after a statement issued to us on Thursday said the company could not confirm the exact closures.

It said: "We regret having to close stores and the impact this will have on colleagues. However, we had no alternative to executing a CVA.

"The business was in an unsustainable situation and was in clear need of an appropriate resolution and today's comprehensive measures provide a renewed and stable financial structure for the business, and will allow Mothercare to accelerate its adaptation to the shifting dynamic towards online".

In a new statement on Friday, a spokesperson added: "We can’t comment on individual store closures until all staff have been informed, which is our absolute priority.

"We regret having to close stores and the impact this will have on colleagues. However, we had no alternative to executing a CVA.

"The business was in an unsustainable situation and was in clear need of an appropriate resolution".
