MORE than £500,000 is owed to four Basingstoke businesses by Wilko, it can be revealed.

According to its state of affairs, published on Companies House, the former high street retail giant owes £514,501 to four businesses in the borough.

The largest amount - £358,978 - is owed to Linde MH UK Ltd, based in Kingsclere Road, Basingstoke.

The company is a leading manufacturer of material handling equipment and a provider of logistics solutions that optimise processes.

A total of £124,063 is owed to Mercona GB Ltd, based at Borlase House, in Manar Farm, Cliddesden.

The private company specialises in own label and exclusive brand development, working in conjunction with major UK and northern European retailers.

Wilko also owes £29,218 to Childs Farm, based in Belvedere House, in Basing View.

The award-winning British brand specialises in creating sensitive skincare products for babies and children, made using vegan, cruelty-free and dermatologist-approved products.

Wilko owes £2,242 to Elis, a commercial workwear laundry service, which is listed on the document with a PO Box address in Basingstoke.

Documents released by Wilko’s administrators reveal the budget retail chain owes £157,261,588 to its creditors.

Hundreds of businesses are owed money by the company which collapsed last month after 93 years on the high street.

Administrator PwC was forced to sell off Wilko’s assets after failing to secure a rescue deal, resulting in branches closing across the country, including the Basingstoke Wilko which shut on Thursday, October 5.

Wilko employed 12,500 staff and ran 400 shops but was forced to appoint administrators in August after coming under pressure from weak consumer spending and debts to suppliers.

Roughly 70 stores were sold to the owner of Poundland and a further 51 Wilko sites were sold to B&M European Value Retail.

The Range, another value retailer, bought Wilko’s brand and online assets.

The deals did not, however, protect the jobs at those stores, with the collapse resulting in around 12,500 redundancies.
