The former Wilko store in Ramsgate has gone on the rental market for £10,000 per calendar month.

The store in York Street is being marketed by Clarke and Crittenden.

Ramsgate’s Wilko store shut on September 25 last year. The Westwood Cross branch closed on September 12.

Wilko went into administration on August 10.

A deal was agreed to retain the Wilko name with The Range buying the brand, website and Intellectual Property but this did not include any physical stores. All 400 Wilko sites closed by early October 2023.

It is one of several prominent sites in Ramsgate that are currently empty including the former Argos store, Paynes grocers and HSBC bank. The WH Smith shop is being marketed through Miles & Barr Commercial and available for a new tenant and the Ramsgate branch of Barclays bank will shut for good on April 19th.

  1. who would want that ?. theres another big shop in the high street that has been empty since the previous owners upped and left ,theres a bank joining them soon , face it the town is dying , just walk around it and look

    • Best TDC & Ramsgate Town Council take note and come up with a regeneration scheme . Oh dear , I forgot , they could not give a toss about Ramsgate town as long as the seafront and Westwood X are thriving it’s hunky dory . For every business that gives up then it’s plain and obvious the rest will follow . Even the Charity Shops do not want a town shop as I noticed the old Argos in Westwood X is a home to one 😢😢😢

  2. Nice to see them being realistic & they wonder why the high streets are full of empty/boarded up shops.

  3. Come on let’s have a food clothes toy type off store was like Wilko Woolworths.any but not vape art studio cafe .

  4. The site is too big. Only a major retailer could afford it & they are moving to out-of-town sites. Demolish it. Smaller shopper units with flats above.
