TWO Peacocks stores in Thurrock are shutting down with the loss of over 30 jobs.
The stores in Grays shopping arcade and Lakeside could close as soon as next week.
There will be 12 redundancies at Grays and 21 at Lakeside.
Edinburgh Woollen Mill, which is one of the UK’s largest high street chains, has taken over the failing chain.
The deal has protected around 6,000 jobs in the UK but alas not those in Thurrock.
