B and Q set to close sixty stores across UK and Ireland

KINGFISHER, the owner of DIY chains B&Q and Screwfix, is to close about 60 B&Q stores in UK and Ireland over the next two years.

The company could not confirm to Your Thurrock whether the B&Q in Heron Way, West Thurrock was ear-marked for closure.

The firm said it would also close its "few loss making stores in Europe".

"Kingfisher has said for some time that B&Q UK & Ireland can adequately meet local customer needs from fewer stores and that some of the store should be smaller," it told the BBC in a statement.

The firm also announced a 15.2 per cent drop in pre-tax profit to £644m for 2014.
