Wilko Sunderland

Wilko swung to a loss at the beginning of the year, as the tail end of lockdowns, supply chain disruption and plummeting consumer demand all took their toll.

In the year to January 29, 2022, Wilko reported a loss of £36.8m while EBITDA nearly halved from £48.3m to £24.2m. Like-for-like sales declined 3.1% year on year to £1.32bn.
