Exact dates Homebase, House of Fraser and Iceland stores will close in September

A number of supermarkets, homeware stores and fashion retailers have closed down brick-and-mortar sites across the UK this year.

While many retailers started to pull the shutters on stores early in 2023, there’s no end in sight for some brands which will lose more stores in September.

Iceland, Homebase, and House of Fraser are among those that will bid farewell to shops in a matter of weeks, with some going as early as next Friday.

High energy costs and a shift to shopping online after the pandemic have taken their toll on many shops, but others are closing stores as part of long-term strategies to optimise their portfolio.

Here’s a full list of the UK branches closing this September.

Home and garden giant Homebase will close its Newport store for good on Friday, September 8, 2023.

It will mark the sixth branch to close in Wales since 2018, during which three stores closed within the capital, Cardiff.

Closures aren’t new to the DIY and garden specialist, which has closed a staggering 93 stores since it was taken over by Hilco Capital five years ago.

Renowned as the go-to budget supermarket for frozen and long-life goods, Iceland has a loyal customer base across its 900 stores.

However, Britons may see their local branch disappear after the supermarket announced that it would be shutting a handful of stores in 2023.

Three sites will go in September, with the first being the Park Street site in Llanelli, Wales on Saturday, September 2.

The second Iceland branch to close next month will be the Birkenhead site in Merseyside, Wirral on Saturday, September 16, closely followed by the Crewe store in Cheshire, which will go on the same day.

House of Fraser

It’s not just supermarkets and grocers that will lose stores in September. Major department store House of Fraser will bid farewell to one of its largest branches next month.

The British retailer confirmed that its Guildford site will pull the shutters down on Saturday, September 30, just weeks after the Solihull site closed on Monday, August 28.

Earlier in January, the department store closed its site in High Wycombe, which came shortly after London’s Westfield Shepherd’s Bush site was removed from the shopping centre.
