THE Focus DIY store in Retford will close its doors for good on Sunday.

The store on Moorgate opened seven years ago but is closing after the company went into administration.

It is not clear what is happening to the store as Ernst & Young continue to try and find buyers.

The closing-down sale began nearly three weeks ago after Focus’s administrators had failed to find a buyer for the group’s remaining 123 stores.

The administrator did save some 900 jobs by selling more than 50 stores to rivals including B&Q and Wickes since the company went into administration earlier this month.

As the store gets closer to its closing date of Sunday 19th June, the discounts will increase and will reach 70 per cent off on some products.

The Retford store is one of 10 stores closing around the UK. Other stores will continue trading until further notice.

It may close its doors early if all the stock is sold.
