After a review into the loss-making franchise, parent company Woolworths announced that Big W will close 30 stores across Australia over next three years.
The brand has also announced that it will be closing two distribution centres.
Big W estimates that the decision to close 30 stores will result in a $370 million loss, a revelation shared with the Australian share market on Monday morning.
The Woolworths Group has now finally confirmed some of the Big W stores that will be closing.
In New South Wales, the Sydney BIg W stores located in Chullora, Auburn and Fairfield will close their doors in January 2020 as the first step in the department store's cost-saving strategy. However, the store will continue trade for the next 6 months.
“These are not decisions we take lightly and we regret the impact the closures will have on affected team members,” David Walker, Managing Director of BIG W, said in a statement.
