Homewares giant Wilko is weighing up a move to open a new store in Truro.

According to local reports from Cornwall Live, Wilko has been linked to take the vacant unit on Boscawen Street, which used to occupy homewares chain BHS before the store closed earlier this year following its demise.

News of the rumoured opening gathered pace after staff at neighbouring outlet, Timpson were told that Wilko’s would be moving into the premises, claim the local media source.

Established back in 1930, Wilko, which used to be known as Wilkinson’s, has 394 stores across the UK and has already opened around eight stores during 2016.
