*And more good news for the town came this month when Wilko announced the closure of 16 of its stores – but Doncaster's remains safe.

Roger Jenkins, GMB National Officer, said: "These closures are devasting .

“GMB calls on councils and landlords to review commercial leases and offer lower rents.

“Empty high streets and shopping centres are in no one’s interest and but with 400 shops a week closing, this is inevitable - unless the costs of premises can be reduced.”
