B&Q in Alfreton is set to close next year, it has been confirmed.

The store in Notingham Road is one of 60 nationally which will shut over the next two years.

A B&Q spokesman said: “We have informed staff at B&Q in Alfreton that the store is planned to close in 2016.

“Our focus for the coming months is on redeploying as many colleagues as we can within B&Q and the Kingfisher Group.”

In March, Kingfisher Group, which owns B&Q, said: “B&Q can adequately meet customer needs from fewer stores.”

Kingfisher also announced a 15.2 per cent fall in pre-tax profit to £644million for 2014.
