Discount mega-store Big W announced earlier in the year that they would be closing 30 Big w stores Australia wide after losing $110 million last financial year and $8 million in the first half of 2019.
After after months of speculation, Big W has announced which stores will close first - confirming that three stores from NSW will shut their doors for good in January.
The three stores that will close are situated at Auburn, Chullora and Fairfield - news that is sure to come as a huge blow to locals.
“These are not decisions we take lightly and we regret the impact the closures will have on affected team members,” Big W managing director David Walker confirmed to news.com.au in a statement.
“Over the next six months, we will support our team and explore redeployment opportunities with team members who choose to continue their career at Big W or with other Woolworths Group brands in the months ahead."
