Maplin is a specialist retail chain for home electronics and accessories. In February 2018 administrators were appointed and they hoped to find a buyer for the business. Unfortunately at the time of writing no buyer had been found and the process of closing the over 200 stores has begun. Already the Kidderminster branch shown here has closing down notices on its windows with discounts of at least 20% off everything. The chain employs over 2300 staff and it is rather a unique business. No other store seems to cover the range of items it does, though many bits of its business are duplicated by others. Its disappearance is likely to be felt by many shoppers. It joins a surprising number of national chains who have collapsed in recent years and had stores on this particular retail park.
