Wildings department store at 165 Commercial Street viewed on August 11th 2018.

Two days earlier, the South Wales Argus reported that Newport's oldest department store will be closing its doors at the end of the year. Wildings has played a prominent role in the centre of Newport since 1874. Managing Director Peter James announced to staff on August 8th 2018 that after 144 years of trading, the department store will close just before Christmas. He said: "This is a very sad moment for the business but the losses we have been experiencing in recent years have been too great to sustain."
