It is not yet known when the store will actually close.

The Homebase in Myton Road is remaining open.

The closure of the store comes after the news that plans were submitted for a Lidl on the site.

The plans were submitted to Warwick District Council's planning portal in May but have not yet gone before district council's planning committee.

Before the Lidl plans were submitted, the site also attracted the attention of another store.

In January 2018 plans were drawn up for a B&M store on the Homebase site but these plans were withdrawn in May 2018 and were not resubmitted.

Homebase have been contacted for a comment.
