Bathstore outlets in Dundee and Perth are not among the 44 shops that will be rescued by home and garden giant Homebase.
The shops in Dundee’s Clepington Road and Perth’s Glenearn Road will close in the next two to three months after current stock is sold.
Bathstore entered administration a month ago, throwing the future of more than 500 staff in doubt.
Since then 159 redundancies have already been made at Bathstore since BDO were appointed as administrators last month.
Homebase’s move to cherry-pick 44 of the chain’s 135 shops will save 175 jobs. This leaves around 200 staff’s futures in doubt.
Bathstore’s demise was blamed on several months of difficult trading, as well as the failure of talks to find a buyer.
Homebase has said it will roll out a number of Bathstore concessions into its stores over the coming 18 months.
Chief executive Damian McGloughlin said the acquisition “complements Homebase’s reinvigorated range” and said the business had been working to reintroduce popular ranges.
“As a result of the hard work of the Homebase team, our turnaround is ahead of plan,” he said.
“While we still have a significant amount of work to do, the customer response to our new ranges has been very encouraging and we are on track to break even this year against a loss of over £100 million last year.”
Administrators BDO declined to comment.
