The end is nigh for another 108 Dick Smith stores across Australia and New Zealand.

The receivers, Ferrier Hodgson, have announced, as part of the controlled closure of the Dick Smith business, that 53 Australian stores will close progressively between April 23 and 26, 2016.

All remaining 55 New Zealand stores will close between April 24 and April 30.

Stores began closing in March when the doors shut on Mornington in Victoria (March 18) and Whyalla in South Australia (March 22).

A further 35 stores were then notified of their exact closure date. Outlets in Tamworth, Hurstville and Lake Haven in NSW and Glenwood, Thames, Invercargill, Alexandra, Orewa, Masterson and Levin in New Zealand closed on April 9.

The following outlets are scheduled to close on April 16: Penrith, Rhodes, Campbelltown, Carnes Hills, Winston Hills, Rockdale, Marrickville, Wollongong in NSW; Toowoomba and Airlie Beach in Queensland; Glenelg, North Park, Golden Grove and Mount Barker in South Australia; Kingston in Tasmania; and Wendouree, Mildura, Sale, Cannington, Riverton and Carousel in Victoria.

Online retailer Kogan.com has purchased Dick Smith's online retail business, and will take over from June 1.

Kogan plans to keep the legacy of the Dick Smith brand and run it as an online-only consumer electronics retailer.

Despite a significant amount of interest, the receivers failed to find a buyer for the 363 Dick Smith outlets that are closing down across A/NZ, impacting close to 3000 employees.

In January, receivers announced that 27 David Jones Electronics Powered by Dick Smith concession stores would close. In early March, Move Airport stores located at Sydney International Airport were also shut down.More to follow.
