Department store chain Big W have announced they will close their Fairfield store as part of its network review.

The store, located in Neeta City, will continue trading for the next six months until January 2020. It's one of three Sydney stores along with Chullora and Auburn to close as part of the company's commitment to build a "strong and sustainable Big W that meets the needs of Australian families."

"These are not decisions we take lightly and we regret the impact the closures will have on affected team members," Big W managing director David Walker said.

"We would like to acknowledge the support of the communities of Chullora, Auburn and Fairfield and the hard work and commitment of our store team members.

"Supporting our team remains our priority and we are committed to doing the right thing by them.

"Over the next six months, we will support our team and explore redeployment opportunities with team members who choose to continue their career at Big W or with other Woolworths Group brands in the months ahead."

Big W intends to close up to 30 stores and two distribution centres over the next three years.
