Stoke-on-Trent Debenhams to reopen for final closing down sale on Monday – and everything must go!



The Stoke-on-Trent Debenhams store will be reopening its doors on Monday – for a final closing down sale.

The department chain has a branch in the Potteries Centre, in Hanley, which is now set to reopen from April 12 as lockdown restrictions are eased.

The high street retailer, which collapsed last year, has announced that all stores across England and Wales will reopen.

There will be up to 70% off fashion and home products, and up to 50% off beauty and fragrance lines to try and flog off its stock, reports The Mirror.

The stores are reopening as part of Debenhams’ final stock liquidation process and will continue to trade for a limited number of weeks until the stock in the stores is fully cleared.

Debenhams stores will then start to close permanently from May 2, with the stock clearance completed and final stores expected to close by May 15.

All stores have been made Covid-secure, with appropriate hygiene and social distancing measures in place.

A spokesman said: “This is the last chance for customers in England and Wales to visit their local Debenhams before sadly our stores close for good.

“We will be reopening with a fantastic range of offers and discounts across all of our customers’ favourite brands and products.

“Stocks are limited and expected to sell out quickly so customers should visit their nearest store quickly to avoid disappointment.

“We are very grateful for the efforts of our staff who have worked so hard throughout the most difficult of circumstances to keep the business trading.”

Fashion retailer Boohoo rescued Debenhams in a £55million deal earlier this year.

However, it will not take on any of the firm’s remaining 118 stores or its workforce.

Boohoo said it was a ‘transformational deal’ and a ‘huge step’. But the deal means that up to 12,000 jobs at the department store chain are set to go.
