Bargain hunters get ready – Debenhams in York is to open for one last time, and everything must go.
The Monks Cross department store is one of 97 across the UK which are to reopen their doors for a ‘fire sale’ before the brand disappears from the high street for good.
It will be offering up to 70% off fashion and homewares and up to 50% off beauty and fragrance in its final closing down sale.
Stores will then begin to close from 2 May, with the process completed 13 days later.
The former Debenhams store on Davygate in York city centre, which closed back in 2019, is not reopening.
A statement from Debenhams 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.”
It said “stocks are limited and expected to sell out quickly”, adding: “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.”
In January, online fashion retailer Boohoo said it had bought the brand and website of department Debenhams for £55 million. But it did not take on the company’s 118 stores.
