Liverpool’s Debenhams closing date confirmed with 80% off sale

High street retailer Debenhams has confirmed the date for when its remaining stores including Liverpool will close for good.

The retail giant went into administration in April 2019 as they struggled to adapt to rising competition from online rivals and a decline in high street shopping.

The company announced last year that they would be closing the doors and 52 stores, including Debenhams on Lord Street in Southport which closed in January this year, have already shut.

The Liverpool ONE store remains open for now but Debenhams confirmed that all of its remaining 49 stores will close on either May 12 or 15 for the very last time.

Liverpool’s Lord Street store is set to close on Saturday, May 15.

The retailer announced that shoppers will find unmissable discounts across all stores, with up to 80% off all fashion and home and up to 70% off beauty and fragrance while stocks last.

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

A spokesperson for Debenhams said: “We are now heading into the final days of our closing down sale and this is the very last chance for our customers to take advantage of some incredible deals.

“With up to 80% off across our remaining stores, customers are urged to shop now while stocks last. Over the next 10 days, Debenhams will close its doors on the high street for the final time in its 242-year history.

“Our sincere thanks go out to all of our colleagues and customers who have joined us on this journey. We hope to see you all one last time in stores before we say a final goodbye to the UK high street.”
