DEBENHAMS in Warrington will be reopening its doors for the last time in a bid to clear remaining stock.

Bosses at the department store have confirmed that shops in England and Wales will reopen on Monday, following the latest government guidance, to complete its final closing down sale.

That includes Golden Square's large 'anchor' store but the unit may not remain empty for long as, despite its size, other businesses are said to be in talks to take it over. 

The Debenhams sale will offer limited-time bargains, with up to 70 per cent off fashion and home products, and up to 50 per cent off beauty and fragrance lines.

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.

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

Ian Cox, Golden Square director, said: "Debenhams will be open for a number of weeks selling through stock before permanently closing.

"The other thing I can say about that unit is that we do have interest which is good news."

Earlier this year it was announced that Debenhams was to close all branches after online retailer Boohoo acquired the brand in a £55million deal.

A spokesperson for Debenhams added: “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."
