In our town it's a massive store but for a long time now the numbers through the door will have hardly paid for the electricity to keep the escalators going. It's a shame really as I prefer shopping for clothes by trying the things on in the shop. What really pisses me off is my kids routinely order clothes online, 10 of everything, take the lot out the bags try 'em on and send them all back... sometimes after they've worn them out for the party they were going to. "It doesn't cost anything dad!"Been on the cards for a while.
The Coronavirus is/was the final straw.
In their day, they were one of the top multi branch C.T.N's. ( Confectioners, Tobacconists & Newsagents)I vaguely remember the RS McColl's shops. Didn't they used to sell morning rolls and bran scones?

It was a darlin' store to be sure.

Why was there no pretty blonde or brunette at either the cleaning station or the checkout when I did some shopping at Tescos last week? Where do all the pretty ones go?
And again in April 20.Yes but Debenhams did originally go into Administration in April last year.
Several years ago I spent some 18 months in negotiations with a commercial landlord and can safely say that they would rather have empty boarded up retail units than reduce rents. Reason being is that by reducing the rent on one unit, especially and anchor unit, they are effectively reducing the value of their portfolio which in turn reduces the amount of credit that that portfolio can achieve.
Not so much circling the drain, as performing F1 laps around it. There will be c. 130 stores remaining for the time being.
