Debenhams has announced a full list of stores set to reopen on June 15. 

The retailer will open its doors to customers at 50 stores nationwide. 

Bolton's store does not feature on the list of the first 50 set to reopen, but bosses say dates for the remaining stores will be announced later this week.  

Preparations for reopening are well under way, with the firm planning to open the neighbouring store in Bury a week on Monday.

Strict social distancing and hygiene procedures are being implemented across all stores to conform with the latest government guidance.

Steven Cook, managing director at Debenhams, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming customers back to our stores in the coming weeks.

"From the installation of perspex screens at till points to the roll-out of social distancing procedures and PPE, we have been working hard to ensure our colleagues and customers can work and shop with confidence.

"Our reopening plans follow the successful conclusion of lease negotiations on 120 stores, meaning that the vast majority of our stores will be reopening.”

Not all of the firm's sites will reopen, after the retailer plunged into administration in April.

Most of the 142 stores across the country will remain operational, but the firm has already confirmed 12 stores will not be welcoming customers back.
