BOLTON-branch of Debenhams will shut on May 4 with stock being reduced by up to 80 per cent, store bosses have announced today.

The department store is one of 27 stores in England and Wales to shut its doors for the final time on May 2 or 4.

Shoppers will be able to bag discounts of up to 80 per cent of fashion and home and up to 70 per cent off beauty and fragrance as the last remaining stock is cleared.

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

A spokesperson for Debenhams said: “With such great bargains on offer, it’s no wonder our stock is selling out incredibly fast.

"Time is running out for shoppers to take advantage of the incredible discounts being offered at these 27 stores.”

The Bury-branch of the chain store will also shut on May 4.

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