Debenhams closing down sale – the Kempton armchair, Clovis lamp and more with up to 70% off

Debenhams is having a huge closing down sale - hurry up as the queues are HUGE

It's sad to report, but British retail mainstay Debenhams is closing down for good. The 242-year-old retailer is shutting all of its 124 UK shops after a last-ditch attempt to save the stores fell through. This has sparked a sudden Debenhams closing down sale, featuring virtually all its stock.

Debenham's launched an in-store clearance sale on Wednesday (2 December) at 7 am, following the end of a month-long nationwide lockdown across England.

But online, colossal interest in items - discounted up to as much as 70% - has forced Debenhams to set up long, virtual queues to help manage the overwhelming traffic its website is receiving.
