Debenhams store closures put at least 1,200 jobs at risk

Struggling retailer plans to shut a total of 50 shops but has
yet to confirm all locations

Debenhams has
dealt a fresh blow to Britain’s struggling high streets as it
announced
plans to close 22 department stores
in 2020, putting 1,200 jobs
at risk.

The retailer intends to shut a total of 50 of its
worst-performing stores but has yet to confirm the locations of the
remaining shops at risk. The full closure plan, which equates to
one in three of its stores, is expected to trigger several thousand
job losses.
