Falkirk Debenhams store closes for good
Debenhams has unveiled its closure plans for UK stores – but Falkirk’s branch has already gone for good.
The Howgate Shopping Centre premises have been completely cleared out and shut down, the High Street facility has confirmed.
Debenhams went into administration for a second time last April.
Administrators began a wind-down of its UK operation and chains remained open for in-store and online trading prior to the coronavirus lockdown at the turn of the year.
While its stores in England are being reopened temporarily from today, a decision had already been taken not to reopen the Falkirk shop, or the Stirling branch in The Thistles Shopping Centre.
Debenhams confirmed its 15 Scottish stores and its flagship shop on London’s Oxford Street will not reopen.
