Debenhams has confirmed three more of its stores will not reopen once lockdown restrictions are eased next week.
It revealed that three of its stores located in Intu shopping centres will close permanently after it failed to agree terms with the shopping centre owner.
The stores are located within Intu Metrocentre, Intu Watford and Intu Milton Keynes.
A Debenhams spokesperson said: “Sadly we have been unable to agree terms with the landlord. As a result these stores will not be re-opening in line with the rest of the chain next week.
“We greatly regret the effect on our colleagues, who have served our customers with commitment and dedication. Our customers can continue to shop with us online at www.debenhams.com or at other local stores from next week.”
The latest development means a total of 20 Debenhams outlets have now been closed permanently.
