Debenhams confirms King's Lynn store will not re-open after lockdown





One of Britain's best known companies has this afternoon confirmed that its store in Lynn is to close for good.

The Debenhams store in the town's High Street has been shut for several weeks, because of the coronavirus lockdown.

But, after speculation about its future began to circulate this morning, the company has now confirmed the site's fate.

Debenhams has confirmed its Lynn store will not re-open after the coronavirus shutdown.

A spokesman said a short time ago: “Debenhams can confirm that its store in King's Lynn will not be reopening, as we were unable to agree appropriate terms with the landlord of the building.

"This is in no way a reflection on the commitment and professionalism of our colleagues which has been exemplary, and we will work with them to support them through this process.”

The future of the chain has been in doubt ever since it called in administrators last month.

Although bosses said at the time that the move was intended to safeguard the company's position during the shutdown, the closure of several other stores across the country has already been confirmed in recent weeks.
