Debenhams confirms Altrincham store closure

Debenhams have confirmed the Altrincham Stamford Quarter store is to close at the end of the year.

Debenhams will shut 22 stores around the country after Christmas and sadly Altrincham is one of them.

1,200 jobs will be lost giving staff a needless worry into the new year.

Altrincham Stamford Quarter is seemingly enjoying better times with more shops being filled and more people shopping, more events have been held in the town including the Tour of Britain which was a huge success for Altrincham and Trafford.

The remaining 30 stores in the UK is believed to also shut within the next three years.

Debenhams was first opened in 1778 by a man called William Clark as a Drapers store, it was in 1813 he linked up with William Debenham and the store name was changed to Clark and Debenham, Clark retired and in 1905 the name was changed to what we have always known as ‘Debenhams’

The firm had a bad 2018 compared to 2017 and had plans to get the business back on its feet again, you can see all the financial information and statements for 2018 HERE
