The famous Debenhams brand and website were sold to online retailer Boohoo in January, but not the company's shops.

Its remaining stores reopened on April 12 after lockdown for liquidators to sell off stock before closing for good.

Shoppers have been told there are major discounts as the stores sell off their last remaining stock.

All Debenhams stores have been made Covid-secure, with appropriate hygiene and social distancing measures in place.

"Time is running out for shoppers to take advantage of the incredible discounts being offered at these 25 stores.”

Debenhams' Bolton store will close on May 4.
