Debenhams has announced when its last department stores - including the one in Coventry - will close for the final time after Boohoo online takeover.

The Coventry Debenhams store in the West Orchards shopping centre reopened on April 12, along with other non-essential retailers, with the store announcing a closing-down sale.

Some Debenhams stores, including the one in Nuneaton, will close this Saturday (May 8) in a move that was previously announced.

It has now been revealed others are to close on Wednesday, May 12, with the final stores closing on Saturday May 15.

Coventry is among the final stores that will shut-up shop on May 15.

Debenhams collapsed at the end of last year, with the closure of all its stores confirmed after Boohoo agreed to only buy its website and brand in a £55m rescue deal.

The group had already confirmed that 52 of its remaining 101 stores, including Nuneaton, would shut on Saturday, May 8.

It has now said the remaining 49 stores will shut for good on May 12 and May 15 following its liquidation.
