Debenhams marks milestone

Debenhams is commemorating 40 years of trading in Blackburn.

The department store group’s branch at The Mall Blackburn Shopping Centre in Lancashire is holding a variety of events this weekend (October 19-20) to help its 120 staff celebrate with customers including 20% off in the store restaurant, a special cardholder promotion, and a host of beauty offers along with make-up demonstrations. The management team will also be handing out some unexpected treats to shoppers throughout the celebrations.

 Scott Rimmer, manager of Debenhams Blackburn, commented: “We are delighted to be celebrating this important milestone with our staff and customers. Three of our colleagues have been working in the store since the very beginning, which is an incredible achievement, and this is a great opportunity to recognise their commitment and dedication over the past 40 years.

“We have lots of exciting activities so everyone can do a bit of celebrating with us. There will also be lots of offers throughout the store, some unexpected treats to surprise and delight our customers and, if they spend in our store this weekend, we’ll pay for their parking too.

“We hope that all our customers, past and present, will visit and take a look at all of the fabulous seasonal trends and gift ideas that we have to offer. We look forward to being part of the Blackburn community for many years to come.”

Debenhams trades out of around 240 stores in the UK and is available online in more than 90 countries at
