The major High Street retailer is shutting the stores as part of a dramatic rescue plan, putting 1,200 jobs at risk.
Debenhams is rolling out the closures as part of the controversial Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA).
This is an insolvency procedure – aimed at rescuing struggling chains – that sees debts restructured and stores closed.
It comes just weeks after it collapsed into administration before being bought out by its lenders.
The full list of 22 stores set to close, should the CVA be approved by enough creditors, are:
- Birmingham Fort
- Great Yarmouth
- Welwyn Garden City
The stores are set to close after Christmas, with Debenhams also planning to close another 30 stores – making a total of 50 – within three years.
