The department store, which was founded in 1778, entered administration in 2020.

Boohoo bought the Debenhams brand and website in January in £55 million deal that will see them continue to sell Debenhams products, but only online.

Both the Debenhams stores on Briggate and in the White Rose Shopping Centre will reopen for one final closing down sale.

Debenhams stores in Leeds will reopen for one last time for a closing down sale.

The Bradford and Wakefield stores will also reopen on April 12.

A spokesperson for Debenhams said: “This is the last chance for customers in England and Wales to visit their local Debenhams before sadly our stores close for good. We will be reopening with a fantastic range of offers and discounts across all of our customers’ favourite brands and products.

Stocks are limited and expected to sell out quickly so customers should visit their nearest store quickly to avoid disappointment. We are very grateful for the efforts of our staff who have worked so hard throughout the most difficult of circumstances to keep the business trading”.

There will be up to 70 per cent off fashion and home products, and up to 50 per cent off beauty and fragrance.

The stores are reopening as part of Debenhams’ final stock liquidation process and will continue to trade for a limited number of weeks until the stock in the stores is fully cleared.

The stores will start to close permanently from May 2, with the stock clearance completed and final stores expected to close by May 15.
