Boohoo purchased the Debenhams brand and website of department store chain for £55 million but it did not take on the company’s 118 stores - meaning around 12,000 jobs were likely to be lost. There is also a Debenhams store in Briggate.
More than 1,800 jobs were lost after sister fashion chains Oasis and Warehouse said they would not reopen any of their stores again last year. Boohoo has bought the brands which are now sold online-only.
The Warehouse store will not reopen, after Boohoo bought the brand and Oasis. The brands will now be sold online.
All Topshop stores are set to shut for good after Deloitte, administrators for Arcadia group, sold the brand and stock to online retailer Asos. There were three Topshop and Topman stores in Leeds - located in Briggate, White Rose Shopping Centre and Kirkstall Bridge shopping park.
