Debenhams, Liverpool ONE is to reopen from 15 June


Debenhams to reopen 50 stores in England on June 15 including its department store in Liverpool ONE.

Debenhams has said it will reopen 50 of its stores in England on June 15 as coronavirus restrictions are eased.

But the retailer, which recently entered administration, said it will only reopen 120 stores after a series of closures, having entered the lockdown with 142 stores.

Plans are underway to start the reopening of Liverpool City Centre including Liverpool ONE from 15 June.

Due to the sheer size of Liverpool ONE, its open air layout and wide shopping boulevards, the team expect people to be able to move around freely while easily observing the 2-metre safe distancing rule. Visitors will be advised to keep to the left at all times and on the upper level of South John Street, with the feature balconies, a one-way walk-way will be in place.


Debenhams said preparations for the reopenings are “well under way”, with strict social distancing and hygiene procedures being implemented across all stores.

Steven Cook, managing director at Debenhams, said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming customers back to our stores in the coming weeks.

“From the installation of Perspex screens at till points to the roll-out of social distancing procedures and PPE, we have been working hard to ensure our colleagues and customers can work and shop with confidence.

“Our reopening plans follow the successful conclusion of lease negotiations on 120 stores, meaning that the vast majority of our stores will be reopening.”

Liverpool ONE is bringing in additional hand sanitiser stations which will be positioned across the estate, staff will have face masks and gloves and the toilets will be open with no charge.

As the number of shoppers allowed in stores at any one time is also likely to be restricted, designated queuing areas will be in place

There will also be revised opening hours between 10am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, allowing staff to avoid peak travel times. On a Sunday stores will continue to open as normal between 11am and 5pm.

“Be Patient, Be Kind, Be Responsible” is the message from Liverpool ONE ahead of its reopening.
