Debenhams to close stores from next year
Lenders say they'll shut 22 stores from 2020- but plan to close 50 in total.
1200 jobs are thought to be at risk.
Lenders have stepped in to take charge of the retail giant, after it began struggling with debts.
It's their first announcement since taking over.
Gary Carter, GMB National Officer, said:
“Although many will not be surprised by the closure announcements - this is devastating news for Debenhams employees who have battled hard to keep the company afloat.
“They will join the tens of thousands of retail workers made redundant in recent months.
“It’s a travesty, yet this Government does nothing."Published: by Radio NewsHub
