History[edit] 18th and 19th centuries[edit] The business was formed in 1778 by William Clark, who began trading at 44 Wigmore Street in London as a drapers' store.[2] In 1813, William Debenham became a partner and the corporate name changed to Clark & Debenham. The shop was later renamed Cavendish House and carried drapery, silks, haberdashery, millinery, hosiery, lace and family mourning goods. As the trade grew, the partners determined to expand the business by opening provincial branches in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, and Harrogate, Yorkshire, England.[3] By 1823, Clark & Debenham had opened a small drapery business at 3 Promenade Rooms, Cheltenham, selling a selection of silks, muslins, shawls, gloves, lace and fancy goods. The new shop flourished. In 1837, Clark retired from the business and Debenham assumed two of his most trusted staff, William Pooley and John Smith, as partners, trading in both London and Cheltenham as Debenham, Pooley & Smith. By 1840, the management of the Cheltenham branch appears to have been given to Clement Freebody, Debenham's brother-in-law. Around 1843, another branch shop was launched in Harrogate.[3] Extended and refurbished premises opened in Cheltenham in October 1844. Pooley and Smith retired from the business in 1851 when Debenham took his son, William, and Clement Freebody into partnership, trading as Debenham, Son & Freebody. At this time all three shops in London, Cheltenham and Harrogate were trading in similar goods and issued a joint catalogue, called the Fashion
Fashion
Book, that was the basis of an extensive mail-order trade. In 1876 when Freebody retired, a new partnership, Debenham & Hewitt, was formed. George Hewitt appears to have worked at the Cheltenham store as a draper's assistant during the early 1860s but details of his subsequent career are not known. By 1883, George Hewitt was the sole owner of the Cheltenham business, Frank and William Debenham having withdrawn to manage the London store as a separate concern.[3] 20th century[edit]

The business was incorporated as Debenhams
Debenhams
Limited in 1905.[4] The modern Debenhams
Debenhams
group grew from the acquisition of department stores in towns and cities throughout the UK, under the leadership of its chairman, Ernest Debenham. The first of these purchases, Marshall & Snelgrove at Oxford Street
Oxford Street
in London, was acquired through an on sided merger in 1919. Later purchases included Harvey Nichols
Harvey Nichols
in London's Knightsbridge
Knightsbridge
in 1920.[5] Most of the acquired stores retained their former identities until a unified corporate image was rolled out. The company was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1928, shortly after it had purchased fellow retail group Drapery Trust.[6] In 1976 the company acquired Browns of Chester. It remains the only UK store to have retained an individual identity.[5] The business diversified during the 1970s buying South East based supermarket group Cater Brothers in 1972, after the death of its chairman Leslie Cater. Using the new purchasing power Debenhams
Debenhams
modernised its 40 food halls within its stores, branding them Cater's Food Halls, and opened two new Cater superstores. However the business declined in the intense marketplace and in 1979 the chain was sold to Allied Suppliers
Allied Suppliers
who converted the Cater stores into their Presto format.[7] Debenhams
Debenhams
was targeted three times during the 1980s by the Animal Liberation Front in protest at the sale of animal furs in stores. Stores in Romford, Luton, and Harrow were fire-bombed by members, the worst attack being on the Luton
Luton
store. As a result, the company stopped selling clothes with animal furs.[8] It was alleged by Caroline Lucas MP in a debate in Westminster Hall
Westminster Hall
that Bob Lambert, a then undercover police officer, planted the fire bomb that caused £340,000 worth of damage to the Harrow branch of Debenhams
Debenhams
in 1987. It is unclear if anything has come of these allegations as of March 2014.[8][9][10][11] In 1985 the company was acquired by the Burton Group.[5] Following the closure of the store in Dudley
Dudley
in January 1981 and the Birmingham store in 1983, the company's only store in the West Midlands for the next six years was a town centre store in Walsall. On 4 November 1989, it opened a store at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre
Merry Hill Shopping Centre
in Brierley Hill.[12] Debenhams
Debenhams
demerged from the Burton Group
Burton Group
in January 1998 and was once again listed as a separate company on the London Stock Exchange.[13] It expanded under the leadership of Belinda Earl who was appointed CEO in 2000.[14] 21st century[edit]

opened its largest British store on 4 September 2003, at the new Bull Ring shopping centre in Birmingham.[15] The new store contains 19,230 sq m and opened 20 years after the company closed its Birmingham
Birmingham
city centre store due to declining trade.[16] A private consortium named Baroness Retail
Retail
Limited acquired the company in November 2003,[17] and it returned to a listing on the London Stock Exchange in 2006. The consortium comprised CVC Capital Partners, Texas Pacific Group, Merrill Lynch
Merrill Lynch
Global Private Equity, and management.[18]

The company purchased the brand name and stock of Principles in March 2009 after the business entered administration. Principles operated concessions within 121 Debenhams
Debenhams
stores, and was subsequently relaunched by Ben de Lisi as part of the Designers at Debenhams range.[19] In November 2009, Debenhams
Debenhams
acquired the Danish department store group Magasin Du Nord for £12.3 million.[20] The company operates six stores in Denmark under the Magasin brand.[21] In July 2010 Debenhams
Debenhams
purchased the 115 Faith concessions trading within its stores, after Faith entered administration.[22] In April 2012 the company announced it would be building 14 new stores, and was in negotiations over a further 25 sites in the UK.[23] Debenhams agreed to become the anchor store at the Riverside shopping centre in Shrewsbury.[24] By September 2012, the company announced that like-for-like sales had risen by 3.3% in the six months up to that date.[25] Debenhams
Debenhams
moved to a new headquarters in 2013, in Brock Street, London. The company moved to a new building, built by British Land
British Land
in Regent's Place. The company leased 174,500 square feet (16,000 m2) of office space from British Land
British Land
for 25 years.[26] The company began a refurbishment of its flagship store in Oxford Street in 2013, which involved the installation of 180,000 aluminium tiles on the exterior of the building that appears to ripple with the wind. An existing floor was also converted to become a trading floor. The total cost of the refurbishment was in the region of £40 million, of which Debenhams
Debenhams
contributed £25 million. The owner of the building, British Land, also contributed towards the cost.[27] The refurbishment is due to be completed by February 2014.[28] The company's trading statement for the 17 weeks up to 28 December 2013 was released on 31 December 2013, and revealed a reduction in pre-tax profit from £115 million to £85 million.[29] On 2 January 2014, the company's chief financial officer Simon Herrick resigned, following criticism of his financial decisions.[30] On 13 January 2014 4.6% of Debenhams
Debenhams
shares were bought by Sports Direct, the retailer run by Mike Ashley. The stock market purchase of 56.8 million shares (worth around £46m) was made without the prior knowledge of the Debenhams
Debenhams
board. Sports Direct
Sports Direct
stated at the time it intends to be a supportive share holder. The Debenhams
Debenhams
board responded by stating they are open-minded with regard to exploring operational opportunities to improve its performance.[31][32] Sports Direct
Sports Direct
sold its shares on 16 January 2014, although they took out an option to buy further shares up to a total of 6.6%.[33] In August 2017, it emerged that Ashley had secured 21% of the shares which gave him over 10% of voting rights in the company.[34] During 2017 Debenhams
Debenhams
opened two new stores, one in Stevenage
Stevenage
and one in Wolverhampton. The 80,000 sq ft Stevenage
Stevenage
store was opened on 24 August 2017 at Roaring Meg Retail
Retail
and Leisure Park by Celebrity fashion designer Julien MacDonald and local hero Jean Robinson, who had won a competition for the privilege. The store is the first to be designed under the vision of CEO Sergio Bucher, with a new layout and format with the emphasis on encouraging people to stay longer. [35] The second store to open during 2017 is the new 93,000 sq ft store at Wolverhampton's Mander Centre. The store was opened on 12 October 2017 as part of the centre's £35 million refurbishment, it is also Debenhams' first store in Wolverhampton. It is only the second to feature the new layout previously only seen in the Stevenage
Stevenage
store, and only the second to feature the companies new deli-restaurant format Loaf & Bloom, only previously seen at Milton Keynes. [36] In February 2018, the company announced a reduction of up to 320 store management roles across the business by the end of March.[37] Sports Direct increased its holding in the company to 29.7% on 2 March, just below the level whereby it would be required to submit a formal takeover approach.[38] Products and services[edit]

Debenhams
announced the launch of four new designer names to its fashion range; Jonathan Saunders, Preen, Jonathan Kelsey, and Roksanda Ilincic, who will be working with the retailer on a new concept called Edition.[41]

and Warehouse. In June 2014, the company announced a trial of Sports Direct
Sports Direct
concessions in its Harrow and Southsea
Southsea
stores, which if successful would be expanded to other stores. This followed the purchase of a stake in Debenhams
Debenhams
by Mike Ashley, the owner of Sports Direct, in January 2014.[42] Later that year, Debenhams
Debenhams
also launched trials of Costa Coffee and Mothercare
Mothercare
concessions within stores.[43][44] In October 2016, the company announced it would begin to focus less on clothing and more on food, beauty products and gifts.[45] It also hired the former lighting buying team of collapsed rival BHS to begin introducing new lighting departments in stores.[46] Debenhams
Debenhams
followed this in December 2016 with a plan to discontinue its Betty Jackson Black ladies fashion brand, and significantly reduce its Jeff Banks menswear range in favour of expanding the Hammond & Co. brand.[47] The company operates retail websites in the UK and Ireland, as well as a mobile-enabled website and mobile apps that allow customers to shop the online range and scan product barcodes in store.[48] Debenhams
Debenhams
provide store card and credit card services, operated by NewDay. Insurance products are also provided under the Debenhams
Debenhams
brand by other financial companies. Debenhams
Debenhams
also operate bureaux de change in selected stores. The company also operates a loyalty card programme, branded the Debenhams
Debenhams
Beauty Club, where customers can collect points with the purchase of health and beauty products.[49] Stores[edit] United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark[edit] As of 2015, the company owns and operates 178 stores in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark. Stores in Denmark trade under the Magasin du Nord
Magasin du Nord
brand.[50] Stores in Ireland are operated by Debenhams Ireland, which is a subsidiary of Debenhams
Debenhams
plc; most of these stores were formerly branded Roches Stores.[51] Debenhams
Debenhams
occupies the most sites of any of the traditional department store groups in the UK. The majority of the original trading names of the stores, in each of their respective locations, were replaced with the "Debenhams" name during the 1970s. All department stores in the group now trade as "Debenhams" (although the store in Chester
Chester
is still dual-signed as Debenhams
Debenhams
and Browns of Chester). New stores are usually located within wider town and regional shopping centre developments. Stores amalgamated into the group include:
