Sale on at Debenhams

The Debenhams store at the end of Princes Street was built on the site of the Touchstone public house which closed in 1974.

Debenhams was founded in London in 1778 by Flint and Clark under the name 'Flint and Clark' and there were a number of partner and name changes before the store became 'Debenhams Limited' in 1905.

As of January 2013, the company owns and operates 154 stores in the United Kingdom and 11 in Ireland. A further 6 stores trade under the Magasin name in Denmark.

It is best known for its clothing, cosmetics and home ware.
