UK retailer Debenhams confirms 2,500 jobs to be cut

Tue, 11th Aug 2020 12:15

LONDON, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Struggling British department
store Debenhams is to cut 2,500 jobs, saying it had to align its
store costs with realistic trading expectations during the
COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have successfully reopened 124 stores, post-lockdown,
and these are currently trading ahead of management
expectations," it said in a statement on Tuesday.

"At the same time, the trading environment is clearly a long
way from returning to normal and we have to ensure our store
costs are aligned with realistic expectations."

The latest job cuts were first reported by The Sun.
