About Debenhams and Debenhams Gift Cards

Debenhams Gift Card

Debenhams Gift Card

Debenhams started from a single London store selling drapes in 1778, then called ‘Clark’s’. William Debenham joined as a partner in 1813.  The store traded successfully and eventually renamed as Debenhams Limited in 1905.  Debenhams expanded by opening new stores and acquiring other famous department store groups, including Browns of Chester.  At one point Debenhams owned Harvey Nichol’s famous Knightsbridge store.

There are 178 Debenhams stores in the UK and Ireland, and several franchised Debenhams units overseas.  Whilst many department stores have recently fallen out of favour, Debenhams continues to succeed through its own mix of designer brands and exclusive designers available only through their stores. Click here to find your nearest Debenhams store.
