High street retailer Debenhams has announced a Company Voluntary Arrangement, resulting in the closure of 22 shops across the country.
The Border region's stores in Dumfries, Workington and Carlisle are not included on the list set to shut.
The group has announced a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), which will see the affected shops continue trading until early 2020.
Further closures could still be announced following discussions with landlords. Meanwhile rent reductions will be sought on many of the remaining branches.
These are the 22 stores expected to close in 2020:
- Birmingham Fort
- Great Yarmouth
- Welwyn Garden City
