Debenhams has a great product selection. While it is an online department store, it can be lacking in selection of larger items like household furniture and electricals. However, it has a fantastic selection of beauty and fashion products and is the perfect place to shop for an outfit for any special occasion.
Debenhams offers UK standard delivery and UK next day delivery as well as standard delivery to Northern Ireland.

Debenhams have a great FAQ section to answer most questions so it shouldn't be often that you need to get in contact with them directly. The response times tend to be relatively fast and we like that you can contact them through social media and even Apple message. However, there is a distinct lack of contact telephone number which can be stressful if you feel your enquiry is time sensitive.
Over the years Debenhams has produced a number of pledges to reduce environmental impact. It is now owned by the Boohoo group. Boohoo group have a sustainability plan and launched UP.FRONT, fashion ready for the future. Debenhams do stock popular fashion brands rather than it's own brands, so has limited control on the environmental impact of these products. While unavoidable, it also isn't ideal that orders can be subject to multiple deliveries from multiple warehouses.
Debenhams was a large department store chain with 178 locations and one of the most well known high street retailers. It now stands as an online shopping department store and no longer has its original high street presence. Dating all the way back to 1778, Debenhams was formed by William Clark who originally began trading in London as a drapers store. William Debenham became a partner in 1813 changing the corporate name to Clark & Debenham. The business was eventually incorporated as Debenhams Limited in 1905. Over the years Debenhams has had many offers and interest to purchase the business by United Drapery Stores, Sears plc and even Tesco. The largest British Debenhams store was opened at the Bull Ring shopping centre in Birmingham in 2003.
In 2018 the company announced the largest loss in its history, a pre-tax loss of £491 million. After this, many stores were closed and Debenhams was to face financial difficulty. In January 2021 it was announced that Boohoo had bought the Debenhams brands and website. None of the original 118 stores were retained which resulted in serious job losses. The Debenhams website was relaunched in April 2021.
