Debenhams unveils multi-million pound expansion in Blackburn
RETAIL giant Debenhams has unveiled a multi-million pound refurbishment and extension of its store in Blackburn.
An additional 4,700sq ft of shopping space has been created with an expansion into three adjacent units in The Mall Blackburn.
The new cosmetics and jewellery hall are part of a range of improvements Debenhams is undertaking this year, which will include an enlarged store entrance, new flooring, lighting and internal finishes.
Bucks fizz and chocolates were handed out to customers yesterday who got the first glimpses of the revamped Dior, Estee Lauder and Clinique counters.
As well as relocating and refurbishing the existing beauty houses, Debenhams has also introduced three new beauty brands – Urban Decay, Benefit and Bare Minerals.
Store manager Matt Cooper said he was delighted to reveal the new-look store to customers.
He said: “People are loving the new cosmetics hall. Many customers have already told me there’s no need to drift out to Preston to get their makeup any more.
“With the beauty hall relaunch today there’s a real buzz among colleagues.
“We’re confident customers are going to love the new and improved shopping experience.
“The investment demonstrates a real commitment to Blackburn and hopefully shows our customers we’re as loyal to them as they are to us.”
