British department store chain Debenhams is to pull out of Ireland and close all 11 of its stores there, RTE reported on Thursday.
A liquidator is to be appointed to the Irish operations in the coming days, RTE reported. A spokesman for Debenhams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Debenhams on Monday said it was preparing to enter administration in the United Kingdom for the second time in a year to protect the business from legal action from creditors during the coronavirus emergency. (Reuters)
