Debenhams Breaks Ranks And Launches New Season With Designer Discounts

Department store retailer Debenhams turned the convention of the sale on its head by reducing prices at the start of the Autumn/Winter season, rather than the end of it.

The innovative move sees tens of thousands of new season lines reduced by up to 25 per cent, across new to store stock including womenswear, accessories, menswear, childrenswear, home, cosmetics, lingerie, sports and leisure and gifting.

The move will no doubt be popular with consumers, with many remaining cautious due to the continuing, challenging economic climate following spending cuts and the ‘will we, wont we’ double-dip recession debate.

So extensive are the ‘introductory offers’ that even top designers – Betty Jackson, Julien Macdonald, Jasper Conran, John Rocha, Matthew Williamson and Henry Holland – will see their exclusive to Debenhams, diffusion collection prices fall just before their mainline offerings grace the catwalks at London Fashion Week.

“Retailers discount at a time that suits them to help sell tired end of season stock,” said Michael Sharp, Debenhams deputy chief executive.

“This move turns that idea totally on its head. It offers customers discounts across the store on the very latest products, meaning they can pick up this season’s must-haves at sale prices,” added Michael Sharp.

“I have said it before and I will say it again. We are more determined than ever to deliver designer clothes at prices everyone can afford. Nowhere else on the high street can you see so many fantastic offers all under one roof.”

eBrookes Leads the Way for Work Wear Clothing

Ian Brookes, founder of workwear specialist site eBrookes.co.uk, has highlighted the emphasis which should be placed on appropriate work wear clothing especially with autumn and winter approaching.

eBrookes.co.uk has recently celebrated 7 years in trading, during which time they have suited and attired workforces around the country.

Brookes emphasises that with work wear, there should always be a focus on safety; “Ensuring your workforce are properly attired when working, specifically outside, may seem straightforward enough, but it cannot be underestimated just how important it is.

“With Autumn on the way and daylight time getting shorter, large amounts of work will soon be done without sunlight, which poses safety risks.”

As well as offering established work wear brands such as CAT, Carhartt and Dickies, eBrookes.co.uk also offers a tailored embroidery and clothes personalisation service. Suitable for catering and hospitality, clubs and organisations and even schools and education, you can add your branded logo for as little as £1.10.

“The personalisation service is a great way to give a team a smart and professional look in addition to helping establish a company identity.”

eBrookes prides itself on offering the wide range of clothes on offer at trade prices. Regatta fleeces, Fruit of the Loom Polo shirts as well as steel toe boots and hi-visibility gear, which Brookes is anticipating being popular again this coming season;

“There is no better way to stay safe and seen than when wearing hi-visibility clothes. Our hi vis jackets and trousers combine comfort with peace of mind whilst working in poor lighting conditions.
