Heritage name looks to ‘new department store’

UK giant department store giant Debenhams has launched its first Aussie store at Melbourne’s St Collins Lane retail precinct. The store’s small-format layout – across two storeys and 3600sqm – was a new concept specifically developed for the Australian market and draws on over two centuries of retailing experience, offering in-store services such as a style suite, beauty rooms, mobile POS and a cafe. It joins a portfolio of 243 Debenhams stores across 28 countries worldwide. Graham Dean,
