  • Another hammer blow to Britain's retail sector landed on Tuesday as Debenhams announced it will start a liquidation process.

  • It will see stores close and the potential loss of 12,000 jobs.

  • The retailers administrators f R P Advisory said the decision to wind down Debenhams came after it failed to find a buyer.

  • It had been in talks to fellow UK firm JD Sports Fashion for a rescue takeover, but J D confirmed Tuesday that potential deal had fallen apart.

  • Fr P said they had regretfully concluded they needed to begin a wind down due to the current trading environment on likely prolonged effects of the global health crisis.

  • They believe those issues make a restructure of Debenhams highly uncertain.

  • F R P said the company will still trade through its 124 UK stores on online to clear its current and contracted stocks.

  • The collapse of Debenhams is the second major retail failure in the UK this week.
