top 10 department stores in London

The Debenham was formed in 1778 by Messrs Flint and Clark who began trading at 44 Wigmore Street in London as a drapers' store under the name Flint & Clark. In 1813 William Debenham was made a partner so the name was changed to Clark and Debenham. In 1818 the Company opened a second store in Cheltenham and in 1851 Clement Freebody became a partner so the name was changed again, this time to Debenham & Freebody.The business was incorporated as Debenhams Limited in 1905.

Debenhams stocks affordable ranges from a number of talented British designers such as Jasper Conran, Ben de Lisi, Frost French, and Julien Macdonald. Debenhams has a large shoe department, an extensive lingerie section, and a cosmetics hall with all the top beauty brands represented.

Debenhams has become much trendier over the last few years and may have alienated its old faithful customers. I find the 'pumping music' a bit much but they have attracted the 'trendy young thing' crowd so I'm sure they're doing alright.

Hugely wide-reaching in its number of locations, this department store can be found throughout the UK and even in the Middle East and Indonesia. A great selection of merchandise is standard, and you can be assured of consistency no matter which location you frequent. Along with apparel for the entire family, Debenhams offers furniture, housewares and electronic goods. An in-house floral department is available as well.
