Debenhams has been a staple of our highs streets for over 200 years.
Selling everything from clothes and shoes to gifts and household goods; proving popular with shoppers at their two locations in Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds.
Indeed the department store has proven so popular over the years that pictures from across the years have captured eager shoppers queuing up to enter the store’s annual sales come Boxing Day.
With some of the more extreme fans even camping out in the early hours to be the first in the queue when the stores opened.
But shopping isn’t all about bargains, for many it’s about the experience and it was quite an experience for youngsters who entered the store in Ipswich in 1983 to find none other than Darth Vader himself had arrived.
If the store’s collapse this week proves to be permanent it will be a sad loss but fortunately its memories for Suffolk will remain.
