Entire contents of former Glasgow Debenhams store put up for auction

A beauty chair, a set of mannequins, and a Gucci display cabinet are just some of the items on sale after the entire contents of a former Debenhams store in Glasgow has been put up for auction.

The Argyle Street store was one of 15 Debenhams stores in Scotland that closed permanently in February 2021, after the retailer’s position became untenable during the pandemic.

Previously Lewis’s Department Store, the B-listed building is being redeveloped as part of the first phase of a wider £50m masterplan for the St Enoch Centre, which includes 1,700 new homes and a four-star hotel.

Now, 18 months after planners at Glasgow City Council granted permission for the former store to be transformed into offices with a rooftop restaurant, an auction of items from the store has been launched.

Other items include catering equipment, soft furnishings, shop fittings, and furniture.

The auction ends on Thursday at 1pm, with viewing dates prior to then by appointment only.
