All Virgin Holidays concessions in Debenhams 'trading normally'

Virgin Holidays has 36 concession stores among the 166 Debenhams branches.


As part of a "pre-pack" administration process, 50 of the department store’s branches will be closed in the future, although details of where these will be have not been disclosed.


A Virgin Holidays spokesperson said: “Our 36 concession stores are currently trading as usual.


"We’d like to reassure customers who have booked through a Debenhams store that it will have absolutely no impact on their holiday, and that future customers can continue to book with confidence.”


Debt-laden Debenhams is now in the hands of banks, including Barclays and Bank of Ireland, plus a bunch of US investment firms.


They will slim down the brand and sell it as a going concern.
