Debenhams has announced it will shut its remaining stores by 15 May, closing the door on more than 200 years of trade on UK high streets.
The move means 49 more shops will go, on top of the 52 due to close on 8 May.
The Debenhams brand will continue online after being bought by retailer Boohoo for £55m in January.
The company traces its roots back to 1778 when William Clark opened a shop in London's West End, selling fabrics, bonnets and parasols.
In 1813, William Debenham invested in the firm and it was renamed Clark & Debenham.
