BBC reported a spokesperson who said: “Sadly we have been unable to agree terms with the landlord. As a result these stores will not be re-opening in line with the rest of the chain next week.
“We greatly regret the effect on our colleagues, who have served our customers with commitment and dedication.”
An Intu spokesperson said: “We are still in discussion with Debenhams and their administrators on the future of their stores across our portfolio, which have to date been positive.
“This is a lengthy process and we are in the final stages of agreeing terms. Naturally with a portfolio of large-format stores such as these, they offer great opportunities for alternative uses and we remain optimistic about the future of this valuable retail space.”
