The first Debenhams franchise store was opened in Bahrain in 1997.
There are now 71 stores in 24 countries, with new stores opening in the UAE – our largest franchise store to date in Yas Island Mall – Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, Russia and Romania.
Our franchise representation is still principally focused in the Middle East, South East Asia and Eastern Europe, with good opportunities in existing regions as well as in untapped markets.
Franchise stores are currently located in:
United Arab Emirates
Under the arrangements with our franchise partners, Debenhams supplies products to the franchise stores and is paid the cost of the products plus a margin. We also receive a royalty fee on sales of products from third party suppliers. We work together with our partners to agree on product ranges to meet local selling conditions, which may include different customer shopping habits and seasonal trends.
