      Pros

      Good work environment- People were lovely, management approachable. Good hours, flexibility for appointments etc. Staff discounts also available which was great

      Cons

      Not many cons besides the fact that Debenhams closed down. Very disappointed by how staff were treated. Livelihoods of many were not considered which was awful. Besides that, No chairs available to staff who are manning tills all day
