High Street retailer Debenhams is to axe 320 store management jobs as part of a major cost-cutting exercise.
The jobs, which represent a quarter of store management roles, will be shed across its 176 stores.
Debenhams issued a profit warning last month after disappointing Christmas trading.
“We are currently consulting with individuals affected and will seek redeployment opportunities where possible,” the company said in a statement. “We envisage our new structure being fully in place by the end of March.”
