AYR’S Debenhams store could be at risk of closing down after the company announced that up to 50 shops will close across the UK.

The national chain reported a massive profit loss this year and have revealed almost a third of its high street shops will close their doors.

While the exact locations of the stores have not been confirmed, a time of uncertainty looms for the workers on Kyle Street.

A spokeswoman for Debenhams advised there are no timescales for closures yet. She said: “The closures are part of a three to five year plan so announcements will be made in line with that.”
