Debenhams’ customers fully embraced the carnival spirit during the weekend of 26-28 November to take advantage of the special offers and in-store attractions at the Debenhams Festival Weekend. The three-day shopping spectacular saw an array of one-day-only deals, including 50 percent off all footwear, bed linen and kidswear.
The festival finale took place on 29 November, where one lucky Debenhams customer – drawn from The Avenues, Kuwait – was picked out of thousands of entries in a prize draw to win Alshaya gift cards loaded with KD10,000.
Keeping true to its promise of providing a fun-filled weekend for the entire family, children excitedly queued to have their face painted, while being entertained by clowns, toy soldiers and even a royal guard – reflecting the very British roots of the Debenhams brand.
The ‘golden hanger’ promotion proved particularly popular with adults, with customers searching for hidden golden hangers throughout the store and instantly claiming their prize – which ranged from shopping vouchers to meals for two at Alshaya restaurants.
Generous discounts, special offers, live radio broadcasts, entertainers and a selection of refreshments provided by Pinkberry and Starbucks, ensured Debenhams Festival Weekend had all the essential ingredients for the perfect party atmosphere.
Other brands who participated with offers throughout the weekend included Milano, Evans, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, Miss Selfridge, Coast, Oasis, Claire’s Warehouse, Justice, Burton, Footlocker, Icing, Solaris,Victoria’s Secret, Phase Eight, Jacques Vert, Jon Richard, Dune, Guess Topshop and Topman, plus many more.
