This was the scene outside Debenhams in Hull as it reopened on Monday following the easing of some coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
The department chain - which fell into administration twice over the past year - is looking to flog off its stock after being liquidated early this year.
It is holding a final closing downing sale from April 12, with up to 70 per cent off fashion and home products, and up to 50 per cent off beauty and fragrance lines.
Stores are reopening as part of Debenhams’ final stock liquidation process and will continue to trade for a limited number of weeks until the stock in the stores is fully cleared.

Debenhams stores will start to close permanently from May 2, with the stock clearance completed and final stores expected to close by May 15.
All stores have been made Covid-secure, with appropriate hygiene and social distancing measures in place.
The busy scenes outside the store in Hull today come as shops, hairdressers, nail salons, and outdoor hospitality venues such as beer gardens reopened. Read more on that here.
