DEBENHAMS Basingstoke is extending its free parking campaign until Christmas Eve.

The campaign, which launched in early December, sees the retailer pick up the cost of two hours parking when shoppers spend £50 instore on items from its fashion, home, beauty and gifting ranges.

Shoppers just need to produce a photo or ticket at the till point as proof of parking for the cost of two hours parking to be deducted from goods purchased.

Manager of Debenhams in Festival Place, Erica Davies, said: “Parking woes have been a pressure point in the region for a long time, so we are delighted that we are able to do our bit to encourage shoppers to hit the high street right up until Christmas Eve. We hope that shoppers will not only ‘do a bit of Debenhams’ but also meet with family and friends and rediscover everything that is going on along their high street.”
