Nottingham Buildings




Detail above the main entrance.


Unlike other major names who have unfortunately deserted the city centre, Debenhams still occupies this impressive building overlooking The Old Market Square.

The date above the front  entrance says - 'Established 1846'.
This was the date The Dickinson Brothers first opened a drapery store on the site. 
In 1878 the store was purchased by Griffin & Spalding who in 1924 re-built the facade that we see today in Portland stone. The store was purchased by Debenhams in 1944 but continued to trade under the Griffin & Spalding name right up until 1978
