House Of Fraser Closing Date Revealed: What You Can Still Get in The Sale

House of Fraser in Highcross is holding a huge closing sale - and there's just two days left.
 
With up to 90% of all stock, customers have been scrambling for bargains in the Highcross shop as it prepares to cease trading on Saturday 15 July.
 
So what can you still get in the sales - and is it worth it?
 
We visited the store yesterday afternoon and found out that there isn't really that much left.
 
Whole sections of the shop have been blocked off, with empty shelving stacked around the rest of it.
 
But if you love a good bargain, there are a few gems to be discovered.
 
As you enter on the first floor, there's some quality jewellery available at 50% off, from brands like Michael Kors and Ted Baker.
 
Men's watches from brands including Hugo Boss are also available with a huge cut off the original price.
 
Round the corner, the shoe section has lots of footwear left in all sizes, including women's sports brand Sketchers at up to 50% off.
 
 
There is also quite a bit of luggage left, with an extra 40% knocked off the last listed price - handy if you've left your holiday shopping til last minute.
 
Much of the rest of this floor is taken up by odd bits of slightly damaged homeware - which is not worth sifting through.
 
But one standout was some smart Villeroy & Boch glassware at 60% off, with some significantly reduced gift sets also available.
 
We also found some interesting "bauballs" priced at 50p - maybe one to put away for a Christmas prank?
 
 
The furniture section looked like it had been mostly snapped up already, with bargain sofas stacked up against the wall with "sold" signs attached.
 
These trendy swivel chairs were one of the only things left - massively reduced from £1299 to £399 each.
 
 
Moving through to menswear, highlights included some Tommy Hilfiger t-shirts from £15.
 
Whole suit sets were also available for just £99 from a number of different menswear brands.
 
So what about the rest? Womenswear is kept downstairs, but there isn't much left.
 
Rails of tops are offered at £10 and under, but these prom-style dresses for the same price were probably the best offer we saw.
 
 
There are also some bargains to be uncovered in the kids section, with an extra 50% off the last marked price.
 
That would mean this cute boys dinosaur print shirt costs just under £6.
 
So there are still some bargains to be found in House of Fraser - if you can brave the crowds.
 
After the store closes, the unit will be replaced by new businesses including a flagship ZARA store and leisure company Treetop Adventure Golf.
 
Development of the new units is expected to be completed in 2018.
