Debenhams want an unsung hero to launch shop.

Debenhams in Rugby has launched the search to find a local hero as part of a competition which will see the winner officially open the new department store.

Opening at 10am on Thursday September 3, the winner will be given a special makeover before taking centre stage to cut the ribbon, declaring the store open.

Whether it’s someone who goes that extra mile in the area or a member of the local community known and loved by many, the winner is guaranteed to have an unforgettable morning to celebrate the latest opening at the new Elliott’s Field Retail Park.

Store manager, Sam Zeen, will be judging the competition and is urging people from the local community to nominate worthy winners by sending 150 words on why they should win. All nominations should be emailed to debenhamshero@havasww.combefore by Wednesday 26 August.

Debenhams Rugby is also on the lookout for a local rugby team to come forward and help open the new store alongside the chosen hero.
