In the dying days of Debenhams, a fair number of customers searched the rails for last-minute bargains.
The store in Chatham will officially close for the last time at 3pm today, leaving the prime location in the High Street empty ahead of an uncertain future.

It was all hands on deck on yesterday in the sparse department store with staff busy moving fixtures and fittings and taking stock of what was left.
Those entering the store were greeted with huge banners proclaiming massive discounts and a countdown saying, "Last two days".
Punters queued at the tills armed with bargains, some being able to score as much as 80% off some clothes, whilst young men moved racks, tables, display cabinets and office draws into one large area where they could be purchased for as little as £5.
Some designer brand clothing such as Star by Julien Macdonald were being sold off for half price.

The top floor restaurant was closed off to the public leaving what was left of the womenswear, kidwear, menswear and homeware sections up for grabs.
Beauty counters lay mostly empty with staff picking the last of the designer lipsticks off the shelves.
The vast amount of space laying empty makes one wonder what the store could be used for.
It has not yet been announced what the plans for the shop will be.
Cinema plans have emerged for the Folkestone store, and rumours of a Primark setting up in the Ashford site have also circulated.
They are among 22 stores to close across the country.
