Debenhams is to reopen 97 of its high street stores on Monday, including the one in Bristol, for a final closing-down sale to clear stock.
The stores will finally all close up in May.
The Bristol store on Horsefair was constructed in 1957, but was originally home to Jones and Co and traded under that name until 1972 when Debenham's took over.
Debenham's itself started as a store in London in 1778 and took on the name in 1813 when William Debenham invested in the company, which became Clark & Debenham.
The department store, collapsed last year, and said it would be offering up to 70% off fashion and homewares and up to 50% off beauty and fragrance in its final closing down sale.
