2450 job lost at Dorothy Perkins
About 8 Months, 1 Week, 6 Days, 19 Hours, 22 Minutes ago.
Online fashion retailer Boohoo has bought the Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and Burton brands from failed retail group Arcadia for £25.2m
The deal includes the brands and online businesses, but not the 214 shops nor 2,450 workers employed in them.
It completes the sell-off of Sir Philip Green's once mighty Arcadia group which fell into administration last year.
Last week, rival Asos bought Arcadia's other leading brands, Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge and HIIT.
The Arcadia businesses employed 13,000, a fraction of which will carry on into employment with the new owners.
