The deal includes the sales of the retailer’s ecommerce business and intellectual property, which includes the brands Barratts and Priceless shoes.

Restructuring firm Duff & Phelps were appointed administrators and closed the retailer’s 42 remaining stores between Christmas and New Year, after having shuttered 75 stores and 23 concessions since November.

On 23rd December, Yorkshire-based Pavers shoes purchased 14 Barratts stores in last-minute rescue bid and will continue to trade under the Barratts fascia for the next six months.
