Acquisition-hungry JD Sports Fashion has now moved into beauty. The UK-based sportswear giant has bought a stake in online hair & beauty brand Hairburst, which sells vitamins, shampoos and styling products.
JD Sports is possibly on the acquisition trail again with a report claiming that it's in talks to buy online fashion retailer Missguided. Neither company has commented however, so it remains unconfirmed for now.
JD Sports has received a blow with the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) again provisionally blocking its acquisition of the Footasylum chain after a review of its decision to block the deal.
Sports Direct, JD Sports Fashion and Debenhams are among nine UK brands named as the worst internet retailers for customer service, according to rankings published by Which? Top of the ratings pile? Marks & Spencer.
