Hawkins Bazaar Sold to Management

The remaining 8 shops of Hawkins Bazaar have been bought by management a month after the business went into administration.  The chain had 65 stores nationwide but Zolfo Cooper closed 57 of them and made 300 people redundant.

The management have been backed by private equity group Primary Capital and they have taken over the website and trading name of the company.

A few years back Hawkins Bazaar had a successful online business but they expanded into the High Street in search of more customers.  Maybe the new management will look to reinvigorate the online brand?
