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.
