Blue Inc to take on D2 shops

Blue Inc, the fashion chain backed by Sir Stuart Rose and the Reuben brothers, is set to buy up most of the remaining shops from collapsed retailer D2 Jeans. The retailer will take on around 20 of D2’s outlets from administrator BDO, according to reports. D2, which was formerly owned by billionaire Sir Tom Hunter, was one of several high street names to collapse into administration over the Christmas period.
