Budget retailer Poundworld goes up for sale


The retailer of make-up brand Miss Beauty London is seeking a new owner by the end of the month



Budget retailer Poundworld, owned by US private equity firm TPG Capital, has been put up for sale.

According to Sky News, TPG has instructed Deloitte to find a new owner for the discount chain by the end of the month.

Last month Poundworld’s future was under scrutiny after reports that it was preparing to seek approval to close up to 100 stores.

However, a source close to TPG said that the company has decided to sell instead, after receiving interest from potential buyers.
