Lots of news to get to, so I'm doing a roundup post. All of these involve buyouts of retailers, either proposed or completed.
- Arby's Owner Courts Wendy's.
- Foot Locker is closing stores and is back on the trading block
- Fast Retailing has firmed up its previously announced bid for Barneys
- Lee Equity Partners is Buying Deb Shops for $395M
Update: Jones Apparel has said that the Fast Retailing offer is superior to its previous offer from Istithmar.
