Consensus Advisors has been hired to sell the intellectual property assets of Bakers Footwear Group.
Bakers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection in October in St. Louis. The company is currently liquidating its remaining 54 stores. Once a 600-plus chain in its heyday in the late 1980s, Baker was one of several specialty operations owned and operated by Edison Brothers Stores Inc., also now defunct. While footwear is its primary category, the retail chain also sells some accessories.
