LONDON — British tycoon Philip Green is set to become the U.K.’s largest clothing retailer.
Green, who already owns the department store chain British Home Stores Ltd. and the Mark One discount clothing shops, has made a proposed $1.2 billion bid for the shares of Arcadia Group PLC he does not already own. Arcadia is the U.K.’s second-biggest clothing retailer after Marks & Spencer PLC. Green’s bid has been approved by Arcadia’s board.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
