LONDON — With deep pockets and ambitious plans to expand internationally, Galeries Lafayette has entered into talks to acquire Britain’s House of Fraser chain of department stores.
Industry sources said this week that House of Fraser has been seeking to rationalize its shareholder base and seek new, strategic investors that will add value to the business and help it evolve as a multichannel retailer.
