LONDON — Nanjing Cenbest, also known as Nanjing Xinjiekou Department Store Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Chinese conglomerate Sanpower Group, said Tuesday that it has completed its acquisition of 89 percent of the U.K. department store group House of Fraser, at an enterprise value of around 480 million pounds, or $797 million, comprising the firm's equity and debt.
