NEW OWNER FOR FENN WRIGHT MANSON: Maxine Hargreaves-Adams, the daughter of John Hargreaves, the founder of retailer Matalan, has acquired the U.K. women’s wear label Fenn Wright Manson. Hargreaves-Adams has acquired the label’s online and wholesale business along with eight of its original 17 stand-alone stores and the label’s concessions within U.K. retailer John Lewis and Irish retailer Brown Thomas. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Fenn Wright Manson entered into administration, the British equivalent of Chapter 11, earlier this month, as a result of cash-flow problems.
