Woolworths Reportedly Puts Thomas Dux Stores Up For Sale

Woolworths Limited (ASX:WOW)reportedly plans to divest Thomas Dux stores. Industry sources said Woolworths had put Thomas Dux up for sale earlier in 2015, asking between $10 million and $20 million and was seeking expressions of interest from trade buyers and private equity investors. One source said that Woolworths Holdings Limited (JSE:WHL) had appointed an intermediary to express an interest in acquiring Thomas Dux, but when Woolworths Ltd realized that Woolworths Holdings was behind the approach it pulled the plug. Woolworths Holdings said there was no substance to suggestions it had approached Woolworths Australia.
