Music Magpie is in “early-stage discussions” with potential buyers as it seeks a private sale. 

The secondhand tech retailer is in talks with both BT Group and pan-European private equity group Aurelius, which bought The Body Shop last week. 

Music Magpie said in a statement to the City that discussions with BT and Aurelius were ongoing and “remain at a very early stage”. It added that there was no certainty an offer would be made from either group.
