A number of retailers have expressed interest in shoe business Barratts and Priceless’ stores after it collapsed into administration last week.

It is thought Michael Ziff, former owner of the retailer, is among those interested.

Deloitte was appointed administrator to the retailer, which has 191 stores, 371 concessions and employs around 3,840 staff, last Thursday.

Property agent CBRE has been hired by Deloitte as advisors.

A CBRE spokeswoman said: “CBRE has already been approached by a number of retailers looking to secure potential package deals.”
