Bargain Booze could be next in the line of off-licence chains to be snapped up by a private equity group, according to analysts. One expert said: “It is less likely to be acquired by the trade and more likely to be positioned to be sold to a private equity house.” This follows the purchase of Unwins by DM Private Equity last month. Bargain Booze was put up for sale by retail and wholesale business BWG Group shortly afterwards.
