Made.com has been picked up by Next for just £3.4 million after the online furniture retailer, whose value soared to £775 million during the pandemic, fell into administration with the loss of 320 jobs.
 
Made.com appointed administrators from PwC who immediately completed the sale of the brand to the high street clothing chain, saying that it “represents the best option available to generate returns for creditors as a whole, under severely limited timescales”.
 
Next, which has a homewares business of its own, confirmed that while the deal included the internet domain names and intellectual property it did not include the inventory or staff.
