In , Green then went on to acquire the Arcadia Group of high street retailers, which includes Topshop , Burton , Evans , Dorothy Perkins and Wallis among others, to form Britain's second largest clothes retailer, after Marks and Spencer. He had the guts to do the deal, to make it work when nobody else thought he could. The girls' fashion retailer Tammy was the strongest brand in terms of sales and consumer recognition.
For this reason, and to help improve girls' perception of BHS as a whole, from early September stand-alone stores were closed and the brand integrated into BHS stores. These projects were designed purely to build upon the success of the homewares and lighting that BHS stores currently offered and to tap into new areas of business such as furniture, curtains, rugs, and wall art.

On 24 April , Dominic Chappell owner of Retail Acquisitions , announced that administrators would be appointed the next day. However the talks to buy the company have since failed resulting in the subsequent closure of BHS stores. Head office staff were made redundant straight away from the announcement that no buyer had been found, with stores expected to last up to 8 weeks selling the remaining stock.
The insolvent part of the company finally went into liquidation on 2 December , with the remainder of winding up proceedings commencing on that date. The Qatari Al Mana Group purchased the company's international franchise stores and online operations in June It launched a new website, bhs.
