Shoon is up for sale again. The owners of the English footwear chain have hired advisers at BDO to search for a buyer, less than a year after it was sold to the former bosses of Jones Bootmaker, industry veterans Ken Bartle and Peter Phillips. According to reports in The Telegraph, the move is caused by Phillips' ill health. Shoon fell into administration in 2012 after launching an ambitious expansion plan. The chain runs 10 stores across England, and also sells online.
