An affiliate of private investment firm Sun Capital Partners Inc has bought value-priced apparel and home fashions retailer Gordmans Inc for an undisclosed sum.

Omaha-based Gordmans operates 65 stores in 16 Midwestern states, carrying an assortment of name brand apparel, accessories, footwear, gifts, fragrances, jewellery, and home fashions at up to 60% off department store and specialty retailer prices.

The two companies say the deal will enable Gordmans "to fully realise its growth potential and expand its existing footprint."
