Norwood, Mass. – Furniture, bedding and home furnishings store Domain Home has been sold, with New Jersey-based private investment and management advisory firm Synergy Enterprises acquiring a majority stake from Aga Foodservice Group. A purchase price was not disclosed.
U.K.-based Aga, a producer of high-end stoves and refrigerators, will retain a 15% stake in the retailer. Domain retains the right to sell and market Aga kitchen and cooking products, the company said.
