The UK’s JD Sports is making power moves. The massive sportswear retailer has completed a deal to purchase Finish Line in a bid to take its business stateside. When the $558 million USD deal is completed, JD Sports will operate over 1,500 shops worldwide — including outposts in Macy’s — which grants the company a commanding lead over all rivals except for Foot Locker, which boasts 1,800 stores around the world.
