Online jewelry retailer Blue Nile Inc. agreed to be acquired for $500 million in cash by a group led by venture capital firm Bain Capital and hedge fund Bow Street LLC in November 2016. The investor group planned to pay $40.75 per share to acquire Blue Nile. The deal, which closed in early 2017, made the publicly traded company private. Blue Nile, which started out as an online-only retailer, has been making an omnichannel push over the past year and a half. The retailer opened its first physical showroom at the Roosevelt Field mall on Long Island in June 2015. Since then, Blue Nile has added three more showrooms.
