The deal means 1,600 jobs have been transferred to the buyer, leaving 400 positions at risk.
Remaining stores not included in the sale will remain open for business while administrators look for buyers.
Dreams has secured investment and will continue to operate as a going concern.
Customer orders will be honoured where part payment deposits have been made for goods and customer warranties.
