Mervyns Back from the Dead?

When the East Bay department store chain Mervyns closed its stores and liquidated its assets a few months back, everyone assumed that the chain was gone for good. Now, reports the San Francisco Business Times, the store may be making a comeback. John Morris, the son of Mervyns founder Mervin Morris, has bought the name and the Internet properties from the dead company, and reportedly claims that Mervyns still has a core of loyal customers that would come back to the stores. We’ll see what happens.
