Mervyn's Department Store May Make Comeback

Mervyn's department store chain could be making a comeback.

Mervyn's department store shuttered its doors last year after it filed for bankruptcy but the brand may make a return.

John Morris, son of the department store chain's founder, Mervin Morris, along with his two brothers, agreed to buy the Mervyn's name and its Internet-related intellectual properties, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The goal of the three brothers is to put the name back on consumer's radar and they believe that there are a strong, loyal base of customers on the West Coast. That's not to say they wouldn't target customers around the country. The retailer operated 189 stores in 10 states in 2006.

As of today, the Mervyns.com site still mentions the company going out of business. That could change soon if the family decides to relaunch it as an online store.
