Mervyn’s

Started by Mervin G. Morris in 1949 in San Lorenzo, California, the company grew to almost 200 stores, mostly in the West. The mid-price chain boomed in the ’70s, but when it began expanding outside of California, it stumbled. Stores began closing across the country in the early 2000s. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2008, shuttering all of its stores.
