Kohl’s Corporation and Forever 21 were successful in their joint bid to buy the leaseholds of 46 Meryvns sites, pending approval by the court overseeing Mervyns’ bankruptcy. Kohl’s will get 31 of the locations and Forever 21 the other 15 through the auction. The total cost was about $6.25 million. Kohl’s plans to open about 50 new stores in the 2009 fiscal year, including most of the 31 former Mervyns.
