Lubbock Mervyn's Store to Close

Mervyn's announced this week its store in Lubbock will be among the 26 that will close by early November.

"Stores in Midland and Odessa as well as three in San Antonio are also set to close leaving just five Mervyn's in Texas, most of which are in the far southern region near McAllen and Brownsville," said Roy Berces, with Mervyns' Corporate office.

The stores being closed were ranked as "under-performing" and are meant to help the retail chain cut its expenses and reverse current losses, according to a Mervyn's press release.

"We thank our associates and our many loyal customers, especially those in these affected locations, who have supported us for many years. We are committed to treating those associates affected by today's announcement fairly, and will seek to provide them with appropriate assistance to make this transition as smooth as possible," said John Goodman, chief executive officer of Mervyn's in a statement.
