Two tours of bankruptcy weren’t sufficient to bring down the curtain on Goody’s.
The Knoxville, Tenn.-based family apparel store has found new life after Stage Stores Inc. bought the brand and trademarks in July 2010 for $300,000. Goody’s had begun liquidation proceedings in January 2009 but instead has become a standout performer for Stage Stores, which has rebranded 174 of its stores as Goody’s and opened another 69 units under that name.
