It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. After filing for bankruptcy protection in January, Bernie’s, the TV and appliance store, had planned to reopen its Manchester store on June 1.
The paper reports that Rosenberg bought the name Bernie's out of bankruptcy court in Hartford for $150,000 from Citizens Bank and he was expected to pull nearly two dozen former workers to run the new store.
This reopening had been regarded as the second post-bankruptcy rebirth of the Bernie's chain. The first time happened in the 1980s.
