Mervyn's across the country opened early today for a good cause.
The new school year is approaching, and Mervyn's department stores are making sure that kids go back to school in style. Mesa County Partners teamed up with Mervyn's to provide 48 underprivileged youth with new clothes, shoes, and backpacks.
Mervyn's donates $ 3,500 and Partners raised an additional $ 13,000 for the children. Each "Child Spree" shopper received $ 100 and early access to Mervyn's to shop til they drop.
