Well, that didn’t take long.

Just days after former retail giant Herberger’s shuttered all of its locations for good nationwide, a greeting on the store’s website now says it is miraculously coming back.

“We’ve got great news,” the website's homepage reads. “Herberger’s is coming back!”

The retailer didn’t provide any further details regarding the store’s comeback other than simply saying, “stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks!”

On April 18, The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., the company which owns Herberger’s and Younkers, announced it was filing for bankruptcy. The company had 21 Herberger’s and two Younkers stores in Minnesota. It also had four Herberger’s stores in North Dakota.

Most Herberger’s and Younkers locations nationwide wrapped up their going out of business sales this week and as of Friday, Aug. 31, all locations are now closed.
