The article reports that Gottschalks Inc. is keeping a close eye on the Federated/May mega-merger and may be interested in acquiring the vacated locations. Gottschalks has felt positive effects from the vendor community regarding the merger. Gottschalks has been treated to the best vendor support it has seen in years. The company has yet to feel it is being stuck with higher prices than Federated/May can demand from vendors. While the company considers moving into some Federated/ May locations, Gottschalks recently had to deal with Kohl's entering a number of its markets.
