Jos. A. Bank Clothiers is in talks to buy retailer Eddie Bauer from private equity owner Golden Gate Capital, according to a source familiar with the talks.
The source, who asked not to be named, did not reveal details about the talks.
Jos. A. Bank has been involved in a prolonged and nasty struggle with rival retailer Men's Wearhouse with each making overtures to buy the other. The Wall Street Journal reported the talks between Jos. A. Bank and Eddie Bauer earlier on Saturday.
