Linens 'n Things, the national chain store that carried kitchen, bedroom and bath items, closed its store on the northeast side of the mall at the end of 2008.

Although there has been talk about resurrecting the brand as an online entity, you'll have to chalk this one up to wishful thinking. The folks who update those mall maps are apparently a step or two behind.

We asked Rogue Valley Mall General Manager Jeff Barber whether there was the possibility of Linens 'n Things returning.

"I don't believe so," he said. "If they are on our store map, it's just an oversight."

Barber said the space formerly occupied by Linens 'n Things should be leased soon to a new national tenant.
