Very intriguing!  I am curious though, he is a Connecticut guy.
Why is his interest in bringing Caldor back but not Ames?   Huh?

Caldor was more upscale (as in MUCH more upscale) even though they went out of business three years earlier.

i think its because Caldor was more dominated in the NY metro area and had good locations. Also they were able to stood out more then ames or bradlees did so i guess thats why.

I am familiar with the latter.  Service Merchandise was ideally positioned to become the dominant retailer on the internet in the early 1990's.  Our IT systems were very sophisticated for their time.  All of the ship-from-store infrastructure was in place.  All we had to do was hook it up to a storefront website and we'd be good to go.

Some employees brought this idea to our CEO, Raymond Zimmerman, who rejected it because he personally did not believe in it. He apparently thought that the internet was just some sort of passing fad or something.  He was finally dragged kicking and screaming into approving a pilot project which failed (no doubt because he wanted it that way so he'd be proven right).

Years later after the company had gone under he bought the domain "servicemerchandise.com" from the
bankruptcy court and established his own online-only jewelry store based in Florida. 

The company could have become Amazon by 1997 if he had not been such a stubborn, arrogant fellow.

It would be cool for nostalgia-sake, but it really isn't the same if it is just going to be an online 'junk' store with nothing to distinguish itself.
A few years ago I remember Hechinger.com and Builderssquare.com popped up as online hardware stores but it looks like they are gone now. (Although 'Montgomery Ward' has reappeared as an online store several years ago, and is still around, so I guess they are doing okay.).

This from Wikipedia!
Caldor in 2014[edit]
In May 2014, South Windsor, Connecticut resident, Justin Calabrese took ownership of the brand. The University of Hartford graduate purchased Caldor.com, the businesses intellectual property (IP), and trademarks. Justin will be modernizing the Caldor brand in order to replicate it successful operations back in 1999. The website is still under construction[14] and should open in late 2015 according to a spokesperson for the Caldor company.

It is unclear how much Justin Calabrese paid for the companies intellectual property. Calabrese was born on April 11, 1990, and resides in South Windsor, Connecticut.

Looks like this idea was just someone's silly dream. The Facebook page is down and Caldor.com appears to be for sale.

*bump*
Caldor.com brings you to "Caldore", either this guy messed up or some other company thought they could lure. *shrugs* Its going to be hard bringing a crowd. This guy has to open up a test one in a city..and see the reactions. They should throw " Grandparents and Grandkids outings". Advertising in papers, giving out flyers..

Something about this seems similar to Ames of Sedan, Kansas.
