An entire generation of teens may never enter a Delia’s—but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to enjoy the beloved 90s fashion staple. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy late last year, the brand (also known as dELiA*s) has been acquired by Steve Russo of Fab/Starpoint.

The brand will return online only, which was announced via Instagram:

News flash! @Delias will be coming back-to-school with you! Best part? Online only = ALWAYS OPEN! 😍 #DeliasForever #BackToSchool

When Delia’s originally closed, many took the news pretty hard, including actress Anna Kendrick:

Delia*s is no longer?? Never have I spent more time pouring over catalogues full of ringer tees and wedge flip flops I couldn’t afford. #RIP
