'Grey's Anatomy' Star Patrick Dempsey Wins Bid for Tully's Chain

The actor known as TV's "McDreamy" won an auction to purchase the entire coffee chain for $9.2 million.

"Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey has apparently placed the winning bid in Thursday's bankruptcy auction to buy the Tully's Coffee chain.

Dempsey, known as "McDreamy" on the hospital-themed television drama, is visiting Eastside locations at Clyde Hill and downtown Bellevue this morning, according to his Twitter feed.

The Associated Press reports Dempsey's placed the bid through his company Global Baristas LLC and plans to keep the Tully's brand. But Starbucks, which also participated in the auction, says it's in a "back up" position to buy about half of Tully's remaining 47 stores.

A final decision on the winning bid will be determined in court on Jan. 11.
