  • Bon-Ton announced that it is closing a store in Carlisle

The store closings include the Bon-Ton store in the Salmon Mall in Watertown, according to The Bon-Ton.

At Aviation Mall, Bon-Ton will begin a store closing sale on Thursday, company officials said. Company officials say associates at these locations will be offered the opportunity to interview for available positions at other store locations.

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. announced today it's shuttering 42 stores - which also operate as Bergner's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's, Younkers and Boston Store - in 13 states as part of reorganization announced in November.

Bon-Ton said it has partnered with third-party liquidator Hilco Merchant Resources, to help manage the closing stores' sales. She did not immediately provide a store-by-store breakdown.

Younkers, one of the Fox River Mall's anchor department stores, will close in 10 to 12 weeks.

Bon-Ton has operated at the Berkshire Mall since its acquisition of Pomeroy's in 1987. Bon-Ton Spokeswoman Christine Hojnacki did not return phone calls or emails. The company will close stores that are part of several different chains they own.

'GDP to grow at 7-7.5%, but investors be wary'
Against this (backdrop), the figure excludes many formal workers in sectors outside the GST such as health and education, it said. The Survey numbers boosted the Indian equity indices - Sensex and Nifty - which touched record highs on Monday.

Sales are planned in the stores beginning at the end of the week and will run for about three months.

The plan said there are an additional 20-plus stores that should be considered for inclusion on a "watch list" to monitor for signs of further deterioration.

"I am going to miss it that's for sure".

Bon-Ton has a department store at Park City Center and a furniture gallery nearby on Plaza Boulevard, both of which will stay open.

"The owners of the mall need to decide where to go from here", Mayor Robert Mielke said.

"I feel sad for the employees at the store and its loyal customers who have feared this for some time", she said.
