Bon-Ton Stores to Close All Locations, Plover Younkers Affected

Dept. of Labor notifies Herberger's employees in North Platte of closure

Customers with debt on Herberger's cards still on hook to pay

Bon-Ton has 250 stores, Hojnacki said, and all of them are either already in liquidation sales or will be starting today.

On Feb. 5, Bon-Ton and its subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for a court-supervised financial restructuring under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

That round of closures included Bon-Ton stores in Trexlertown and at Phillipsburg Mall in New Jersey, where liquidation sales are slated to wrap up by the end of this month, store representatives said earlier this week.

Under the approved agreement, the joint venture group of lienholders, Great American Group, LLC and Tiger Capital Group, LLC will acquire the inventory and certain other assets of the company.

Herbergers has operated a store in Valley View Mall since 1980.

On Wednesday afternoon, the 154,000-square-foot Bergner's in Champaign showed no signs of an impending liquidation sale.

"It's just not really worth shopping at", she said.

Landry said she's anxious about what the store closing could mean for the mall.

Bon-Ton Stores, which operates over 250 Herberger's and Younkers Department stores across the US, including a Herberger's store in New Ulm, announced Tuesday they are bankrupt and all stores are expected to close within the next few month. "I am sorry to see this institution go and know that this impacts many employees and others".
