According to ABC News, Bon-Ton Stores is apparently headed to closure. Officials say the only two bidders at auction were liquidators.
Once the auction ends, a judge will need to sign off on the final sale.
Stores operated by Bon-Ton include Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Bergner’s, Boston Stores, Herberger’s, and Younkers. No word on the status of Carson’s at the Cross County Mall in Mattoon.
