3 area Boston Stores to close

Bon-Ton, parent company of Boston Store, has been ailing and notified the state of the mass closure Friday.

These layoffs will only occur if the company fails to attract a buyer at a bankruptcy auction scheduled for Monday, April 9.

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. plans to close its fulfillment center in West Jefferson, Ohio in early June.

On March 30, Bon-Ton announced that it was in active discussions with companies interested in a bid to purchase Bon-Ton.

The Younkers in the Marshfield mall is closing, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development announced Friday.

"We are required to provide notification under certain state and federal laws of potential job losses even as we work diligently to complete a sale of the company as a going concern", a Bon-Ton spokeswoman said.

"There's a lot of small shops in the mall with comparable products and JC Penney is a very similar player as well", Schultz said.

In January, Bon-Ton announced it was closing these local Younkers stores: Fox River Mall in Grand Chute; Lakeshore Mall in Manitowoc; Pine Tree Mall in Marinette; Forest Mall in Fond du Lac.

The bid for Bon-Ton offers a path for the retailer to survive, according to sources in the report.

Bon-Ton now operates more than 200 stores across 23 states, under the nameplates of Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers.

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Younkers Department Store in Eau Claire is closing.

No other stores were listed.

"It's certainly a discouraging announcement but it's also a boost to our workforce availability", Jadin said of a market clambering for employees and an unemployment rate at just two percent. "It's hard to answer how they're different", she said.
