Berks Bon Ton spared in retailer's round of store closings

Bon-Ton announced Wednesday it is closing 42 stores nationwide. In all, he expects 47 stores to close in the early parts of this year.

Bon-Ton, with dual headquarters in Milwaukee and York, Pa., is the parent company of Boston Store, Younkers and other department store brands.

Clearance sales at the affected stores are scheduled to begin on February 1 and run for 10 to 12 weeks.

"As part of the comprehensive turnaround plan we announced in November, we are taking the next steps in our efforts to move forward with a more productive store footprint", said Bill Tracy, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores.

Bon-Ton has a store in Lower Allen Township and a store at the Colonial Park Mall in Lower Paxton Township.

The closest to Berks of the eight Pennsylvania stores being shuttered is located at the Trexler Mall in Lower Macungie Township, Lehigh County.

Last year, the city of Wausau refunded Bon-Ton about $40,400 in property taxes to settle the retailer's complaint that Wausau overvalued the Younkers store in 2016.

Mary Anne Smith says this location is convenient for her and believes too many big name stores are closing.

Local Carson's managers declined to comment on how many full- and part-time employees the store has and referred all questions to its corporate office.

The department store chain announced the State College store's demise on a long list of shutterings that will take place in coming weeks.

The women said they believe closing doesn't bode well for the mall.

The Bon-Ton in Camillus will remain open at this time.
