The closures are the next step in efforts by Bon-Ton Stores to move forward with a more productive store footprint, Bill Tracy, president and chief executive officer, said in a news release. Associates will be able to interview for 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.
Dan Rosenfeld, the director of property representation for Mid-America, said although the company is disappointed that Bon-Ton has chosen to leave the mall, they're going to continue to market the mall as they have been the past year. She did not immediately provide a store-by-store breakdown.
Also closing in IL are Carson's stores in Danville and DeKalb and a Bergner's store in Peoria.

The closures affect roughly 1,860 employees, according to Bon-Ton spokesperson Christine Hojnacki.
The store is the only one in New Jersey affected in the announcement. She said she's been a loyal customer of whatever store occupied the mall space since then. Bon-Ton previously announced the closings of five additional locations as well. "I guess now I'll have to go to Champaign".
