Carson's To Close All Stores, Including Howell Location

Carson's To Close All Stores, Including Howell Location

Following an announcement by Bon-Ton Stores Inc. on April 18 that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of DE approved a sale between the company and a joint venture, Bon-Ton announced it will work "constructively with the winning bidder to ensure an orderly wind-down of operations that minimizes the impact on associates, customers, vendors and the communities" the stores serve.

The parent firm of Elder-Beerman stores, Bon-Ton Stores Inc., said sales online and at 212 of its stores, including Elder-Beerman, Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Herberger's, and Younkers, are to commence Friday and run through the next 10 to 12 weeks.

The group of liquidators and creditors who bought Bon-Ton out of bankruptcy for nearly $800 million in an auction that ended Tuesday are wasting no time in winding down the retailer.

If you have store credits or gift cards or certificates, they'll be valid for 10 days from the start of the "going out of business" sale, or until April 29th. The company on Tuesday announced a winning bid for the company's assets in a bankruptcy auction. In the eastern part of the state, it operates stores in Saratoga Springs, Queensbury and Newburgh.

She said if the Herberger's closes, "You're going to lose the Center Mall completely". Beginning in October, a $1.35 million project to redevelop the site began, with TJX officials announcing this week that a Marshalls store will open after months of signs being on display.
