Elder Beerman likely to close for good

Liquidation sales will begin Friday, and it's expected to last 10 to 12 weeks.

Going out of business sales begin today for stores under the Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers nameplates, according to The Bon-Ton Stores.

Liquidation sales at its other 38 stores have already started from previously announced closings. On Tuesday night, the company confirmed that Tiger Capital Group and Great Americana Group won the bid for auction of Bon-Ton's parent company Younkers.

Rice Lake has had a Herberger's store since 1945, when it opened on the east side of Main Street, north of Messenger Street. Bon-Ton filed for bankruptcy in February. Another Bon-Ton brand, Herberger's, has stores in Hastings, Kearney, Norfolk, North Platte and Scottsbluff.

Q: Will customers be able to use their Bon-Ton coupons in the closing stores?

The store gained national attention for its merchandising program, and grew from a single store to 11 locations in four states between 1943 and 1972.

Nowhere more so than Monte Carlo where a year ago he became the first player to win the same ATP tournament 10 times. He is now a ten-time champion in men's singles at the Monte-Carlo Masters .

Kalispell Center Mall is owned by Gooddale & Barbieri Co.

"While we are disappointed with the outcome of the Bon-Ton bankruptcy proceedings, we are confident that we can redeploy the inventory and fixtures from these stores to new locations as we continue to service both our existing USA retail network and potential new partners alike", said Fred Mannella, Vice Chairman and Chief Development Officer, LXRandCo.

The closure of Bon-Ton stores affects about 20,000 employees nationally, 2,000 of them in Wisconsin. When Bon-Ton closes, it will be the fourth new vacancy in the mall in a year. So many people shop online now that many brick and mortar stores are forced to close.

Court filings show that all the Younkers and Herberger's stores in Nebraska and Iowa will be closed as part of their corporate owner's sale to liquidators.

Dave Palmer, Butte-Silver Bow's chief executive, called it "devastating news" but noted that numerous nation's large retail stores are closing or struggling and so are malls.

Bon-Ton's websites and mobile e-commerce sites will continue to operate, with the same rules as for in-store purchases applying.
