I don't think I've ever actually seen a Bon-Ton store.

Sad to see them go, but I know we won't miss typing up their 486-page Black Friday ad each year...
If anyone hears about the discounts they are offering in their liquidation sale starting today, please post here.

Yeah, stores in my area are on the updated list...several stores closed years ago and now it looks like the remaining stores will finely see their last leg by the end of Summer or sooner...

I stopped by a Bon-Ton in Pennsylvania on Sunday. Discounts were mostly around 50% off ticketed price, with some 60 and 70% off. Still, I didn't see much that I considered a real bargain because the printed ticket prices were high.
I looked at one particular pair of HiTec hiking boots that I was interested in previously and did an online comparison. Their printed label showed a price of $100 and they were 50% off. But their price for sale on the HiTec website was $70 and other stores and sites had them for just under that price. That makes $50 look good, but I know that I had seen them on sale for 40 to 50% off that $70 price during sales in the past, so a fair deal, but not so great for a true bargain shopper.
So maybe worth a visit, but don't be fooled by the % discount alone.

Oh, and I forgot to mention: it was 100 degrees outside when I visited the Bon-Ton store, which was at the end of a small mall. They were not running any air conditioning inside the Bon-Ton, only some very big fans. It was probably about 85 degrees in the store.

Yeah Bon-Ton is really stretching out this sale for another 2 months, so there aren't too many real deals just yet.
