I happened on the Bon-Ton web site and found that it had reopened, then searched for news.
From one of the articles:
The bankrupt Bon-Ton stores and its associated nameplates Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers have been relaunched as online retailers. Indiana-based technology and retail investment firm CSC Generation bought Bon-Ton’s trademarks and various intellectual properties for $900,000 in bankruptcy court, then relaunched the chains online over the weekend [September 16].
Bon-Ton filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February and was unable to secure an investor to continue operating normal business, leading to liquidation beginning in April. Although Bon-Ton’s stores closed on Aug. 29, CSC Generation is in discussions with landlords about reopening stores in Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and plans to recruit former Bon-Ton employees, according to a statement from the company.
“We are sprinting to get as much done as possible before the holidays,” said Jordan Voloshin, co-president of CSC Generation, in a statement. “We hope that our track record of revitalizing retailers reassures Bon-Ton customers that the company is in safe hands.”
