Only one store in Ohio will shut down. Elder-Beerman at the Northtowne Mall in Defiance was named as one of the impacted stores. No Elder-Beerman stores in the Dayton region are impacted by this round of store closures. The stores are expected to close in early 2018.

Bon-Ton has partnered with a third-party liquidator, Hilco Merchant Resources, to help manage the store closing sales. The store closing sales are scheduled to begin today and run for approximately 10 to 12 weeks. Associates at these locations will be offered the opportunity to interview for available positions at other store locations.

“Including other recently announced store closures, we expect to close a total of 47 stores in early 2018. We remain focused on executing our key initiatives to drive improved performance in an effort to strengthen our capital structure to support the business going forward,” said Bill Tracy, president and chief executive officer for The Bon-Ton Stores.
