(Milwaukee, WI) -- Bon-Ton Stores is filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Bon-Ton operates a local store at the Newburgh Mall.
Brands that make up Bon-Ton include Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman and Younkers. The company recently announced plans to close 47 of its 260 stores. The company is under heavy debt and sales competition from digital rivals.
