Younkers store in Wisconsin Rapids is closing


WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) - The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. said Tuesday it will close its Younkers store in Wisconsin Rapid this summer, eliminating 45 jobs.

The company said the closure will coincide with the end of its lease for the store in the Rapids Mall on July 31.

"We are very grateful for the devoted Rapids Mall store associates and are committed to providing assistance to these associates," President Brendan Hoffman said in a statement.

The Bon-Ton Stores acquired the Wisconsin Rapids store when it acquired the Northern Department Store Group in 2006, the company said.

The Bon-Ton Stores has corporate headquarters in York, Penn., and Milwaukee and operates 271 department stores under assorted names such as Bergner's, Boston Store, Herberger's and Younkers.
