Local Younkers to Close
While new businesses continue to move in to the Pine Tree Mall, one big name will be leaving. Bon-Ton Stores has announced an additional 42 locations that will close in the first part of the year as part of the company’s rationalization program. Included on that list is the Younkers in Marinette, as well as the one in Appleton’s Fox River Mall. Store closing sales are scheduled to begin today and run for approximately ten to twelve weeks. The Marquette, Michigan Younkers was among the initial five stores Bon-Ton said would be shut down. The closures are said to be part of the company’s effort to create a more productive store footprint and strengthen their capital structure.
