Bergner’s back in business as online retailer; may relaunch some Illinois stores


Bon-Ton stores, which owns Bergner’s, Carson’s, and Younkers, has relaunched its brands as online retailers.

Indiana-based CSC Generation bought Bon-Ton’s trademarks for $900,000 in bankruptcy court and relaunched the chains over the weekend.

Bon-Ton went bankrupt in February and liquidated its stores beginning in April.

The physical stores closed on August 29th, but according to a statement, CSC Generation is in discussion with landlords about reopening select stores in Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and plans to recruit former Bon-Ton employees.

“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.”
