On February 4, 2018, The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., announced that the Company and its subsidiaries have filed voluntary petitions for a court-supervised financial restructuring under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The Company is currently engaged in constructive discussions with potential investors and its debtholders on a financial restructuring plan. Bon-Ton intends to use this court-supervised process to explore potential strategic alternatives to maximize value for the benefit of its stakeholders, which may include a sale of the Company or certain of its assets as part of the plan of reorganization.
The Company’s continuing stores, e-commerce and mobile platforms under the Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers nameplates are open and operating as usual. The Company intends to pay vendors in the ordinary course for all goods and services delivered after the filling date, pending Court approval of customary motions.
The Bon-Ton Stores case has been assigned to Judge Mary F. Walrath and Case No. 18-10248. The Docket can be accessed on this website or through the website maintained by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
