3 Herberger's in Minnesota could shutter as part of national closures

Its parent company has filed for bankruptcy.

Three Herberger's stores in Minnesota are at risk of closure amid the struggles of its parent company.

The state's Department of Employment Economic Development (DEED) has confirmed to Bring Me The News it has been made aware of possible closures by the Bon-Ton Stores.

The stores earmarked for possible closure are those in Bloomington, Roseville and Stillwater, as well as a Younkers store in the Miller Hill Mall, Duluth, which is also owned by Bon-Ton.

The move could impact 500 workers, with DEED saying: "DEED’s Dislocated Worker team will begin to work with the company to ensure that impacted employees are made aware of the programs and opportunities available to them through the state."

The Bon-Ton's struggles have been known of for a while not. It filed for bankruptcy protection in February and announced the closure of 47 stores nationwide – including the Herberger's Clearance Center in Maplewood.

Herberger's has a big presence in Minnesota, particularly outside of the Twin Cities where three-quarters of its 20 stores are located.

The location of the three stores it's considering closing could suggest that those outside the Twin Cities are performing better.

The company has yet to make a final decision on the closures.
