Closing down sales start at Minnesota Herberger's stores today

Minnesota is losing all 18 of its remaining stores, plus 2 Younkers.
Publish date:

Closing down sales at the remaining Herberger's stores in Minnesota get underway on Friday.

Its parent company, The Bon-Ton Stores, announced bankruptcy earlier this year and this week confirmed the only bidders for its business were two liquidation firms.

As a result, its 250 locations across the country – including the Herberger's and Younkers chains – will shut down over the next 10-12 weeks.

The 18 Herberger's in Minnesota will go (the closures of 3 of which had already been confirmed), as well as two Younkers stores in Duluth and Austin.

Prices will start getting marked down on Friday as the chain starts to get rid of its remaining stock.

It'll come as a blow in particular to Greater Minnesota, where Herberger's has long been an anchor retailer in local malls.

It was one of the main retailers for example in the Thunderbird Mall in Virginia, as well as the Paul Bunyan Mall in Bemidji.

It also comes not long after a number of closures by another department store staple, JCPenney.

For example, it's closing its store in the Viking Plaza Mall in Alexandria this May, with Herberger's to then follow by the end of August, the Echo Press reports.
