ONLY 2 BIDS FOR BON-TON COME FROM LIQ­UIDA­TORS

USA TODAY US Edition - - USA TODAY MONEY -

The only two bids at the start of a bank­ruptcy auc­tion for depart­ment store chain Bon-Ton Stores Inc. were from liq­uida­tors, sig­nal­ing the likely end for the re­tailer. Reuters, cit­ing two sources familiar with the mat­ter, said Bon-Ton will go out of busi­ness with­out a bid from a go­ing-con­cern bid­der. Bon-Ton ex­ec­u­tives had hoped to find a buyer that would help turn around the for­tunes of the re­tailer, which is the par­ent com­pany of Bos­ton Store, Younkers and other stores.
