The Kalispell Herberger's department store will close after its parent company was sold at auction for liquidation on Wednesday.

Stores are to be closed by August 31 at the latest, according to court documents, which also stated coupons are no longer accepted.

On Feb. 4, 2018, Bon-Ton and its subsidiaries 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.


All Bon-Ton credit cards will no longer be accepted as a form of payment in-store and online, and all accounts will be closed as of June 26. That left only liquidation firms bidding for the company.

The company stated that it will reveal further details about the liquidation plans and going out of business at its stores, once the Bankruptcy Court approves the winning bid.

Going out of business sales will begin Friday at 212 stores owned by The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. including Eau Claire's Younkers store.


The stores' websites will continue serving customers through the closures as well.

The company also operates stores under the Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, and Younkers nameplates.
