The Bon-Ton department store in Marketplace Mall is due to close by next March. In a notice filed with the state labor department, the company says 73 employees will be impacted by the closing, and they will be laid off next February.
A couple of years ago The Bon-ton had announced it was shutting down operations at Eastview, Marketplace, and the Mall at Greece Ridge.
The stores have already been replaced at Eastview and Greece Ridge through renovation projects at those malls. An official with the mall's owner, Wilmorite, says that it has already begun planning for development of the Bon-Ton space at Marketplace which the mall owner says will include concepts not currently found in this area.
Details are expected to be provided in the coming weeks.
