In addition to Boston Store and Younkers, Bon-Ton operates department stores in the US under the brand names Bergner's, Bon-Ton, Carson's, Elder-Beerman and Herberger's.
Bon Ton, the company that owns the retail chain, is liquidating and shutting down 200 stores across the nation.
Bon-Ton operates 17 stores across Iowa, including Younkers locations in Des Moines, Davenport, Dubuque, Marshalltown and Waterloo and a Herberger's in Ottumwa.
The Department of Labor, according to a current Herberger's employee, is calling Herberger's employees in North Platte to notify them of the store's closing.
Wednesday, a bankruptcy court approved Bon-Ton's sale of all assets and a plan to wind down company operations.
A group of investors that included mall owners Namdar Realty Group and Washington Prime Group had signed a letter of intent to bid for the stores and keep them open.
Bon-Ton had already announced in January that that store would be closing, along with more than 40 others.
