Sioux City Younkers to close, according to reports

Bon-Ton operates two Younkers stores in Omaha at Oak View and Westroads Malls and one at Gateway Mall in Lincoln.

One liquidator group estimated their initial bid was worth about $650 million, according to a creditor representative who spoke to Reuters.

Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., has 250 stores operating under several names.
