Younkers stores could shutter across Iowa as part of bankruptcy

Bon-Ton and Toys "R" Us operated a combined almost 60 million square feet (5.6 million square meters) of store space, according to their latest annual reports, and employed a combined 83,000 when they entered bankruptcy.

According to Reuters, only two bidders - both liquidators - made offers to purchase the bankrupt department store chain at an auction on Monday.

As of late Monday, the auction had not concluded, according to four sources.

The auction is set to resume Tuesday morning in New York, Reorg Research said.

All the participants had a brain scan that specifically looked at the area of the brain called the medial temporal lobe. They used scans to determine the relationship between MTL thickness, physical activity, and sitting behavior.

The failure of the company, with headquarters in York, Pennsylvania and Milwaukee, comes weeks after Toys "R" Us began a piecemeal liquidation of its namesake stores and Babies "R" Us, the latest sign of upheaval in the retail industry.

The other is a joint bid from an ad hoc group of second lien noteholders and Great American Group, which is an affiliate of lienholder B. Riley Financial. Toys "R" Us announced in March that it was going out of business, although a toy mogul has launched a bid to try to buy 275 of the chain's more than 700 USA locations.

A spokesperson for Bon-Ton did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It has been looking for a buyer, but also making contingency lay-off plans in case it is forced to shut down. The liquidators bid as early as January, but investors interested in keeping the company alive proved harder to find.

A judge in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in DE still must sign off on the prevailing bid.
