Bergner’s and other properties owned by The BonTon Stores Inc. posted a mysterious message to their websites Friday suggesting the stores were going to return.
Bergner’s website proclaimed "We’ve got great news. Bergner’s is coming back! Stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks! We appreciate your loyalty & look forward to being able to serve you again soon."
A similar message appeared on the websites of Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beernam, Herberger’s and Yonkers.
It is unclear what this means for the future of the former Quincy store. WGEM News reached out to Cullen Property, Owners of the Quincy Mall. A spokesperson said they were unaware of any plans for Bergner’s to return to the Quincy Mall.
The Milwaukee Business Journal reported that Scott Carpenter, president of retail solutions at Great American Group, issued a statement Friday saying that BonTon is in the process of selling their intellectual property.
