The company that could reopen the former Younkers store in Sturgeon Bay and other locations would offer expanded store hours on key shopping days. It could also put many former employees back to work. CSC Generation Holdings has signed a deal giving it the rights to Bon Ton and its subsidiary stores, including Younkers. The company is in, what USA Today called, “advanced discussions with landlords” about reopening stores in Wisconsin and four other states. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says CSC’s proposal would work well in Sturgeon Bay.
CSC Generation Holdings also plans to add personal styling services at the former stores and more e-commerce options. The company’s plan must first be approved by the Delaware Bankruptcy Court.
