People in Door and Kewaunee Counties can shop at Younkers again, at least online. CSC Generation Holdings, the new owner of Bon Ton, relaunched websites for the Younkers and other Bon Ton store brands over the weekend. The company has also announced that several stores in the Milwaukee area will reopen in time for the Christmas shopping season. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler sees that as a hopeful sign for Sturgeon Bay and Door County, though other options are still being considered for the vacant store.
The EDC is currently doing a survey on retailing in Door County and Sturgeon Bay to find the area’s strengths and match them with prospective retailers.
