Another day, another department store closing.

I swear in five years, we will have no way of trying anything on in person. Nope, we will be shopping online only.

This afternoon, Bon-Ton Corporation announced 47 store closings across the country, seven of which are in Illinois.

It looks like the store in Rockford will remain open, but many nearby stores are not staying open.

The biggest shock is the Carson's store in Schaumburg at the Streets of Woodfield. I could not believe that the store will be closing in that location.

The list includes these Illinois stores:

  • Carson's Clearance Center, Aurora
  • Carson's Riverside Plaza, Chicago
  • Carson's Village Mall, Danville
  • Carson's Northland Plaza, DeKalb
  • Carson's Clearance Center, Morton Grove
  • Bergner's, Peoria
  • Carson's, Schaumburg
