Four Chicago-area Carson's stores will close this spring as part of Bon-Ton Stores' turnaround plan, one that involves the shutdown of 42 stores nationally. However, the location at Trexlertown, Lehigh County will be closed.

"We remain focused on executing our key initiative to drive improved performance in an effort to strengthen our capital structure to support the business going forward", Tracy said.

Cedar Rapids will lose its Younkers store at Westdale shopping mall this year as its parent company shutters locations around the country.

The stores will have sales starting Thursday, February 1 and run for about 10 or 12 weeks.

The Tabani Group, which owns the mall, hasn't been formally notified, but it did receive Bon-Ton's news release, spokeswoman Theresa Dorlan said.

Bon-Ton previously announced the closings of five additional locations as well.

Google also now has a much larger presence in Taipei, Taiwan which is now its largest engineering site in the Asia Pacific region. However, the deal could also boost Google's efforts in competing with Apple by making its custom chips with relative ease.

In addition to the Watertown store, a Bon-Ton in Queensbury, NY is closing.

The company says closing the stores is all in part of their store rationalization program.

The parent company of Carson's department stores is closing seven stores in IL. The closing stores include the company's Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers nameplates.

The women said they believe closing doesn't bode well for the mall. She declined to provide any other information.

"The owners of the mall need to decide where to go from here", Mayor Robert Mielke said.

"I feel sad for the employees at the store and its loyal customers who have feared this for some time", she said.
