Herberger’s in Bismarck appears likely to be liquidated.
The Bismarck store is one of 200 regional department stores owned by Bon-Ton Stores Inc, which filed bankruptcy in February.
The store had been working with a pair of mall owners in an effort to find a bid to keep a large portion of the stores open. But according to Reuters, which cited “two sources familiar with the matter,” the only two companies to enter bids in a court-supervised auction Monday were liquidation firms.
Herberger’s is located in the Kirkwood Mall and has been one of the mall’s major anchor tenants since the mall first opened.
