The Chicago-based department store chain was founded in 1854. Liquidation sales have been underway since April, when parent company Bon-Ton told a bankruptcy court that it failed to find a buyer.



The flagship store was once on State Street, along with Marshall Field's, Sears, and Montgomery Ward. All are now closed as online shopping becomes more popular.
