CHAMPAIGN — Wednesday is the last day to shop at the Champaign Bergner's, one of the anchor stores at Market Place Mall.

After liquidation sales began in April, the company announced that its final remaining stores are closing Aug. 29.

Bergner's parent company, Bon-Ton, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February.

Before filing for bankruptcy, Bon-Ton announced it would be closing 42 of its stores, including the Carson's store at the Village Mall in Danville.

After Bon-Tom was bought in an auction by liquidators, the rest of its stores started their liquidation sales.

The Champaign Bergner's is one of four anchor stores at the mall, joined by J.C. Penney, Macy's, and Dick's/Field & Stream.
