Great American Group and Tiger Capital Group to Immediately Liquidate All 212 Bon-Ton Stores

LOS ANGELES, April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great American Group, LLC (GA), a leading provider of asset disposition and auction solutions, advisory and valuation services, and a subsidiary of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ:RILY), and Tiger Capital Group, LLC, a provider of asset valuation, advisory and disposition services, announced today that they have engaged with Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. to facilitate the orderly exit of the remaining 212 operating Bon-Ton locations across the United States.

The store closing sales began today, April 20, 2018 and are expected to last until all merchandise has been liquidated. Shoppers can expect to find significant, storewide savings on Bon-ton’s broad assortment of national and private brand fashion apparel and accessories for women, men and children, as well as cosmetics and home furnishings.

Scott Carpenter, President of GA’s Retail Solutions division commented: "Bon-Ton has been around for 160 years and has become a household name for many shoppers. It’s always sad to see such an iconic retailer of quality merchandise go out of business, but consumers have a rare opportunity to enjoy dramatic discounts on their favorite items in every department in every store."

“Over the next several weeks, we will work to quickly sell through all of Bon-Ton’s merchandise,” said Michael McGrail, COO of Tiger Capital Group. “A sale of this magnitude is a very rare event, so shoppers are encouraged to come in early while the widest selection is still available. We expect merchandise to sell very quickly.”

The closing stores, which include nine furniture galleries, are located in 23 states across the Northeast, Midwest and upper Great Plains, and will remain under the Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Bergner's, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers nameplates throughout the sale.
