(Milwaukee) -- Bon-Ton Stores Inc. says it's closing 42 stores across the country following years of declining sales, most of them in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

In the midstate, that includes a Bon-Ton at The Point at Carlisle Plaza shopping mall.

The company--which has dual headquarters in York County and Milwaukee, WI--said in November that it would shut at least 40 stores in 2018, but it didn't identify the locations.

The department chain's stores operate under various banners, including Boston Store, Carson's, Younkers, Herberger's and Elder-Beerman.

The company said Wednesday that it would close a total of 17 stores in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. At least a dozen other states will also see store closures, mostly in the Midwest and Northeast.

The company said in a recent regulatory filing that it was in talks with debt holders about restructuring. The company operates 260 stores that also include furniture galleries and clearance centers.
