Department store Bon-Ton says it's coming back

The department store Bon-Ton is coming back, according to a banner posted on their website Thursday.

"We've got great news, Bon-Ton is coming back," the banner reads. The website adds to stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks. 

An Indiana-based company announced that it had signed a deal to purchase the rights to the department store on Thursday. 

It's still unclear which locations will re-open.    

A subsidiary of CSC Generation Holdings signed a deal to purchase the intellectual rights to Bon-Ton and the six other department stores under its umbrella, USA Today is reporting. 

The new Bon-Ton will reportedly focus primarily on its online presence. 

In a statement, CSC Generation said that it is in "advance discussions with landlords" to reopen some stores in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.

Former employees will likely staff these stores. 

It is still unclear which stores in Pennsylvania might reopen, but the Stroud Mall in Monroe County has already leased its space to Shop Rite.    

Other malls in the area have not returned calls for comment. 

CSC Generation says the new Bon-Ton will be "a department store tailored to the expectations of the modern customer." 

The Delaware Bankruptcy Court will have to approve the deal in order for it to go through. 

The company filed for bankruptcy back in January and recently liquidated all of its stores.

Two liquidation firms won an auction to take the bankrupt company's assets, which includes more than 200 stores across the country.
