(Richmond, IN)--It’s good news for Richmond’s Elder-Beerman. Elder-Beerman’s parent company, Bon Ton, has released a list of 42 store closures nationally and the Richmond Elder-Beerman is not on the list. One Elder-Beerman in Ohio is closing; that’s in Defiance. On the national level, Bon Ton has seen declining sales for several years. On the local level, the Richmond Elder-Beerman was late with its last property tax payment to Wayne County and still owes a $3800 penalty.
