Could Boston Store be coming back? Company website seems to indicate ‘yes’

MILWAUKEE -- As Boston Store winds down sales at its Milwaukee area locations, the Boston Store website hints to something big.

The top of BostonStore.com says...

"We've got great news -- Boston Store is coming back!"

What does this mean exactly? It is not clear. The site reads "Stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks. We appreciate your loyalty & look forward tobeing able to serve you again soon."

The same message can be found at the top of the Herberger's, Carson's and Bon-Ton websites.

Here is a statement received on Friday afternoon, Aug. 31 from Great American Group (the lead on the Boston Store liquidation):

"All of Bon-Ton Stores’ physical store locations will be closed as of today. The company’s intellectual property is in the process of being sold. We cannot speak to the purchaser’s future plans with the company. All inquiries should be referred to the buyer which will be disclosed once the transaction is closed."
