It's one of the only remaining large retail locations in Superior, but in just weeks Younkers in the Mariner Mall will close its doors forever.

Bon-Ton Stores Inc. announced that they will close the store in 8-12 weeks. One Younkers location will remain in the Twin Ports at the Miller Hill Mall in Duluth.

The Superior location is one of several closings announced by Younkers parent company today, including 8 other stores in Wisconsin and 1 in Minnesota.

According to the press release, "the store closing sales are scheduled to begin on February 1, 2018, and run for approximately 10 to 12 weeks. Associates at these locations will be offered the opportunity to interview for available positions at other store locations."

In recent years Superior has lost its Target and Kmart stores.
