UPDATE - Downtown Sheboygan to lose Boston Store, but offers new opportunities

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The Boston Store in downtown Sheboygan will be closing in a few months.  Bon-Ton Stores Inc. announced Wednesday they will vacate their location in the Harbor Center Business Improvement District following the end of their lease on January 31st.  The store’s approximate 80 employees will either be moved to other locations or receive severance benefits.

Mayor Mike Vandersteen said he is disappointed to see the store leave after being in the downtown area for decades - first as a Prange's, then a Yonkers before becoming The Boston Store.  He adds the city will be working with BID and other city officials to try to refill the spot as measures are in place to handle this situation.

BID Manager Dave Hoffman shared similar sentiments, but sees the news as a  chance for new opportunities for the downtown area, as a master plan is in the works to revitalize it.  One possible suggestion, based on a consulting firm helping with the plan, is to grow the district’s arts and culture base.  He adds that they are not looking at filling the location with another department store.  The master plan will be released in mid-January.
