In April 2018, a bankruptcy court hearing was held, during which the sale and liquidation details of 260 retail establishments owned by Bon-Ton Stores Inc. were approved. In January, the Lewistown store was one of 10 department store properties auctioned in New York. Real estate advisory and brokerage firm A&G Realty Partners organized the bankruptcy auction, which included properties located in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Indiana and Illinois. The Lewistown Bon-Ton was the only store on the auction list located in Pennsylvania.
