Goodwill Industries and The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. are encouraging consumers to donate and save during the semi-annual Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale, which will take place from March 13-30.
Throughout the sale, The Bon-Ton stores which operates under nameplates Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's, and Younkers will be accepting donations of used clothing and soft home goods to benefit Goodwill.
