Bon-Ton Stores Inc., parent company of Elder-Beerman, is starting going-out-of-business sales at some of its store this week.
The retailer said that store closing sales are underway at 42 select locations. The closings are part of the company’s previously announced “store rationalization” program. The company filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
The in-store sales will take place at Bon-Ton branded stores including Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, and Younkers. More store locations are expected to close in addition to the 42 locations previously announced.

Only one store in Ohio will shut down. Elder-Beerman at the Northtowne Mall in Defiance was named as one of the impacted stores. No Elder-Beerman stores in the Dayton region are impacted by this round of store closures. The stores are expected to close in early 2018.
Bon-Ton has a major presence in the Dayton region. Along with its distribution center in Fairborn, there are Elder-Beerman stores across the region in Dayton, Huber Heights, Kettering, Piqua and Beavercreek. Bon-Ton closed a store location at the Ohio Valley Mall in St. Clairsville, Ohio in late March.

— A developer in Huber Heights has spent more than $600,000 on more land off Chambersburg Road in the Lexington Place neighborhood area.
Lexington Developers Inc. spent $604,000 to buy about three acres across more than 10 parcels near River Downs Court and Pimlico Place south of Chambersburg, west of Old Troy Pike.
For 13 parcels, Montgomery County property records identify the seller as Lexington Developers Inc. and the buyer as Lexington Place Project I LLC. State of Ohio incorporation paper for Lexington Place Project were filed by a Dayton attorney.
Scott Falkowski, Huber Heights assistant city manager, said more homes are about to be built.
“They are starting a new section of the development which had been approved by the city for new lots, streets, etc.,” Falkowski said in an email. “They have started clearing for that section. Also, they are buying individual lots that have previously been platted, but have not been sold yet. The smaller acreage that you are talking about are those individual lots that are ready for new homes to be built.”
The planned residential community began development in 2000.
“It’s been a quality development for the city,” Scott Falkowski, Huber Heights assistant city manager, told the Dayton Daily News in 2013, as the development was preparing to add homes at the time. “It’s good to see that they’re continuing to build houses and moving forward. It’s a good sign that the market is turning.”

— Chipotle Mexican Grill is trying out a new menu option at its test kitchen in New York City.
The restaurant chain added quinoa to its menu at the test kitchen. Chipotle is known for its simple assembly-line food concept, but has been trying to innovate in the past year. The chain debuted its queso cheese dip across restaurants in September.

“The quinoa is made with red and gold quinoa tossed with a little citrus juice, cumin and freshly chopped cilantro,” a Chipotle representative told Business Insider. “We are recommending that added to a salad, or in place of rice in another entrée.”
Quinoa is a fiber-rich grain. A cup of cooked quinoa is also packed with protein and iron.
The new menu item comes just after Chipotle named a new chief officer. Chipotle named Taco Bell’s Brian Niccol as its next leader, replacing Steve Ells, who built the fast-casual food chain. Niccol is a 1996 graduate of Miami University, just an hour from Dayton.
