EXCLUSIVE: Bergner's employees notified of potential June 5 layoffs

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

We have new information tonight on the possible future of area Bergner’s locations.

We've received a copy of a letter sent to Bergner’s employees at the Shoppes at Grand Prairie.

The letter tells employees "You should not plan on having employment beyond the dates set forth above."

That date is June 5, 2018.

The letter details the parent company Bon-ton Stores intention to sell the company, and states, "We cannot guarantee that sale will happen."

In the meantime, the letter indicates the timetable for all this is up in the air apologizing to employees.

If the store closes, the letter said "It is expected to be permanent."

We've reached out to the real estate company who owns the Shoppes for clarification. We're waiting on a response.
