DHL will provide domestic express and home delivery services to the retailer’s entire network. DHL will deliver these items upon request by customers to a business or residence.
The Bon-Ton operates 278 stores in 23 states in the Northeast, Midwest and upper Great Plains under the Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers. Under the Parisian nameplate it has two stores in the Detroit area.

“We evaluated all of the major US delivery providers based on their ability to serve the entire Bon-Ton network,” said Robert Hook, divisional vice president and transportation manager at The Bon-Ton Stores Inc., in a statement. “Bon-Ton looked at all of the carriers’ service reliability and commitment to technology and automated shipping systems, their ability to support Bon-Ton’s eCommerce business, and overall value. DHL’s strength in all these areas, along with exceptional customer support, was the reason for selecting DHL.”
