MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (February 17, 2011) – Local nonprofit organizations are participating in a unique fundraising opportunity with their local Bergner’s, Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Younkers and Parisian stores.  Everyone can take advantage of the saving and at the same time supporting their community by buying a $5 coupon booklet from a participating organization or at the store on Saturday, February 26, 2011. Stores open early at 7 am providing an opportunity for local 501C3 organizations, schools and churches to sell booklets at the store to earn funding needed to support their mission.

Groups selling the booklets keep 100% of the $5 price.  Each booklet contains special savings coupons valid on regular and sale price merchandise on Community Day.  Last February, this event helped non-profits raise nearly $4 million.

Organizations will continue selling booklets through Saturday, February 26.  For a $5 donation, purchasers get a $10 off coupon, valid on an item of $10 or more, a 30% off early bird coupon that is valid until 10 a.m., a 20% off shopping pass to use over and over on almost everything in the store, plus special bonus items.

“We encourage the community to support their local participating groups on Community Day.” stated Bud Bergren, president and chief executive officer for The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., “We have made it easy by giving customers shopping discounts including a $10 coupon for every $5 donated.  Our customers and community partners find great value in this fundraising event.”

Customers do not need to purchase a booklet to shop on Community Day.  Hundreds of door buster items will be available from 7am-1pm as well as other great offers throughout the store.

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. operates 275 stores, including 11 furniture galleries, 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 nameplates and, under the Parisian nameplate, stores in the Detroit, Michigan area.
