About Younkers

Younkers was a well-known department store chain that had a strong presence in the Midwest region of the United States. The company was founded in 1856 in Keokuk, Iowa, and grew over the years to become a prominent retailer offering a wide range of merchandise. Younkers stores were known for their variety of products, including clothing, accessories, cosmetics, home goods, and furniture.

Throughout its history, Younkers developed a reputation for providing quality products and excellent customer service. The stores often featured special promotions, sales, and events to attract customers. Younkers also offered various services such as personal shopping assistance and bridal registry.

In 1996, Younkers merged with Proffitt's, another department store chain, to form the company known as Saks Incorporated. Over time, Saks Incorporated went through additional changes and acquisitions, and in 2006, the company rebranded as Bon-Ton Stores Inc., which became the parent company of Younkers.
