ROCKVILLE, Md., April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Goodwill Sale donors and shoppers at The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: BONT) 267 stores, including Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers locations, donated clothing, shoes, accessories and other household textiles weighing 2.1 million pounds during the Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale March 9 through March 26, 2016.

Customers were encouraged to clean out their closets and bring donation items to their local Goodwill or Bon-Ton Stores location. In return, donors received coupons up to 25 percent off for every item donated. Customers could also donate five dollars to receive three coupons.

"Donations during the Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale help Goodwill provide critical job training services and support to citizens looking for employment," said Kim Zimmer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of global development of Goodwill Industries International. "Bon-Ton's commitment to serving their communities has a positive impact on thousands of people, helping them find jobs and care for their families."

The partnership with Bon-Ton Stores is Goodwill's longest-running department store collaboration. For 22 consecutive years, the organizations have joined forces to give shoppers the opportunity to give back by donating during this biannual in-store event. In return, Bon-Ton provides special saving coupons to customers for each item donated. Events like the Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale are vital to driving the donations and contributions that support Goodwill's work, which is based on the belief that the power of work can change lives, support family stability and improve communities.

"We are thrilled with the amount of donations we collected from our customers and associates during the Spring Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale," said Kathryn Bufano, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. "At Bon-Ton, we are committed to giving back in every community we serve and we are proud to have made such an impact by helping people find jobs through Goodwill services."
