Instead of contest .... can you PLEASE update your computer system? It takes forever to cash out. & I've been to 5 different stores and ,there's one that needs a whole ceiling ... major safety hazzard .
>>> Just Me 7/9/2014 6:39:24 PM
If you feel it is a safety hazard, why didn't you give the name of the town the store is in? How can it be fixed if no one knows about it?
>>> Anonymous 7/13/2014 2:09:43 PM
Instead of contests, why not a raise for the ones who stuck it out and worked to what we thought would be the end of Bon Worth?

Why should a customer have to report hazard in any store. What is the store mgr. And area mgr. Doing about it. They both already know corp doesn't care.

The store at Monroe is now closed. It's too bad that we have loss this store
>>> Eloise Chase, Florida 7/18/2014 8:16:09 AM
Please listen up. I was a retailer in clothing for 30 years, Its not as easy as it looks. Hiring employees is a HORROR, they get the job then they become bossy,lazy, and only want the paycheck, they steal, open the store late, close early and do the stupidest things. So before you point fingers at Bon Worth or any other store, become a store owner,,,, You'll see.. its NO fun. You would also be shocked and devastated how some customers act as well. They are rude, demanding and always want something for nothing, they don't understand the monthly rent is $5,000.00 a month and the profit margins are low. Customers are always buying items, wear them and then want a cash refund. Then they do it all over again. So before you point fingers at stores for this and that, become a store owner, and bring a bottle along, as you'll want to do a lot of drinking.

Yeah, funny how they put store openings on the web site but they never tell when a store is closing. They let that up to the hard working staff. Think about it. Never a word to the public but the staff in the stores had to break our customers hearts when we told them we would all be closed by July. Then they didn't close. They always have the little guy do the dirty work and how do they repay you?

our store closed some time ago. I just loved that store I could go in and find something everytime. prices were real good. I have ben trying to buy their poly poplin slacks, can't find any. sure wish we could get a store back. they were in our mall which is a joke. only shoe stores and clothing for young people. they should have gone into smaller malls that aren't expensive. sure wish we could have one again. we had people in our store that weren't nice several managers that usually tells you the store was in the wrong place. so many people never knew where I got my clothes, they don't advertise, a lot of the older people shopped there because that's the kind of clothes we wanted.

When the well dressed, well spoken, intelligent sales clerks that work for the minimum wages the law allows, begin to quit and they hire thew next minimum wage group of tattooed, stud pierced, spiked hair, flip flop wearing cheap help, things will change rapidly and that'll be the end of Bob worth
>>> Employee, nc 5/18/2014 2:53:59 PM
For your info, BonWorth already has tattooed, and pierced employess who work very hard to serve the customers. You never see the tatoos or piercings because the employees follow the polices about these issues. As far as min wage, bonworth hires many entry level employees at a higher rate then the min. wage. Let's hope the new owners increase the overall wages of all their dedicated hard working staff.

>>> molly johnson, florida 7/18/2014 8:32:02 AM
From my experience in retail, plus sizes are a loss profit items. Large ladies are always on a diet, or want to look like a size 10 when they buy a size 24. No matter what you have in store they want something else. Most large size specialty stores have closed, must be a reason? Plus sizes don't understand why they have to pay more for there sizes, Hello.... a lot more fabric, thread and time involved. There is a lot more profit in selling Petites over plus, petites is a great area for profits. I have always said they a group of plus ladies should all pool there money and open a plus size store! Then they would better understand the profit loss is plus sizes. My suggestion is to get a seamstress and have them make your clothing, its a perfect way to solve the problem and they would have there own look, Walmart has some great fabrics now, its the best solution to a growing problem

The stores in the Sun City AZ area have kept all customers aware of the negotiations and the merger. I have never met a grumpy or disgruntled employee in Bon Worth and I have been shopping all over the country. You have a fantastic clothing line and excited about more to come. I love the LeChute for travel and just about anything you carry. You have very devoted staff in all the stores that I have shopped. Will definitely miss Irene at one of the stores as she retires. Frequent shoppers are treated like family. Thanks for making it possible to keep the Bon Worth stores in business.

I can't believe an employee would write a comment like that one saying they didn't need a customer. It doesn't say much for an employer, who would hire someone like that. I always liked Bon Worth but don't feel too bad about the store closing, if they have employees like that

Hopefully the new company will advertise more. We need posters we can put in the window advertising all three sizes. Our customers can't see the small poster we have on our rounders. It needed brighter colors to catch the customers eye, not browns on sand. If they go with new models hope the clothes fit them better. New size charts showing XL is a 20-22 would be nice too. Waite and see.....

I am constantly asked if we sell plus sized clothing. Will the new owners begin carrying plus sized apparel? Also the ladies are asking about our company carrying solid blazers with skirts to match. We could capture yet another part of the market if we carried solid blazers and skirts and of course blouses to match.

Whenever I travel to the U.S.A. I stock up on Bon Worth fashions......most of my wardrobe consists of B.W. I also was thrilled to often purchase from their online website and have clothes shipped right to my door here in Canada. However, sadly, a year ago they informed me they will no longer ship to Canada, due to their impending closure. Well now that the closure is NOT going to happen, PLEASE, PLEASE start shipping to Canada again! Kind Regards and God Bless.

It's amazing how some employees know more than others. Why aren't we all told the same news. All we want to do is tell our customers what we'll be selling after June. If it's not the typical Bon Worth styles that have room for our ladies then I think we'll be losing a large group of shoppers. In our store the Morgan Crossing tops don't sell until they're at final sale price. It's going to be difficult to get rid of "Bon Worth" clothing by June for the new company. Sales should have started earlier.

How come the stores and the web-site show different items on sale? Web site showed jewelry and accessories 20% off, I went to a store today and nothing was marked 20% off. Asked the clerk about it and she didn't know anything about it. How come they can't have access to the web-site at the store? She was gracious enough to give me the 20 % off on the scarf I wanted to buy. Come on Bon Worth, other stores have this ability. Saves some anxious moments for customer and employee.

Went to a store today after looking on the web-site. Web site showed jewelry and accessories 20% off at stores. I wanted to buy a scarf and asked about the 20% off since it wasn't marked. Employee said she didn't know that they were 20% off. How come the web site and stores don't match? Why can't they pull up the web site and check? Other stores can do that....It would have saved some anxious moments for both of us.She was gracious enough to give me the scarf at 20% off.

Everything in store is 20% off today. The employee did not (GIVE) you the discount, its already in the register system. The prices on the website and in stores are always the same no matter the type of sale going on. It sounds like you had an uninformed employee.

>>> Anonymous 5/3/2014 6:02:46 PM
Misinformed: Everything is not 20 % off. It was an additional 20% off your TOTAL PURCHASE. The computer DID NOT RING UP accessories/scarves at 20 % and then the 20 % off the total purchase. Just the portion of the 20% of the total purchase. I know how to read receipts. Maybe that's why Bon Worth is having so many problems.
>>> Anonymous 5/4/2014 12:05:35 PM
Wow! but - just an FYI when we set our register, per instructions that every store has, everything in our store rings up at an additional 20% off and shows the final price for each item. (that way there is nothing to "figure out" if there is a return of something on that receipt either) That's how the system works in every store. We had a great day and lots of fun - Loved seeing so many of our wonderful loyal and also new customers!! I hope even though it was a busy work filled day that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did in our store!

Not all post/comments have been negative or full of drama. Many of the post are from concerned happy employees who want to keep and do their job well. It has been the overall lack of info from corp and the many unexpected store closings that have caused many of us to use this site as some way to get info.

Visit our web site at www,bonworth.com to view a complete store list. Also remember our company wide customer appreciation day on Saturday May 3rd. Every customer will receive an additional 20 percent off your total purchase. Even sale items. This will also be offered online as well . I am sure that corporate office would love nothing more than to give everyone an update however purchasing and selling a large company is not something that happens easily overnight and honestly until it is completely done there is nothing to report. They have told us all they know that this is a very motivated and interested company that wishes to purchase us. I am sure they wish it was already completed.

My area mgr discussed the sale with us this week. She got the info from our regional MGR. She said the (BINDING SALE) papers are to be signed by end of April, then final sale to be completed by June 28th. The end of the retail month/fiscal year for company. Makes sense, since new health insurance is due usually july 1. The new owners want as much old inventory out of the stores asap. Hence the many transfers and large markdowns we have been giving to do. Time will tell as to how this is all going to work out. I know many customers are afraid that we will not carry BW styles anymore. Just think we will carry less but also have many new styles to choose from too. I for one am glad to get this very old merchandise out of the stores. It has a tendency to make our stores look junky. Lots of changes headed our way.

Why aren't all employees being told the same thing?

Morgan Crossing isn't selling well in our stores. The blouses are to form fitting, and the customers don't buy them till they are final mark down prices. Then bring them back because there isn't enough room in them because of the darts. They need to do more than 20% off for CAD..... Can't wait to see markdowns next Tuesday.

Why do you think there are going to be such big changes. The new company may keep all managers and our system till they get a feel of what the consumers will do.

So there may be DOTS, may be the lousy computer system and lousy employees. Get over it.
>>> employee 4/23/2014 1:15:01 PM
Morgan Crossing is selling now. Its at a better price and the colors seem to appeal to the customers now that it is spring. The non plaid pastel shirts-pink-blue and purple are a big hit right now. Pure Elements is one of our past designers, so they know our size specs and signature style. It is really time for some fresh younger styles for our younger older customers. This new owner is sitting on a gold mine as far as this age group goes. Not many places they can shop for the kind of clothes we can offer.

Yes it's nice to get every penny you can.... But I think I'd take a little less to get rid of stock, then to take pennies for it when you send it to a clearing house. Most of our ladies don't buy unless the clothes are on sale. When you get transfers in from other stores and can't sell the stuff you already have then full price merchandise becomes a problem. So if we're SOLD now comes the waiting game to see who they keep. Doesn't help my ulcer much.

I have seen on this page that there are so many unhappy employes. I know not knowing what is going on is getting under peoples skin. But complaining is not going to make the process any easier. If you are so unhappy with the company you just need to go find another job that you think would treat you better. Or the way you think you should be treated. Cuz from seeing some of what the employes put up on here are saying no matter where you go you would still be unhappy and complain there too. So do the right thing. Cuz complaining is just not doing you any good. Because the Bible does say the you should do unto others as you would have others do to you.

It's when you get chastised for some procedure that has "changed" and you weren't told about it. There are no jobs out there depending what state you're in. Most of the workers are not the age that companies want to hire. We don't know if they do sell the company that we'll have a job later on. Hope the new company is reading this and sees there is so much complaining about management. The worker bees will be the ones that get kicked out first.

To the customer who heard that no Florida stores were closing - There may have been a misunderstanding. No Florida stores have been closed yet. There are a lot of rumors flying around, but I don't think anyone knows anything definite. I know it is frustrating. At least we're open today.

A big thank you for finishing the grey and pink outfit for Spring. Now I can buy the whole set.(It was missing the jacket) Also thanks to Morgan Crossing for going to size 20. Larger ladies need larger sizes. We've lost business because of not offering plus sizes and adding the size 20 will help. Also need to take note of styles that the Bon Worth lines carries. This is what the ladies who shop with us like.

I agree some of these managers need to be cut down on their hours. the one we have shes so F**** lazy and she is the only one getting 40 hrs a wk. she does not so anything can't even strip clothes. we dont even have toliet paper or soap in our bathroom. Her way to communicate with you is by leaving notes on the cashwrap which i think its so unprofessional. Now that we are closing she is implementing rules and regulations that she does not follow. The biggest con is her open door policy, literally open door!

Im sorry your manager is that way I had a very good manager where I worked. she also left notes for us near cash rap, however she explained to us too. As for getting toilet paper and soap, if you see its needed pick it up get some and they repay you. No big deal, most of the stores are small enough to do that. It really doesnt pay to complain at this point. Just do your job thats all you can do, remain politle to customers, its not their fault whats going on and most of all do not complain to your customers about your work environment or job. You dont know what they are going through themselves. And with all due respect if you had a manger like that this long why are you still there. stay professsional.. and if you cant leave

The potential buyer is Pure Elements Clothing Co. that makes Morgan Crossing. Next week the regional mngrs. are talking with them about the "Fall Line". All the other Bon Worth designers have been fired. If someone purchases us it does not mean they will be keeping Bon Worth style clothing. They may not want any of us and hire new people. Nothing is certain, except we're getting the shaft and it's no surprise. Go find another job, they don't care about us, why should we care about them.

Some items in the Spring line don't have the matching jacket or top. It's like you didn't finish the outfit. Picture online shows the top or jacket on the model but not available to order. Please finish the outfits!

Hey I know how Bon Worth can save some money.Demote the Regional and Area managers to store managers, they're not auditing or out intimidating employees anymore. Then you can get rid of the "co-managers"(assistant managers)and make them 3rd. key and not pay anything to insurance. That'll cut down on payroll too since 3rd. keys can't work more than 30 hours.........Think about it BON WORTH...
>>> MGR, Hendersonville NC 4/1/2014 7:23:41 PM
this is to the poster who had some interesting ideas to SAVE money. For your info, audits are still being done. Insurance would still have to be offered to any employee working more then 29 hrs. Managers are required to work 40hrs, so no money would be saved. Not all co-managers are insured by BonWorth. Some choose not to be. Who do you suggest should oversee that the stores are following the policies and operating the stores correctly? It sounds like you have a bad relationship with your area manager. Sorry to hear that. Intimidation is not the purpose of the area and regional mamagers. Area managers are also store managers, doing 2 jobs for one salary. Have any other bright ideas?

Big meeting scheduled for next week with the potential buyers. To clarify a recent post. Its not Morgan Crossing. Morgan Crossing is a brand name of a line of clothing the potential buyers make for Bonworth. Also to another poster: you can find the paper needed for your report printer online at staples and have it delivered. As far as getting a Thank-You from Corp when your store closes, it never happens. Employee praise is something I hope the potential buyers will change in the future. A thank you or job well done goes a long way. So do raises and bonuses.

To Bon Worth corp, you need to be honest with your employees.

I dont know if you are giving employees time to look for a job before you decide to close but that would be unfair if you do not. take into consideration that we are still here working in a limble just waiting when we could be looking. also consider that we problably do not look reason being is that we love our job. i am very concerned on the out come so if you have any news let us know so we can make accomadiations. i know that corp might not have any consideration but on the high note know that your employees do.

To BonWorth: I have been wearing your LeChute pants for years and will be very upset if I cannot buy them anymore. When I contracted Shingles, they were the only pants I could wear because they were soft and airy. The Shingles left me with lingering neuralgia and I have continued to wear nothing but LuChute pants. The LeChute pants are also great for hot flashes. As Baby Boomers mature, there will be an increasing market for your clothing. If you cannot continue with the stores, please continue the website. I attended the Customer Appreciate Day on Saturday and bought 12 pairs of pants in case I can't get them anymore. I would be willing to pay a higher price for LeChute if that's what it takes to have it available.

The only California Bon Worth store, in the Viejas Outlet Mall in Alpine near San Diego, closed yesterday. I had no idea stores were closing until an employee called to tell me yesterday was customer appreciation day and the store would be closed immediately afterward. Words cannot express how shocked and sad I am about this. I first stumbled upon Bon Worth about 5 years ago and have been a loyal customer ever since. I absolutely LOVE the clothes, have a closet full of them, and have told all my friends about them. I have never found any other clothes that provided such fit, comfort, style, quality, and value for women my age (50-something). The sales ladies at the San Diego store were always wonderful, particularly Bernice. I am willing to drive to Arizona just to continue shopping at Bon Worth.

When a parent receive a call saying that you're needed that you have a son or who ever the family member might be you should be able to leave with nothing else to do , didn't miss understand that the 3 calls would have to be made to corporate, So that is when my heart felt God telling me it was time to quit , I'm even feeling better since I've quit , don't have that dread feeling about going to work there, if you like working there I'm happy for you but I didn't , LIKED MACY'S BETTER

Instead of bad mouthing the company if you are a employee, just quit and move on! No reason to stir up drama! I am sure you have had other jobs and will find another one! Some of us, including myself are also concerned about what will happen, but we are going to see it through till the end, no matter what the outcome! If we do get a new buyer, I don't think if I was them I would want to keep employees on who felt this way and continued to bad mouth the company! Bon worth had done nothing bad to me, in fact, it pays my bills! You should be thankful you have a job!

The stores that are closing have been notified. Just wish we all had a list so we could inform our (traveling) customers as to which ones they are. So many have closed since Dec 2013 that it is hard at times to keep track for our customers. The BonWorth web page seems to be the most updated at this time. We all are hanging by a wing and a prayer these days.

The employees don't know what's going on because Bon worth don't know!! So they can't tell us (the customers) anything!!!

I especially like the Le Chute fabrics that look like a suit when you match top and bottom. They have not been available this year. I am a 74 year old woman who is plump, short, and looks best in the longer tops I have found in Bon Worth. I am very unhappy to find they are closing since I haven't found another store which has the looser styles, but tend to be stylish. The two or three people who have waited on me go well beyond the average store attendants in their helpfulness, and knowledge of their products. Please reconsider closing the stores!

I am the husband of a long time customer of Bonworth. It seems that Bonworth has been a great place for my wife to buy all different types of clothing , as she is a small petite woman. There has never been a time that she would come home without a smile on her face. I have met and known the employees of this store as well. They are the nicest , most personable individuals that I have ever seem or met in a retail enviornment . They are so sorry that they will not see their customers anymore. As well as losing their income. The people that I know have worked 6 to 10 years plus. Some will retire others will be looking for a job in a terrible job market. They are worried . ****** Everyone loses in the closing of these stores. If this corporation is profitable please look for a buyer who will takeover and go beyond what the present management has or is doing. It's OK to not want to be there or own but see the other side of the coin. Your EMPLOYEES and your LOYAL CUSTOMER BASE .

Heard through the grapevine that at least 10 more stores to close. Last day open will be on March 22. That's the customer appreciation day for all the stores. Sure isn't an employee appreciation day. Told the stores will be notified about 2wks before they close. I guess the best thing to do is call you favorite stores before you go there to shop.While I do worry about where to shop for my sizes and styles I like, my heart goes out to all the wonderful girls I have met in the stores over the years. It has always been a pleasure. Thank-you.

Am reading the comments and am amazed that very very few have expressed concern for the soon to be out of work employees--they are just worried where they will buy their next pair of pants!!!! From what I have seen, there are few employees at the store level that are say.. under age 50, if not under age 60. Where do you think they will get a job at their age? And don't think that employers don't discriminate against age... they take one look at your face.... To add with that, the computer system at the store level in ancient. No internet access, spread sheets, accounting sheets etc. so no current computer skills. You could have had them in the past, but while working for BonWorth you have currently lost them... unless you want to pay and take a class. I love my job and customers--and yes no commission (they're shold have been at least some token commission paid) and hate to see them close, but only time will tell.

I don't agree with you about internet access almost everyone has cell phone, so your computer skills are not lost and every company has their own software system. I do agree with you about the age and if you have a lot of years at Bonworth it is like a divorce it hurts and nothing to show for it.

I disagree with a lot of the comments. I have been shopping at Bon Worth in Gonzales, La,for over 23 years,but mostly in Gulfport, Miss. The people working there are extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. I used to buy nothing but Alfred Dunner and these compare to Bon Worth. There is hardly a time I go anywhere and wear something from Bon Worth that I am asked where I got the garments and how wonderful they look and they can't believe the price. Some people don't have anything to say unless it is negative. Get a life and think of all of the great people who will be out of a job in this pitiful economy.

I've shopped Bon Worth nationwide for many years. The LeChute slacks are the best ever and consistently sized. Very sad to see what appears on the horizon. That being said, I can only hope there is a buyer looking seriously at Bon Worth. A new owner(s) with aspirations of retaining the company as it is with perhaps some tweeking here and there would be wonderful for employees and customers. It could be a win-win for all. So, Mr. Wells, please sell the company instead of closing it down. Let Bon Worth live. I love my Olathe, KS Bon Worth store. Beth and Shirley are great and always have been. Clothes are very important to a woman. Where she buys them is where she is comfortable with fit, style, selection and price. The ladies who shop Bon Worth found their comfort zone in the world of shopping and have been faithful and loyal customers for many years. Mergers and acquisitions happen every day. Nothing new there. Someone please step up to the plate and buy this company. PLEASE !!!!

Being a Queen is a job requirement. Management must supervise many employees who need guidance and support to run their stores correctly. The management are held at a higher level of responsibility by Corp office. You have no idea what they have to put up with. Its understood that not all employees see management on the same level as them. Its because they aren't. We all have someone higher to answer to.

Any way I was upset at first but you know what the right doors will open when it's time,hopefully for all of us involved.

The online store is limited on the Fall 2013 items. You have until March 10th to order those items. But the online store has all the new Spring/Summer items for purchase now. So disregard the other post please. Your best bet is to visit one of the local stores for a better choice. Many of them have a very large inventory of the 2013 fall items at great prices (up to 70% off). Hope this clears up a few questions for you.

The store I usually shop in has been closed a year almost. I found a new store that I love every worker in it. They are so helpful to us every time we go. The one little gal is elderly and she goes so far out of her way to please my mom and myself. The store manager will be missed with such sorrow. She makes us girls so happy and even gave my husband what she calls a husbands chair and a bag of cookies to keep him quiet so I can shop. He had so much fun that day he wants to go all the time now. Great hospitality. They have another women there who loves people. She can talk all day and sell them the moon. I recently learned those employees do not make commission.can you believe that this store does this all from their heart. We are going to miss you gals at BW. I hope you share with us where you are all going. God bless them. I hope your finances will hold up. Mr. Bon Worth, thank you for all the years of clothing. Your intelligence made us all happy.

First of all, I'd like to thank the owner of Bon Worth for his/her foresight. It's been a joy to shop the stores. Style and Fit at a reasonable price for mature women is sooo hard to come by. I have never had a bad experience with sales staff. They may be a little preoccupied these days but who can blame them. My friends and I have to travel to Clearwater and points north and south to shop the stores since there are none in Tampa (who knows why). I hope a solution can be found to closing the stores.

Bon Worth is about the only store where I can find clothes that fit. My Mother and I both shopped almost exclusively in these stores. Customer service was outstanding and the products are some of the best. It is a store worth saving.

I hope the corp office and owner is aware of this forum and what others are saying. Some stores have closed, but I think the online store is still open. The remaining stores will be having a Customer Appreciation Day Sale on SAT March 22,2014. Extra 20% off your total sale. I got a flyer stating this last week. Should make for some awesome prices. Gonna stock up.

Just learned today of all Bon Worth stores in Fl to be closing! Everything I wear is Bon Worth,no other store has the quality for price nor styles for us over 50. I am extremely distraught and can not find out when or why this is happening other than no one has bought the company..WE NEED Bon Worth. Help!

I just heard this morning that Bon Worth has closed its stores. I am so very upset, because I cannot find any other place in town that sells quality clothing that I can wear for the excellent prices!!! I'll have to resort to wearing what I have until they are rags, I guess.

The clothes are wonderful, wear forever and I have sent many friends to the Bon Worth in Tuscola IL. I am so disappointed in this decision. I hope the store doesn't close near us.

I had such a good shopping experience today at the Ocala, FL store where clerk Glynnis was so helpful & kind. Was very sorry & sad to hear of Bon Worth's imminent complete closing and going out of business. It is the signs of our times with so many companies loss of business that they are no longer able to maintain that business. Only the biggies like Walmart can sustain themselves in these troublesome times. And I am not knocking Walmart, just stating a fact. I wish that the corporate ofc. could see clear to letting the remaining stores know when to expect their closing and also show respect to their employees as to what is up. I'm sure that the faithful, hardworking employees deserve that much. Or am I being too naive? Good luck to all of those hard workers!

Hi ya all, It is great to know there are some people who really care about others. As I am reading the post, I would like to encourage all the positive people commenting on here to go to this link. I started this beginning of Feb, when I got better info from my Area Manager, who is a delightful Area Manager. Please twitter this link, FB, email for signatures. Asking it be sent to the NC Gov. Pat McCrory to stop the closing of the other stores. We have to take a different action to have a different change, even those who have a bad attitude here need to change to have a better change occur for them too. I know that those that have a heart will get this petition where it needs to get signed. Permission is granted for anyone to copy the petition and get signature in the store. We have 250 so far. http://www.change.org/petitions/everyone-keep-bonworth-inc-doors-open Anyone who wishes to contact me, can do so at my store. The true employees/managers will know how to do so.

I have read so many negitive responces here and it is so uncalled for.An owner or owners of a company has every right to do as they see fit. Bon Worth has been around for many years. Through those years, employees and customers have come and gone. Others have closed, and we all survived.We haven't gotten raises in 5 or so years, but stayed on because we like the company and the customers.Life will continue. We just have to find a diffrent avenue to work and shop.We all need to think about the owner and give him our support and prayers.Remember the old saying 'don't judge anyoneuntil you walk a mile in their shoes'? I am very thankful for BonWorth, as I have met alot of very nice customers and fellow employees. Alot of good memories.A new chapter in all our lives is about to open, so lets be thankful and grateful for jobs and a great place to shop for nice clothing.Complaining will only make sadness and wrinkles. May God help us all.

Lois, manager, KY store Manager and employees 2/9/2014 3:51:47 PM
I have been a manager at my store for 20 year's this June. I LOVE this company. Best company I've worked for, and I have worked at several. I am really heart broken of the closing. It has been a company that has LOVED their employees and staff. Many at home office are heart broken. They loved their jobs, are they wouldn't have been there for so many years, and almost all have been there as long and longer than I have. I have grown very personally to all of them. Mr. Bill and Mr. Loren and Noreen and all the staff are understanding, loving and concerned about your problems and ours. and help in any way they can. I dearly Love my area, and regional managers. Couldn't asked for any better managers. My customers are heart broken also, they are my family. All that has been said on here is just people that just don't have respect for their job or company. They just don't know what good is, let them work for a company that's looking over their back at all times, and they will feel differently. I've been there and hated it. I wish someone would buy the company out so we could stay open for our customers sake an ours also. There isn't any stores like Bon Worth around to shop at. If you can't say anything good about anything, why say anything at all? Pray for our company and our customers, that it may stay open, and for the people that work there that so Love it. May God Bless everyone that this company has touched. Love to all

The people at corporate have been wonderful for the most part and like any employer, we think they could have done some things better. My heart aches for all the employee's who will become unemployed and have to find other jobs. I do wish they would let each of the stores know when they are closing so we can plan our lives accordingly. BonWorth will be greatly missed by employee's and our loyal customers.

We all realize how times have changed, but the true customers of Bon Worth are being hurt. They will have no place they can rely on for good fitting clothes, where husbands even enjoy shopping in the stores. Since some of the new lines have come in, it does not have the same quality once known as Bon Worth. We hope they will reconsider other options

Having poured in so much money for the computer upgrades, Morgan Crossing like and style updates this past year, it's more likely to be that he is either going bankrupt, or has health issues. My guess is the second one, he's not young and the company has been for sale for a while now. They should have brought in someone to restructure the corporate headquarters and made the whole thing a public company years ago, perhaps then we would have had a chance. It's been a leaking ship for a while now. As an employee I speak from experience. Also, I sympathize with the people who have poor managers and district managers... Mine are horrid and even the regional didn't care when I tried talking to her. When I first tried addressing my issues with the district manager she made many promises of helping the situations but nothing ever came of it, instead my manager just became more abusive to me. It also made me sad how many racist people are employed here and unpunished for it. They even speak to the customers about it, and who are apparently of the same mind! I thought in this day and age we would be past all of that. I love and have been a part of this company for many many years now, as an employee and customer, and am loathe to see it treated so poorly by the people who are hired to take care of and manage it. Everyone is correct, this whole closing business is being handled quite poorly. To the person who said that what we post is being watched, I hope that it is. Perhaps Mr. Wells will finally see what his employees really think and how hurt we are. I have a feeling that by trusting what the district and regional managers tell him about employee situations and morale is a good deal different than the truth. It breaks my heart to see it all go down this way.

I wholeheartedly agree with what you are saying. I have only worked for Bon Worth for a year and LOVE my job and the people I work with. I like my manager as a person but her management style leaves MUCH to be desired. The web says: "Bon Worth is an American retail clothing chain which manufactures its own clothing from a plant in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Founder Loren Wells started Bon Worth in 1976 in Hendersonville, and expanded throughout the 1980s." This is NOT true. Most of the clothes are made in China, Indonesia, Viet Nam and some countries I have never even heard of. I think that is why it is in such bad shape now.

Bon Worth's web page is still there. Logically, they should close the small, unprofitable stores and leave the profitmaking stores open, but only time will tell. The clothes are not what they were a few years ago. It seems they are catering to the retired grandma's. Too many middle age - early retirement people come in and are buying for grandma in the nursing home and won't even think of anything for themselves. Too old looking. Too bad. Considering employees are suppose to wear BonWorth clothing... must make the younger employees feel just wonderful :(. Only time will tell...

As for the merchandise, most of it was outsourced and not the quality you remember. I'm glad to see karma coming for them.

I've been shopping at Bon Worth for several years. The clothes are reasonably priced and always a good fit. And not designed for the teeny-boppers. I too am not happy about the closings, but can't help wonder about the reasoning behind the decision. Many companies / offices are closing their doors because of the current political administration's policies. I also understand that all Bon Worth clothing is made in the USA. What a shame to be losing another AMERICAN manufacturer! However, the powers that be should let us know, especially the employees, when this closing will take place, and if they can, tell us exactly why. It would be interesting to know the reason.
>>> Anonymous 2/1/2014 10:20:04 PM
The clothes haven't been made in the USA for several years, unless its the brands like Erin London that they sell. As for it being politically based I doubt that.... They eliminated all Asst. Manager positions this January to avoid having to pay for the insurance.

I have really tried to stay out of this. BonWorth is a good company. Maybe the employees who are complaining should take a step back and look at themselves before critizing another. No one knows the specifics of why they are closing, But they are not the only company doing so. There are many different factors that weigh into this. Most of the employees that work there are the best they can be. Treat customers like family, stores are clean, I am sad to see them go. I will miss them because I basically grew up with this company. Before blasting someone or complaining about something. Think of others that are reading it and try to be posiitve, Maybe some of the reason is the negativity that you show on here was reflected in your work and maybe that was why you did not get a raise.

Just returned from the store in Matawan. I wanted a simple cotton long sleeved shirt. Every shirt had some kind of picture or design on it or was a sweat shirt. It was an annoying waste of time. Do you no longer make PLAIN shirts? Why do you sell scarfs? They dress up a shirt.

I was just in Williamsburg VA and was told the store in the Outlet mall would be closing. I am very disappointed, because I love the store. They should reopen.

I am so dissappointed to learn that Bon Worth in Williamsburg is closing at the end of the year. For years, I have traveled for 2 1/2 hours each way to shop at Bon Worth. It is the only place I can find slacks, tops and skirts to fit me. I am petite. Please, Please leave the store in Williamsburg, Virginia. What are we to do as we age and cannot drive out of state? Please consider this request

I was just at your store in the Logan Valley Mall, Altoona PA. Was told they are closing Dec 14, 2013. I understand price of renting space, but I sure hope you are looking for another space in Altoona to rent. My husband likes to shop there for me and I really like the sizes (Petite). Of course you could always come to Huntingdon, we are always looking for great stores to come into the area.

I can see that I'm not the only one very disappointed in the absence now of the petite pants. they are much too long to be called petite. The salesclerk today told me she has gotten nothing but complaints over this issue. I hope someone from this company is reading these comments ..

I am so very upset that 1st you pulled the only store we had in our area out of the McKinley Mall location. 2nd you stopped offering plus sizes. Now all I can order online are your pants - you lost a customer that spent hundreds with you. What a shame for me and YOU!

I have worn your Lechute pants for years and now that I am retired all the time. I have the purple pants and jacket as well as the green pants and jacket. Now you no longer make the jackets and I can't find a new pair of PURPLE pants anywhere. I drive an hour to find a store and then no PUPLE pants. Please bring them back.

The regular pants, that I have worn for years, are so long that I am now buying the petite size. The tops on the other hand are shorter.!!!

I wish you still sold plus size clothing. What a disappointment to loose the very nice clothes.

I have always bought my clothing at Bon Worth. Today when I went to your store, I found out that your petite pants are no longer petites. Unfortunately, they are now made about three inches longer that before and I can no longer shop at your store. Very dissapointing.

I was sadly disappointed when the Bon Worth stores in my area...Omaha, Council Bluffs and Gretna..all closed. It is very difficult for the "mature woman" to find something to wear that is made well and fits. A new mall is opening in Gretna off of I-80 and it would be wonderful if Bon Worth could return. There is a huge market out there...if only we had the stores!

I was very disappointed that your store at the Markland Mall in Kokomo, IN has been closed. Now if I want to shop in one of your stores I have to drive Marion, IN.!!!!

I'm very disappointed that you closed the only store in CO. The closest store to me now is 585 miles. I don't like shopping on the internet. You're not making it easy to shop at my favorite store! Plese bring Bon Worth back to CO. Colorado Springs or Denver would work well.

I live in Vero Beach, FL and would love to visit a Bon Worth store. Are they any near here? A friend gave me a beautiful embroidered T-Shirt but don't know where it was originally purchased either. Thanks for your help.

I was told you would have a on line catalog by September 2008. I can't find it.

I am SO disappointed that I can't shop on-line! I live in the Los Angeles area and the closest Bon Worth is at least 3 hours away. There are lots of outlet malls much closer than Alpine or Las Vegas. Please have both an on-line store and some retail outlets in more California Malls. I love your clothes!

I love Bon Worth. It's a wonderful store and the quality of merchandise is perfect. I wish you would consider opening a store in Champaign, IL. and also McAllen, TX. With the population of Champaign, I think it would go over very well. We have a wonderful mall called Market Place. Also, in McAllen, TX. there are thousands of retired people who go to the Rio Grand Valley area in the winter and it would go over big in that area. Please consider it.

I WILL NEVER SHOP ANYWHERE ELSE. THIS IS THE ONLY STORE THAT HAS MY SIZE. THE NEAREST STORE IS ABOUT ONE HOUR AWAY BUT IT IS WORTH THE DRIVE.

I always pick up a few things at the Tanger Outlet store when vacationing in the Ft. Myers area. The clothes are very similar to the Alfred Dunner brand but much less expensive. We sure could use a store in the south county area of St. Louis. St. Louis Mills is way too far to drive at these gas prices. Also...can't understand why there is no way to order on line. You're really missing out there and so are your customers! I

Just a note: Three years ago while celebrating our 50th class reunion in Laughlin, we happened on your store. We each bought clothes, and returned again the next day and bought more. Today, as I was doing laundry, I thought I would try again to see if you had somewhere close where I could view and buy your clothes. I absolutely love them as do my friends who bought clothes when I did. I would visit any place again just to buy my clothes there. And I might add the girls who helped us out were wonderful. They made us feel like we had been their friends for ever. Thanks again and sorry it has taken so long to relate this message. I just never thought about pulling you up on a website, because we were told there was not a catalog available. Thanks again.

In shopping at Bon Worth's in Brooksville Florida I was impressed with the quality of clothing at this store. It is the same at every Bon Worth's store no matter where you go. My wife is always pleased with the products and always looks forward to shopping there.

I just shopped at Bonworth for the first time ever at the South Mall in Allentown,PA. I bought 7 tops,1 3 piece outfit,and a pair of slacks. What a great shop. The clerk,Tammy, was so helpful and pleasant. What a difference from most stores today where the clerks cannot be bothered to find something for you. I wish we had one in Bethlehem. I would be there every week!! I am retired and actually found clothing that was not for teens but refined adults. The quality looks great and the selection was terrific. I wish they would add plus sizes to their line so I could get many of my friends to shop there. I found their sizes run a little bigger so instead of plus I was able to take lg. or x-lg in everything. I even got a jacket in a medium.It is a good idea to try everything on to be sure of the sizes. Please open one in Bethlehem. we have a small strip mall near us with the perfect vacant store to rent! That would make my day!!

I was just introduced to Bon Worth one day ago. Was hoping to look at a catalog or on-line selection, but it seems there is no catalog! The clothes I saw were so pretty. I hope to find a selection soon.
