Carson's to Lay Off Over 1,800 Workers Across the Area

Over 1,800 workers will be laid off across the area

With the chain closing stores due to bankruptcy, hundreds of Carson’s employees across the city and suburbs will be out of work in a matter of weeks.    

According to a report issued by the state, more than 1,800 workers at 10 Chicago-area stores will lose their jobs beginning next month.

The company’s location at Orland Square will lay-off a total of 311 workers, making it the hardest hit location in the area according to the state.

“It is very hard taking advantage of the deals because you know now that all the workers lose their jobs,” shopper Jill Patrianakos said. “Now I feel even worse because I’m spending money in a company that can’t even support their own workers. It’s hard.”

Carson’s locations across the country will shut their doors after bankruptcy litigation. NBC 5’s Michelle Relerford reports.

Here is the full list of anticipated lay-offs at the area Carson’s and Bon-Ton locations:

Chicago Ridge Mall: 207

Evergreen Park: 134

Ford City Mall: 115

Lincolnwood: 135

Lombard: 220

Mount Prospect: 192

Naperville (Bon-Ton): 61

Norridge: 214

North Riverside: 159

Orland Square: 311

Wilmette: 142

Lay-offs will begin at the impacted stores on June 5, according to the state.
