Wednesday was the final day for Younkers stores in Lindale Mall in Cedar Rapids and in Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville.

Bon-Ton Stores, owner of the Younkers brand, announced in April it would begin “an orderly wind-down” of its remaining Younkers stores, including 17 in Iowa.

The Westdale mall store closed earlier this year.

Younkers was founded in Keokuk in 1856.
