Seasonality The company’s business, like that of most retailers, is subject to seasonal fluctuations, with the major portion of sales and income realized during the second half of each year (year end February 1, 2014), which includes the holiday season. Due to the fixed nature of certain costs, the company’s selling, general and administrative expenses are typically higher as a percentage of net sales during the first half of each year. Competition The company faces competition for customers from traditional department store operators, such as Boscov's Department Store LLC, Dillard's, Inc., Macy's, Inc. and Von Maur Inc.; national chain retailers, such as J.C. Penney Company, Inc., Kohl's Corporation, and Sears Holdings Corporation; and mass merchandisers, such as Target Corporation and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. History The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. was founded in 1898.
