Carson’s bricks-and-mortar stores, including this one at Chicago Ridge Mall, are out of business, but brand has been resurrected online. (Ted Slowik/Pioneer Press) Lauren Zumbach Contact Reporter Chicago Tribune Weeks after going-out-of-business sales ended, Carsons and other chains owned by Bon-Ton Stores are back in business online, at least. Carsons and other Bon-Ton chains e-commerce sites were back online Friday, less than a week after a Delaware bankruptcy court judge approved the sale of the companys intellectual property to Merrillville, Ind.-based CSC Generation. Justin Yoshimura, CEO of Carsons and CSC Generation, said in a statement on Carsons website that the company was sprinting as fast as we can to rebuild the company. In the letter on the Carsons website, Yoshimura wrote that he dropped out of high school because I couldnt wait to start a business that was loved by its customers. So as you can imagine, I was excited by the opportunity to acquire a century old brand that was founded by another high school dropout, John Pirie, he wrote. Yoshimura founded CSC Generation, which also owns membership buying service DirectBuy. On its website, CSC Generation describes itself as a decentralized, multi-brand technology platform that is saving companies from Amazon. The company declined to make additional details on its plans for Carsons and the other Bon-Ton chains available Friday.
