Feil Organization Acquires Former Carson’s Space at North Riverside Park Mall

The Feil Organization, a New York City-based real estate investment firm and owner and operator of North Riverside Park Mall, has purchased the two-story, 180,588-square-foot Carson’s store. The acquisition includes the 11.55-acre parcel. Financial terms weren’t disclosed. 

In 2018, Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and liquidated all 256 of its Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Younkers and Carson’s stores. 

“We are thrilled to finally have ownership of this parcel,” said Jeffrey Feil, CEO of The Feil Organization.  “Owning this site supports our ongoing focus to enhance the value of North Riverside Park Mall for the community, strengthens our engagement with the Village of North Riverside and reaffirms the Feil Organization’s commitment to elevate the shopping center. We are in the process of finalizing re-development plans, and acquiring this site is an important step toward fulfilling our long-term vision.”
