Mike Nemoir, a men’s wear fixture at The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. and its predecessor companies for more than four decades, will retire on March 28.
The senior vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s and home has been with the company for 45 years, starting his career in the Milwaukee offices of the Boston Store on Sept. 9, 1968 as a trainee assistant buyer after graduating from Marquette University. Over the course of his career, Nemoir has been sales area manager, buyer, divisional sales manager and divisional merchandise manager; he was named gmm in 1995. Over the years, the company has gone through six ownership and name changes but Nemoir said that despite all the “acquisitions, sales and purges, I’ve survived and never left the building.” Over the years, the business has also operated under the names PA Bergner, Carson Pirie Scott, Proffitt’s, Saks Inc. and then Bon-Ton, which acquired the company in 2006.
