LSL Brands founder takes up Doylestown Bon-Ton challenge


Karen Thompson, a Bucks County native and president and founder of LSL Brands, has taken up the challenge of filling the empty Bon-Ton Department Store in Doylestown.

Thompson and her family had shopped the Bon-Ton for years. It was was part of her family history and it was for so many in the community, she said. A successful entrepreneur and retailer, with Lace Silhouettes and Signatures stores in Lahaska and Cape May, Thompson is reinventing the Doylestown department store and employing former Bon-Ton employees.

Thompson and her LSL Brands team have created a multi-generational shopping experience. Fox & Holly Bucks County - Him. Her. Home will be opening as a three-month-long holiday pop-up store Nov. 1. The store will feature familiar brands alongside brand additions presented in a socially engaging atmosphere.

“Retail and special events will give guests reasons to visit again and again,” Thompson said.

Renovations are planned through the winter with a permanent store scheduled to open next spring.

“We are all a part of its success”, said Thompson. “We are asking the community to name the permanent store.” Name our store entries will be accepted on the Fox & Holly Bucks County Facebook and Instagram pages and in the store.
