Who is Bon-Ton?

Bon-Ton is a chain of department stores, according to Google. I’m not familiar with them. There are definitely no Bon-Ton stores in the city I live in. I’ve never purchased anything from them, online or in store. Yet, they sent me this email via ESP CheetahMail. I smell an email append; this particular spamtrap seems to get personalized spam where people think this address is some other person, based on a faulty database match of some sort.

I personally will not be accepting any more mail from, except to report it to various blocklist groups.
