Chappell's was a family-owned department store chain based in Syracuse, New York. It opened in 1896 and remained in business until 1994. At its peak, it operated ten stores in the Syracuse area, Watertown and Massena.
In January 1992, the corporation filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11. As part of reorganization, four of the stores closed. Under pressure from creditors, chairman Charles A. Chappell, Jr., grandson of the founder, sold the company and remaining six stores to Bon-Ton Stores in October 1994.
