Lachen/לכן is the plural female 'you' in Hebrew. The phrase "תודה רבה לכן, לילה טוב" translates to "Thank you very much, good night."
See, לכן is plural, so the speaker is addressing multiple women. If we look again at the English translation, the 'you' in "Thank you" is a plural you.
If you're interested, you can look into the etymology and historical usage of the word 'you', and how its usage was strictly plural. Understanding that, this sentence and its translation are much more easily understood.
