J.C. Penney Closings: Retailer Announces Locations Of Shuttered Stores

On Friday, J.C. Penney announced the locations of 138 stores the company plans to close in June.

The closings will span 41 states and displace more than 5,000 workers. The news follows a previously released plan J. C. Penney said would help the company shrink its footprint in order to navigate changes in the retail industry.

Liquidation sales will begin April 17. Some of the workers affected by the closings will be offered transfer opportunities in J.C. Penney’s remaining 900 stores. Others will be offered severance and retirement packages, as well as placement services that include resume building and interview training.

“It became apparent to us that our footprint was too large,” Penney CEO Marvin Ellison said in a statement last month. “The closures will allow us to raise the overall brand standard of J.C. Penney.”

According to Reuters, the closings will come with annual cost savings of about $200 million. However, J.C. Penney would pay current-year pre-tax charges of $225 million before actual savings would be realized.

The company’s website will continue to offer a full line of products.

J.C. Penney now joins a growing list of retailers to close a significant number of stores. In January, Sears and Kmart announced the closings of 150 locations while Macy’s is closing 68 brick-and-mortar stores.

J.C. Penney was founded in 1902 by James Cash Penney, who grew the company into 34 locations by 1912. By the early ’40s, J.C. Penney boasted 1,600 stores nationwide.

Walmart founder Sam Walton began his retail career with J.C. Penney.
