JCPenney is Closing 138 Stores, is Yours on the List?

Following at the heels of fellow retailers like Macy's, Walmart and Sears, which all recently closed hundreds of brick-and-mortar locations across the country, JCPenney announced it will be closing 138 stores this summer. 

According to a press release put out by the company this morning, "approximately 5,000 positions nationwide will be impacted by the store closures," which is a nice way of saying a lot of people are going to lose their jobs.

“We believe closing stores will also allow us to adjust our business to effectively compete against the growing threat of online retailers," said Marvin R. Ellison, chairman and chief executive officer of JCPenney. "Maintaining a large store base gives us a competitive advantage in the evolving retail landscape since our physical stores are a destination for personalized beauty offerings, a broad array of special sizes, affordable private brands and quality home goods and services. It is essential to retain those locations that present the best expression of the JCPenney brand and function as a seamless extension of the omnichannel experience through online order fulfillment, same-day pick up, exchanges and returns."
