J.C. Penney to close 154 stores, including two in Idaho
J.C. Penney will be closing 154 stores as part of its bankruptcy proceedings, including one in Lewiston and another in Ponderay.
MarketWatch.com reports that, starting June 11, the retail store will begin closing stores to focus on the stores drawing in the most sales, and their website.
According to MarketWatch’s list, no stores in Washington will be closing, but Idaho will lose two—the one in the Lewiston Shopping Center, and the one in the Bonner Mall in Ponderay.
This first round of closures is expected to take around 10-16 weeks, according to J.C. Penney.
