J.C. Penney closing these 154 stores first. See if yours is on the list

The retailer, which was struggling before the coronavirus pandemic, announced it was filing for bankruptcy last month and closing more than 240 stores total.

J.C. Penney has released its list of the first 154 stores it will begin closing as part of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing it announced last month. It's the majority of the more than 240 stores the retailer said it expects to close.

The company announced it expects store closing sales to take 10-16 weeks.

“While closing stores is always an extremely difficult decision, our store optimization strategy is vital to ensuring we emerge from both Chapter 11 and the COVID-19 pandemic as a stronger retailer with greater financial flexibility to allow us to continue serving our loyal customers for decades to come,” said J.C. Penney CEO Jill Soltau in a statement.

The Plano, Texas, retailer said last month that it plans to close about 192 stores by February 2021, and then 50 additional stores in the year after that. 

J.C. Penney is the biggest retailer to file for bankruptcy reorganization since the pandemic.
