DC region's JC Penney stores escape round of closures

City will survive JC Penney closure

According to CNBC, J.C. Penney Co. announced it's store closings on Friday, which comes just a few weeks after the company said it would close almost 140 stores within the year. The company had about 105,000 full and part-time employees previous year.

After that, J.C. Penney will still list about 900 stores.

Penney will close 4 stores in Iowa - in Decorah, Fort Dodge, Oskaloosa, and Ottumwa.

That class will help employees with writing resumes, filling out applications, answering interview questions and more. IN stores set to close are in Fair Oaks Mall in Columbus, Connersville Plaza, Huntington Plaza, Jasper Manor Center and Logansport Mall. About 5,000 employees will lose their jobs as a result of the closures.

Store close-out sales, the company said, will start in April and the stores will be closed by the middle of June.
