JC Penney stores closing in Alabama

J.C. Penney has announced that its store in the Berkshire Mall will close June 18, an employee told The Eagle on Friday.

Other locations in North Dakota are on the list.

While a financial-rating company recently said the Park City store was among those likely to close, the J.C. Penney in Lancaster wound up surviving.

The company released more details on the closures as well as a complete list of stores nationwide that are closing. In January, Sears announced it was closing its Uniontown store this spring, one of 150 it is closing nationwide. Liquidation is to begin April 17, the company said in a news release. JC Penney is in the process of identifying relocation opportunities within the company for leaders, according to the company. The store was previously downtown before relocating to the mall when it opened in the mid-1980s.

"We believe the relevance of our brick and mortar portfolio will be driven by the implementation of these initiatives consistently to a larger percent of our stores", said Marvin Ellison, chairman and CEO of J.C. Penney. Two other J.C. Penny stores in Louisiana - in DeRidder and in Baton Rouge's Cortana Mall - are also on the list of stores to be closed. This move will affect about 5,000 to 6,000 employees.
