JC Penney stores closing in Alabama

Macy's and Sears - both competitors of J.C. Penney - also announced significant closures within the last 18 months.

The J.C. Penney store, located within the Summit Square shopping plaza in Calcutta, will remain open.

JCPenney stores at the Wyoming Valley and Viewmont malls will not be among the 138 closed by the national retailer, according to a list released by the company Friday. "We believe that closing the interior mall is a necessary step in order to revitalize the property and make it a viable part of the community going forward". "We're going to be adding a home department and things of that nature".

The closings don't include the JCPenney Museum and Mother Store in Kemmerer and other locations around Wyoming. In addition, the doors will remain open at J.C. Penney sites in Boardman, the Wheeling area, and Robinson Township, Pa.
