The retail store closings continue, but JCPenney will keep it’s Mid-Missouri locations open. Our new partner ABC17 KMIZ reports the Columbia and Jefferson City locations avoided the list of 130-140 locations on the chopping block.
Though the closures will not affect our Mid-Missouri community, about 5,000 jobs will be lost across the country. In a press release from JCPenney, they will be trying to find relocation and outplacement support services.
Other stores will likely be liquidated on April 17th.
