JCPenney to close 154 stores

It appears the JCPenney stores in Lima and Bellefontaine will survive the next round of closures for the chain.

JCPenney to close 154 stores

The company did not specifically list which stores were staying open, but the company did release its list of the first 154 stores to be closed as a result of its bankruptcy filing. It shows JCPenney closing nine stores in Ohio, including the ones in the Northtowne Mall in Defiance and the location in the Miami Valley Mall in Piqua. The department store chain had previously closed nearby locations in the Findlay Village Mall and in St. Marys.
