JC Penney will close more than 150 stores in the U.S. this upcoming summer as it files for bankruptcy and deals with rumors of an Amazon buyout.

What’s going on:

  • In mid-May, JC Penney announced it will close down more than 240 locations. The company said it would close 29% of its 846 stores, which included 242 total spots.
  • The stores will close between this current fiscal year and next fiscal year.
  • Original projections suggested 192 stores would close in 2020 with the rest coming next year.
  • Per USA Today, J.C. Penney decided to file for bankruptcy “after several years of declining sales and strategic missteps as J.C. Penney careened from one reinvention strategy to another.”

Which stores will close?

  • On Friday, June 4, JC Penney released its full list of stores closing down this upcoming fiscal year. A total of 154 stores will shut their doors.
