As JCPenney plans to shut down 138 stores across the country, the one here in Torrance plans to stay.
The company released the list of stores that will be closed. These stores represent about 14 percent of the company’s locations but account for just 5 percent of its sales. About 5,000 employees will lose their jobs as well.
JCPenney will start liquidation sales in mid-April and the last day of business for the stores on the list will be June.
JCPenney at the Del Amo Fashion Center is located at 21840 S. Hawthorne Blvd.
