How many JCPenney stores are left?

Post last updated August 30, 2020.

  • According to JCPenney’s official website, there are “approximately 850” remaining locations, but the company announced a list of 154 stores closing on June 6, 2020 in the wake of their Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in May 2020. (This was revised and is now 152 stores).
  • On June 23, 2020, it was announced another 13 stores will close.
  • On July 7, 2020, it was announced two New York stores will close, one already permanently.
  • On July 10, 2020, local press in the Pittsburgh area reported that the Monroeville, PA and Monaca, PA that were originally slated to close are now going to remain open.
  • On July 14, 2020, it was reported three Louisiana locations slated to close are now staying open: Lafayette’s Acadiana Mall location, Metairie, and Shreveport.
  • On August 5, 2020, it was announced the iconic Century III Mall location in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania would be closing.
  • On August 7, 2020, it was announced the Bay Shore, New York store would no longer be closing. That makes our estimate of the soon to be total of remaining stores number to be 682.
  • Around mid-August, 2020, two separate readers noted stores that were originally slated to close that were taken off the list: Elkhart, Indiana and San Bernadino, California bringing our number to 684.
