In spite of recently celebrating one hundred and seventeen years of business, the future of struggling department store, JCPenney, is looking a little bleak. Both investors and customers are nervous about the sites that the store can take away to come back from their ever-decreasing sales.
One method that they're attempting is closing stores that are losing the company money overall. And while this may save the brand, it does mean that many will have to wave goodbye to their local JCPenney.
