JCPenney slated to close 6 additional stores

Posted: Updated:

Struggling retailer JCPenney is closing more stores.

The company has announced that six additional stores are shutting down.

JCPenney says it will announce more details, including locations, in the coming weeks.

More than 200 JCPenney stores have closed over the last five years amid slumping sales and profits.

As News 12 has reported, there are only three JCPenney stores left on the island, and the store at Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream is closing in April.
