140 of JC Penny’s retail stores are closing across the nation. There will be a massive loss of jobs, income, and convenient shopping. However, the company is attempting to stay in profit range while competing with other big retail stores, like Macy’s, Khols, Dillards, and Wal-Mart. This will adversely put employees in a position to find new employment in the near future, rather than wait till the big shut down. There is a JC Penny in the Montgomery area that may be at risk of closure in the later half of 2017. The employees may be at the risk of lining up for unemployment. Will this shut down intefere with your shopping routine, or even worse your income?
