In a bankruptcy court filing on Thursday, JCPenney revealed the list of stores that will shutter in its first round of closures.

The department store, which filed for bankruptcy on May 15, said in a document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission later that month that it expected to eventually close about 30% of its 846 stores, moving away from weaker malls.

The first phase consists of 154 stores, which JCPenney said will conduct liquidation sales after they are approved by the court and as they are able to reopen according to states’ stay-at-home orders. Four of the stores have already begun going-out-of-business sales.

The company said in its filing that liquidation sales will take about 10-16 weeks to complete, at which point stores would close for good.

JCPenney has had years of declining sales, which were exacerbated by temporary store closures during the coronavirus pandemic. It has since reopened about 500 stores.

“While closing stores is always an extremely difficult decision, our store optimisation strategy is vital to ensuring we emerge from both Chapter 11 and the COVID-19 pandemic as a stronger retailer with greater financial flexibility to allow us to continue serving our loyal customers for decades to come,” CEO Jill Soltau said in a statement.

“I am incredibly grateful to our talented associates for their ongoing dedication and their passion for meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations during this difficult and uncertain time. All impacted associates will be treated with the utmost consideration and respect.”
