J.C. Penney will close its Huntington Plaza store in Huntington among 130-140 that it will shutter over the next few months.
The company announced plans for the closures Feb. 24 because of stiff competition from online retailers. It offered voluntary early retirement to about 6,000 eligible employees, according to Marvin R. Ellison, chairman and chief executive officer of JCPenney, in a news release.
JCPenney will close a distribution center in Lakeland, Fla., in early June, and transfer those operations to its logistics facility in Atlanta. The company also is selling its supply chain facility in Buena Park, Calif.
