Closing of JCPenney store delayed

SHERIDAN — After JCPenney announced it would close 138 stores this year, customers responded by showing up to shop at the local retailers.

As a result, the company has postponed plans to close the stores.

“This is not an uncommon response when you announce a store closure,” company spokeswoman Daphne Avila told CNBC recently. “Local shoppers will come out for a variety of reasons — some out of nostalgia and some who are just looking for a great deal.”

As a result, JCPenney will start liquidating the stores in May instead of April as planned. The stores will close by the end of July, instead of mid-June.
