JCPenny has put out their list of stores that will be closing, and it looks like Duluth is one of the lucky ones that are going to be staying.

138 JCPenny stores, along with a supply chain facility, are getting the axe as the company tries to "optimize it's national retail operations" as they put it in their initial press release. This morning, the company released the list containing the names of the stores that will be starting the liquidation process on April 17th.

The good news for the people of the Duluth area is that the Duluth store is NOT on that list. The closest store that is closing is the Irongate Plaza location in Hibbing.
