J.C. Penny Closing In FDL


The J. C. Penney store in Fond du Lac is one of five in Wisconsin and 33 across the country that the national retailer will be closing because of what is described as underperforming. Other J.C. Penny stores closing in Wisconsin are located in Janesville, Rhinelander, Rice Lake and Wausau. The closings, announced Wednesday as part of turnaround efforts, are expected to result in the elimination of approximately 2,000 positions in 20 states. The company’s press release says the closings will allow J.C. Penney to focus its resources on the highest potential growth opportunities. The actions are expected to result in an annual cost savings of approximately $65 million, beginning in 2014. The retailer has 116,000 staffers, and all the job cuts are related to the store closings. Remaining inventory in the affected stores will be sold over the next several months, with final closings expected to be complete by early May.
