J.C. Penney has announced the locations of 154 stores that will be closing across 38 states as it restructures after filing for bankruptcy in May. The Prescott, Arizona, store is not on the list.

The Texas-based retailer released the list of locations by state on Thursday, June 4, with going-out-business sales expected to begin on June 12 and lasting 10 to 16 weeks.

In Arizona, three locations are listed for closure – in Tucson, El Con Shopping Center; Cottonwood, Little Creek Center; and Phoenix, Christown Spectrum.

“While closing stores is always an extremely difficult decision, our store optimization 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 stated in a news release.

J.C. Penney announced on May 15 that it plans to close more than 240 stores, which is nearly 30% of its 846 stores, as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring. The company announced that it planned to shutter 192 stores by February 2021 and then 50 more locations after that.

The company said Thursday it had reopened 500 stores that had been temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
