The J.C. Penney store in Waxahachie, will not be among the 29 percent of stores recently contracted to close.

According to USA Today, J.C. Penney filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday, May 15, 2020 and announced that it would close nearly one third of its 846 stores.

Of the 242 stores to close, the Waxahachie location did not show to be one of the stores scheduled to close down by the end of the year.

In a Facebook Video, J.C.Penney stated, “J.C. Penney has been a part of American for more than 100 years, and we look forward to serving you for 100 more. While a lot has changed, our promise to you remains the same– to help you live life’s everyday occasion with brands you love at a great value, with exceptional service.”

Like various clothing stores, Waxahachie’s J.C. Penney has been temporarily closed since COVID-19. Back in March, safety precautions were put in place but the store will reopen as the state lifts its order for department stores to decrease their operations.

The Waxahachie store is located on 1441 N HWY 77 Waxahachie, TX 75165.
