JCPenney store

The JCPenney store at the Killeen Mall is safe from the latest round of store closures.

KILLEEN — The JCPenney retail store at Killeen Mall was spared from the latest round of store closures planned.

Stores in Baytown and Greenwood, Mississippi, are holding liquidation sales. The Greenwood store is scheduled to close on Oct. 24 and the Baytown location on Dec. 5.

JCPenney was one of the largest retailers in the nation to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

JCPenney officials told USA Today that it will have 670 stores open after these two liquidation happen.

The JCPenney store in the Temple Mall, which had been there for decades, closed earlier this year.
