JCPenney has begun liquidation sales at the 137 stores it plans to close in the first wave of its reorganization. The company says it is offering discounts from 25 percent to 40 percent on all merchandise.
The retailer, in financial trouble before the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. Other stores not slated for closing continue to reopen across the country.
JCPenney has assembled a team of disposition firms to handle the sale. Those companies include Gordon Brothers, Hilco Merchant Resources, Great American Group, and Tiger Group.
The store closings are part of JCPenney’s plan to reduce its store footprint and focus resources on its strongest stores and eCommerce channel, jcp.com. While everything is marked down, the company says the deepest discounts -- up to 40 percent -- will be reserved for jewelry and window treatments.
“Due to the name recognition and goodwill of this brand, we encourage consumers to shop early to take advantage of the best selection of products as we expect merchandise to sell very quickly,” a spokesman for the disposition team said. “JCPenney store associates remain committed to providing customers with an engaging shopping experience while offering even better deals on the most popular merchandise.”
The retailer had already closed a number of stores as it fought a rising tide of red ink. The decision to close the 137 stores was part of an agreement with the company’s lenders.
