J.C. Penney says the company is closing thirty-three “underperforming” stores across the country, including two in Indiana, as a cost-cutting measure that will mean about two-thousand job cuts. The two Indiana stores are at the Marketplace Shopping Center in Warsaw and at the Five Points Mall in Marion. Also on the list are two stores in Illinois, including one in west suburban Bloomingdale at Stratford Square Mall. The closings are expected to save the retailer about 65-million dollars a year. Remaining inventory at the affected stores will be sold over the next several months, with the final closings expected to be complete by early May.
