JC Penney announced on Friday that 138 locations across the country will close.  Seven of the JC Penney locations set to close are in Michigan, but fortunately, the Owosso store is not listed among them.

The closest store on the chopping block is the Midland Mall location.  Stores at Lakeview Square Mall in Battle Creek, Westshore Mall in Holland, Delta Plaza in Escanaba, Copper Country Mall in Houghton, Birchwood Mall in Kingsford and Cascade Crossings in Sault Ste. Marie will also close as the company struggles to remain profitable.

JC Penney was listed among the top 5 stores in three separate categories on the first-ever Shiawassee A-LIST, the definitive "Best of" directory of leading local businesses throughout Shiawassee County, after the preliminary round of voting ended on February 25th.  JC Penney was among the five businesses in each of the categories, Men's Clothing, Women's Clothing and Kids Clothing, that received the most votes. 

The final round of A-LIST voting ended on Saturday, March 18th.  On April 3rd, the winning business in each of 51 categories will be revealed.
