Plano, Texas — J.C. Penney Co. has revealed the locations of 13 additional stores it will permanently close, including seven in Michigan, as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. The Plano-based retailer says the other six locations set to close include two in Washington state, two in New York, one in California and one in Maryland. J.C. Penney filed for Chapter 11 protection May 15 and unveiled a list of 154 stores in late May that were set to close.
