MASSENA -- JC Penny is closing 18 stores across the United States, but the Massena store will not be one of them.

“As part of a standard annual review, the decision was made to close 18 stores across the country, including the three previously announced stores in early January,” said Carter English, corporate communications and public relation for J.C. Penny.

“We have also made the determination to close nine home and furniture stores this fall, which are not reflected in the official store count in the Company’s 10-K,” English said.

The JCPenney in the St. Lawrence Centre mall in Massena is not a part of the 18 store closures, English said.
