Another round of store closings of J.C. Penney locations, including shutting the one at Bay Shore’s Westfield South Shore mall, was announced last week.
The company, which filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May, released a plan to close 135 stores on June 17 and added an additional 13 closures on June 22.
The popular retailer, originally founded in 1902, began closing locations last year such as the one at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove.
Over the next few weeks, the shuttering locations will have closing sales, which could last 10-16 weeks, according to a report by Newsday.
While the last day of operation in Bay Shore wasn’t readily available, the company says all sales will be final at this store beginning July 3.
After the doors are shut for good there, the only Long Island location remaining will be at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City.
