J.C. Penney stores have been set to close all across the country after the retail giant announced they planned to consolidate outlets.
The announcement came after declining sales made the company plan to close dozens of stores across the nation.
However, since announcing the closures, J.C. Penney just announced they are postponing the closures due to increased customer traffic.
"Ever since the company announced its store closure list, those stores have seen better-than-expected sales and traffic," J.C. Penney spokeswoman Daphne Avila told CNBC. "This is not an uncommon response when you announce a store closure. Local shoppers will come out for a variety of reasons – some out of nostalgia and some who are just looking for a great deal."
So, while stores will still close, J.C. Penney is postponing the liquidation and it will now begin May 22 instead of April 17 as originally scheduled.
Are you happy about this? Are you still shopping at your local store?
