All JC’s 5 Star Outlet/JC Penney Outlet stores in 14 states are closing. ”Going Out of Business” or “Total Inventory Blowout” sales start today. The closet JC Penney outlet to Oklahoma City is in Grapevine Mills Mall in Grapevine, Texas.
The outlet stores trace their roots to the JCPenney Co.’s 1962 purchase of a Milwaukee, Wis., mail order company, the General Merchandise Co. JCPenney realized the need for a process to sell overstocked and discontinued merchandise from its catalog and mail order operations, and in 1963 opened its first new outlet store in Wauwatosa, Wis. This original store, selling overstocked and discontinued merchandise, was advertised as “Penney’s Catalog Warehouse Outlet, an all-new, revolutionary type of Penney store.”
The outlet stores, which had been designated for closure by JCPenney, were acquired by SB Acquisitions in October 2011.
JC’s 5 Star Outlet/JCPenney Outlet sells a wide range of private-label and national-brand apparel, shoes, and accessories for the entire family, as well as small electrics, domestics, housewares, and other products for the home.
In addition to the inventory liquidation, fixtures and equipment from the stores also will be sold.
