We love us some J.C. Penney. Say what you will, but they’ve always had some pretty great deals and some pretty solid apparel (and other items) as well. Fashion Square – well, not so much. At least not anytime in the past five or so years.
Orlando Fashion Square (aka – Fashion Square Mall) has been in a sad, sad state for a long, long time. Of course, plans were announce dnot too terribly long ago for a brand new (outdoor) shopping concept in its place. That said, JC Penney has recently released information that it plans to permanently close its location at Fashion Square sometime later this month.
As far as we can tell from the research completed, other Central Florida J.C. Penney locations will continue to remain open. This includes: Florida Mall, Altamonte Mall, and Seminole Towne Center. We’ll continue to watch for updates on this, of course.
