RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Four Ohio JCPenney locations are among 138 store closures that will impact 5,000 jobs nationwide.

Among those to be shuttered include the store at Richmond Town Square in Richmond Heights.

The other Ohio JCPenney closures are:

  • New Towne Mall in New Philadelphia
  • Findlay Village Mall in Findlay
  • St. Mary’s Square in St. Marys

Despite fears it would be among the cuts, the JCPenney store inside Akron's Chapel Hill Mall survived.

The company released the list of store closures Friday, most of which are expected to happen in June with the liquidation process beginning on April 17.

While some jobs will be relocated, JCPenney said they will “provide outplacement support services for those eligible associated who will be leaving the company.”
