J.C. Penney to reopen Washington mall site
J.C. Penney Co. plans to temporarily reopen a former store in the Washington Mall in South Strabane, Washington County, to serve customers in the region impacted by the June 6 closing of its store in the Foundry shopping center in that community.
The Penney's store and others at the Foundry closed due to ground settling problems.
Preparations and move-in at the Washington Mall store will begin in August, with opening expected in mid-September, the company said.
It plans to reopen the Foundry store once problems are identified and resolved, although no timetable has been set. Store associates' pay has continued since the store's closing and will continue through Aug. 2. Associates will be offered continued employment during the relocation process.
The Washington Mall store closed in February 2007, shortly before the opening of the Foundry location.
