J.C. Penney on Friday listed the 138 stores it is closing.
The move will impact about 5,000 employees, the company said. J.C. Penney said it will provide outplacement support for those who will lose their jobs.
Most stores will start the liquidation process on April 17, and the closures will be complete by June.
The closing stores represent about 13 to 14 percent of the company's portfolio, and less than 5 percent of annual sales.
