LAFAYETTE, La. — The JCPenney store in the Acadiana Mall in Lafayette is among the 154 locations that the company announced on Thursday that it plans to close.

According to a list on the JCPenny website, the Acadiana Mall location is among thee locations in Louisiana that will close with additional closures expected to be announced later this month.

The company has been hemorrhaging locations in recent years as shifts in consumer habits have led customers away from legacy retailers such as JCPenney. Stores closing due to the COVID-19 have hastened the demise for companies like JCPenney.

The affected stores will begin store closing sales on June 12. It will take 10 to 16 weeks to close the 154 stores.
