Here are the JCPenney stores closing in 2017

JCPenney announced in February plans to close two distribution facilities and 138 department stores this year to redirect resources in higher-performing locations and initiatives.

"We believe closing stores will also allow us to adjust our business to effectively compete against the growing threat of online retailers," CEO Marvin Ellison said at the time.

The retailer recently provided a full list for stores impacted by the move, and customers can expect stores to begin liquidating their inventory in April.
