J.C. Penney, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month, has just announced that it will be closing its store at Orlando Fashion Square Mall.
The store closure is one of over 150 that were announced across the country with liquidation sales planned to begin mid-month.
Other J.C. Penney locations in Central Florida, including Florida Mall, Altamonte Mall, and Seminole Towne Center will continue to operate. At least for the time being.
A recent report by Austin Fuller of Orlando Sentinel provided an update from the property’s new owners that the plan to open a new open-air development there is still moving forward and is expected to happen by the end of 2022.
The Orlando Fashion Square Mall is located at 3115 E. Colonial Drive [GMap].
