J.C. Penney announced Wednesday, Jan. 15, that it will close 33 underperforming stores as part of its turnaround efforts, but its store in Elkhart’s Concord Mall won’t be one of them.

The move is expected to cut 2,000 jobs nationally and save $65 million beginning this year, the Plano, Texas-based department store chain said in a statment. The closure list includes stores in the Five Points Mall in Marion and Marketplace Shopping Center in Warsaw.

Bob Thatcher, general manager of the Concord Mall, said he would have been surprised if that store was slated for closure because of the thorough renovation the store received over the past two years.

“We’re all thrilled with our fully renovated and really gorgeous J.C. Penney store that continues to operate successfully at the Concord Mall,” Thatcher said. “Traffic has been good.”
