    • On June 05, 2020, it was reported, J.C. Penney has identified 154 stores it plans to permanently close initially in bankruptcy, with more closures expected to come as the department store chain winds through the court process. Going-out-of-business sales will start upon court approval of Penney's plan, the company said in a press release. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for June 11. On Thursday, Penney received court approval for a bankruptcy financing package that gives it immediate access to $225 million, with access to an equal amount in July, subject to conditions. Approval came over objections from some creditors who took issue with the terms and securitization of the financing package.
