BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Two J.C. Penney stores are closing in Arkansas according to a newly released list from the company.

The Blytheville store in the Chickasaw Plaza, 301 N. Service Road, is closing along with a J.C. Penney store in Benton.

J.C. Penney states 138 stores total will be closing.

The company made the announcement in late February, but a list was not released at the time.

Last month the company said the closures are happening as a "plan to optimize its national retail operations as part of the company's successful return to profitability."
