JCPenney is facing bankruptcy and is expected to file Chapter 11 this Friday (05-15-20). The company is seeking a $450 million dollar loan and in order to make that happen they have to close 180 to 200 stores.
An online petition at Change.org has been created seeking signatures to hopefully convince the Dillard's Corporation not to leave the mall, or Lawton. Will it work? Well we have to try and it beats just doing nothing.
We've been hearing rumors for the past several days online and elsewhere that the Lawton Dillard's in the Central Mall is closing. Sadly it's not a rumor anymore, it's been confirmed and they will be closing the Dillard's here in Lawton.
