A staple in downtown Wahpeton is expected to be one of the many stores across the country set to close. The employees at JC Penney have been told that the store on Dakota Avenue is on the list of 130-140 stores that will close over the next few months. It comes as a result of increased competition from online retailers.
JC Penney has been in that same location for 103 years.
