In case you hadn't heard already, JC Penney announced the sad news that the Burley, Idaho location would be closing. According to reports, the closing of the Burley JC Penney has already begun. 

There was some hope recently that there might be more time since JC Penney had announced they were delaying some store closures until July due to recent activity. USA Today mentioned this as recently as April.

We had the following message shared with us today.

Penneys in Burley is closing up. Moving everything out.

Much much much sooner than I expected. ;-(

Our thoughts and prayers remain with all of the employees affected by this closing. We wish the best for them and their families moving forward.
