Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

The JC Penney store in Regency Mall, 5900 Durand Ave., will be closing for good in early April, a store employee confirmed.

Employees were told in November that the store will be closing because the building at 5900 Durand Ave. was sold. 

JC Penney Properties Inc., JC Penney’s real estate management company, owned the building and listed the 150,000 square foot building for $2.5 million in July. Penny Racine LLC, an affiliate of Northbrook, Ill-based Learsi & Co., bought the property for $2.2 million in November.

Under state law, companies  that employ 50 or more people in the state are required to give 60 days notice before a mass layoff or closing.
