The two retail stores are expected to take up 40,000 of the store’s 65,000 square feet of space on the first floor.
The JC Penney store closed its doors in April after the new owners Learsi & Co. Inc. announced a plan to redevelop the space and lease the property to three to four new tenants, said David Israel, president of Learsi & Co.
JC Penney sold the store, 5900 Durand Ave., to Learsi & Co. in November for $2.5 million.
