JCPenney in Spencer is not on the list of stores the retailer plans to close this summer, though more closure announcements are expected.
The retailer, which declared bankruptcy last month, announced that it would be closing 154 store locations.
The company declared bankruptcy while facing the same struggles of the coronavirus pandemic that other businesses have had to navigate.
Stores in Carroll and Marshalltown are among the list of those that will be closing.
JCPenney in Spencer is one of the anchor stores at Southpark Mall.
The store reopened on May 27 following a temporary closure due to COVID-19.
JCPenney is expected to announce more store closings in the coming weeks.
