HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Three months after the last merchandise crept off the shelves at the former Sears, the Hamilton Mall has confirmed another big-name department store will close.

J.C. Penney will close its Hamilton location July 5, Crystal Rodriguez, the mall’s marketing manager, said Thursday.

“This decision is the result of an ongoing review of our store portfolio, which includes assessing locations that may not meet our required financial targets or represent an opportunity to capitalize on a beneficial real estate asset,” the company said in a statement. “It’s never easy taking actions that directly impact our valued associates and customers, however we feel this is a necessary business decision.”
