Keep the city of San Fernando store open.

    1. Petition by

      Save JCP San Fernando

JCP has been in San Fernando for more than 80 years . Built in this tight knit Latino community decades ago, the store still embraces it's retro logo with a sign that has proudly lit up the charming downtown mainstreet shopping center. Heartbroken San Fernando residents want to know why their beloved historic JCPenney store is closing down especially since JCP has enjoyed and reaped the benefits of being in this hardworking community. For years this location had been a top performing store. As JCP has moved to change its business structure and image, its sales revenues have declined but not any more than the rest of the chain. Further this is the only store that is being closed in California! This legacy store is more than just another store for those living in San Fernando. People feel an attachment to the store because for generations families have shopped there for everything from underwear to household goods. These families are part of America and want America's store to stay in San Fernando.

      Petition Organizer

      People are weighing in on JCP's departure and asking them to stay and roll out their new store concept in San Fernando. The community has supported JCP throughout the years even though it relegated the store to an outlet. The new concept is perfect for this community and would draw many more shoppers than it does today. Keep sending the petition to your friends and family. We need to send JCP a strong message that they are making a mistake closing this location!

      Grew up in Pacoima, my parents still live there and shop there. I also shop there when driving through San Fernando Mall to visit them. There is not another large department store for quite a few miles. Please Bring Back. Thank you

      Close to my home, historical significance. I can think of absolutely no benefit in closing this store.

      JC Penney was the only department store in the city of San Fernando. This community needs a decent department store. Please bring the store back.

      I have been shopping at this store since I was 16 years old, for over 30 years. Please reconsider your decision and keep the J.C. Penney Store, in The City of San Fernando open.
