SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - The JCPenney store in Sheridan will be among 138 locations the retailer plans to close amid tough competition from online sales.

JCPenney got its start in Kemmerer, Wyoming, in 1902. The closings don’t include the JCPenney Museum and Mother Store in Kemmerer and other locations around Wyoming.

The Sheridan Press reports (https://bit.ly/2nl9V70) liquidation of the affected stores will begin April 17 and 5,000 jobs will be cut or otherwise affected.
