Five Oregon J.C. Penney stores are set to close as the company restructures in an effort to improve profitability.

The company made the announcement 130 to 140 stores nationwide would close earlier this year. The "liquidation" process will begin in mid-April.

Here are the five Oregon stores that will close:

  • Downtown Astoria
  • Grants Pass Shopping Center
  • Downtown La Grande
  • Downtown Pendleton
  • The Dalles Main Street
