J. C. Penney, which announced Wednesday it would close 33 stores nationwide and eliminate 2,000 jobs, confirmed Thursday that the closings won’t include any stores in and around the Capital Region. The closest store closing appears to be in Meriden, Conn. Since we first posted this list, we’ve gotten some comments essentially saying: What about Latham?

That store wasn’t part of the current wave of closings. Penney announced back in October the Latham Circle Mall store would close, and we’re guessing that’s because the rest of the mall has been demolished as efforts continue to redevelop it, and it probably wasn’t doing a lot of business, situated as it was in the middle of a ruin.

Here’s the list of closings:

Selma Mall, Selma, Ala.; Arrow Plaza, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif; Chapel Hills Mall, Colorado Springs, Colo.; Meriden Square, Meriden, Conn.; Lake Square Mall, Leesburg, Fla.; Gulf View Square, Port Richey, Fla.; Muscatine Mall, Muscatine, Iowa; Stratford Square Mall, Bloomingdale, Ill.; Hickory Point Mall, Forsyth, Ill.; Five Points Mall, Marion, Ind.; Marketplace Shopping Center, Warsaw, Ind.; The Center at Salisbury, Salisbury, Md.; Westwood Plaza, Marquette, Mich.; Northland Mall, Worthington, Minn.; Singing River Mall, Gautier, Miss.; Natchez Mall, Natchez, Miss.; Butte Plaza Shopping Center, Butte, Montana; Cutbank, Montana; Vernon Park Mall, Kinston, N.C.; Burlington Center, Burlington, N.J.: Phillipsburg Mall, Phillipsburg, N.J.; Wayne Towne Plaza, Wooster, Ohio; Exton Square Mall, Exton, Pa.; Laurel Mall, Hazleton, Pa.; Washiington Mall, Washington, Pa.; Northgate Mall, Chattanooga, Tenn.; Bristol Mall, Bristol, Va.; Military Circle Mall, Norfolk, Va.; Forest Mall, Fond Du Lac, Wis.; Janesville Mall, Janesville, Wis.; Lincoln Plaza Center, Rhinelander, Wis.; Cedar Mall, Rice Lake, Wis.; and Wausau Mall, Wausau, Wis..
