Popular department chain JCPenney has announced the closing of 138 stores across the United States. Some feared fear that Yakima would be on that list, but I'm happy to say we're saved!

USAToday released a map of all the stores that are closing which includes locations in Seattle, Portland and even The Dalles, Ore., but our location in Yakima is here to stay.

Yes, that includes the Sephora location inside JCPenney.

This isn't the first time Yakima has been on the saved list. We still have our Radio Shack and many other stores that have had nationwide closings.

See the list of other JCPenney stores at USAToday's website.
