Westfarms’ JC Penney Closed Thursday Due to Water Damage, Will Reopen Friday

by Categorized: Retail Date:

The JC Penney store at Westfarms Mall was closed all day Thursday and had to scramble to reopen Friday, as workers cleaned up damage from a broken water pipe.

A spokeswoman for the mall said the break was apparently caused by construction work in or around the store, and that damage to merchandise was minimal.

Late Thursday afternoon, it still wasn’t clear what happened and when the incident occurred, according to the store’s operations manager, who declined to give her name. “We had a lot of water damage…not sure the cause,” the operations manager said.

At the time, she said they were still assessing the cause, the damage to the store and merchandise, and whether the store, the anchor on the southern end of the mall, would reopen on time Friday.

By early evening, the store posted a recording on its telephone line apologizing for the closure, adding that it would reopen on schedule Friday.
