The JCPenney Dunkirk store is one of 138 locations nationwide slated for closure, according to an announcement by the company Friday.

There are two other JCPenney closings in New York state — one in West Nyack and another in Massapequa.

More stores could close to save money, but for now, the site at the Chautauqua Mall in Lakewood was not on the list.

The Dunkirk JCPenney is located at the D&F Plaza on Central Avenue. Company officials said liquidations at the stores that are closing would begin around April 17.
