JC Penney - one of the nation’s largest department store retailers - is officially opening nine new stores nationwide on Friday, March 6, including a Manteca location in The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley at the Highway 120 Bypass and Union Road.

The formal opening is being marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the store’s main entrance at 8:45 a.m.

 “We’re looking forward to being part of this dynamic community and serving the people of Manteca with the best JC Penney has to offer,” said Store Manager Steve Hernandez.  “With the store’s convenient design, great merchandise assortment, and exceptional team of associates, we will provide an outstanding shopping experience for our customers.  We invite everyone to come celebrate our opening with us.”

 JC Penney, celebrating 107 years of serving America, has served California shoppers since 1914. The new store will contribute approximately 130 jobs to the Manteca economy.  JC Penney at The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley will operate Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The 104,000-square-foot store showcases JC Penney’s two brand concepts: a Sephora beauty boutique and the American Living collection of fashions for men, women, children and home.

The full-service Sephora boutique covers approximately 1,500 square feet and boasts the best that Sephora has to offer, including some of the most desired brands in makeup, skincare, fragrance, and accessory products. The Sephora inside JC Penney is staffed by a team of beauty consultants specially trained in the Science of Sephora.

 Launched exclusively at JC Penney in February 2008, American Living is a new tradition in American style for family and home. Developed for the JC Penney customer by Polo Ralph Lauren’s Global Brand Concepts, the classic traditional lifestyle brand captures the American spirit with its timeless style and impeccable quality all at JC Penney’s signature smart price.  

Throughout the store, wide aisles and efficient customer service centers make shopping easy and convenient. The layout helps shoppers easily locate major brands, including The Original Arizona Jean Company, Chris Madden, nicole by Nicole Miller, Liz & Co., Ambrielle, a.n.a, SouthPole, Worthington, Stafford, Bisou-Bisou, Carter’s and Nike.

The new JC Penney provides an assortment of services under one roof, including an all-occasion portrait studio, expert in-home custom decorating services, and a full-service salon offering an array of professional hair and beauty services, as well as products from leading salon brands. In addition, customers can place orders or pick up internet and catalog purchases at the store’s Service desk.

As part of the grand opening celebration on March 6, the JC Penney Afterschool Fund will contribute a $5,000 grant to the YMCA of San Joaquin County that will allow local children to participate in after-school programs during the school year.  Additionally, JC Penney will provide five $50 gift cards to the local YMCA to help students purchase school apparel. The contributions will be presented during the store’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.
