Update:Area Leaders Work to Keep JC Penney Open in Selma
From the West Alabama Newsroom-- Leaders from the Selma and Dallas County area are trying to keep the doors open at the JC Penney store in Selma.
Selma Mayor George Evans says area leaders are working to see if there is anything that can be done to keep the store from closing.
Selma resident Tasho Ruffin says he hopes their efforts to keep the store open are successful.
"Hopefully it doesn't close, maybe they could put something in the place of it, but to take JC Penney, that's a huge loss to me," said Ruffin.
