We reported last week on what could have been the end of the South Plains Mall location of JCPenney. Morningstar had compiled a list of stores that were considered endangered, including Lubbock’s JCPenney location.

Well, there's some good news. According to both our friends at The Consumerist and our local media partner Everything Lubbock, the Lubbock JCPenney store has been spared -- for now, anyway.

It seems that the Lubbock store was important enough to save.

Here's a complete list of the Texas locations where JCPenney stores will be going away forever:

Athens Village Shopping Center Athens TX
Borger Shopping Plaza Borger TX
Heartland Mall Early TX
El Paso Downtown El Paso TX
Marshall Mall Marshall TX
McAllen Downtown McAllen TX
University Mall Nacogdoches TX
King Plaza Shopping Center Seguin TX
Bosque River Center Stephenville TX

Except for El Paso and McAllen, these stores are very small locations. So, for now, REJOICE! And get those JCPenney credit cards out and shop. If you'll excuse me, I have socks and underwear to buy.
