Add JCPenney to the list of retailers closing stores.

The Texas-based department store chain said it will shutter 20 locations this summer, according to Country Living.

JCPenney has about 800 stores nationwide. It joins a number of other chains that have been reducing their footprints in recent months, including Party City.

“Retail is a dynamic business with many touchpoints that together lead back to the customer experience,” CEO Jill Soltau said in a written statement. “We are working to reestablish the fundamentals of retail at JCPenney, and at the same time, we are building capabilities to satisfy the wants and expectations of our customers. In everything we do, we are putting the customer at the center. My commitment is that we will make sound, strategic decisions backed by data and will always be rooted in delivering on our customers’ wants and expectations.”
