RHINELANDER - Many people in the Northwoods will have to find somewhere else to shop.

J.C. Penney in Rhinelander closed today.

The company chose to close its stores in Rhinelander and Wausau because of poor sales.

Many employees are now left without jobs and customers have one less store to shop in.

Some regular customers are worried they'll have to shop at other department stores.

"I guess I'm going to have to if [J.C. Penney] is closing. Where else am I going to get some nice, tall and long shirts? It's hard finding them so it's kind of a bum deal," said Tom Larson, a customer.

Some customers hope another department store opens on Lincoln Street in Rhinelander.

They worry they'll be limited if they have only a few stores to choose from.
