J.C. Penney Co. Inc. will close its Milwaukee distribution and customer care center, affecting about 670 jobs.

“As part of an effort to align our supply chain network and customer care operations with the future needs of the company, J.C. Penney will be closing its Milwaukee distribution and customer care center beginning this summer,” the company said in a statement. “The company’s supply chain network is oversized relative to its national store footprint, and can be optimized by transferring operations to facilities in Lenexa, Kan., and Columbus, Ohio.
