Hampton J.C. Penney to close for relocation

The J.C. Penney store in Hampton is scheduled to be closed from July 21 to Aug. 3 as it changes location. The department store, part of the now-closed Coliseum Mall, will remain on the same plot of land but move closer to the intersection of Coliseum Drive and Cunningham Drive. The move is part of the development of that property into the Peninsula Town Center. The department store’s grand opening is planned for Aug. 3 at the new location.

  1. Thanks for the update from the Daily Press.

    Only thing is: whatever could the DP mean that a store “will remain on the same plot of land but move closer”? Maybe this oracular contradiction comes directly or indirectly from a vague press release. Or the DP means to say Penney’s will be on same general plot of land (the lot formerly known as the Coliseum Mall), but at a different specific location on that overall plot.

    Sorry–picker of nits will now go into lurker mode.

  2. Real estate terms….we could do without ’em! The “plot” of land that Coliseum Mall is on is being all shook up. take the giant outline of the property and shift Penny’s from it’s current location to the northeast (or I think it’s northeast). Anyway, it’s moving diagonally, closer to coliseum drive, up from where Rices-Nachman’s (and later Hess’, Proffitt’s, and then Dillard’s for Women) used to be. Directly across from the Shell station.

    PS — Mercury Blvd has been closed this weekend so that the flyover can be demo’d. As of 7pm last night, the large steel beams of the flyover are completly history. They still have to fill in and repave the gaping hole left by the supports on the Mercury Blvd side, but it had been cut away and removed back to the Coliseum Drive side, which I supposed will be finished being removed today. Maybe only 500 feet of it remain – it’s been cut back almost even with the Outback Steak House. It changed the landscape all over again. If only I had had my camera with me!

    Whoa–it’s gonna be real weird seeing that flyover gone . . .

    Thanks for the Penney’s info.
