JCPenney will reopen in Potomac Mills mall.

Woodbridge, Va. – After closing its outlet store at Potomac Mills mall earlier this year, JCPenney will reopen in its old location as a full retail store.

Work is underway now to transform the old drab gray 107,000 square-foot interior of the old store to match the brighter look of the company’s’ regular retail stores.

“The addition of JCPenney will enhance our great value retail mix and establish us as an innovative hybrid shopping destination, offering outlet, value and full-price retail selections,” says Mike Sullivan, general manager of Potomac Mills in a press release. “We believe that our shoppers will appreciate this one-stop shopping opportunity and it will soar Potomac Mills to new heights.”

The new store is expected to open in March, and will join other nearby large anchor stores like Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH .

This is the latest in a series of changes taking place at the mall. Last week, Potomac Mills mall replaced its iconic highway sign after the old one blew away during a windstorm in February, and a new children’s playground was installed.
