JC PENNEY CELEBRATES 50 YEARS AT RICHMOND SQUARE MALL

(Richmond, IN)--One of the original tenants of the Richmond Square Mall is celebrating its 50th anniversary there.  Back on the first of June in 1966, JC Penney was in the first couple of weeks in business on what was then Richmond’s eastern edge.  It also marked the beginning of a shift in Richmond’s retail.  JC Penney had operated Uptown since 1927 before jumping on the mall bandwagon in 1966.
