LATHAM, N.Y. -- A staple to what was once the Latham Circle Mall is closing its doors Saturday.
JC Penney has been in Latham since 1957, but the company says because of declining sales and mall restructuring, the store is closing.
According to a spokesman for the company, some employees are being transferred to other stores, while others preferred to look elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Dick's Sporting Goods, currently in Latham Farms, has filled paperwork with the town for a building permit.
And the developer is looking to bring a movie theater back as well at an entertainment venue.
Lowe's is currently the only tenant at the site.
