DALLAS — JCPenney will unveil the newest iteration of its store model with the opening of its new Dallas store in the TimberCreek Crossing shopping center on Sept. 30.
The 105,000-sq.-ft. single-level store provides an assortment of services under one roof, including dedicated in-store environments for MNG by Mango and a 1,700-sq.-ft. Sephora shop.
The TimberCreek Crossing store also reflects the retailer’s commitment to energy efficiency. It is one of two stores selected for inclusion in the Department of Energy's Net-Zero Energy Project. Under project guidelines, the store is designed to achieve energy savings of 50% or more compared with code-minimum energy-efficiency requirements for similar new buildings.
The new location, also certified as "Designed to Earn the Energy Star," is incorporating features such as:
High-efficiency 12.6 EER rooftop heating and air-conditioning units.
Energy-saving, long-lasting LED lights throughout the store.
Double-layer roof insulation and spray-foam wall insulation to yield higher "R" values than typical stores.
Radiant heating in the receiving dock area to reduce reliance on natural gas.
Skylights with automatic daylight dimming controllers in offices and stockrooms.
