We reported last week on what could have been the end of the South Plains Mall location of JCPenney. Morningstar had compiled a list of stores that were considered endangered, including Lubbock’s JCPenney location.

Well, there's some good news. According to both our friends at The Consumerist and our local media partner Everything Lubbock, the Lubbock JCPenney store has been spared -- for now, anyway.

It seems that the Lubbock store was important enough to save.

Here's a complete list of the Texas locations where JCPenney stores will be going away forever:

Athens Village Shopping CenterAthensTX
Borger Shopping PlazaBorgerTX
Heartland MallEarlyTX
El Paso DowntownEl PasoTX
Marshall MallMarshallTX
McAllen DowntownMcAllenTX
University MallNacogdochesTX
King Plaza Shopping CenterSeguinTX
Bosque River CenterStephenvilleTX

Except for El Paso and McAllen, these stores are very small locations. So, for now, REJOICE! And get those JCPenney credit cards out and shop. If you'll excuse me, I have socks and underwear to buy.
