J.C. Penney’s new Dallas store reflects chain’s commitment to energy
Dallas -- J.C. Penney Co. 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.
