The popup stores will be open by the end of the month in time for its annual baby sale, the company said in the press release.
There are currently more than 860 J.C. Penney locations in the United States.
But J.C. Penney isn’t the only company trying to snag the shoppers left high and dry when Babies R Us and Toys R Us closed all stores in June.
Party City is trying to lure customers who used to visit Toys R Us for birthday party items to its stores, USA Today reported.
Walmart has updated its website's baby pages, allowing shoppers to browse by style and offering more baby products, increasing the number to 30,000 items over the last year, CBS News reported.
Target has also been banking on the demise of Babies R Us. It has expanded its Cloud Island brand adding more diaper bags and crib sheets, while Amazon is using Khole Kardashian and her pregnancy to boost its baby registries, sharing it with her 70 million Instagram followers, CBC News reported.
