JCPenney in Evansville was briefly closed on Tuesday evening. A mysterious maintenance issue forced shoppers to leave the store at Eastland Mall.
A viewer was in the store at the time a little before 7 p.m. and sent Eyewitness news a picture of a sign on the door which read “Closed Due to Maintenance Issue.”
Employees told everyone inside to leave for a little while, but JCPenney opened back up less than an hour later.
Eastland Mall officials were not available for comment. Authorities were not called to the scene.
Eyewitness News will provide more information as soon as it’s released.
