It’s been a brutal week for many big American retailers.

JCPenney announced Friday that it will cut 360 jobs at its stores and corporate headquarters. That’s on top of the more than 5,000 layoffs in 2017 after JCPenney decided to close nearly 140 stores.

The struggling retailer also said that its earnings and sales for this year will be worse than what Wall Street analysts were expecting. Shares of JCPenney (JCP) plunged nearly 10% in early trading.

JCPenney wasn’t the only prominent bricks and mortar chain to report poor results this week.

Barnes & Noble (BKS) posted a quarterly loss and a drop in sales Thursday morning, sending the bookstore’s shares to an all-time low.

Victoria apparently needs a new Secret too. L Brands (LB), the owner of the lingerie seller and Bath & Body Works, plunged 14% Thursday after its outlook turned out to be more devilish than angelic.

Nordstrom (JWN), which is trying to go private, failed to impress investors with its latest results after the closing bell Thursday. Its stock fell 6% Friday morning.
