Closed Accounts on my Credit Report
I have 3 store card accounts on my report: JCP, Kohls and Victoria Secrets. The JCP and Kohls say they are closed- does this hurt my credit score at all? Should I try to remove them? The Victoria Secret card says active but I haven't used it in years. Should I close this one too and try to remove it?

Do not be the one to close a credit card, since that hurts your score far more than if the store closes it.  The closed cards will drop off after 7 years so yo[u don't have to do a thing.
