Old Mr. JC Penney must be turning over in his grave. Whoever is running the company now and made all of these changes has ruined it — both with the in-your-face homosexual crap and the “there will be no more sales, just low prices” crap. I get their new “catalogs” in the mail about once a month, and they are a waste of paper. What they are advertising, I would never buy, as it is all for the under 30 crowd. Too bad — another American institution down the dumper.
I get the catalogs too. I used to order a lot from them, as they carry clothes for tall men. The clothes I'm wearing at work now are from JCP. However, the catalogs are pathetic. Instead of showing a normal looking guy what their clothes look like, the show nothing but gay-looking unshaven metrosexuals who dress nothing like a regular guy. Those catalogs cannot be helping them to sell clothes.
They picked the guy that was running the Apple Stores. You believe that?
They pick a guy from a customer intimate company to run a value play.
He had crappy, bulky, but very hip products for which people were willing to pay unbelievable premiums. They pick him to run a store getting squeezed by the Targets and the WalMarts.
He hires what had to be Target’s image firm and the FIRST thing they do is go political. It’s something EVEN TARGET hasn’t done yet. “We used circles with Target, let’s switch to rectangles with JCP!”
I’m telling you, there is a silent majority in this country that is sick to death of the bullying they are getting from the hands of the sodomites and tribadists.
What you said! They are aiming for a younger market...which lets me out. They’ve dropped the catalog sales, and I used to spend a bundle on their furniture, linens, and home items each quarter when their special catalog came out quarterly for those spending in excess of $300 in the prior quarter...not a nickel since the changes were in force. Went there just this last weekend to their home store and not only didn’t find a thing I wanted, and, of course nothing on sale, but there were only two other customers in the store. What a shame...they will be the next to close.
