J.C. Penney begs shoppers to come back Posted on Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 at 12:10 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple Wow, they must be doing very bad. http://mangochut.net/ mangochutney Oh wow, this is dripping with desperation. Terry Maraccini Would that be, “they’re doing pretty badly?” http://www.thegraphicmac.com/ JimD You used to be able to get decent clothes at a reasonable price at Penney’s. Now you get shitty clothes at a low, but still too much for shitty clothes price.They also can’t seem to decide if they want to be hip, or middle-of-the-road as far as trends. As a result, you get skinny jeans in colors and patterns that only a 90 year old blind man would wear, and $7 t-shirts so thin that they can easily be mistaken for toilet paper. lucascott It will be interesting to see how things go for them now G The one thing I’d hoped Johnson would raze & reform is their awful website. No such luck. JCP was a retail pioneer 100 years ago, a catalog mail-order innovator 50 years ago, and a technology leader with online shopping 30 years ago (Viewtron!). It’s sad that they aim for “also” now.
