just visited JCP in Amherst MA...Wednesday afternoon..not a lot happening at the mall but the light traffic,,was evenly divided between JCp ,,target,movie theater and all the smaller stores...JCP was clean ,,adequately staffed and enough customers to have a nice feel to it,,,i bought a nice winter jacket a for 4 year old,,good selection and reasonable price...lady gave us $10 off coupon while we were there
i visited JCP in houston, tx last week end and I agree the store was clean, very well organised and adequately staffed. On the pricing while I saw some good deals on the bedding and curtains, the men apparel seemed overly expensive.
Another thing they have to get rid of this fair and square pricing MARKING strategy. I mean the price tags seem so sheepish when sale price is the same font as the suggested price and rest of the description. I think making it bolder would make it more appealing to holiday crowd. IMO
But JCP really needs to some hefty discounts, a clearance section in every aisle if they are serious about staging a come back. The only thing that is working in their favor is they are close to holiday season and should be relatively easy to drive up revenues.
wow,,this is probably the only factual comment that's been posted here in a week,,,thankyou,,,a lot of BS by opinionated, illinformed, rude, so called short selling stock experts...everyone is an expert tomorrow..
