I didn't go anywhere and JCPenney never contacted me, but it's good to know you keep track of me and I'm missed. I have never said I hate JCPenney customers and challenge to find one post stating that. I love my customers and they love me. Most of them ask for me by name and if I'm at lunch or in a meeting they seem really disappointed. You, on the other hand, probably never had any customer that preferred you over one of Retails hamburger flippers.
And just remember "I see a bad moon rising. I see trouble on the way."
Can't stand it when JCPenney has a good idea can you Bob? Never has been anything wrong with the ethics of this company. Sometimes we had to get rid of a few malcontents that couldn't see they weren't right for the company. That allows those of us that live and breathe customer service to start see the fruits of our labors.
I would have thought you were too busy "reporting" me to have time for frivolities. Answering a thread you started under your brand new ID. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk.
Wonder who you really are?
Guess you're just another Bob. That's shorthand for mindless windbag.
"Yes. What they will probably do is ship clearance items to the closing stores, then deeply discount it"
And we hear from yet another non - retailer. Doesn't happen that way in real life. That amount gained of discounting would be eaten alive by freight costs and payroll to process.
Now if you really want to know what happens is, they don't replenish the inventory prior to announcing the store closings. A liquidator is then called in to sell off what they can of the inventory, fixtures, etc., the rest is shipped to Family Dollars or Big Lots.
Now please tell us about your vast experience in retail and liquidations. I've been here when they closed the stores in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico and got rid of the Drug store chain, but I'm sure you learned a lot more than that from those textbooks of yours. Why is it the people with the least experience post the most?
If we followed Macy's we would already have been in and out of Chapter 11 and be profitable. Now did you have another point outside of the one on your head?
I didn't miss anything. They sell down the inventory prior to the time of the store closing sale, where the bulk of the sales occur. It's not enough to affect the 4Q sales much one way or the other. Since these are under performing stores to start with, his point and yours is simply not valid.
I'm going to guess you're more the academic type and never spent any time at all in a real retail environment. Real world and book larnin are two different animals. My father and I have more than a half century in the real retail world. How about you?
Stores don't close until April?? Sales won't occur start until 1st Feb?? That will be 1Q not 4Q
What actor comedian played drums in what he called a "bad jazz band" with a couple of college chums who later went on to great musical success. I wish I'd have know these guys back at my old school. Can you peg who the actor comedian is and also what great band did his school mates go on to establish
I notice one of the stores closed was in Ohio, guess that's close to the the "S" town from your friend Retay. Now what are the people going to do for shoe expertise? Maybe he can get a job at Payless. You really shouldn't be sniffing around him, he's married to an older woman with kids. I think she's up there in years, around mid forties, I think
"Upper management layoffs is news to me. Where did that info come from?"
I thought you and Bob knew everything. You aren't in the loop and never were. You were just one of Retay's hamburger flippers. Once we finish getting rid of the deadwood perhaps we can move this company forward. We cleared a bunch of the left over holiday inventory this week. Looks good going into the EOY, but then again you knew that didn't you. HA HA.
Well looky, looky, looky, if it isn't the three musketeers. What are we conspiring about today? We know if Bob and Reta are involved it must be a secret at the highest level. Reta is still hung up on those gas prices, I see, although I don't know why anyone would care.
Not much time to chat today, FakeFraud85 has turned me into the MB police so I'm in hiding.
I'm starting to lose patience with you. You were going to report me to the MB Police yesterday and I don't have all day to wait, unless of course you were just telling as big a whopper as the ID you created pretending to be me. I'm betting you're a lying bag of s#$t.
If you're the real deal post your Store #. Retay will jump on that in a heartbeat. So far you've failed every other metric to prove you're really me.
How many miles did Retay drive to take his son to college from Ohio, and how many gallons of gas did he use. Nothing? Kind of likeyou, huh
I bought that whispering winds lp you were talking about, previewed it in the store, but dropped it on the way home and busted it.
It sounded better busted. Better try another song. This time make it something everyone would know that I like.
the one, the only JCPenneyman85, report away.
OMG, that was quick !!!!!!
A black car just pulled up in front of my house.
Never mind, it was just the city, I called them because some sewage was backing up into my computer.
"Genesis "Wind and the Wuthering" is more like it"
Ok, but lame compared to "Time Is Tight" Mr. Booker 'T' himself. Saw em live in the early 70's??? with the Credence boys.
Oh, boy. Another mini-me. I should be flattered to be so popular, but each one is less believable than the one before. So now you've seen the real, the one, the only JCPenneyman85, report away. I don't have long to chat today, I have to go in early, lots and lots of clearance racks and with the weekend coupons, I can just see em lined up for their doorbusters.
And, you don't have to like Bobby to love Honey, but not being an eclectic music aficionado, you wouldn't know that.
No falling flat on my face here darling. You're still just mad because RJ was on the right track and started with getting rid of lazy non-producing deadwood. Customers are much happier now coming into the store without having to look at their scowling faces. Imagine what they thought when they saw unhappy Bob's face. Wouldn't make me want to buy anything, even with a coupon.
I have always loved my customers. The "in your face" coupon clippers are not JCPenney customers. I don't have a better word than Freeloaders for anyone that expects something for nothing just for coming into my store. If you want something for free sign up for food stamps. Can't make it any clearer than that. I've never taken anything from anyone and don't expect anyone to ask anything from me.
Sitting here listening to a little Goldsboro "Honey" and getting all down makes me wish a sincere R.I P. to all my wannabee ID's. Had to do a little "Time is Tight", Booker T to bring me out of my funk. Been a bad year, if everyone would have listened to RJ and given him time, by now this company would have been #1 in retail, but no, you had to let them coupon clippers get to you. The future of retail is not coupons and discounts like Ullmans only card to play. I sincerely worry about the future of my company when you let Wall Street and the discounters rule your fate. Let's see if you can do a bit better this year. The only thing positive I can say about last year is we got rid of Bob, Screwed, and Retayl. I think you'll all join me in saying they had nothing positive to contribute to my company.
So, let's start the new year with less coupons, and a little more upbeat attitude.
Real deal dude here, go ahead and check my ID. I'm the one and only 85. Now, I'm not sure about Retayl, who knows who he really is? Shoe clerk in Dayton Ohio or bought a Catalog store in 2005, shorting JCP all the way. What kind of loyal employee does that. Probably hides in the back office watching Netflix all day. Doesn't need the job, has a rich old hag to mooch off of.
