    here's a couple of witnesses that can testify - - - -
    Today News - - Jul. 24, 2013 at 6:12 AM

    Gena Stone says she did it when she worked at a JC Penney in Virginia. "All of a sudden, the rack of $7 shorts became $14, and then they were 50 percent off."

    "What did you say to your bosses when they asked you to do this?" we asked.

    "They said it was coming down from corporate in Texas," Gena told us.

    “Were you comfortable doing it?” we asked.

    “No.” Gena replied.

    Gena quit the store after six months. Bob Blatchford still works at JC Penney, at a store in Florida. He told us, "I saw a lot of pricing teams going through the store, raising the prices, mostly doubling — towels and clothing."

    "Double the price?"

    I guess as proof we could use some posts from at least a couple of witnesses on this board(Bob and Skrewed) as well as pictures of repriced merchandise peeled back to show the original price that was published in several magazines and on various news stories - - - - - I know those won't meet your strict criteria but they will suffice in a court of law.

    As far as your "And btw, where did the Banks come from, Ohhh you!" - - - - I did take the liberty of abbreviating the reference you made to Jos. A Banks to Banks. I had no idea I'd bypassed your intellectual level when I did so.

    BTW you did know your Jos. A Banks was also an abbreviation for Joseph A Banks?

    Note to Golden - - - careful with your posts - - - - this guy is a definite JCP plant - - - - - - and I don't mean the potted kind, although the IQ's might be similiar

    Re: your sales tax allegations - - - - I posted this previously and still wonder if it is a tax collected and not paid?

    A question I always asked about was that "sales tax" was charged on catalog orders on the "shipping and handling" portion- - - - - other merchants in our state added the sales tax to the merchandise before they added the non-taxed "freight" charges.

    First, the KSS lawsuit is still ongoing - - - - so you can't dismiss the JCP lawsuit on that ground - - - - - the Banks lawsuits were of a totally different substance than the JCP lawsuit - - - - so you can't dismiss the JCP lawsuit on that ground - - - - so when it comes to comparing apples to apples, that argument comes up lacking.

    What makes the JCPenney lawsuit unique and different from the others is the fact that it has already been proven that your CEO at the time "intentionally requested manufacturers to create phoney/fake prices for the exclusive idea of marking them down to create a fake sales price" - - - - - the other examples your erroneously attempt to paint with the same brush, did not do this.

    This lawsuit is very far from being removed from anyone's radar and your allusion that a one day PPS was unaffected is proof that the suit is a flash in the pan is just silly

    JCPenney probably will not cave, although they should ----- and even under your pie in the sky rose colored glasses scenario - - - - - there will be a financial cost to JCP and at a time where that's the last thing they need. Only amoron would think otherwise.

    JCPenney CEO Ron Johnson (above) is reportedly asking vendors to conjure up phony retail markups in order to make prices seem lower at the one-time respectable department store chain.

    New York Post - - - January 24, 2013

    Fake prices are coming back at JCPenney, and this time they’ll be more fake than ever.

    In a fresh bid to highlight Penney’s prices as low, CEO Ron Johnson is pushing some manufacturers to concoct phony suggested retail markups for their clothing, sources told The Post.

    The plan, insiders say, includes erecting signs and fixtures that will display the sometimes made-up retail prices, while tagging the clothes and accessories themselves with Penney’s own lower prices.

    “They want to have a table of sweaters with a sign saying ‘regular price, $30,’ and the price tag will be $22,’” one source told The Post in a hypothetical example.

    Perhaps he can tell us where they're going to get the 600(?) million from they're going to lose this year - - - - - - - I'm willing to bet somebody cares about that(banks, vendors, etc) - - - - - - - - - that would be most of the cash they currently have, and still have to buy all that inventory for the next holiday season(if they make it that long)

    Well, old friend, glad to see you're still around - - - - - - in God's waiting room I presume - - - - - I seldom check in here anymore unless something catches my eye in the news - - - lately the only two things that caught my attention was how our posters are always claiming lines at the registers are 10-15 deep and stores are sooooooooooo busy and then Target puts out a Lilly Pulitzer limited edition - - - THEN, every evening newscast, showing actual paying customers lined up around the block - - - - - and it's a total sellout - - - - - - and the best JCPenney comes up with is an accidental sales figure leak of some severely massaged 1Q sales numbers - - - - - - they just can't seem to help themselves - - - - - - - - snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    You wouldn't be able to give us your store and associate number, now would you - - - - - I'm sure JCPenney would love to find out what a loyal, caring, warrior they have on their payroll.

    My, my, my - - - - you are the dense one aren't you? - - - - - I haven't a clue as to why they or any other store haven't been challenged - - - - - - the law is there in plain black and white for any intelligent person to read for themselves - - - - perhaps that's your problem - - - - - maybe you should ask the appropriate State's Attorneys - - - - - either that or dredge up another subject to garner attention - - - - - - that is your primary desire, isn't it - - - - - I mean, no one, not even your real ID is that stupid.

    Any further discussion with you on this subject is terminated - - - you've made it obvious your desire is not any real information exchange but rather just "stirrin da pot"

    Hey retayl101, I know you think of yourself as a retail genius but you fail to understand how JCPenney and other retailers do not break the law.
    ///////////////////////////////////////

    You've been given the links and quoted the law - - - your obstinance after those facts is intentional and serves no purpose other than playing a childish game - - - but then again, I'm sure that pretty much fits the rest of your life.

    As far as "leaving it up to me to figure out" - - - - - that can be construed as "you don't have a clue what anyone is talking about and think a carefully ensconced answer will make you appear smarter than you are".

    It's been explained to him/his ID's - - - - - many many times, exactly what and why, how JCPenney's pricing is in violation of both State and Federal laws - - - - - - The fact the laws haven't been enforced doesn't mean they don't exist - - - - he's just using one of his ID's in an attempt to instigate - - - - - - all of the other stores I'm aware of engage in the exact same practices - - - - -

    He would rally be in trouble if they enforced all the laws on the books - - - - - - - - - In his home state it's illegal for three or more people to be together and conceal their identity.
    Circa 1845.....

    In all fairness I don't know if they mean three people having fake ID's or one person having three ID's

    I'm neither pro or con re: Goldenboy or his positon- - - - - - - but I do have to note your irritation level seems to be a little abnormally over the top on the subject - - - - - are you just upset this might have an adverse effect on your share holdings or is it something deeper?

    That's probably the lamest defense I've ever seen.

    You would lose any case before any court in the land if you broached that as your defense. Even JCPenney isn't stupid enough to postulate such a position. You're on your own on that one, buddy!

    I'm going to guess the rest of your post is probably as FOS as your first sentence - - - - - - since I don't seem to have retired at all - - - - - so, can we all safely assume the rest of your post is as accurate?

    I'm just guessing, but will bet you just got confused on which things you do "single-handedly"(check your spelling)

    Probably true, but that could be at 12 dollars or .12 cents - - - - - if you're hanging your hat on a short squeeze to rescue a long position, this is the wrong company to test that thesis - - - I believe that's referred to the "wish" method of investing

  • and raising employee wages - - - - - - - - - - how long will it be before JCPenney follows suit and adds to their already heavy expense level - - - - you know, the expenses they're trying to cut!

    I am new to this board and have read over some of the past postings. I am thinking of buying into the Catalog Merchant program but don't see any discussion on this board. We are in a small town in the Midwest. Does anyone have any insights or advice regarding this program. Thank you.
