Courtesy of JCPennyAt the beginning of Ron Johnson's short-lived but infamous reign as JCPenney CEO in January 2012, he unveiled a logo that completely rebranded the company as JCP.
It was its third in as many years.
Following Johnson's dismissal, a result of losing $43 billion in sales and isolating loyal customers with its new business approach, JCPenney has made a concerted effort to go back to the good old days.
Although the square shaped logo — representing the retailer's "fair and square pricing" — still graces the company's website, we've started noticing that a new logo that fully spells out the company's name has begun to appear in various promotional packages:
That's right, as we noted last week, the company nixed the only thing that Johnson successfully changed.
But is the quiet change a good idea?
JCPenney hasn't formally announced a logo change and didn't return our emails for confirmation, but given its recent apology tour and dedication to bring back positive old store elements in its new chapter, the change certainly makes logical sense.
Tell us what you think of the change in the comments.
