Seeking alpha is largely biased encouraging positive comments about JCP & RJ and banning people who post negatives about the company. everyday low prices cant work since to maintain profits the everday low prices cant be as low as other companies sale prices, since the other companies still sell stuff at full retail. plus JCP is not apple and never will be. The penneys branded merchandise could sell for less then other companies brands where martha stewart rakes off a percentage of the profits for the name. Has any other retailer ever had as large as sales drop and survived? I dubt it. If RJ continues running JCP the company will be liquidated for real estate value and rons golden parachute will richly reward him:(

I feel bad for the remaining long term employees of penneys. Its terrible to work for a company going out of business, been there done that in 1984
