Joe Fresh is just another waste of the company's money. It's like Liz Claiborne, Alfred Dunner, and the jcp shop all had a very ugly baby. It runs really big and is just a bad patch on a very big hole. Totally not impressed.

I think it's hilarious that MoRon is so desperate for shop concepts in JCPenney's stores that he thought it was a good idea to bring a brand of clothing that is sold in Canada in A SUPERMARKET CHAIN'S STORES (Loblaw's) into JCPenney. I'd get it if Target had done that, but MoRon was so dead set on getting these great name brands that the customer knew into the stores. Well, at least he got one of Canada's most beloved private label brands. I thought JCPenney was supposed to be going after national brand names and designers? I'm confused... What's the direction being taken again? Wow... Takes me back to an awful time working in the ridiculousness that is JCP (Johnson's Costly Problem). MoRon is such a whiny, sniveling little b**ch a** patsy that the best thing he could do right now is leave on his own and send in a man to clean up the mess the little Ivy League educated boy has created. Here in Dallas if you mention JCPenney, MoRon Johnson's name is always the punchline associated with it.

What is so funny is the Walmart in-house brand George is more popular in Canada then Joe Fresh, gee I keep wanting to type Go Fish, but I digress. What an upscale place JCP is. Eyeball those designer products and beware, Target has them, called "Limited Edition", at JCP, "made for", as in made to a price point. I have noticed the stuff at Target doesn't sell well, preteen, early teen dress $120. They do mark them down to $60 something to move them. I really thing that stuff is just placed in a Target as cheap advertising, they do not expect to sell this stuff at the asking price, the thinking is sprinkle a few items like this in a store you get people thinking they are in an upscale store, in reality they are in a Walmart clone. Look around, TVs, bicycle, shoes, most of the clothing outside "Limited Edition", it is the same store, moving groceries into them kind of puts the lid on it.

Ron the JCP Clown next gig should be at Mickey D's, not in charge of it, out front in the parking lot suited up, he just missed his real calling.

Somehow Ron would mess that up also.
