JC Penney Possibly Closing

JCPenny is high end retail for most Oneida county residents who buy their clothes at Walmart or get them from the Salvation Army or the clothes banks. Their not doing enough business and this is why they are closing. It's a shame because we need the jobs and the private investment. This wouldn't be the case if local people weren't so poo and so cheap.

used to work there until they started changing there guidelines and forcing out many employees. ill never shop there again since then and besides, the retail is pricy and consumers want sales and weekly coupons.

I bought a suit at JCPenny for $125 and it came apart at the seams less than two months later.

Macy's is an overkill. I don't think they give you great deals - coupon or no coupon. Everybody knows they mark up everything. Just to be clear it's not that I can't afford to shop there, I think they are a rip-off.
Macy's is over-rated at best! But, it's one of Utica's premiere stores.

Sadly I walked away from Penney's a year ago. Just didn't agree with the changes, and it seemed they were bringing in closeout merchandise.

I also have worked there as a part time job and was told to leave because positions were being eliminated. Best thing that ever happened to me because they are slowly sinking anyway

Not true. It's a national wide problem for this store. Not just Oneida countys. There are articles online everywhere about how poorly the company as a whole is doing since a new head manager took over last winter with his so called brilliant ideas.

I hope you at least got a funeral or two out of it.

Even if merchandise is marked up people still like to think they are getting a good deal with the coupons & sales. Penneys did away with that & that's when they began to fail. it will be closed after Christmas sadly.

It doesn't look good for them, but there is always someone looking to buy. Never know who might just step in. Either way they need to change directions.
