I love the no coupons at JCPenney. I always use to forget the coupon at home or bring it on the incorrect date. Coupon people have nothing better to do but to clip paper.
I researched an iron recently. Bought it at JCPenney because price was cheaper than buying at Amazon.
You should give the customers 5% discount for using JCPenney card like Target and more people would shop there.
Have commercials about ladies leaving coupons at home and missing the sales.
I hope improves sales because I would hate to have to go back to those coupons.

frankly i loved the 15% off return customer coupon. I hope sales continue to tank, in the hopes whoever replaces ron at the helm decides to bring back CUSTOMER SERVICE!

I wouldnt return as long as ron IDIOT is at the helm! They can offer coupons but customer service stinks, the replacement associates dont know what they are doing, pushing the gay agenda offended me, poor selection of plus size clothes and no inventory. I a lifetime penneys shopper now buys at KOHLS. Thanks ron your changes got me test shopping everywhere else.

Ron sent most of his customers a strong message, JCP does NOT want you as a customer.

frankly I HOPE sales continue to tank so bad ron gets fired, since he richly deserves it.

I shopped penneys for customer service, nice merchandise at fair prices. Ron destroyed my favorite store.

I didnt mind ellen, it was those front pages of gay couples that initially turned me OFF to penneys.

Kohls buy the way offeres all sorts of promos:) I bought a couple shirts initially and ended up spending over 600 bucks before I was thru... all excellent merchandise at very good prices.

The REAL SUCKER is JCP and Ackman, making ron the 3rd highest paid CEO in america to destroy the brand and the company. Ron hasnt maid a single change I like.....

his cut costs at all costs gutted customer service. he could go back to the old model that had record profits in 2010 and i doubt he will see much of a rebound in sales.

name calling isnt really necessary....... but since you started it. Ron how does it feel to be one of the most hated men in america today?
because Ron offended, in one form or another a large percentage of his customers, and literally forcedv them to shop elsewhere.
futher ron claimed there was no time to test market his crackpot ideas, if he had most would of never seen the light of day:)

The irony in the whole gay agenda theme is that the average "gay couple" would not even consider shopping in JCP...Statistics show that many gay people tend to be higher wage earners and would be more likely at retailers such as: Macy's, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's and so on...In other words Ron tried to appeal to a demographic that would not be interested in shopping at JCP no matter what the changes were and alienated the demographic that kept the venerable chain thriving....looks like he forgot the "Golden Rule"

You sound like one of those Fandroid morons who hates everything Apple does... and since Ron Johnson worked at Apple... it's all H8 against Ron and homosexuals.

Why not just admit you've slept with your cousin and be done with it?

I never heard of ron johnson till he got hired by penneys and destroyed it. I never bought a apple anything except apples to eat. I base my postings on what ron has done to what was my favorite store.

1. I don't believe you.

2. Why did JCP hire Ron Johnson? Because JCPenney was doing so well? Was that it?

JC Penney had record profits in 2010, hurt only by the increasing cost of cotton in 2011. Penneys got greedy, and its come back to bite them bad. Ron was the wrong person for CEO. It was a success as it was. certinally rons crackpot ideas should of been test marketed before commiting the entire chain.

Incidently calling me a liar isnt really very nice espically since what I posted is TRUE!

Ron wanted to cut costs by elminating sales.... changing marked price costs big bucks....

while he could of put computerized price signs on most merchandise displays, put price checker devices all thru the stores, and run specials at will no remarking needed. in fact they could run mystery specials daily by just sending out a wi fi signal to various electronic price signs on displays, which could increase store traffic looking for todays bargain...

JCP Fan theres no reason to get nasty. The proof is in the sucky fiancial numbers coming from JCP

Honestly I have never bought a apple product other than some real apples at the grocery store:)

Actually my cousin is drop dead gorgeous but no action there........

Wonder what it feels like to be ron Johnson?? Probably a shock that he isnt gods gift to retail...
