This kinda news is very bad for penneys:(

Yep the store manager blew it:( and needs a few days off without pay so it never happens again.... Other managers will hear about the punishment:) and decide being dumb isnt worth the risk:( with morale so low that may have contribuited to the problem.  (May 12, 2013 | post #6)

I went shopping at Penneys today at Ross Park Mall near p...

The store is still being renovated. Whats complete looks brite and nice, and there appears to be more merchandise out than the last time I was there. I really question penneys selling 5 grand leather sofas....... I saw one nice associate from the mens department. I told him I returned since the IDIOT CEO was finally fired. He said please come back again.. I appeared they added more registers since I was there last but cant be sure with the construction. I saw no one using libbys, the store had a encouraging number of shoppers but I dont know how many were buying stuff. While I would LOVE to see Ackman loose his shirt and hedgefund I hope Penneys survives. I do believe and told the associates I saw I think the JCP logo should go and be replaced with PENNEYS. JCP stands for absolute failure. I bought a clearnce tie tonight, my puppy jack had got ahold of the one that goes with my red dress shirt and ripped it to shreds:( Jack belies his name is NO JACK:) since he hears it so often.  (May 10, 2013 | post #1)

Whoever made the mistake of not taking care of the CUSTOMER needs to be made a example of themselves. penneys really doesnt need any more bad press!  (May 10, 2013 | post #4)

This kinda news is very bad for penneys:(

J.C. Penney may want to remind itself of its slogan, “every day matters,” after selling a defective engagement ring that prevented a bride-to-be from wearing it for months. The retailer allegedly refused to refund or replace the ring given to Loraine Verduzco of Escalon, California, by her fiance Gaylord until after the couple notified local news station CBS 13, the network reports. That’s despite the fact that the ring was reportedly purchased with a lifetime warrantee and the store had admitted that the ring was defective Ullman should intervene and give the customer something far bigger than a token $ penneys REALLY doesnt need more complaints, whoever denied the warranty claim needs a few days off with no pay.  (May 9, 2013 | post #2)

What Will We Learn From Ron Johnson's Mistake?

The REAL lesson, hedge fund managers are not retailers and never will be.... I hope penneys survives, but theres a part of me that wants to see Penneys go down in red ink flames, so Ackman looses his shirt. Such a grand failure will keep future hedge fund financiers OUT of retail, for fear of ron johnsoning another company... Ron killed JCP quickly, while eddie lampert at sears has milked all the bucks out of sears / k mart. Their stores look like a trash dump, so eddie can keep more money in his pocket. Both of these IDIOTS need major failures so others like them quit killing companies. Still I very much HOPE penneys survives! But ron should of been fired at least 6 months earlier. Or ideally never hired at all!  (May 8, 2013 | post #2)

well overall sales were contiuning to drop, even as compared to last years under rons management. Do YOU believe rons numbers for specialty shops? Any JCP I was in had the speciaity shops, very nice looking, but with few buyers. I suspect rons speciality shop sales increase per square foot were a outright lie..... Perhaps one store somewhere had such a grand increase. Or ron paid people to shop that one store to make numbers meet his predictions.. In any case the speciality shops in my area were never busy when I was there. Currently I have little time or energy for much of anything. My step sister died, another is seriously ill, my girl friend lost her job, a good friend Who I became buddies with around 1975 is very ill and may have to go to a nursing home, he currently cant walk after a stroke. His 2 sisters depended on him, so we have been helping out neither sister drives, my girl friends son is in 12 grade with senioritis, dont know if he will graduate physically he is attending class mentally he must be on vacation. Life is tough right now. So I havent had much time for anything but essentials.  (May 8, 2013 | post #64)

Midday movers: JC Penney, Herbalife

All emloyees could be REQUIRED to wear a tracker or carry a libby all all times.. The records would be instantly available showing where all employees were every minute, and combided with time stamps on security cameras what every employee is doing..... Big brother YES, better managed store YES YES YES!  (May 7, 2013 | post #12)

Well the last quarters sales report in, sales slide slowed to only 17%.... so all these reports of stores busy must of been wishful thinking I hope Penneys recovers but if they do it will be a miracle:(  (May 7, 2013 | post #62)

while I would love to see Ackmans hedge fund bankrupt:) Ending the hedge funds trying to run retailers, where woud that leave all the loyal hard working ld penneys employees? have a little heart, the top management and ackman were fools, but dont look at putting penneys out of business as a good thing... There are still 15,000 or so remaining penneys workers plus all their suppliers, to say nothing of areas where penneys is the only store. Penneys if it survives will be a miracle, why make it impossible?  (May 4, 2013 | post #2)

JC Penney to Customers: Please Come Back

The damage ron did is likely not recoverable:( to cover their fixed costs much of the lost business must return. One the one hand I would love to see Ackman lose much of his investment:) However I would feel bad for the remaining original employees and stockholders. I think penneys adds should suggest customers return we will try to rehire as many original employees as possible. The JCP logo should be removed from everything. its still around but appears to be on its way out:) I think all the board members who waited way to long to fire Ron should resign.  (May 3, 2013 | post #5)

OK so they Let Mr Johnson go!!!!!

Lots of customers like myself got mad at JCP ............ Apologizing is a wonderful thing and besides they have nothing to loose. penneys survival is on the line so its best to leave no stone unturned during this hopefully recovery time. penneys must increase associates hours to make customer service available again. Along with bringing back favorite brands:) its more than just sales and coupons! The sad thing about all this if Ron had one testing in selected markets none of this wold of occured....... Wonder how long till a movie comes out? Crackpot CEO kills company he was hired to improve:( The movie will likely wait till the survival of penneys is decided.....  (May 3, 2013 | post #47)

Ron did stuff on the cheap:( Why have a 1300 store chain and try to avoid building code laws? not pay contractors? Over christmas I was at the new penneys in monroeville PA, a customer wanted to use a credit card but told the associate not the hand held thing. the associate tried to force the libby. The customer walked away going to look for a register, I really dont know since I was headed out the door at the time. Associates have psted here they were underer pressure to use libbys, no ne should force a CUSTOMER to do anything!  (May 2, 2013 | post #56)
