    Buster Wilson (AFA) will probably blame it on the "I Shipped My Pants!" ad blitz. icon_razz.gif #dontmockjesus

    Yeah around here Burlington Mall built in 1982 is very much struggling and it will only leave Macy's as a major there!

    The former CEO didn't help matters much, JC Penney was already struggling, but he came in and made some poor decisions that compounded the problems.

    I'm not surprised. JCP has been struggling for years.
    They had a business model that wasn't working, so they hired a new CEO who made good changes for the company, but he got fired and now JCP is back to rolling downhill.

    Those changes cheapened the store even further. Or at least where I live. I think the statistic I heard was a drip in sales of 40% in one quarter. It was insane. That's why that CEO was fired.

    Does anyone else make an undershirt that's long enough for tall guys? The JCP Stafford undershirt comes in regular, tall, and extra tall. I buy the extra tall and after many years of washing and drying (on medium or high) they're still long enough. Everything else that I have that's all cotton shrinks and gets too short, except for my Levis, which I get in 40 inch length.

    Back to the topic, it makes me wonder what the success factors are for a department store, other than stocking the stuff that everyone wants to buy.
