Somethings up at J.C. Penney.
After the closing bell, the department-store operator announced President Michael Francis was leaving, effective today, after only eight months on the job.
Shares dropped 6.5% in after-hours trading to $22.75 in after-hours trading. The stock is down nearly 50% since early February.

Ellen Degenerates is next...
Faggotry is bad for business.
I only saw her on 1 or 2 ads and that was early on when she signed up for the advertising they were stupid ads too. Come to think of it I have not seen any Pennys ads for about 2 weeks.
what’s the problem ,everyone thought the ads were gay( old gay )
They should have known from the start that for fags going to Penney’s would be like slumming.
Oh that would be glorius if he was thrown out because
Americans are getting tired of BIG government and BIG corporations shoving sexual deviancy down our throats.
I can’t imagine it helped sales, that’s for sure.
Let’s hope she is.
No mention of a Mrs. Francis. That may be the problem.
Yeah I hear that tooo Jimbo I hear Ellen ads is not do too good there might be agreement that maybe didn’t work out Ellen get big pay check out of it
Ive talked to people who worked in Penneys
They hated him...
Guess I’ll make sure I wont be shopping at that heterophobic department store.
Back to Walmart for me where they sell guns, books about God and the workers are happy even though the democrats tell them they should not be.
Stay away from Target. It’s a liberal store. The only books they carry are Ellen and Michelle Obama. No God books and they call their Christmas Trees “holiday trees”.
Target banned the boy scouts from collecting money in front of the store but Walmart welcomes them.
It looks like J.C.Penney has lightened up of Francis!
Well the top JCP honcho is from Apple.
Is he a buddy of Tim Cook?
One thing you left off about Target: most anything they carry, Walmart has cheaper. (At least in my neck of Iowa/Illinois.)
FReepers aren’t allowed to shop at WM.
All their stuff is from China.
I kept a running log of all the places that FReepers aren’t allowed to shop.
It finally got down to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores.
Then somebody posted an anti-Catholic screed and we were totally out of business.
I hope they have to close their stores. Pity on their employees, but this is too much. Why not open a Faggot Only department store and then see how far it gets. Can't believe they corrupted this formerly fine department store.
I like JCP to shop. I rarely watch TV so I’ve never seen “gay ads” from them, but didn’t they begin a mktg strategy of “everyday low prices, no sales”? Was that Francis’ idea? The article doesn’t attribute his ousting to any particular thing, but I think that whole campaign pretty much backfired.
I’m sure he got a good severance package.
Some other PC company will pick him up on waivers.
Normal people don’t shop where the homosexual is the preferred customer.

Well my friend (she’s an avid christian) works for JCP and hate for her to lose her job. Let the gay loving management lose theirs instead. Old man Penney would be rolling in his grave to see this pervy nonsense come to his stores.
Guess the hate American families campaign didn’t work??
And there is no J.C.Penney store in San Fagsisco, certainly nowhere near the Queerland district there!
I was in Penneys last weekend. I had a gift card to spend.
First salesperson I ran into I asked
“Where’s the leather boutique?”-
She understood,and looked sympathic.
Smart businessmen avoid controversial social issues. This guy is a fool.
Well so much for the Christmas Carole “Deck The Halls” ....
Thanks for the info.
I guess I missed the gays ads. What were they?
So the Heterophobic Marketing Strategy didn’t work out so well? What a shock.
I really like JC Penny, too. I can get nicer (thicker) t-shirts for the fellas for a darn good price, many times better than the prices at Wally-world and they are of thicker material and better quality.
They have Dockers and such for a good price and it is cleaner than Wally World. Also, JCP is fantastic for low-cost drapes and such.
JC Penney President Mike Francis Came, Saw, Collected $10 Million, And Quit Nine Months Later
“Some other PC company will pick him up on waivers.”
Maybe SelectComfort. Since SCSS went all PC on Rush’s description of a whore as a whore, they’ve completely reorganized their marketing department. And their stock price is down about 25%.
“Faggotry is bad for business.”
I think it was a Rasmussen Poll that showed that only 2% - 3% of Americans are gay. (It seems like more because of their in-your-face militantism.) And 75% of Americans are opposed to homosexuality. You’d think this Penney exec would’ve done his due diligence before venturing on this theme. Nothing like pissing off 75% by catering to 2% of ‘em.
In the last catalog we got, there was a full two-page spread of boys/young men - about six of them. Not one caucasion in the bunch; all were black (maybe one/some Hispanic). Per Juan Williams, only about 8% of the population is black. Again... they’re catering to less than 10% of ut Americans.
How stupid IS this guy? No big shock they’re sinking like a rock.
I have always liked JCP because they are moderately priced and they have a Big and Tall section - anyone that doesn’t carry 2XLT is of no use to me. What I don’t understand though is that they do not carry mens’ underwear bigger than XL......are fat people supposed to go without drawers? I have to get them at Wally World.
Let’s see if they rethink the idea that pandering to 2% of the population (with a large chunk of the 2% that wouldn’t be caught dead in a JCP) is a fabulous plan....though they are probably just fishing for a bailout from the first queer president.
I guess all we have left are the Amish Shoppes in Lancaster, PA
Right, those guys strong-arm people into getting what they want, until the hype dies down and then they are gone! Typical liberal tactic!
That's funny that you mention that. I was with a friend (who looks just like Fred Flintstone with the personality & character of George on Seinfeld) when he went to JCP for the same reason. Big and Tall. He also complained that they don't sell the underwear.
You couldn’t think of a different metaphor in this case?! ;^)
It,s a GAY company now.......wouldn’t,t buy ANYTHING there.
(Won’t set foot in JCP since they hired Ellen Degenerate as a spokesman. And then to have this male homosexual ad at Father’s Day is just too much. JCP has spit in the face of American religious families with this crap.)
That is one reason I don’t shop at Penney’s plus, if you have been in a store lately, they look like a bargain basement store. My friend told about going to one over the weekend, she said they don’t intend to go back. Absolutely shoddy display of items.
They had T WO DADS for Father,s Day.....TWO mom,s for mothers Day.....YUK!!!!
