I too remember jcp as the go to place for back to school shopping, I followed my Mom’s example with my own kids. And don’t forget the catalogs that would arrive in the fall and spring along with the special Christmas issue. I miss the America of my youth.
I especially miss the Sears catalog.
I tried to shop for our kids’ school clothes at JCP but the only year we ever found anything was when the store had everything on sale during a major remodel. I finally gave up on them when we found Kohl’s which beats any store on dirt cheap prices and their large selection makes it a one stop shopping day and you’re done.
