Looks like Wisconsin took a hit with five of the stores being closed.

“Christmas sales were a disaster because of the Obamacare dividend.”

***

Correct. But neither the stores nor the media will admit this.

Retailers all have suffered under the Obama regime. Obamacare is just another nail in the coffin.

They changed the CEO, I bet they are still one of the biggest pro-homo companies in America

I will never shop there again

I really like the employees at my store too. I haven’t spoken to them about the homosexual topic, but I am glad to know they aren’t targeting the “alternate lifestyles” crowd anymore.

So they filed moral Bankruptcy in 2010 and headed straight for financial bankruptcy in 2014/2015? that will make a great economic case study for an undergrad in the near future.

I could almost swear that just last week I heard MACY’s was also laying off employees, 2500, I believe.

If it weren’t for the NW corner of Indiana + the ghetto of Indianapolis rotting at the state’s core, IN would be STAUNCH red EVERY election...(even though we are more red than blue in recent history)

A friend wanted some underwear for Christmas. He likes the Stafford brand sold at Penneys.

Did not want to go into the store so ordered them online.

Out of the three packets, two had been unpacked and sloppily put back together.No time to send them back, but will never do that again.

I am glad my local store is not closing. It is the only place in my small town where I can buy big and tall clothing for my son. I went there right after Thanksgiving. The salespeople were neat, friendly, and couldn’t do enough for us. The merchandise was orderly and well-stocked. Sale prices were great. It was the best shopping experience I have had in a long time. I went back again before Christmas and once after. (My experience at that store has not always been that good.) Local management can have a huge impact. I did not shop there under Johnson, but JC Penney admitted they made mistakes. I won’t perpetually punish a good local business that employs my neighbors because of an idiotic CEO.

An advertisement showing two homosexual men pretending to be "married" while holding onto a small boy. Just a great idea to get support from middle America.

"First Pals: What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver--all rolled into one. Or two." The text at the bottom right reads: "Real-life dads, Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children Claire and Mason."

Have not entered a JC Penneys store since they took the gay agenda stance.

“How much of the 2% of the population which is thrilled with their endorsement of their agenda actually shop at JC Penney?”

Yes, that’s what I thought at the time. I’d think about zero percent. 0% of 2% = ZERO!

They should market to the gay crowd. I bet it would payoff huge!
