dislike jc penney

No one I know (at least, anyone over the age of 30) likes the revamped JC Penney. The store changed its advertising and selling models in late 2011.
The clothing has odd colors and shapes that look good on no one. The sales catalogs that are sent in the mail or included with the Sunday newspapers are unattractively designed, even hard on the eyes. The old huge JC Penney catalogs that you got for the fall and winter, spring and summer, and for Christmas are long gone.
I have read numerous times that the chain is really struggling. It's not because of the economy, but rather because of its pricing and its merchandise.
I used to love JC Penney clothing but haven't bought anything there for more than a year now.

P.S. I realize that huge catalogs are passe', that they are environmentally unfriendly and you can buy all the merchandise online now, but I still miss paging through them.

I love them.

They are the one store I can go into and shop for tee shirts, polo's, jeans and dress pants. They have sizes to hit my Fluffy butt and my fluffy belly. I don't see the use in a catalog anymore shoot I don't see the need to news paper or news paper adds. All the news I could ever want to read is on line for FREE. I would rater get adverts in my email than in my mail.

None of my cloths are odd color or shape. I dunno. I like them and give them an A+....

I like Penneys, but they are struggling financially. They may not survive much longer.

NBC News had an article about JC Penney on April 9. This is a link to the comments (including mine).
