VvonderJesus: Johnny, what can you make of this?
flaminio: Done in one.
JohnAnnArbor: That one-year CEO-ship will be written about for decades as a complete failure.
wiseolddude: Albertsons grocery stores in my area are now starting not having sales, but everyday low prices. Some prices are okay, but other store sale prices are lower than theirs. They must not have got that memo from JC Penny.
Lamadin: I got a $50 gift card for Penney's about a year ago. Looked all through the store and their website, could not find a SINGLE thing I wanted anywhere near that price.Store is famous for overpriced, useless junk.
profplump: A company tried to make their pricing model more transparent and less capricious. We met them with ridicule and reduced patronage. I'm not sure JC Penney is the party that should be feeling dumb here, at least not until they backed down.
msupf: I have been in once since they reverted to the normal sale model.Farking hated it. Stuff was steeply marked up from what it had been previously, and then the 'half off' sale price was still higher than what the original 'square deal' pricing had been.Not going back anytime soon after seeing that first hand.
oukewldave: I used to buy all my clothes from their clearance section of the website. Good polo shirts for like 8-11$. Then they did this remodel thing and now everything is jacked up by 40%. Gotta find a new place for cheap clothes...
12349876: Stupid ass customers. I never consciously look at a % off sign or retail price at a clothing store. I look at the selling price and base my decision off that.
Dinjiin: By my late 20s, I figured out that most sales were scams.
