Because bringing in somebody from Apple was the best idea the company ever had, they never had sales on their overpriced stuff, so neither should JCP

If you are referencing a campfire skit I learned in Cub Scouts, then not obscure at all!

This thread reminds me of the time I had to sell my almost-complete set of Indian pennies I'd been collecting since I was a kid because I was broke as fark.

The problem is you're called Pennies. That name has no value. The people wouldn't bend to pick up your namesake.

That's the one. The "nothing is obscure on Fark" maxim lives on.

see, I actually really liked the pricing structure he brought. Why? Because the price of the items was ator lower than the occasional 50% sales. People were just too fricken stupid to notice.

I recently went into JCP to look for some more shirts (one of the few places that carries decent quality Tall shirts at what used to be a decent price). They had sales and they had coupons, and stuff was marked down 40-50% yet those sales prices were HIGHER than the old square deal prices. I even peeled back the old price tags on some of the shirts to verify it for myself. Sure enough, a shirt that was $25 before reverting pricing schemes was marked up to $65, and temporarily in sale for 50% off that. It was now more expensive on markdown than it was at regular price several months ago at the beginning of the season.

FARK that noise. I, and many other men, liked that square deal pricing structure, and it showed. Men's clothing always had guys shopping it, and there was rarely any clearance left over. Now, the shops are a ghost town, and the racks jammed with clearance items that are still more expensive than what they were a few months ago.

Most women like a good sale (50%!!!!) even if it cross them a little bit extra.

yeap, that skit does well too.  Just need to find a confident kid willing to walk across stage wearing just a towel (shorts on underneath of course) to pull it off.

So put the women's stuff on sale and the men's stuff not on sale. Everyone understands women's stuff cost more anyways. :P

They should have given the Apple guy more time to revamp their retail and their customers more time to "get it". Make a few tweaks here and there, as feedback comes in, but stick with your vision and don't knuckle under for your customers, they are fickle and if you try to beat your competitors on price you are stuck competing against Amazon, which will ultimately crush you.

I used to shop there about 15 years ago. I need extra tall shirts, so I got them there. Now many more stores carry shirts for extra tall people, so there is no reason to shop there.

I used to buy all my clothes, especially polo shirts for work, at jcp.com in clearance.  Could get decent ones for 8-10$.  Now, I haven't seen them less than 16-18$.   I won't buy them anymore.  And I really need some new shirts!...

It's basically the Kohl's model.  During the week everything is at full MSRP, which is actually double the real value, but on the weekend things are 50% off and at their actual value sale price.
