J.C. Penney (JCP +4.4%) shares power higher after the retailer rolls out its second round of shops as part of CEO Ron Johnson's transformation, as Liz Clairborne, IZOD for men and jcp brand shops (one each for men and women) will officially launch Sept. 1. Nearly 100 such shops are planned to be included within its stores over the next few years.

    Does this mean that JCP will now have Liz Clayborne and IZOD and be the exclusive seller of these brands and the consumer will not be able to buy these brands at the dozens of other retailers who have been selling these brands for years? Is that why the stock is up over 1 dollar today? If Ron Johnson released a presser that the earth is really flat would all of these JCP stock buyers run to the edge? I think so. Old worn out JCP in the old worn out Malls.

    I don't know, the JCP store I just shopped in looked great, not worn out. The new shop concept they had for Levi's was beautiful, and plenty of great merchandise. If they all roll out so nicely, all the naysayers might start singing a new tune! My money (and I own stock) is on this baby turning out really well!

    So Far Ron Johnson seems to be as good as his word. Now if he can show his customers that the new JCP store plan will have fine customer service, quality merchandise and honest everyday prices he will succeed in a turnaround! His job is far from over but it is amazing to see that there is already a positive side to his work. I won't be surprised to read that the stock market will show this for some months to come.

    These shops are just the teasers to get exclusive lines easier. They have already announced 20-30 exclusive brands that are getting ready to launch. RON Johnson has said that the target is 75% exclusive lines by the end

    I just wonder how many of the JCP defenders know what a VALUE TRAP is. Biggest sucker play that wipes out millions of unaware stock investors annually. Might want to read John Maxfields article at Yahoo Finance JCP. THE BIGGEST VALUE TRAP IN RETAIL. Posted today 8/29/12. This is where the pros clean the amateurs clocks for them.
