A report of a new hire by J.C. Penney (JCP +5.6%) helps kickstart a rally in shares and bring some buyers back into the fold. The retailer landed Abercrombie & Fitch exec Bradon Tonniges to help with store design and layout, according to Bloomberg. The exec was one of the brains behind the transition of Abercrombie stores into a dark nightclub atmosphere.

    Oh goody, more mannequins on the horizon but now maybe a dark atmosphere just after the current upgrades of all the new, bright lighting.

    Is it true they are hiring ex club doorman and are roping off the entrances and only letting in I phone owners or dumb hedge funders?

    George, I have to agree with you on this one, but of course, just because he made his former company's atmosphere dark doesn't mean he would copy that same approach at jcp. Creative people do different things.
