  • J.C. Penney's (JCP +6.3%) move to add manufacturers suggested retail prices alongside its own sale prices could help boost sales, according to analysts. Though it seems like a bit like a lesson from Retail 101, for close to a year the visibility for consumers on where JCP's prices stood in relation to rivals was as thick as London fog. [View news story]
    AND the big reason for the Libby's? Ron Johnson used to work for Apple, the Libby's are Apples, JCP has a contract with Apple for the Libby's? Enough Said!

    They R counting on U wanting the receipt emailed to U, that way U don't have to walk to a register to get your receipt. That's not what most people will want, they're gonna want their receipts. This "Libby" thing is not going to last, it's a bad idea!

  • Can Sales Bring Back Shoppers And Investors To J.C. Penney? [View article]
    Why is the failure of the new pricing the fault of "idiot" women. The new pricing was brought on by Ron Johnson, who is a man! Just wait til they take out all the cash registers & try to check people out on IPods that don't work half the time. People will be leaving JCP in droves! He still thinks he's at Apple! This is retail Ron; people are more interested in sales, coupons, good customer service, not how neat it is to check out on an IPod, that you can't use for checks or cash or refunds cause then that means sending the customer to another area to check out! Yeah, right, that's gonna work! Women know how to shop, maybe Johnson needs replaced & quickly before he does any more damage!

    So right, & then there are the "Libby's" that only work in certain areas of the store. Like satellite dishes, I guess we tell all the customers we have to turn them toward the northeast before we can check them out. And after you use them for half a day, they have to be recharged! Try telling a customer to wait while you go get another Libby! See, Ron Johnson has a contract with guess who? You got it - Apple!

    And then there's the doing away with registers & checking people out on IPods, which of course can't be used for returns or cash. There's no place to set items down to scan them, just put them down wherever the associates happen to be. It will be a diaster trying to bag a boatload of items. And what about the big items, i.e. curtain rods, household appliances, luggage, etc. This Johnson guy is more about technology than retail. I'd like to see him try to check people out on an IPod on a busy Saturday! He just doesn't get it!
