You've moved the big and tall area in Grand Rapids twice now, and downsized it. When America is getting fatter, your big and tall selection is getting smaller. Does that make any sense?
You've decided to also stop offering your own line of chinos, which I've purchased for years, in favor of Izod. That's a terrible mistake. I in no way need name brand cotton blend pants, I need ones that fit for a good price!
I've been a JCP customer for decades, and keep feeling like I'm treated worse and worse. Stop messing around and cater to the great middle class once more, which is your core clientele.

Went to pick up catalog order today and was pleased and excited to find the catalog department and pickup has returned! no more of having to wait in line at the register and then wait for the clerk to run back to get your order. Also pleased to see some of the old employees are back.

I'm petite and NOT 90 years old. Your petite section is PITIFUL!! I used to drive to a bigger store in N. Carolina and could always find something. NOW? The Made for Life activewear? No pants in Petite. None. Not in South or North Carolina store that I visited. This used to be my favorite store to shop in. Now its my LEAST favorite, cos I can NEVER find a thing in there anymore. And apparently I need on of those bras that everyone else is asking to bring back. THis store and its buyers and its marketing is going to cause JCPenny to collapse. Pitiful. If I wanted an upbeat --modern store that caters to young people--I'd go to AE or Aeropostle, etc. I don't care how the store looks--just bring back the clothing for those of us who USED TO BE dedicated shoppers to your store!!!!!!
Doesn't matter, Penny's doesn't care

I was looking around for the right size shoe today when a young lady, Destiny I do believe came and volunteered to help my search for my size. She looked and looked for a good 10 minutes, we then gave up. About 20 minutes later she then aproached me with my size shoe! She had went out of her way and got them off of a display manican! I was very pleased.

The first thing I read was that my opinion counts!! Well after reading a lot of these comments I see that I am not alone. But still no action has been taken to bring back the AMBRIELLE LINE OF BRAS!!! Women who are "blessed" find it extremely hard to find comfortable bras. We finally find one and it is taken away. Looks to me that JCPenney is losing a ton of $$$!!! Does anyone from JCPenney even read these comments??
11/29/2013 8:58:54 AM

I would like to make a coment and then a praise to jc penneys
to have your employees work on a day of thanks shows where you are really at nothing but a money greed driven store .
I was visiting a store for the first time in a long time since jc penneys was having trouble and to my surprise i met the greatest
sales person i have ever seen . he was from Sweden and we talked about everything and he made it so nice to shop he was so wonderful and when i asked about how he was going to celebrate thanksgiving he said to work but it was ok because he never had that before in Sweden so he was not really missing any thing but i felt bad because he and his wife were new to our country and this was a time for them to spend together to learn our ways shame on us as americans !!!! but i have to say if this man leaves jcpenney i will follow him his name was ROBIN at the HENDERSON STORE in N.V
please let him know my family is thinking about his and his on this day of thanks
THANK YOU ROBIN FOR EVERYTHING AND THEY GREATTTTTTT CUSTOMER SERVICE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME IF JCPENNEY HAD MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU THEY WOULD NOT HAVE THE PROBLEMS THEY HAVE

Ok I am also a fan of the Ambrielle bra. Since JC Penny on longer carrys this bra anymore. I decided to go try and find another brand of bra. There are tons of different brands, styles, colors etc... After a full day and many, many, many try ons. I came home empty handed. So very disappointing. I have alway had a hard time finding bras that fit and are comfortable. Till I found the Ambrielle!!! My size.is a 42DDD underwire. Please bring it back!!!! Looking at all the comments on this subject I believe it would be in JC Penny's best interest to bring this bra back. Please!!!!! I need bras.

Ambrielle bras are what draws me to JC Penney to shop. While stocking up on bras, I visit other departments for socks, kitchenwares, etc., and make the most of my special trip there. I certainly won't be drawn to JC Penney for the other stuff that I can be bought at Walmart or stores closer to home. Come on Penney's tempt us back to spend our $$$ by bringing back Ambrielle bras (especially the 36b t-shirt underwire bras in black and beige - hint, hint).

Well. It looks like I have to join the countless others who are saying goodbye to JC Penney because they are no longer carrying Ambrielle bras. I searched for the perfect bra for MANY years. When I found this brand, I knew my search was over, Ambrielle is truly the most perfect bra I've owned. I stocked up on them but now I need to buy more and I can't. It seems that JC Penney is well aware of the tremendous customer outcry and demand for this product, yet the company doesn't seem to care. That's a shame. So, I have no reason to bother going there any longer. Thank you for ignoring your customers...eventually the impact of conducting business in such a fashion (no pun intended haha) will take it's toll on your business. When you stop listening to the needs of your consumers, and lose sight of the fact that customer service IS your business, nothing positive can come of it...

I am Precious Levitte, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank Olorun for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found (Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com ) a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 3 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. Olorun released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I’m writing this testimony right now I’m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my fiance is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe.All thanks goes to Olorun for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. email him on; Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com

Bring back the old Arizona jeans.
After spending 34 years of my life in a career with JCP, I find it discouraging an absolutely the worst shopping experience EVERYTINE I shop there.
The merchandise inbox is far from adequate and the service is even worse.
And JCP has NO idea what' " made in America " is.....
I haven't been able to buy anything at JCPenney in 2 years.
>>> Blahhh, MPLS
11/10/2013 12:39:40 AM
I agree. The new Arizona jeans are complete junk. Loose fit was perfect fit for me. Slightly higher waist and slightly less loose than average jeans. Now they made the waist much bigger with the same hips. Very uncomfortable. Waist is lower, and that's before they sag. The stitching on the back pockets is very ugly. Feels like cheaper "denim" too. And it seems like half the time I go to Penny's, the price of an item is higher at the register than the signs indicated. :( :( :(

JCPenney use to be my very favorite place to shop, in person and on line, I loved the St. John's Bay brand and Cabin Creek, especially the stretch jeans without pockets. They had clothes for the plus size woman, now they cater to younger ones...wonder if they know it is the older women and Mother's with kids that shop there the most..when it was school time I always bought almost everything at JCPenney...now I rarely, rarely even shop there...twice since they changed.

I again tried JC Penny today for curtains and valences. What in the world happened. Not one valence on display !!! The clerk was able to find 2 in the storeroom, both nothing to speak of in terms of appearance. The clerk began to show me a book and catelog to look thru stating they will no longer carry the array of curtains they had in the past. You really blew it Pennys in this department. You had the best curtain department of all the stores that offered them. I have used your store for 30 yrs. to decorate my windows but no more. I have had similar experience with other products. I might also mention that the placement of your checkouts makes you carry your items all over the store and then wait because the few checkouts there are available are usually backed up with 2-3 customers on a quiet day. How disappointing that a business so rich in history fell pry someone's idea's that didn't do their homework on JC Penny customer needs. I'm done with JC Penny's.

I love St John's Bay fleece warm up pants. I wish JCP would either carry them in their stores or online. Both ways wouldn't be so bad for they would reach more people that way. This was a good product they sold, but nowif they can't sell them then no one can. These were great for they didn't have the drawstring. They were just normal sweats with pockets. Some even were cuffed and with pockets Someone else needs to pick up this clothing line and market it. Talk about profit turnover. .
11/3/2013 9:54:54 AM
I agree on the SBJ fleece sweat pant/shirts. Purchased several sets in 2010 and 2011 and have not seen them in 2012 or this season, 2013.
They were comfortable, washed well and had straight legs. Nice 2" elastic band (did have draw string as well). Many colors to choose from ... seasonal favorites.

I read here that JCP will again carry these in spring of 2014 but that is a long way off.......plus I fear that the company may not survive because they went too far off base before they came to their senses and canned the new CEO and disastrous new campaigns while discontinuing solid selling lines like St. John's Bay and Ambrielle. We baby boomers are a big group and still have purchasing power. Save your company and make your place known this Christmas shopping season!

I am very frustrated with JCPenney. Most of my favorite brands, from underwear to my favorite Cabin Creen pull-on Denim Blue Jeans are nowhere to be found at JCPenny. Instead, the racks are loaded with clothes geared to teens and young adults. Oh, the new CEO has tried to appease some of us by bring back some Cabin Creek pull-on pants, some "made to look like" denim jeans but are a poor substitute for "real denum jeans". I have been a loyal customer of JCPenny for over 40+ years. Apparently, to their new CEO, long time, loyal customers aren't worth keeping. I have seen a lot of complaints about the "new JCPenny". I feel like a good friend has died!! If this new CEO has any business sense at all, he will realize that long term, loyal customers are to be valued, if he intends for JCPenny to survive in this (or any) enconomy. Without that "solid" loyal customer base, JCPenny will just become another "dinosaur"! Gone forever!

I am a frequent buyer of Xersion activewear. I have noticed some horrible things as far as the pricing lately. One example is the singlet exercise tanks, they were regular priced at 6.00 less than a year ago. I have been watching the price steadily go up and they are now 20.00. REALLY.....how does JC Penny justify raising the price over 300 percent??? It also seems like they may be getting rid of the xersion line altogether........there is hardly anything at the store and when you go online to buy the Xersion brand there is very little. They discontinued the long bra tanks which so many people loved for the gym. I also have noticed that they carry so many different jeans but only three or four pair in each....usually small sizes. Yes they are laid out nicely on tables but this means nothing if you dont have the sizes people need. And the new JOE FRESH line is really poorly made......GO BACK TO THE BRANDS PEOPLE LOVE!!!!!!!!!What is going on? Are they on a mission to totally ruin the company. Hire some people who know what they are doing PLEASE! The only thing that would make sense is that they are taking away all the brands people love just to reintroduce them at a huge markup....thinking that people will pay any price for the things they want.......DON'T FALL FOR THIS!!!!!!

The new brands they carry are geared towards teens and are cheaply made. The tall sizes are no longer available. I'm sorry to say I've had to move on to Kohls and Macy's and so have my friends.

The quality of clothing has no doubt changed. I would like the Arizona gladiator sandals sold about 10-12 years ago which were made of good leather at a reasonable price.

I notice that the quality of clothing has ultimately changed. I personally am interested in repurchasing an older item, which was the tan gladiator sandals made by Arizona Brand, size 91/2.I was sold about 10 to 12 years ago, I believe.

I like JCP specifically due to the fact that they have Stafford shirts and ties, carry WIDE mens shoes and Dockers. I visited the JCP at Piqua, Oh and Fairfield Mall in Beavercreek, Oh within the past two days. The selection of Stafford shirt colors was limited at both locations and the shirts weren't organized well. For some reason, they also put Dockers pants on the other side of Mens, away from suits, dress shirts and ties--DUH! When i finally found them, the sizes were all in disarray! I must have gone through at least 85 pairs before i could find one 36-32 pair of pants in any color. After looking through more pants, i was able to find black, dark blue and tan. Unfortunately, i was interested in colors i didn't already have--gray and dark green but, they had none in my size. It was sad--i hate to shop and JCP is usually my holy grail but, it appears someone isn't thinking. It didn't make me any hapoier to stand in line for nearly 15 minutes to check out either. Oh--i tried to leave feedback on their site but, it doesn't work on an iPad.

Great news, girls!! I wrote to JCP thru FB and they answered me within a few hours. This is what I found out: Hi Laurie! I have some fantastic news! We are bringing Ambrielle back this coming Spring! So you can expect to see many items from the line in stores, as well as online ?? Have a great day! -Ella
Well, I am very relieved but wish it was this year! I hope they are just going to make them the same way they were before. The most comfortable bras I ever wore.

I've been trying to place an online order for a couple hours now. The problem is each time I use the store locator it sends me halfway across the country, nowhere near my hometown. First it was California, then Pennsylvania, now its directing me to pick up at a store in Texas! And it tells me I am only 1.5 (etc.) miles away from each of these. HAHA!

JCP has discontinued everything I used to purchase from them. I am 5'10" and they used to be the only place to find tall women's T-shirts -- specifically, the St. John's Bay brand -- and in 3/4 sleeve.
I used to pair these with skirts, etc. for work in the multinational corporation I am employeed by. No one else has anything comparable -- Eddie Bauer's don't fit -- they assume that everyone has narrow shoulders and hips. I am at a complete loss. The Avenue had some but they assume you have a bigger gut than most do. So, please JCP be useful again to us tall women shoppers -- bring back the quality and SJB tall women's T's.

JC Penney is no longer relevant. Their sales are no longer relevant. Why? Because they have lost consumer trust with their shady pricing practices and fake sales.
I just saw a TV ad for JCPenney. Ads are supposed to leave consumers with positive impressions of the brand. Instead, I saw a bunch of "40% off!" "50% off!" claims and it just pi**ed me off, because I know all that means is that JCP is at it again with their dishonest scam pricing schemes so that they can turn around and claim to have "Sales". Do they really think their customers are THAT stupid??? Worse, they've been exposed in one investigation after another, and they continue to perpetrate this fraud against the American consumer.
JC Penney is nothing but a complete fraud and a corporation of liars. No matter how much rebranding they do, no matter how many times they try to switch their target market, it won't change that fact. Perhaps that is why they are now going after the younger consumers: Younger consumers (not all, but most) aren't usually as in-touch with news and current events, but usually ARE much more gullible and susceptible to devious marketing schemes.
I hope JC Penney goes out of business. They deserve to.

I have shopped at JC Penney's for the last 20 years. I love JC Penney's because the price is right and you offer a quality product. I must say I was in shock when I was told you have discontinued the Ambrielle bras. They are a perfect fit and provide support even without uncomfortable wires. If you want to keep your loyal customers show you value them and bring Ambrielle bras back. It is the only bra I wear.

Apparently, the Ambrielle line was made exclusively for JC Penney's and has been discontinued.I stood there in the middle of the bra department at JC Penneys and cried. Please bring back the Ambrielle bra line back. I love JC Penneys but not all of your customers are 20 years old and weigh a hundred pounds. God bless.

They want customers back but have done away with one of the most popular items they carried. I have stopped shoppong there because of it....just get mad when I go in and no Ambrielle.

I am a long-time JCPenney customer and I am really saddened by the state that this company is in today! I used to find such wonderful products there, such as the ambrielle bra - which is the best fitting bra for me, and the curtains have been really shabby lately. Also the customer service at some of the stores have gone down hill especially when you are returning something. It makes me wonder when this store is closing because what they have in the store now is nothing but crap!!!

I felt the same way when I merrily strolled in JCPenny one day to grab my fav bra off the shelf, (without having to try them on because I knew how perfect they were and have been wearing them for years)I was petrified to hear they no longer carried Ambrielle brand after i hunted the lingerie area for a good while. I too felt a lump in my throat, and my eyes starting to swell. With my bra size its hard to find something that is comfortable, lasts long, affordable, and is flattering to my shape. Ive tried soo many other bras and nothing comes close to the fit, and the way they shape me. The other bras smash my boobs down, spreads them apart and makes cones out of them while feeling like crap! BRING BACK AMBRIELLE PLEASE!!!!!!!!

I also am disappointed that I can't find St. John's Bay in our JC Penney. The whole store is a nightmare and in our small town, we don't have many options.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO FIND COTTON T SHIRTS OR ANY T SHIRT THAT IS A REGULAR LENGTH. MOST LOOK LIKE A DRESS ON ME AND DO NOT SUIT ME AT ALL. JCP ALWAYS HAD SUCH A GREAT VARIETY OF T SHIRTS FOR EVERY SEASON! i HAVE BEEN APPROACHED SO MANY TIMES BY OTHER SHOPPERS SAYING HOW UPSET THEY WERE WITH JCP AND THE CHANGES THEY HAVE MADE.

Is it because they were a great product with loyal customers who swore by them, told their female friends about them? I now have no where to turn for bras and panties that fit correctly and comfortably. Are we loyal customers no longer worthy?

I was very disappointed when I found out that the Ambrielle line of bras was discontinued. I was fortunate to find them on clearance last year so I bought a bunch of them. I'll be needing to replace some of my favorites soon. Please bring back this line of bras!

I was very sadden to visit the JP Penny store and be told by an associate that JC Penny has chosen to discontinue the Ambrielle bra line. I've worn these bras for years.
Maybe JC Penny's choice to discontinue the good, old faithful line of clothing is why the good, old faithful customers are having to leave the JC Penny's stores they've loved!
8/14/2013 9:29:44 PM
I'm so sad you don't have the Ambrielle Bra anymore. It fits me so well!! Ugggg. :( I'm sure there is a reason for it just like everything else jcpenny is changing.

I for years purchased all my suits 6 to 8 a year. You No longer have a selection to interest the over 40 crowd. All the skinny suits are for someone a lot young than I. So I am moving on to search for a retailer that cares to cater to people with a waist over 36 inches . Not that I am obese but 38 waist and 46 long is not conducive to thigh hugging pants. Sorry Penney' s I am outta here .

I *CANNOT* Believe you stopped carrying Ambrielle brand bras and panties!! These are the BEST intimate apparel items I've ever found! Well made, comfortable, long lasting and AFFORDABLE! Pleasepleaseplease.. If you refuse to carry them in the store at least carry them online.. You've got a lot of pissed off customers from all across the country from what I can see. This was a high quality product to just give up on. Bring that line back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please please PLEASE bring back the St. John's Bay women's bi-stretch pants! They're the perfect pants for work, always fit me great, and I can't find anything else even close. If they want to bring customers back, they need to start offering the stuff customers want to buy!

My husband is 6'7, two of my four sons are over 6'3". I used to be able to count on JCP for high-quality garments for these guys (especially hubby) and now it looks like JCP is phasing out their extra-tall selections entirely! What's up with THAT?? People are getting taller, not shorter: it used to be my husband's height was somewhat rare (we're in our late fifties) but now I see young men all the time that are as tall or even TALLER. I went to order some shirts for my husband and the selection was beyond pitiful. What a shame. No wonder JCP isn't doing so well.

I shopped with my mom and grandma at JCP. I stuck by you during the Ron Johnson era but this past weekend came to the realization that you don't care about the women with the money. You seem to be catering to the younger crowd. This was quite evident when I found out you no longer carry Jones New York. This, for me, was the last straw. I hope this is just a trend for you and that JCP finds their way again!

I am very sadden that the Ambrielle bra collection has been removed from the stores. Considering I am a full figure women and I have never found a product that I could wear all day without wanting to take the bra off on the ride home due to discomfort. I pray for the brand to return to the department stores only brand I've bought in years. Is there any other department stores that carry this ambrielle bra brand?

Please bring back the Ambrielle bras. I have searched and searched for years trying to find a bra that is comfortable, good quality, and a reasonable price. When I tried to purchase some recently, I was told J.C.Penney no longer sells them. What a disappointment! The Ambrielle was a fantastic bra and I can only hope you will reconsider your choice.
8/12/2013 12:34:32 PM
ambrielle are the only bras that right me that I really like and of course jc penny doesn't sell them anymore. Jc penny is getting rid of all the brands that people love. I now have to go to a different store to find my bras. Jc penny's needs to bring back this line they are losing a lot of customers by not providing this line of bras anymore.

Dissaoppointed that you stop selling St. Johns Bay jeans. I bought my jeans shirts and socks at JCPenny. Every time I went to by seemed that the store could not keep them stocked. Why would you stop selling the jeans that seemed to be sold out all the time. Bring them back so me and others can continue you to shop at your stores.

I am so disappointed you discontinued the sjb brand of active wear - they were available in smaller tall sizes that I could order and I would always buy them. You have lost another loyal customer. I never go into the store anymore. Remember the old saying, "If its not broken, don't try to fix it."That should have applied to your marketing department!

Ambrielle bras are very comfortable, well made, and have a excellent fit.
With all the Sales concerns JCPenneys has it makes no sense that they dropped an excellent product!!!!!!!
8/8/2013 12:11:57 PM
The only thing that kept me going back to JCP after all of the changes was their Ambrielle line!! Now, other than to make my way into the mall I have no reason to enter the store. While in college I worked for JCP and it is really sad to see what they have done to the store since then!!

Just when I thought JCP was getting back in the game, they discontinue the Ambrielle line. Oh no!
The employee I talked to said they were going more "basic" in their lines. YOu call the Cosmopolitan super pushup zebra striped bra basic? Ambrielle was basic, affordable and a downright good bra.
Another former JCP shopper. Off to Kohl's where I can get the same thing at a better discount.

Ditto to all: It is so sad about the Ambrielle line no longer at JCP. I have no reason to shop there anymore. So many stores trying to keep up with "The Jones" I realize times change but they forget what customers like an seem to not care.
8/5/2013 10:14:08 AM
I am very disappointed that JCP has discontinued the Ambrielle line!! I literally almost left the store crying when I realized they were no longer being sold. They were the ONLY bras that fit me well and made me look/feel good! They were comparable to VS at a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately I can no go back to VS because they do not carry my size. Ambrielle did. And the lines that replaced Ambrielle?? Nope. Junior's sizing at best. The Cosmopolitan line is horrible. Horrible quality and not true to size. I am a college student and didn't have the money during the school year to purchase new bras and now I am kicking myself for not going sooner. Once I had the money, they were gone. Shame on you JCP!! Your lame attempts to "keep up appearances" or "attract new customers" has cost you your loyal tried and true customers!!

It had such a sharpness to the seam it drew blood! I am taking them back and have lost all reason to return to JCP. I am terribly disappointed, and cant find them anywhere.

I don't like the New JC Penney. I used to purchase beautiful clothing for myself and family. Not to mention the great Christmas gifts, every year. I used to buy almost all of my shoes from there as well. It's sad to see, how things have changed, and not for the better.
8/5/2013 4:42:10 PM
JC Penney used to be my favorite place to shop. I bought everything from clothing, to curtains, bedding, gifts, etc. Now it is quite a disappointment. It is geared to the younger generation, period. No one else seems to be important. It's sad to see such a wonderful place to shop go down hill. I think its important to cater to the younger generation, but not at the cost of losing everyone else, that has shopped there for years. I rarely go to JC Penney's anymore, when at one time that was the first place I would shop.

Where oh where are my Ambrielle Mystique bras? Why on earth would you discontinue these? They were comfortable, sexy and affordable. I'm very disappointed. Also, you've gotten rid of your St. John's Bay brand of shorts. What's up with that? Weren't these brands specifically tied to your store? Why would you change something that was working? There is no need for me to shop at Penny's any longer. I guess your "tried and true" customers' desires aren't as important as trying to capture a new target audience.

I was shocked and very upset that the Ambrielle panties I always buy was gone when I went in today. I hated the new look.of the store, its horrific! Get rid of it and bring back the Ambrielle line or else your aim is to close an icon in shopping. I use to love finding all sorts of blouses, pants whatever but now that store is suppose to be some upscale store. Look, please reverese the idiotic changes, the average hard working customers might just come back.

It's almost time for the kids to start school and JCP is the store I usually do most of my shopping. But now I cannot understand why JCP changed the girl sizes. Girl sizes are now 6-16 with no plus sizes. JCP use to carry plus sizes up to 20 for girls. I find jr sizes are too grown for little girls. JCP please bring back the girls plus size!!!

The name of the game in operating a store is to make money and have happy repeat customers. The Ambrielle Bra line was my draw to JC Penney. I usually purchased (5)at a time, along with making other purchases throughout the store. I have stopped shopping at JC Penney, but will return when the Ambrielle Bra line returns. They fit very well and are very comfortable and durable.

In a recent ad, JcPenney urged customers to "come back" and you promised to "listen to what customers want." I am going to challenge you on that and hope that you will respond.
Your former CEO Ron Johnson did away with the entire line of Ambrielle bras.... And that was a mistake of gigantic proportions. Women are faithful to their chosen brand of bras... We are loyal to brand and style. Therefore if JC Penney doesn't have that line, you lose loyal customers. I went in to JC Penney at Fox Valley Mall and was lucky to find Carol, a 23 year veteran employee who explained what had happened to Ambielle bras. She said there have been many many people wanting them, but the (now fired) CEO had made that decision and many of his bad choices are now being reversed. I sincerely hope this will be one of them!
I normally went to JCPenney just for these bras but once there, I usually ended up with a lot of other items I didnt specifically go for but saw once I was there....when I went in the other day and found out no more Ambrielle bras- I didn't stay. Now you won't get me in the door because I know what I want isn't there.
Please follow through with your stated promise to listen- respond to customers' wants (in this case Bring Back Ambrielle Bras) and I will be back...

Like so many others (it seems), I am very disappointed that they stopped carrying the Ambrielle bras. They were the only ones I could find that actually FIT well. I only have one left, and it's my favorite by far--I've done extensive bra shopping since and not found any I like nearly as well. I'm disappointed by other changes in the store as well. I used to do a majority of my clothes shopping there, and I've been multiple times recently only to walk out with nothing--couldn't find a single shirt or anything I liked.

My husband and I rarely shopped for us or the kids at JC Penney. Growing up, our mothers loved those clothes and were always trying to force them on us. When the fresh new marketing and brands came in, even my husband agreed to look around and purchased some items. I was excited and planned to do a lot of my Christmas shopping for the kids and grandkids there. I got some wonderful new clothes for me as well. To my great disappointment, last time I went in, back were the old tired brands. Yuck. We won't be shopping there much any longer.

Hello all you Ambrielle fans! I did some research for you. There are people listing these bras on Ebay. Here is only one of several listings and all appear to be new and in different size. Just go to Ebay (I know you older folks might not have a computer but maybe friends have) and type in this Item Number and it should take you to the right page. #350809546395
I've never worn this bra myself but it looks comfy and well made to me. Good Luck!

I HATE the new JCPenney layout. It is terribly inconvenient to have to go from location to location to search for jeans, then do the same thing all over again to look for shirts. I can't even get my husband through the doors anymore, so, forget about shopping for him there again. It is so claustrophobic to have those walls and cubbies separating everything. You've lost me. I won't be coming back. I used to spend nearly all my clothes shopping money there, but this was the final straw. Seriously, did you even think about the shoppers when you structured this disjointed and disparate layout????

I am crushed!!! I went to buy my stock 3 ambrielle 40DD bras and the line had disappeared !!! A meager assortment of novelty itty nitty bras and panties were all there was in the whole department.
I have searched for years for the right fit and comfort that didn't look sleezey or bulge and pinch! I have bought at least 6 every year and what can I do now? Why don't you make them available by online order? It would reduce inventory while keeping us had to fit (voluptuous) women looking and feeling great!!

If you all follow suit and drop Paula Deen, I will no longer be a customer of your store. Those out on a witch hunt need to really take a look at themselves before judging someone else for a mistake. Better make sure you don't have any skeletons in YOUR closet!!!

You are so correct! Everyone I know has used that word before. Just trying to get another woman. When did they fire a guy for it? Remember Marth Steward?

I need to mention that I am from Europe and we grew up referring to them as Negroes and there was nothing negative whatsoever associated with that word. I never ever even heard that "N" word when living there. That I learned here! Of course, European history is different and lots of that we can't be proud of either. But mostly, Europeans are MUCH MORE tolerant and non-recist than what I have encountered here. Especially many (not all) of the so called "christians" who go to church. Should hear their comments about race and gays!!! But they love their neighbor, right? I don't think they really do if......

I have to say that I am another to add a huge disappointment to the store I grew up as a staple in my family's lives. While I now live on an island in the Pacific that no longer has a store (huge disappointment there because Oahu has just about everything but a JcPenneys) I relied online to carry the BRAS I have worn for years and that my both my adult daughters now wear, one who is in the US Army and stationed here too....so when they are so populare, why in the world would you discontinue the Ambrielle collection. A bra only you carried. It was well loved by many customers, as this site can well attest to.
For women who shopped around for years and were measured and mismeasured by so called experts in this field and then to finally find a perfect bra only to have your company pull the entire line makes me ill. I was lucky to foresee this coming when they clearanced my bra and I ordered 5, but they will not last long....even the most delicate care does not preserve an item you wear against your skin....its not meant to either, its a disposable commodity. But to rip it away like so many of the other fine products you have in place of your JCP brand that you hope will save your business is alienating those who truly love your store. I have begun to shop elsewhere, you have lost a lifelong customer in me and my family. If you continue to do this you will have not created a new dynamic store, but a domino effect in a lost customer base that will continue to spread like a wildfire...I'd have to say, fire your new executive and go back to the basics and you may find a turn around in your bottom line, I might even consider coming back...but for now I will not darken your internet steps again all for the loss of my only bra.

I CANNOT believe you no longer carry Ambrielle Bras. I went to the store today to stock up on THE only bra I wear and could not find them anywhere. Of course there was no sales person to ask. So I came home, got on line and low and behold can't find them anywhere!!! I wear a 40DD and have wore these for years because they are the only one that did not make me look ridiculous, misshapen, fall out or bulge. I actually want to cry. It is so hard to find a bra that makes you look real. Now I have to find some other piece of crap to wear. And of course, will have to try on bra after bra after bra to find something but eventually will leave with nothing. So disappointed. And hate the way the upstairs looks at JCP in Flint Mall. Go back to old JCP.

I am SOOO upset about Ambrielle being discontinued by JCPenney. I would have loved to have been warned about this. I would have stocked up. I really don't like the changes recently made to JCP. I used to be a frequent customer, and now, not so much. I see that things are reverting back to the way they were. How about bringing back Ambrielle?
6/26/2013 6:49:50 PM
Hate the changes! Store seems barren and what clothing you do carry seems to be of poor quality. Not much to chose from. Looks like a "going out of business" sale. I miss the old store. Soooo much more to chose from. Kind of like a treasure hunt. The changes make the store boring and very plain. Too bad I will not shop there anymore. Big mistake fellas!
6/26/2013 1:21:48 AM
I'd like to start by saying I don't write reviews for just about anything, but I'm making an exception and practically begging for the return of my bra line. I have the same bra in 6 colors and I'm kinda a fanatic about them, raved to every woman I knew about them. I'm not chesty so I get bras with a bit of padding and after about an hour I'm adjusting because it keeps shifting but not with the Ambrielle line. Seriously if there is a black market for the ultimate upsize bra let me know so I can buy 20 more! It's insane to me that you would stop selling the best product you ever had. If anyone in cyber land knows of a comparable product let me know.

But look sexy as well.
You guys have made many blunder mistakes in
Your marketing which has caused many to discontinue

I want Ambrelle Bras back! That is the only brand that fit right and lasted. I could even buy online knowing that my size would fit. I could also find my size 36D which is hard to do. AND they were the only bra that I could stand to wear all day.
I hate to go back to trying on 30 bras just to find one that might fit.

I went to buy new bras yesterday and was shocked to find out that jc Penney has dropped the Ambrielle line. I can't even buy them online. They have picked up a cosmopolitan line instead. I'm not happy about this or the other changes they've made! Now I will be looking at other stores to find a full figure bra! If I wanted to shop at a Walmart or target for my clothing I would. Bring back the old jc Penney and stop trying to be like a cheap discount store! I want quality! Women love to use coupons and to shop or "hunt" for a good deal. I don't want low priced clothing that is poor quality!!!

The best bra ever made is the BALI SNOWFLAKE underwire!!! Been buying it for 40 years and so have my friends. Why would you discontinue it? You force me to go to Kohls when I'd much prefer to get it at Penneys. I DO LIKE YOUR NEW STORE, so much more cheerful and organized, but some items should still be there for the not-teenage generation. There are LOTS of stores for the young generation!!!! Bring TALL slacks back (yes, also Gloria Vanderbild AMANDA), we want pants/jeans that don't hang halfway down the hips. Size XL is always sold out the fastest. And many of your Size 1X are not true to size nowadays, more like XL. The cheaper the product, the less fabric they use. Children's department is great. My grandkids are happy, I buy them lots. I think you will be successful again if you remember that the young generatiion is not excited about the name Penneys but millions of older people know it well and we are not dead yet!!! I mean above 50 not 80. So trying to get the young converted is certainly good stradegy, but keep, or bring back, what made you money in the past.

My mother and I use to enjoy shopping at Penneys, there's nothing to bring me back. I received a flyer in the mail promoting St Johns Bay was back. I returned to the store to found a very small section and limited area of tee shirts. The quality was not what use to be. What I found was a big area of Martha Stewart products. I enjoy her products but I can find her products at Macy's. I can also shop for cloths at Macy's. Penney's clothes line is not bringing me back to the store. Bring back the items that Penney's is know for and I might return.

I can understand everyone's fustration with the new changes. After all, when something changes, we tend to question and only look at the bad. Unfortunately, the issue goes deeper than just bringing back items. Retaliers and vendors change prices, they charge more and when JCP decided to lower their prices to elimiate coupons, alot of those vendors did not want to lower their price for the customer. Alot of people are upset over the coupons, and rightfully so. But do you realize that if coupons end up coming back as there used to be, then prices have to increase? Customers get upset when the prices are too high so coupons are made with exlcusion- then they get angry at the exclusions and complain that the prices are still too high and want more discounts. Then when prices are dropped to everyday low prices, customers complain that they are too high still. C'mon now, you can not get free stuff. I agree that not everything dropped dramatically in price, but everything did drop in price. No coupons or early bird sales, in all honestly I did not like waking up with the chickens for a lower price. And the coupons, yes I do miss them and I believe that they drive sales, but I also know that I end up paying a higher price in general in order to partake in those coupons. My Johnson had the right idea- he just executed it too fast and keot everyone in the dark. The idea is a great one and it can work, it just has to be executed in a timely manner and in a different way.
For those who think that we need registers. I for one will agree but times are changing and the vast majority of the population carries debit and credit cards and do not really use cash anymore so it was a semi-step in the right direction, but once again, poor execution.
And now the customer service: associates are fustrated and worried about their jobs and unfortunately it comes out when they hear the same questions over and over again on why things are changing and why there is no longer this and why the

In regards to the person who commented as anonymous on 4/10/2013 @ 6:32:33. I have one comment. Your statement was all about people complaining about the prices, lack of coupons, etc. If you would have taken the time to read many, many posts you would have noticed that alot of the comments were regarding love of specific items sold at JCP that were discontinued outright. Notice all the requests for SJB line to come back, Ambrielle bras, Alfred Dunner, Stafford Super Shirts etc. Very few people were complaining about pricing, so you missed the point, completely! What people are complaining about is that JCPenneys had an identity crisis, hired a hot shot exec, completely changed how they market, sell and discontinued tried and true products and in doing so alienated many of their long term customers to try to revamp their market share. That's what people are upset about.

I stopped by my local store in at the Ocean County Mall to find a new swimsuit, exercise wear and check out work clothes. I was sorely disappointed to find that the plus-size clothes were gone. I was always able to find some nice pieces and was thrilled when they added a wide selection of exercise wear in women's sizes. It was a pleasure to be able to find lots of options and try them on rather than second guess how they might fit from a catalog image. My once favorite store is now useless. So, I ended up spending my money elsewhere and won't be returning to this once wonderful store.

JC Penney has discontinued most of the brands they use to carry. I loved the St. John's Bay jeans. Fit perfect. JC Penney talked me into buying "ANNA" I hate them. Maybe these younger girls like to wear pants that show their butt crack but I don't. JC Penney does not even have any Arizona's that fit properly anymore.

JCP used to be the "go to" store for a lot of us. When they decided to get flashy and try to compete with Macy's and similar stores, they apparently forget about a huge section of the market that was more concerned about QUALITY, RELIABILITY, COMMON SENSE, VALUE, and the very ideals we had all come to rely on from J.C. Penney. Now much of their clothing looks to be made for anorexic teeny boppers. I hear they're discontinuing the best window treatments and quality items for the home. Many women I know will no longer shop their stores because they cannot find suitable clothing. We are looking for clothes that flatter our middle aged selves. Can someone tell me when it became fashionable to wear (and sell) such ill-fitting clothes. We WANT mom jeans and comfortable undergarments. Since JCP hasn't competed well in the "new" market, maybe they should start listening to their former customers and try to woo them back with quality and value-based merchandise. I have been in the Saginaw store once in the last year and won't go back. I check out their online offerings but they seem to be doing away with what I'm searching for. Lesson: A store cannot be all things to all people. Pick a demographic, market, build loyalty, carve your niche. Who would have thought basic, nice merchandise would be a niche market?

On one of those deal blogs, I got an incredible code from JCP -- $10 off of $10, so I bought a pair of $10 sandals, had them delivered to my local JCP (to take advantage of free shipping there) and waited... and waited. I received no contact when they came in, no emails, no text messages. I logged into my account to see if they were in yet -- it said there were no orders in my account. So I figured the code was bogus. Then a few weeks later, I received a snail-mail letter from JCP saying it was going to credit my account the ($0) money back because I had not picked up the sandals in due time. I mean I wasn't out any money, but I hate it that I don't get my sandals because of JCP's communication problems. Sure, it's minor, but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Not sure I can trust this company anymore.

A message For Those of You Waiting for St. John's Bay Women's Tops to Return: ..... I was so tired of the site being out of most of the SJB tops for so long that I had a friend drive me to JCP an hour away so that I could pick up some tops. I came home with nothing. The SJB section had very little in the way of different styles and the quality and fit is no longer the same as it was years ago. The material on all styles was much thinner and now you have to go up a size because everything is cut skimpy.

I only buy Stafford Super Shirts. I am a school principal and loved these shirts as they were the best in the market. The fact that your company has decided to discontinue them is sad and frustrating. I will now have to shop at Macy's or Sears and try and find a shirt that is similar. You lost a customer of 20 years and - frankly - your store does not seem to care too much. When I asked the attendants at the stores, they do not even understand it. The layout of the stores have changed, the selection is limited, and it seems like you lost your identity. Was it worth it JC Penney?

I too was an exclusive Super Shirt man. Best. Dress shirt. Ever. Now your dress shirts are not remarkable or unique in any way. I will find another store to purchase my dress shirts from, and my slacks. Maybe I'l drop by and buy some dress socks every once in a while. JC Penny has made a serious error here, and cost themselves a life long customer.

Why is JC Penny not bringing back this St Johns Pant?
St. John's Bay® Bi-Stretch Pant-W-Blk
18W, Black Average
I've read many comments that women are asking. These pants have a great fit and very hard to find. Please advise if you will ever bring back.

I am searching far and wide for the bra I have worn happily for years. I am a large busy nurse, and support and comfort are high on my list...you stopped carrying Ambrielle bras!! ..seriously, you could at least carry them online! My grandfather built many of the old JC Penney's stores around the country. He had pics w/ James Cash Penney! I grew up a Penney's brat. I am about to cut up my Penney's card and forget a store that I feel like has been in my family for my whole life...lots of the new stuff ticked me off...but stopping carrying the only bra that fits me right...that was the final straw!! Bring it back in the next few weeks or I will cut up my cards and never go to Penney's again!

Like many in my profession, I need durable, comfortable wash and wear clothing and for years SJB and Cabin Creek were pretty much my clothing of choice. Being and older lady, fit, color and comfort are priorities. I was devestated when JCP eliminated these tried and true brands. I hated the new store design and after trying twice, gave up and stopped going. Clothes that cater to the young with funky fabrics and design are a waste. There are so many stores that cater to that age group and few that have clothes for me. If JC Penny is committed to bringing back these brands then they better do better than they are now. A small corner with a few offerings at higher prices is not what I call bringing them back. I used to spend $500+ a year but no more.

What has happened to JCP? James Cash Penney would turn over in his grave to see what has happened to his family store. I keep getting these brochures in the mail saying you have listened and brought back old favorites. Well, I went to JCP this week and you had allotted one very small corner to John St. Bay. The store has lots of clothes in "neon" colors for the young crowd, but nothing for the main family shoppers. Please bring back the catalog. You have cut off a large retail sector who does not have access to a store. I miss the old, tried and true brands you did carry.

What happened to that great catalog? I hope with all the changes that JCP will bring it back. We are no-where near a JCP store and for years ordered everything from the catalog from housewares to clothing. It was used so often that it was never put away. I sure hope they bring it back!

I can't imagine how many customers (especially satisfied longtimers) JCP angered and lost when St. John's Bay clothing was dropped. Thank goodness that foolish decision has just been reversed. If the wonderful, reliable, quality, classic SJB merchandise is quickly made available in stores and online, JCP will see big income returns and the rebuilding of consumer trust. Come on JCP, get it together... today I still can't find SJB womens classic long- and 3/4 sleeve v-neck and crew neck (Misses or Plus) tees. Shake a leg, JCP! P-l-e-a-s-e get back all of the former SJB line and Ambrielle, too... PRONTO. Keep Lee jeans (including talls) coming also. Customers with cash are impatiently waiting and next school season is only 3 months away! (P.S. The replacement JCP brand tees were flimsy, ill-fitting and awful. Junk them!)

My sentiments exactly! You said it well. Although I am looking to buy many styles in St. John's Bay misses t-shirts, it's the classic 3/4 sleeve v-neck that I miss most and want many more of. I bought them in solid colors and prints around 10 years ago and am still wearing them. Nothing compares to the fit and quality of SJB. The JCP equivalent is flimsy and ill fitting and my opinion is that they have further ruined their image by selling them. I am at the site daily in the hopes of seeing SJB restocked.

Very disappointed in our local JC Penney. I used to shop at Belk's and Penney's. Now when I go to Penney's it looks like you are going out of business because there is almost no merchandise on the sales floor. The brands and items I have always enjoyed are no longer there! So different that 3 or 4 years ago when I could find so much at your store. PLease change Penney's back to the store that it was and bring back the brands that you used to have! I went to the Athens, GA store today and could find Ambrielle lingerie or the exercise clothes that I bought just 2 years ago.

I went to our JCPenney store last night, only to find they no longer carry the E. 5th St. slacks! I could always count on getting them there and I really like the fit and the price. I was very disappointed. I, too, would have gotten there to pick up a few had I known that. I can't even find anybody that sells them on the web! I also noticed the look of the jewelry in the store had changed significantly. So much of it was really large and bright-colored and gawdy! I love colors and glitz, but this was tacky looking. I was surprised-I used to be able to find some real pretty jewelry there.

5/25/2013 9:37:40 AM
Agreed. I used to shop JCP for nearly everything from pants to jeans to sweaters to tops. When I found my FAVORITE bra (Ambrielle), I was delighted for many years.
Now I cannot find long jeans in curvy fit. Most of the tops for long-waisted women are horrific and the few attractive choices are NEVER in stock. The best bras for my body are Ambrielle, but they have been discontinued. Forget finding a dress for a long-waisted, tall woman at JCP--there is NOTHING in these sizes except for the occasional maxi-dress. NEWSFLASH: Tall doesn't only mean "long-legged." I have recently spent my money at Gap, Old Navy, and Long Elegant Legs because these companies carry longer fits in everything.
No wonder JCPenney is in trouble. This company is catering to trendy, younger people, but those of us who have jobs and will support ths company are being pushed away by these terrible merchandise decisions. I received a gift card for the holidays that I still have not used because there simply is nothing I would like fom this company. I am about to cancel my JCPenney card account. JCPenney is losing my business and, from the looks of these comments, the company is losing countless other customers. We are telling you how to win us back. How about listening to us?

Aside from the fact that there is no longer many St John's Bay womens tops, and that the website is loaded with so many errors that I can't navigate, I think management has lost their minds. I chose 4 JPC crewneck tee's in different colors last night in the petite size. I noticed that they were $12.99, yet the same top in missess was $5.99. I still planned to order them today. When I did, the petite size was listed at $5.99. So why was it $12.99 last night? And how could a petite in the same style cost almost double the misses size when there is less material to it? Something is awfully wrong at JCP!

>>> Jennifer C, Knoxville TN
5/1/2013 10:33:30 PM
You sound so ignorant! How on earth can you even type those words is beyond me! Ellen is an amazing human being. She does so much for so many and brings happiness to most everyone that encounters her. So what if she is a lesbian. She is in a committed relationship that makes her happy! That is the only thing that's important.
All you Christian people seem to forget that the Bible says:
“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
Maybe people should just learn to love each others as human beings and stop looking for reasons to judge others because we are miserable in our own lives.

Let's assume top JCP management really does want to know what they need to do to reverse the recent losses, and that they are listening to their customer base via forums like this. Attacking a poster like fas933 has the effect of intimidating and silencing voices that could help management understand what has alienated once-loyal customers. It's reasonable to think that a significant market has been lost by the overt promotion of homosexuality. Management should want to encourage free, open, and honest comments about their marketing or merchandise, especially from lost customers. Personal attacks on commenters is not at all helpful.
Now for a quick mirror check, how would your shopping be affected if they hired Tim Tebow as spokesman, and scattered a few inspirational Bible verses in their ads?

All JCP stores do have St. John's Bay again, and the new JCP brand is terrific. New pricing is also great. The changes to the stores are pretty amazing. You seem to be a very unhappy shopper but I don't really think the issue is JCP. Find a mirror. P.S. at some point EVERYTHING is on sale. :)

I have worn Cabin Creek clothes for over 40 years. When I was thin and when I gained weight. Had to find jeans at Woman With-In, they were close but not made as well or not true to size like Cabin Creek's were.
Now why would a company who had customers for 4 decades send them some place else to shop and instead pander to the youth? Like they have money in this economy...
If they get Cabin Creek's entire line back I will be back also. If not I don't care if the local store here closes.

Since JCP has been in an apologetic mod lately, how about apologizing AND doing something about getting this shoe back on your halves and online? Have you read all the requests and pleas across the web? Baby boomers are the people with money to spend in your stores not kids
5/17/2013 5:09:33 PM
It's too bad that JCP seems to have changed their focus to a younger set, leaving the Baby Boomers in the dust. FYI: Regarding the disappearing Ambrielle line, I found some very nice, similar lines with a fit like Ambrielle in Kohl's Dept Store(they were buy 1 and 1/2 off 1, 30% off on acct opening, Kohl's dollars that add up and many sales). Also found things there cheaper than other places online. I think I will do just fine there. I highly recommend checking them out!

I can't figure out if you just stopped carrying them or if they were discontinued by your company. Mine are in need of being replaced, though, and I feel desperate!

They're the only ones that I like and fit and have been buying for quite a few years now. I don't think that I will be switching to the new, skimpy fluorescent-colored ones that I've seen in the store! JCP's ads say, 'we are listening'. I honestly think they are doing themselves in and maybe don't know it...yet. The store has been remodeled and looks nice. BUT, if people cannot get what they want, they are just not going to come!!

Oh yes, ladies beware of the "deals" at JCP.
On 4/3/13 I bought king sized sheets that I will admit are a quality product for $100. Liked them so went back...LOL they are now $180 for the exact same sheets. Do the math!

Where are the St John Bay denim skorts. I buy serveal every spring but not this year because they are not in store. I would rather be a able to depend upon buying staples that I have purchased for years at JCP, than buy a $4.00 t shirt.

I went to my local J.C. Penney on Saturday to find a pair of petite jeans. They carried two brands - Lee and JCP (their own). I only found the Lee jeans, and even then only one pair of jeans in my size! What happened to St. John's Bay, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Levi's?!!! I ended up buying my jeans at Macy's, when I really wanted to support J.C. Penney. I hope this changes by the time I go back to Penney's again!

JCP was my store of choice but not now. When you go into a store now it is on par with Wal-mart.
For years I bought both St. John's Bay and Cabin Creek. Of course those brands are no more. Also, I am a plus sized, middle aged woman who doesn't want to dress like a teenager. Please listen to the people who have shopped your stores for years and bring back some of these popular labels.

Why oh why would JCPenney stop being in stock on mens and ladies underwear.
The underscore package white ladies briefs, underscore bras with underwire. Not available on line.
Worked at JCPenney for 35 years always took pride in keeping in stock in basics.
How could the JC Penney board of directors let such a fiasco happen?
5/7/2013 3:34:55 PM
I stopped shopping at JC Penney about 18-20 months ago. I finally went today after so many "we want to see you" commercials. WELL, it is just as crappy as it was 2 years ago. Couldn't find anything for myself and it took a long time to find a gift for my neice. Had to wait in line to pay - was told they no longer offer gift boxes and when I asked for a gift receipt the transaction stretched into the 15 minute range. I told them to forget it. I won't EVER be back!! Lousy merchandise, lousy service - just lousy all around. And to thing - Penney's used to be my favorite store.

Please bring back the Ambrielle brand high-cut briefs and that line in general. It was my favorite underwear. If I walk into a JCP store since all the changes were made, I always walk out with nothing. I have even told my family to not purchase gift cards for me for birthdays or holidays because I can't find any decent clothing in the store.

I used to buy Stafford dress shirts, short pants, socks and underwear at J. C. Penney. My local Penney's didn't have my size in a plain white shirt. The short pants are geared for teenagers. All I wanted was a plain colored pair. The underwear I had been buying there for decades was nowhere around. Instead they had hideous whites made in Vietnam. I bought two sets of sweat socks. The Wolverine brand had holes in them after about seven washings. The other pair I bought was supposed to fit shoe sizes up to 12. I am a size 10 and can barely get into them. Plus when you go to pay for something, there is no one around to take your money. What a disaster!

Since they no longer sell St. John's Bay, I have no desire to go there. The St. John's Bay petite pants were the ones that fit perfectly. And for other things, I can get them anywhere. JCP have gone downhill!

I use to spend at least $100 a month at Penney's. I have not spent $100 there in the past year! Our store sucks.
Even came out empty handed today, and I just went to buy some bath towels. They have even downsized and changed that department. Replaced it with luggage????
5/6/2013 9:28:17 PM
These comments baffle me. The new brands are not cheaply made, and they fit very well. I've purchased several SJB items; my store has always had that brand for sale. The new look is great; it feels upscale, but with good prices. I liked the mobile check-out scanner. The Levi's bar is super nice--no other store has anything like it. I also like the fit and quality of the Stafford, JCP, JFJFerrar, Claiborne, and ijeans by Buffalo brands. The new home department looks great.

The current remodel is underwhelming. Less merchandise, higher prices, and where did the price scanners go? The old "new" JCPenney was disfunctional, but I could count on them having merchandise and clearance out the wazoo. The stores now are bare. If they don't have it on the floor, they don't have it. I gave up on their website because its search capability was horrible. I have seen amateur website with better search functionality. I used to be a loyal customer, but the thrill is gone.

I am happy to hear some brands are being brought back. I miss St. John's Bay. I miss the JCP towels. I miss my bra brand. I also miss so many of the people. Maybe you should bring them back too. There is only one nice manager left in my local store. I miss the cheery jewelry guy and the sweet womens lady. They always said hello to me - nobody ever does now.

I used to shop at penneys all the time, but since the big change at Penneys, I will not shop there. I am a mature adult female and your clothes are horrible. It seems the change is geared for young teenagers with short shorts, see through clothing and very low cut. I have been shopping at Dillards now for my clothing.
5/3/2013 7:00:13 AM
Personally I quit shopping at JCP because of the sales people. It feels like Walmart. JCP should take pride in their employees as well as their products and help them dress for success. Your employees should be your Best, advocates. Use them as live clothing models and show off your wears!
Good luck bringing back the masses.

I quit shopping at JCPenney when they began promoting gay values. Now its a year later and their stock values have continued to decline so much they fired the CEO responsible for the changes that alienated former shoppers like me...but its too late. I won't be back...and now that you're getting rid of Ellen you'll also lose your gay friendly shoppers.

Penney's should never have changed. The store always had excellent departments. The only thing that became stagnate is some of the ladies wear. All that needed to be replaced is some of the buyers for ladies clothing. It seems that middle aged women's clothing was lacking. JCP either catered to the juniors and older aged women, with nothing for the middle aged ladies.

The web is full of folks searching for Towncraft 50/50 undershirts. Example, reference the Undershirt Guy website. I read somewhere that JCPenney discontinued them due to some issue with the manufacturing process for 50/50 shirts.
Please consider bringing these back. They were comfortable, affordable, and did not shrink. I have searched high and low for a replacement, but a 50/50 blended undershirts that is XL Tall is impossible to find.

I was a weekly shopper of JCPennys. If it wasn't a blouse, it was shoes, if not that, bedding materials and much more. I would even make sale announcements at my job because I was happy to tell someone about the wonderful sales at the store. But now, not much I say is positive about the store. I speak for a lot of people and we like to see the sign that says Biggest Sale of the Season. A markdown and a sign saying you can get an additional amount off... That goes a long way... ok fine, you changed your pricing to whole numbers but saying everyday pricing and expecting me to buy a shirt that's been sitting there for 3 months and is the same price or $2.00 off, I feel cheated. I saw the new commercial about you messed up. You are absolutely right and until you bring back the old selling strategies (buy 1 get 1 for a penny etc) Your sales will continue to drop.

Was a customer of J C Penney for years - I am so glad the board finally fired Johnson - should have done it sooner. I have taken most of my shopping business to Macy's and Kohls. Great experience shopping in stores and on line - compared to Penneys. Penney's stopped carrying Gloria Vanderbilt jeans Kohl's had them on line - I ordered them and had them shipped in 3 days to my home. Macys has always been a store with great customer service. Penneys has now created a "we are so sorry - forgive us - come back ad - I am still very angry at how they handled all this - customers, employees all suffered. I may never shop there again - regaardless of what they do.

I totally agree. JCPenney used to be my store of choice. I bought all of my linens, bedding, housewares there. Going through my clothes today, I am surprised at how many are "St. John's Bay". I LOVED St. John's Bay clothing. The "JCP" stores have NOTHING in them anymore. Poor quality, poor selection. I received a $10 coupon last year to come back and it took me 1 1/2 hours to find something I wanted to buy. The management has lost it's mind. They've gone from a great store to a nothing store in a matter of 2 years. I wouldn't be surprised to see them close their doors completely. Shame on you JCP for destroying your company and losing loyal customers like myself. And shame on you for getting rid of St. John's Bay product line.

On jcpenney's website, I've noticed lately that when I return to a product page of an item I've either been to before, or have already bought, the prices have doubled! It's ridiculous to pay $50 for a lace curtain that I paid $25 just the week before. I tried clearing my cache and going to the page on another computer, just in case of cache issues, but it seems the prices really have doubled. I noticed they are having a spring sale right now, so is it that they are trying to recoup money from sale items by increasing prices on regular items? This is insane.

I totally agree. I went to order two glass end tables which were $275. each and had planned to pick up at the store. The website would not take my phone number. When I went to call it in 2 days later the price had jumped to $550 each! If the every day low price was $275. and one can assume there is a markup at that price how can JCP justify another markup of $275.00! Somehow I can not see JCP offering these items "on sale" for the previous every day price. A very unhappy former customer.

I am so disappointed into what Penneys has turned into. The clothing line in womens are geared for Womens or the much younger .What about us that need the in-between fit? Last year after searching a good 2yrs to find shorts to fit and look just right were the St Johns Bay Chino in the petites. So comfortable, perfect length, looked great on. Well, recently I forgot them on a trip to Mexico. I know I'll never see them again. And of course, the JCP no longer carries them. Several years ago, I had the opportunity of meeting MR.Penney himself in NY. I think the man would roll over in his grave if he saw what has happened to his stores in the past 2yrs.

We hope you continue to enjoy the affordable, quality apparel that you've come to expect from St. John's Bay."

Wow! There will be no Penny's after the generation currently patronizing the establishment dies. Baby boomers wont live forever. What then? Let's say they bring back all the inexpensive brands you are all complaining about. Ok, great now the apparel nobody under 50 cares about is back and thriving....Now flash forward 20-30 years. All of the customer base is taking the next and final journey of their lives and Penny's is filled to the brim with St Johns Bay. A brand that anyone under 30 and from middle income households has never even heard of. Not that income and age should be discriminated against but math is math. The appropriate corporate action would have been to integrate the product, marketing, and pricing changes over a longer period of time so as not to alienate current customers while at the same time attracting new ones. I am 34 and remember shopping at Penny's with my grandparents. It was fun until I was about 12. After that the clothing I cared about could not be found at Penny's. I have not been back since. This is a common story. Bottom line is that the Penny's you all love (or used to love) couldn't last anyway...not the way you want it to. But I guess from a purely selfish standpoint.....wait this is also the children of the generation that thought cars that run on gas was the best option right?

My daughter and I went to Penneys today. We have not been pleased with their new print advertising, lack of sales, and no coupons, but decided to go to the store. We had not been there in months and were shocked to see a store we did not recognize. Ugly polished concrete floors greeted us and the clothing looked like it was aimed at 16 - 23 year olds. We walked the store and saw nothing that appealed to us. My daughter loved the St. John's Bay brand and I loved the Cabin Creek brand for women. I am 63 and my daughter is 29 and we both were disappointed that our favorite store no longer exists. Please bring it back along with the brands we love. It is sad to see what our favorite store has become in the past year. There was nothing there I wanted to buy.

Please think of your customers instead of the deal your sales rep gave you. We are the ones that create a profit in the long run.

First let me say I have always been a loyal customer to JC Penney for years and could always find something there that would fit me perfectly, and the catalog department was the greatest thing, you could always order if you could not find it in the store. Like all the comments in this forum, I am completely disappointed in the store variety, brands and quality of product. Why would you change something that was working?
4/23/2013 8:09:26 PM
Spent over 1 hour in JCP on Fri looking for clothes. I looked carefully. There was nothing there for me as an adult baby boomer woman who is short. The merchandise is completely different and while colorful and pleasant-looking if you squint from a distance, it is cheap and flimsy and repetitive. Not JC Penney but something else, something much less. If I had wanted to buy my clothes at Target I would have gone there. Sadly, this is the way of America and nice woman's clothing is getting impossible to find. Frightening.

I tried buying my favorite brand pants online East 5th but there were none in stock. I decided to go to the store to get them. I haven't been to JC Penney's in awhile and boy was I shocked. The store has a totally different feel. There are no longer any good quality dress work clothes, no suits, NO EAST 5th Department at all!!!!! I don't want Worthington dress pants, I want East 5th. You have lost another customer, no need for me to ever go back.

JCP has disregarded it's core shopper. It's clearly agist and sexist approach to marketing is getting preditable results. For one thing, bring back Cabin Creek and St. John's Bay for women. Lose the robotic rhetoric that your employees (associates) are forced to spew. Honest interactions will pay off in the end.
It's too bad a good company as been dealt a nearly fatal blow. Shame on those who completely disregarded and disrespected the constant shopper who is not excited by fad merchandising.

Since the chang over last year, the store is not the same. Where is St John's Bay. Practically everything I owned was from that brand. There is very little petit inventory. The children's dept is not the same. In fact the store is not the same. The decor is great but the quality is not. Go back to the way it was.... please

I recently relocated, don't live near JCP anymore and went on their site to see about ordering up more St. John's Bay 3/4 sleeve t shirts and bi-stretch pants, staples in my work wardrobe, and couldn't find them. I've been reading the comments am surprised and disappointed that the store doesn't seem to be carrying that brand and possibly others for those of us who are mature professionals on a budget. You've lost me, and countless others as long-time customers. What are you thinking?

I shopped in your Cherry Hill store a few weeks ago, and found some great items on sale. I was so happy! Today, I logged on your website to do my Spring/ Summer work clothes order and wound up frustrated! The graphics showing the items were horrible, making everything look like gaudy thrift store items, the selection was scarce and when I did find items, they were out of stock!!
I loved the catalog of years gone by. Id select outfits, bedding ensembles with matching curtains, often spending hundreds every order! Online ordering used to be so simple, and I found myself having to use restraint to not overspend!
Today I placed a $400.00 order at Macy's.com. I think they are scooping up the online business you trashed. Good luck! You're going to need it!
4/20/2013 6:03:43 PM
I also can't believe the downturn of Penneys. I and my friends have always loved shopping there and now looks like they are doing away with the bed and bath port on of our store. Every time I go in there is less and less. Kids dept is ok yet, but all else looks like it came from good will store. You're also wasting money on the little catalog you send in the mail and I also get one in our newspaper. Why two - isn't that overkill and wastful? Items in that booklet are not in the store. Beautiful colors tho. Please bring back the store with good quality clothing, etc. We don't need more electronics or luggage. We can get that at Carson's or Kohl's! That is where I shop now - at least they have a LOT of inventory to choose from plus good sales!

I used to love JCP. Shopped there faithfully and clothed my whole family, until it changed so drastically that it was no longer family friendly. It is so strange and such a terrible shopping experience - I cringe at the thought of shopping there. I don't know if they will be able to bring back the family spirit of if it is lost forever. Everything there is wrong. It is a terrible experience. I have cut up my JCP card.

It's a shame what has happened to J.C. Penney's. I used to love to shop there but now I cannot find anything I like! The brands that used to be there (St. John's Bay, SB Performance, Stafford. etc) were quality products. I used to shop there regularly but now I can never find anything. The selection and the quality are terrible. I hope this company can do a turn around before it is too late. Bring back the proven brands and the higher quality that customers used to count on. I am very disappointed in the changes. I never shop there any more but would go back in a minute if the quality brands that used to be there were back.

My response. You are dreaming JCP. You guys suck. You will be dreaming of the days when you had jobs, stores, and some darn customers, You guys just drew down $850 MILLION DOLLARS IN CREDIT TO STAY AFLOAT WHEN ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS NOT GET FANCY AND SCREW THE CUSTOMERS!!!!!

I have been praying for the real JCP to return. I have been shopping there and through the catalog for most of my adult life. I'm so disappointed. I have to buy tall women's. My local store doesn't carry tall jeans I can wear so I have always been happy that I can find things online or in the catalog. Not any more. I have to shop at Kohl's now. Please bring back the catalog.
My Mom is house bound and I had to go online, copy paste and print the only 2 blouses they had in her size and take the photos to her! Please bring back the old catalog!!!The current catalog is a joke. I throw them away as soon as they arrive. I used to keep the old ones until they expired.
I was so upset when they took out the whole catalog department! If I ever do find something online I have to go pick it up at any register which has been very irritating. The cashiers don't know how to make the transaction and it's worse when I return an item, which is now almost anything I buy. Pleeese fix this!
I could always find anything buy tall pants in the store, now nothing; and where are the sales? I like sales, even if I just think Im getting a deal.
I am so sad that this is happening to a store I used to love.I will continue to pray that a miracle will happen to save and revive JCP.

I used to shop at JCP for my Big & Tall clothes. The last trip to the store offered very little variety for my needs as far as dress casual shirts and even less for khaki pants. Thus, I searched online this evening and found more of a selection, only to find that the site would not recognize my 20% off coupon. No more St John's Bay pants? You can forget about my business from here on out. What a joke...and the company wonders why it is struggling...

Destruction of a great American brand and institution. I wish Mr. Ullman the best. He should reach out to the past customers, admit mistakes and invite them back into the fold. Bring back your beloved brands like Cabin Creek (chino pants and camp shirts), St. John's Bay, East 5th, Ambrielle, etc. Have classic styles, from petite to tall. Forget the fancy designers, which are not why we go (rather, went) to Penneys. Respect us by not leaving stuff on your website that sold out many weeks ago. Offer clothes that your customers will actually wear and depend on if they are not a skinny 16-year-old and don't like garish colors and clingy synthetics. Bring back or rehire mature salespeople who care about being pleasant and helpful to customers.

I am not surprise that Mr. Johnson lost his job because of the mess he attempted to shove down his loyal customers throats! He no longer offered customers what they wanted such as St. John's Bay! He forgot about generations of customers who were the heart of JCP. He appears to be in his mid 40's, so why would he not consider the age and demographics of this vision he had for JCP that he attempted to shove down our throats! I don't mind paying for what I want and could really careless about a devilish coupon! It was how dare you only cater to the younger generation! REALLy! DID YOU THINK THAT STATEGY WOULD WORK! There should have been goods and services offered for all ages! So you could attract a variety of shoppers!

I'm so disgusted with JCP. I bought a pair of SJB jeans a year ago. They fit me perfectly. Now SJB has gone the way of the dinosaur. I won't wear skinny jeans. There is nothing to buy. The Catalog Dept is closed. I had to wait for someone to show up at the checkout and retrieve my item. The check out system is a total disaster. I hate it. The poor salesclerk had to scan my items on a hand scanner and then pull a bag out of her pocket. She then went across the store to another dept. for the receipt. This is a total mess and I'm not going back until things return to normal. Macy's, Dillard's and Kohl's do things the "Old Fashioned" way. JCP needs to go back and consider who it's customer base it. If I wanted to shop at the GAP, I would. The entire linen dept was empty of merchandise. This is a disaster.

Bring back the bi-annual catalogue!! I ordered *everything* from that catalogue--kids' clothes, adult clothes, lamps, rugs, shoes, boots, bed linens, towels, bathroom cabinets, chairs, bookshelves, etc.
Now I don't buy ANY of those things at Penney's anymore!
I miss the traditional, dependable, every-year items. For example, I would order several Cabin Creek winter and transition pants every year--and I loved the sizing options.
I sure hope they bring back that catalogue!

I agree that there could be more selection but I don't want the store to revert back to their old ways. My son finds great selection with the Arizona brand along with prices that allows him to purchase more items for his income. The quick check out during the holidays was convenient, but I understand the need for counters when purchasing many items. I hope that the new leadership will be able to merge the new with some of the old and still maintain the classy look. I am a Penney's fan.

Our prayers are answered....I hope! After several attempts to find any clothes and brands I was familiar with, I gave up! After several conversations at the checkout, no one had an answer to the "WHY" questions. Long time employees were as confused and depressed as the costomers..I saw shoppers my age walking out with nothing and others being vocal about it. Thank you and PLEASE bring back the brands that brought us to Pennys. And oh, get RID of all the tacky womens shoes. OMG...Thank you and hope for the best

JC Penney's problem is not only the change in pricing. They have taken away brands that alot of people miss very much and they are not catering to all ages like they used to. I am not going to get my grandfather to wear a bright orange shirt and I would not let my 13 Year old wear clothes that look like a prostitute wears. Some of us just want quality comfortable clothes and not necessarily the fashion runway.

Went out of my way to checkout your sale on shirts. Heres a suggestion. Stock enough of em so that a person has a chance to buy one. After people start buyying them restock them. Hire store clerks that are smart enough to know whats on sale and where its at. Your' store sucks. Buy cloths that are of decent quality. Dam . Did that boss guy you fired ever buy his own cloths ? Do you think he ever had a job where he operated a cash register ? Did he ever have to count change back to a customer ?

Announced last night that JCP has fired Ron Johnson. Right move, but too late., Even if the company brings back St Johns Bay and the other brands, this company is in a death spiral. I see bankruptcy within 1 to 2 years. Certainly magement will try to save the company, but they have lost their customer base and it's not coming back... Too bad.

Went to JC Penney yesterday to buy a new pair of St John's Bay jeans. These are the only jeans that I've been wearing for a few years. Very disappointed to find out you no longer carry them. I looked around to see if I could find something else and left empty handed.
I used to shop at your store all the time but find that the quality of the clothing and the styles are not what they used to be. Will have to now find another store to shop at.
Please consider bringing back St John's Bay clothing. From what I see I'm not the only person who wants them back.
Thank you for listening!

In this day and age of idenity theft why on earth would JCPenney do away with registers and counters? Paying for items with a credit card is personal and I don't wish to do it in the middle of a sales floor with anyone and everyone walking by. I was standing there (stressed out)with a armful of clothing while the the sales girl was trying to get the darn thing to work. After several attempts she had to take me halfway across the store to where they did have a register and ring me out on there. The sales girl also remarked that since they took registers away from the entrances shoplifters have been having a field day. What is wrong with you people? It's no wonder that you are losing customers/sales. Your leadership has no common sense.

I spent 2 hours at JCP today looking for several complete outfits for business meetings next week. I tried on more than 12 pieces of clothing and was so disappointed that they all went back on the shelf. I've shopped at JCP since my grandmother took me in my early 20's - but no more. I wasted 2 hours of my tight schedule today and walked out with one bra. They missed out on my cash as I would've spent several hundred dollars on shoes, belts, underclothes, etc but their choices in women is worse than I've ever seen and the quality is poor. May as well just close the doors as people aren't fooled any more.

At least 4 times in the last eight months I got specials offers or coupons from JC Penney (I've been shopping there since 1976). I looked at hundreds of items online and EVERYTHING was out of stock. I threw away the coupons, totally disgusted and feeling disrespected. I wore their St. John's Bay jeans for years and now they are gone. I personally think they are circling the drain. How sad.

I used to shop at JC Penney all the time for basic clothing and housewares. But it has been a long time since I've seen anything at JC Penney -- online or in the stores -- that I want to buy. The elimination of the St. John's Bay brand is a huge disappointment -- I spent a lot of money on basic pants and shirts in that brand for myself and my family. The reduction in quality of the company's other merchandise is another reason to stay away. Apple marketing isn't working with Penny's customers. If Penny's wants to woo younger, trendier customers, that's fine. But you don't turn off your current customers before you get the new ones on board -- not if you want to stay in business. Penny's didn't do that, and the company's days are numbered. I'm sorry to see it.

So many people who feel the same way as I do. I have been a loyal Penney's customer for a long time. I have been totally shocked at all the changes. I always stocked up on St. John's Bay tops. I can't find anything to replace them. Everything is so cheaply made now. Being a petite, it's hard to find things that fit. The material is thin, the cut is super skinny. Looking around at the general population, I'm wondering who can wear this clothing other than a few 12 year olds! Also used to buy all my husband's work clothing there. I am so disappointed! And don't get me started on the hand-held scanning devices for checking out. I was told that they are planning on checking you at as they walk around the store so that they can better serve customers. Translation: Angry customers not knowing who's next in line, fewer and fewer employee's who know next to nothing...

What has happened to the employee dress code at JCP? These ladies look like they just rolled out of bed...I have been there two days and two different locations and I saw seven employees wearing jeans with holes, T-shirts, sweatpants, hoodies, messy ponytails....even YOGA pants!!!!! Seriously..when customs are dressed better than the employees, there is a problem...I would be embarrassed to be in charge of these stores.

Went into my local store today. Empty shelves. They had towels opened long ways to make it appear there were more items than there actually was. Ask sales girl if they were closing. Her words...No we have stock coming in. Why let the store get this empty if you plan on staying open.

I grew up on good reasonable priced merchandise. Remember the best underwear in Towncraft. Sometimes you need to go back to what you were successful at. You have a great looking store in Overland Park. But right now I am just wondering who will go under first you or SEARS.

Well, I haven't liked the changes JC Penney has been making to their stores. However, today I was really disappointed in the company. For years I have bought St. John's Bay misses pants and now I see they are not carrying them anymore! The pants always fit perfectly and now I will be shopping elsewhere because nothing, and I mean nothing, that JC Penney carries anymore fits. When you have a good thing why change it? Shame on JC Penney for the below quality merchandise they are now carrying! They were my store to outfit my four children, six grandchildren and myself for years. No more!

well JC penney started last year with no coupons and fair and square deals without coupons.Now they r going back to coupons to attract more people,then adding that they r rewards not coupons---Come on--u need to accept fact that people will come to shop if they have coupons no matter if u call them coupons or not.They have this new hand held --scanners--No body likes them-as they r battery operated small devices there is no where to see the prices,and mature customers don't appreciate it at all.they need to have scanners like grocery store--1 by 1 scanning is time consuming,To top it all --there is no customer service separated from the rest---its just ridiculous to not be customer friendly!online order pick up is also delayed due to pick up at any register...oh----now they wont even have registers--just mini scanners------

Wow - such jaded commentary. I found the St. Johns brand didn't fit my very normal figure very well and welcome Joe Fresh. For heaven's sake at least applaud JCP for trying something new and upbeat. You have no idea how inexpensive these products are and yet you sound like typical consumers - you expect everything for nothing. I'm a consumer too but I also respect that these businesses have to be profitable in order to provide employment. Is it perfect? Not likely but it could be a lot worse with only one store to choose from.

JCP is supposed to be bringing back SJB clothes next month....
You get one chance at this JCP I will wait till the end of the month and go in. If I find my work clothes (SJB pants, the shirts are a bonus)and they are the same quality they used to be, I will stock up and buy like 5 pairs and be willing continue looking around your store for other buys no matter how difficult they are to find or to ring up. If they aren't there or if the quality of the material has suffered like the rest of what's in the store I will never attempt to shop in your store again. And for the record no I'm not a baby boomer. I'm 28 and haven't found anything worth buying in your store for the last 3-5 years.

Die Hard SJB wearer, Canada
4/3/2013 10:53:58 AM
As a Canadian shopper I would make two trips south to the US for shopping and usually stocked up on SJB for the season. A few times spent more than my customs quota at JCP alone. Just returned from a trip and a large store in AZ. After walking the store 3 times looking for SJB, I asked where it was. A helpful clerk walked me to a display - maybe 20 pairs - of cropped pants in 5 colors and 3 tee shirt syles and said they don`t carry anymore but to try the line Joe Fresh. I burst out laughing and explained we have in Canada in one of our supermarkets as a clothing line and most people call it weekend wear - it lasts one weekend. It is not for the office and it poorly made and the price point is horrible for the quality. She looked at me - and said its sold in a supermarket - I said yes and she blushed and went off to wait on someone else. I own every color and style of pants sweaters and jacket they made in SJB line. Needless to say JCP you lost a mega consumer - and to quote a movie line - big big mistake... Should it return I hope it is exactly the same and not a label on your JCP or Joe cheaply made items

I am so upset with JCP's changes and now to top it all off, I can't even get a simple trench coat or the Bi-Stretch pants anymore? Who exactly does JCP want to market to these days? At every turn, retailers are making consumers pay more for less quality AND we have to settle for whatever they throw on the racks because they have stopped making the basic essential staple garments that everyday people need! Don't just bring back the lines we want, bring back the quality as well!

Mr. Applehead Johnson has destroyed JCP. I hope my favorite sales person in Men's Ware is still there. He's been there since I started shopping there some 30 years ago.
My father was in department store retailing for the first half of his working life, just out of Harvard Business. He started in gift cards and ended up running the company's only store. Then he was promoted and started opening stores. He did that for another company.
I say this because if he were alive he would be laughing at the JCP Board of Directors. You bring in a guy from Apple; when you have the whole world of retailing to choose from. So far 20,000 people have been let go. Granted the economy stinks, but to throw away your customer base? To replace 30 year vets in cosmetics with (low wage) pretty little girls just out of college.
Mr. Applehead, you haven't got a clue. BOD, you better do something fast. Don't throw away your staff that has been working so hard for you TOO.
You know what, my brother worked for your company for his entire career; every single day of his entire career. A year before his retirement was to come due he died.
Take a guess at how many people from JCP came to his funeral. Even though he worked in your home office in Dallas, and was there every day for all those years: take a guess. Zero!

I'm in my early 30's and shopping at JCP was something our family did for years. My grandmother, aunts and now me and my own children. JCP always had just what I needed at just the right price and even lower! My curtains, patio decorations, maternity and children's clothes, work clothes. I'm extremely disappointed that the SJB line has been discontinued. I notice that they are trying to revamp their image to gain new customers but what about us loyal shoppers? Chase us away by getting rid of a line that sold and is very popular based not only on this forum's responses but other sites as well. I've never found pants that fit me and flattered me like the Bi Stretch Pants, had I known they were going to be gone forever I would have stocked up. Please reconsider, please bring back this line.

I am so hoping that someone from the higher ups at JCP will be reading this and all the other messages here regarding people's opinion of what's happening with JCP and IT'S NOT GOOD. I am mega disappointed in JCP. I shopped here all my life at JCP as they carried wonderful brands with good qualily items. Where for art thou St. John's Bay, CabinCreek, Worthington, Liz Baker. They've been pushed right off the ledge along with the rest of us loyal customers of many, many years. All my favorite brands are GONE and so am I but not out of choice. I can't get anything that fits anymore. JCP has totally forgotten about their loyal customers of the past. I know people have been very unhappy with the changes being made for quite some time and it seems like 'the higher ups' just do not give a rap about our opinions. They ask for it but they just don't pay attention. Even when shopping online, I can't tell you how much time I've wasted finding that everything I was interested in was out of stock. Talk about frustration on many levels. I'd so very much would love to be able to order pants that I just knew would fit and I walked away the happy customer. NO MORE. I sincerely am so very upset and from the looks of just this site, so is everyone else. How can a CEO not pay attention to this mass dissatisfaction amongst their loyal past customers. From the looks of things, I guess we simply just have an area to vent and that's about it. What an unhappy end to such a sad story.

Last time I shopped at JCP (about 2 years ago), I was so excited to get so many great tops, skirts and jeans on SALE! Everything was on the sale rack or marked way down and were brands I love (Worthington, St. Johns Bay, etc). This weekend (3/29/13) I went to JCP to use my $50 gift card on what I hoped would be a bunch of new Worthington tops and was severely disappointed. Although I ended up finding 2 dresses, that's all I found. I walked through the store and did not recognize anything that looked like the "old" JCP. It's looks so boutique-ish, fanch-schmancy, and the clothes are boring. Bring back the old JCP! Bring back the good old days when the store was jam-packed with people enjoying a great sale! It was downright depressing shopping on a Good Friday when everyone was off work....and hardly anyone was in JCP. :-(

I was very happy to find so many people feel the way I do! I work a very casual job and the St. John's Bay V-neck tees were my staple. I would purchase almost every color short-sleeve for spring/summer, and 3/4 sleeve for fall/winter. I am just sick that they are gone and their replacement is cheap and styled for a much younger (and thinner) crowd. My last trip to JCP was horrible. Not only missing my tees, but the transaction took forever for the couple of items I bought for my grandchildren because they were trying a pilot program of using IPads to check out instead of cash registers. Sorry, but sometimes I hate technology!!! There are times all it does is complicate life - not simplify!

I don't go shopping very often at the mall, but I needed some new bras and Ambrielle is a great brand for me and when I asked (after going to several different departments to find someone to help me) where that particular brand was she said it had been discontinued. I don't know if JCP stopped buying Ambrielle or if they went out of business. Besides the lack of staff in the stores, I noticed the lack of selection and a definitely thin, cheap look to the majority of the clothes.
Does anyone know who else sells Ambrielle?

I like the new pricing of JCPenneys. But,about three weeks ago I went to the store for spring clothes....Petites....and found it to no longer be what it was! Very little inventory, and what there was, was geared to the 25 and under age group. I didn't see any of the clothes that I had always purchased for work, either. I then checked out the underwear department ): . . . Throw rugs I used in my kitchen for years and years . . . gone. Checked on line today for the rugs....not there!!! So disappointed. It was always my go-to store for the "staples" I need for our clothing needs and home. Doesn't seem to fit the bill any longer!

I went to JCP to find they have new name brands and they no longer carry St. John's Bay. I don't like their new brands and there is nothing there I like so I stopped shopping there and now shop at Kohl's. I also don't like their new way of displaying their clothing it just looks empty. I guess that was their way of filling in the empty space after getting rid of SJB. I used to go to JCP everyweek at lunch time and leave with a bag now they have nothing I would buy. I am so disappointed in JCP. I will shop there again when the bring back SJB!!!!

Everytime my co-worker says, let go to JCP, I say for what they don't have anything worth buying.The new brands JCP has now sucks!!
Bring back the old brands like St.John's Bay. No wonder JCP in not doing well. Who ever made these changes should be fired!!!
Very disappointed in JCP!!!!!!!!

I went to JCP to find they no longer had St. John's Bay clothing. I do not like the clothing they have now. I don't shop at JCP anymore since they no longer have anything I like. Now I have started shopping in Kohl's. I will check JCP from time to time to see if they bring back SJB.

I am SOOOO frustrated! I used to buy all my work clothes at JCPenney. I told everyone it was MY store. I have just spent 4 hours looking for St John's Bay trousers and I can't find them anywhere. JCPenneys, YOU ARE NO LONGER MY STORE! How can you be when you don't carry clothes for regular people. If you are wise you will bring back the St John's Bay clothing line into the stores. That is the only way I will every buy anything there again. We were your loyal customers and you turned your back on us. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

I have shopped JC Penney my whole life and by the way, that's 59 years. I have worn Arizona original fit jeans for years. The fit was good and the price was right. Since JC Penney has changed their marketing strategies, it is no longer for anyone over 25 years old. I can't get the same jeans anymore, and I tried to order them online and they are not the same jeans or quality and the price has increased. For now anyway, I'm done with JC Penney until they market to everyone instead of a select few !!

I am done with JCPenny as of right now I am cutting up my credit card. I have bought St Johns Bay women's dress shoes there for a very long time. Now you no longer carry them and they are the only shoes I can wear to work. So until you bring back the St Johns Bay products I will no longer be shopping there..
3/23/2013 11:10:29 PM
JC Penny's what are you doing? I have shopped here all my life, but you have gotten rid of everything I love. Now, I'm finding that St. John's Bay is going--the only jeans that fit me right. Worthington is gone. You barely have women's suits that are for the 30s age group. Your styling choices are driving your chain out of business.

I have worn Stafford Full cut briefs for the past 30 years. Over the last few years they have changed the cut on several occasions going from better to worse and now they are constantly out of stock.

I am so disappointed in JCP. I have been a faithful customer for 50 years but no longer. Went this week and they have nothing I would buy anymore. Now shopping at Macys and CJBanks.
3/23/2013 8:08:05 AM
Agree with previous comments. No longer will I be shopping at JCP. I loved the SJB clothing line, Underscore Bras, Studio 1 dresses, etc. It is such a shame that JCP has self destructed after so many years. Will be shopping elsewhere from now on. Nothing can bring me back unless they go back to old tried and true clothing lines. May be too late for JCP to recover.

I have purchased St. John's Bay pants for many years. Several pairs, always for work or just out to eat. Went to order more and now I find JCP is not stocking them any more--why not? Many women I know LOVE St. John's Bay clothing. Who is doing the buying for JCP and no wonder things are not going well for your store. JCP used to be one of my favorite stores to shop in. Very disappointed. Bring back St. John's Bay, please............
3/22/2013 6:20:28 PM
I agree with all the previously posted comments regarding the SJB brand. Always purchased several women's tees (petites) every season...good fit, good quality fabric, good price. Can't believe after all theses years cannot get the basics. I won't be shopping JCP anymore either, unless they bring these back.

You discontinued St. Johns Bay jeans and those were the only kind I wear. This made JCP my go-to stop when shopping for clothes. I would often pick up shirts, footwear, outerwear, etc. when I went for new jeans. My wife usually shops with me, and would often find something there too. Honestly, there is no reason for me to go to JCP or browse your website any more. If you decide to bring them back, let me know - I'll be over at Kohl's.

BOTH my mom and myself have stopped shopping at JCP, since thier "new and improved" way of running the store. Every year for as many as I can remember I load up on the St. Johns Bay tanks and tees in summer and in the fall I get the 3/4 sleeve length tees. What crazy person decided to do away with such a popular brand. It looks lik JCP is trying to be a "fashion" store and cater to a young group and forget everyone else. My mom hates their "ads" and refuses to shop there any longer. Luckily there are other stores that now get my money and will continue to do so until they bring back the St Johns Bay brand. Hey...Kohls is right next door!!!

I love st johns bay petites clothing. Fits just right and comfortably! I went shopping for some spring clothing and there's no sjb in petites to be found! I went to ask a jcpenney specialist if I was just blind and couldn't spot them. Nope. The lady told me sjb was discontinued! No!!! She then told me they are slowly coming back tho. Yay!!! I do hope jcp brings back sjb petites! /crosses fingers.

I think JCPenny is trying very hard to go out of business. I was looking through the sale fliers in my sunday paper,and came across the JCPenny flier. The Intire flier was the same model. A young slim girl. There was 1 or 2 pictures on each page of the girl in different clothes. This was the biggest waste of advertising dollars I have ever seen. This Sale flier
was only appealing to young slim girls that like that style of clothes. There was nothing at all for adults,Kids or Children.
3/21/2013 9:33:58 AM
I ALWAYS bought St. John's Bay tall pants from Penney's online, and now they are not available. Thank goodness I bought several so I have long pants to wear. Can't find them anywhere. Why on earth did they get discontinued? None of the other tall pants fit. Please wise up and bring them back.

I agree with the many who ask why did you get rid of St.John's Bay ? I LOVED the t-shirts and polos, never ever walked in without buying several, and told everyone they were the best. Now I have no reason to go to JCP because your new brands don't even compare.

Truly hope you will bring back ladies SJB t-shirts, long-sleeved crew and 3/4-sleeved V-neck. The weight of cloth was far superior to what is being offered today (no show-through!)and the cotton came out of the dryer ready for the office or weekend without an iron necessary. These were the daily basics that I relied on JCP for, and hope to again. Otherwise, I'll have to find another source of daily basics and then won't need to check back.
3/18/2013 5:53:05 PM
SJB was my fav basic tee. If anyone can find similar tees please let me know. I always bought the short sleeve and 3/4 sleeve. What a shame.

I wasn't a huge fan of JCP, but it had it's perks! I LOVED the Adonna pajamas and haven't found anything equal since. However now you can find some amazing deals on the clearance racks! I bought a $2 prom dress a few days ago. Here are my suggestions:
1. The store set up is terrible and it's hard to find anything! Fix it!
2. The prices are outrageous for the current quality. Lower them. You don't need a 100% profit.
3. Find a clientele! The "hipster" thing only hits about 1-2% of people!
4. Bring back our beloveds!
5. Fire that stupid CEO. You can't hire a guy who has no clothing experience!
6. Don't lie, you advertise $5 shirts, but I can only find $10 shirts. The clearance racks say $14 and up, but they can be as low as $2!
7. Listen to us!

I have to say I am extremely upset that you no longer carry St. John's Bay bi stretch pants for women. Those were my most favorite pants ever!!! After reviewing the other comments that other women are leaving I see that I am NOT alone. JCPenney, why did you try to fix something that was not broke? I want St. John's Bay bi stretch back. They were durable, comfortable and a great price. I have 6 pair that I am trying to NOT wear out. Please I don't understand!!! Please bring these back. They were dressy and easy to care for...

You have lost my business. Your new clothing lines are very low quality. You discontinued St. John's Bay. I used to buy their active wear regularly. My husband liked their t-shirts and polo shirts. I also loved the Adonna pajamas (discontinued). When you have a hard time keeping items in stock, you don't discontinue them, you stock more! I returned the outfit I received for Christmas because it fit so poorly. The cashier wanted to give me a JCP gift card. I told her "No Way! I want a total refund. You have nothing here I want anymore!"
3/17/2013 11:08:58 AM
I have shopped in JC Penney's for all my adult life. I loved shopping there, I could always find whatever I needed at JCP. Not anymore. They got rid of the only line of clothes that fit and look good on me, St John's Bay. I have looked at their other lines and tried them on and they don't look or fit well. I always purchased St Johns for my husband, they were reasonably priced and fit great. Luckily, I did find a replacement for him, Lee's. I only hope that some other dept store will carry St John's Bay as I need to buy more pants and tops. Sorry JCP you lost me as a customer. JCP if you read forums you now know why you lost money last year, maybe you should replace the main man.

Putting away laundry this morning, I lovingly hung up a St John's Bay shirt for my husband, and thought to myself -- wonder if I can get it anywhere else but Pennies. Found this website, and am absolutely amazed!!! Never knew there were so many others out there that feel like I do. Where did my old beloved Pennies go??? I shopped there through thick and thin for almost 50 years. Refuse to go in the 2 stores in my area now, because it is horrible! I'm in my 70's -- not a young kid -- I want familiar and good quality, and couldn't find either and finally just walked away. I even had a 100.00 gift card to use up, and tried in vain to find things that fit or I would enjoy. Ended up taking them back and buying socks and jewelry just to use the card up. With no activity on my credit card for well over a year, do you think they are catching on??? Don't worry -- I'm finding new stores and moving on. Goodbye, Pennies of my youth!!
3/17/2013 12:14:26 AM
I never leave comments but I couldn't believe there are so many JC Penny Customers that share my thoughts about the new product line. I have been checking back at Penny's hoping new lines of clothing would be out and I might find something to buy. Let me tell you, I found absolutely nothing!!! I won't be going back and wasting my time. I can't believe they got rid of St Johns Bay T-Shirts that I loved so much. I Agee like the others. JC Penny has alienated the 40-60 group. They forgot we make up much of the population. Come on, at least carry the styles on line. I was a loyal shopper at Penny's for many years but they have lost my business. And hello, we're the age group with the money. Good Bye J Penny's!

I am glad to see that i am not the only one having issues with jcp.I only get my husbands t-shirts from there. Have for the past several years.Now I can't even get the stafford t's in the big and tall. St.john's bay has been out of the question for better than a year now and i cannot find the 5 xtra tall t's anywhere else. I dont know if they are trying to cater to smaller folks or what.But God did not make us all 1 size.The local jcp and the online store have gone downhill. I ordered two 3 packs of the stafford t's. They told me they were delivered to my home on the 9th.They never got here.They were going to just reorder and now those shirts are out of stock as well. Very frustrating to say the least.

Wanted to buy my go to St. Johns Bay T-shirts...not there. Tried on some JCPenny brands with spandex in them, didn't like the fit or the feel of the fabric. Went on line today to order the St. Johns Bay and they are gone! Now in search of a new brand and possibly another store to buy my basics.

Bring back St Johns Bay and your Former quality before it is too late. It would appear Ron Johnson has missed the mark entirely. PLEASE Bring back your former quality. Your products now run second best to Walmart. So disappointing. You have lost YET ANOTHER customer.

Joe Fresh, “The line is available at over 300 Canadian supermarkets and superstores, in addition to a number of stand-alone locations”. A design to compete, under sale Walmart who is moving into Canada.”
Search for “Wal-Mart pits its George vs. Joe Fresh” or click the link
Basically Joe Fresh is an in-house brand for a Canadian Walmart like store.
Ron is amazing isn’t he, JCP is just a hype machine. You can not use cell phone, tablet, computer dazzle to sell cheaply made clothing in bright light. Well, he is dazzling you with smoke and mirrors and it would be with coffee, but that company has pulled out of Ron's plans, seems companies are distancing themselves from Ron..
Most of those designer labels Ron has are also, "Made for JCP, this means you will not find them at Nordstorm, there is a reason, they would not have it, they are made to a target price with high profit margin built in, some upscale store isn't it.
Now do you know how Ron claims that his new mini stores are pulling in twice of more profit per square foot than the older parts of the store, he is selling you a product like Joe Fresh, designed to under cut an in house Walmart brand, man, you are going to like the way you look, I bet Ron bursts out laughing every time he sees someone in a Joe Fresh outfit, I know I would
LOL, for years the best deals you could get was a place with low overhead, may not look pretty, but stocked floor to ceiling, wall to wall, usually with surplus stock from companies like JCP that have gone belly up and someone buys their unsold stock. Ron vision seems to reverse this, slick store, cheesy ware, high profit.

I have stopped shopping at Penny's because they have discontinued just about every brand that I loved...Especially SB activewear. SB activewear fit so well and the quality was great. Now it seems like most of the brands they carry are thin and cheaply made. It has really gone down hill.

I'm am very disappointed that the St. John's Bay clothing line has been eliminated. I was told the new JCPenney line is what took it's place so I purchased quite a few items but ended up returning them because they do not fit the same. The new layout of the store is confusing and I can no longer find anything without traveling throughout the entire store which is frustrating and time-consuming. To be honest, it's no longer enjoyable or worthwhile to shop at JCPenney.

I've shopped at J C Penneys for many years. Bought all my nylons there, as well as St John's Bay tees and home goods. Last time I shopped there was about a month ago. I could not believe the changes, and not for the better. Stock was minimal, styles for older women nonexistent, nylons that I love discontinued. In short, I hated it. Have no plans to go back unless they reconsider their direction and bring back some of the favorites, I.e. St John's Bay tees and the wonderful nylons they used to sell.

Lately I've been hearing a lot of talk about JCpenneys trying to make a new image for themselves. I think this is a great idea; however you’re going about it the wrong way. In this writers opinion the company needs a new name; calling it JCP isn't good enough because that name still hold your original "JCpenneys". The last thing you want is people to say "I got it at Penney’s; it sounds like a store that’s for people who barely have 2 pennies to rub together. I’m not saying you should jack your prices up either. If you think about it JCP should be primarily be marketing towards college students. They’re poor yet still looking for what’s hot. This idea doesn’t just apply to clothing; college students need everything from bedding, towels, pots, pans etc. that being said, if you want the world to look at your differently you need to start with the kids... and kids don’t like what’s not “cool” because “JCP” isn’t cool.

I loved to shop at JCPenney and I am bummed that they've disposed of the St Johns' Bay clothing, especially the Pima Cotton shirts that were well made and comfortable. They also gave up the Barely There line and the Gloria Vanderbilt jeans, which I love. The store doesn't help me anymore so I'm going to Kohls.

3/11/2013 11:08:05 AM
I like natural fabrics, and St. John's Bay was by far one of the nicest brands JCP carried. I used to go to the store several times a year but don't anymore. The last time I was in the store, what little product they had was just racks of polyester crap.
I was in the store around Christmas of 2011. The coat dept. had tons of coats and the store was jammed with shoppers. I went again last Christmas and saw only a few single racks of coats around the perimeter of the coat dept., and cheap looking stuff at that. Lots of real estate, no product.
I predict that in a year or two these stores will cease to exist.
3/11/2013 8:43:16 AM
I agree. Levi priced themselves out of my jean price range, so started with St. John's Bay. Thought they were comfy and wore well. Then poof...
Gone. How sad. Store has less selection for men, and are really going for the teen customer with the flashy lights and eclectic background music. I was even willing to go along with their crappy decision for no more sales, thinking the company could save some money on advertising. But, they screwed that up too. To the company trolls on here who want to say 'everything is rosy', stop. We don't want propaganda or advertising... Just decide quality products for a reasonable price.

I was a loyal shopper at JCP for 20 plus years. Over that time I raised three children and two grand children. I would enjoy taking my family into our local store and talking to the sale associate's and a few associate would remember me by my name.
It has all changed. I go in their and I can't find anyone to assist me plus I have to wait in a long line just to have a question answer. Their is no check out on the second floor welcome shop lifters I end up putting all my items on a closes rack and left!
I am so disappointed in a store that I always enjoyed, it was worth waiting in traffic and looking for a parking space. You taken values that Mr. Penney himself built his reputation on and flushed down the toilet. Shame on you,

Nothing new at JC Penney that I care for

to something new that I have ever seen. If corporate espionage had anything to do with it - it worked. Competition for Sears, Macy's, etc is gone at Penney's

The fairly large selectiion of handbags they used to carry has dwindled down to maybe 2 brands. Thanks penney's besides not carrying SJB anymore or ambrielle this is another plus. Way to go

Well, I went to penney's today and saw that St. John's Bay was back in women's and men's! Yoohoo! Lots in men's, nice quality and smart style. In women's they had cute tees and nice capris; they also had tank tops which I never liked so I did not like them this time as well.
Jcpenney in my mall is very big and nice. They are having some remodels going on, so it's a bit crowed with stuff. Otherwise beautiful store with nice employees. And employees are always there too, working like little ants. Maybe because I shop on weekdays mornings only.
Overall, happy customers!

Are you sure you are not an employee and lieing through your teeth...?? Because I haven't seen St. Johns Bay at other stores and I do travel out of State. Maybe just maybe only Texas has that brand. You are so caught lieing, another Obama nutcase!!

Ron Johnson's guidence is nothing short of a disatater for JCP. His pusuit of the tween & teeny bopper market has not worked and he has alienated the middle class family market that built the company. The abandonment of the much loved St. John's Bay clothing line has got to rank as one of the dumbest retailing moves since "new coke"! An immeadeate change of leadership and reversal of stratedgy is Penny's only hope.
3/9/2013 1:39:25 PM
Good it should be a disaster
3/9/2013 1:36:43 PM
From all the comments I've read jcp apparently doesn't care what its customers want. I was told the jcp brand replaced the St. Johns Bay brand, well that's great if ur a teeny bopper. I happen to be 69 and liked SJB pants for work and casual. Why would a co. discontinue a brand that received mostly 5 star ratings.

I have been shopping at JCP for years and am very unhappy with the changes. I can no longer purchase my St. John's Bay pants that I wear to work and now I discover that I can no longer get my favorite bra. I have also purchased all of my quilts, curtains, etc from JCP but the choices they have now are limited and not my style.

I totally agree with the Shelby, TN comments. I too loved St. John's Bay and there petite clothing. Penny's is now very disappointing to shopping there. Apparently they don't care what there customers want. It used to be a nice store.
It is extremely limited in most departments.
3/9/2013 7:48:25 AM
I think the clothes are prettier than I've ever seen them. They are bright compared to dull Kohl's clothing. However, the newer lines seem to fit very small, which is disappointing. I personally like the new layout of the store and I think the pricing is very good. I seem to one of very few people who like the changes. My daughter-in-law says it is her new favorite store too.
3/8/2013 1:53:22 PM
To those who wonder why JCP is more heavily targeting teens and their moms, this sect (woops, well, had meant to say segment, but...) likely spends more money on clothes than older women and furthermore is impressionable enough that there is a perceived need to change wardrobes constantly to keep up with fads. It is likely all about where the CEO and Board think the market share is; who is gullible enough to keep spending the $$ on new clothing and fads. It is disappointing, but it is business. Similarly, this is why most movies are "action" "violence" "sex" -- only it's the 20-something male market that is the target in that case. It's about business and profits.
3/8/2013 6:12:05 PM
Well stated, except it's not about profits, it's about losses! Penny's just reported an unpresedented loss for their most recent quarter. The Teeny/Twenty something marketing strategy is a disaster!!!

I was soooo disappointed to see that Penneys has discontinued the St. John's Bay women's crew neck tops and replaced them with far inferior JCP labeled tops. Last year I bought several of the St. John's Bay tops in different colors. Went back this week to get some new ones and found they no longer carry them. The replacement JCP brand are sad substitutes, indeed, with the sizes not being true and the fabric and workmanship far inferior. Hey, JCP, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! Sadly, I must find my tops at another store now unless you bring them back.

my husband and I looked all over for my husband's favorite style of jeans and shirts from JCP -- tall jeans, and XL XT shirts. GONE!! It is VERY hard to find clothing for him; now must go online to those VERY expensive odd-size stores.
what a HUGE disappointment JCP has become....
2/28/2013 9:25:26 PM
Went to the Olean NY JCP store today to stock up on East 5th Street Tall Pants and to check out the new spring line of St Johns Bay. Couldn't find either one, so came home to order the tall pants online only to find that they have been discontinued. A sad day.
There were few customers at the retail store. The rural catalog stores are closing. The brands that I have relied on for my family are discontinued.
A very sad day.

3/8/2013 1:58:23 PM
YES, for me it was East 5th pants -- slim dress pants with no pockets in 4 L -- no where to be found! So many disappointments -- a certain style of shoe, underwear, etc.etc.
3/8/2013 1:42:59 PM
I am a very fit, young middle-age, professional career woman and no matter whether I can choose Nordstrom's I have always relied on JCP for reliable standards at reliable prices, such as a certain St. John's Bay women's shoe style. They are gone, online too. Reliable brands of trim dress slacks -- nope. Etc. Visiting a JCP store is a sad experience now, so I no longer do so.

I have had a Penneys credit card for 30 years. Shopped at Penneys when times were lean for good bargains and quality clothes and housegoods, and as I got older and could buy what I wanted, I shopped thereat leadt once a month. No more. The housewares are overpriced cheap junk...what happened to the JC Penney towels? Where are the cotton percale sheets? The clothes are awful. I'm not fat, but I'm not in my 20's anymore and I can't find anything that I would wear. My 19 year old daughter won't shop there..she prefers H & M or Express since she says Penneys is too xpensive for what she wears and for the styles.
Unfortunately, even if this Johnson is fired tomorrow, it won't bring back customers...we have all moved on. I honestly thinj Penneys will be gone a year from now. It's not really the lack of coupons and sales that drove the customers away...it's the new merchandise they brought in. Loyal Penneys customers won't buy that stuff and the young target customer won't either. Bye bye Penneys....sniff sniff

Count me among those totally unimpressed with the new jcp. I am a 35 year old woman that dresses conservatively and would stop and shop at my local jcpenney's at least once a week. Absolutely loved the st johns bay clothing line.
Now that all their clothes are of such poor quality and only made for skinny little teenage girls, I have completely given up. I haven't shopped there in months.
Any suggestions on where to find a line of clothing that is similiar to st johns bay?

I was one of the thousands of employees that lost their job do to the wonder Ron Johnson. I worked for JCPenney for 24 years and this man is nothing but a big joke and destroying a company that was a great place to work and people love to shop it now I'm embarrassed to say that I ever worked at JCPenny. I agree with the rest I haven't seen any St John Bay back in the stores either. I also think the employees look tacky the way they dress now heck u can't even tell Mangement from the regular associates!!! Somebody need to get him out of there.

I agree 100% - what have they done to JCP and to eliminate the St John's Bay clothing line is absurd! I shopped there all the time because of SJB clothing. I will take my business elsewhere from now on. I do not like the quality of JCP brand jeans at all. Bring back SJB
3/8/2013 9:04:32 AM
I went to our local Penney's yesterday. It's a wreck - remodeling (how do they have the money for that when they're so down?) for yet another "hip" brand shop aimed at young people. I also checked out the new stuff by Duro Olowu - just ok quality, and there were only 4 tiny racks of merchandise. They got that part right, because no one outside of the coasts and big cities is going to buy that line. It will go straight to clearance all across the country - it's WAY too busy and wild. Penney's core shopper is female and over 40. No matter how hard they try, they are not going to be able to bring in young people, who will keep shopping at Hollister, Abercrombie, American Eagle, Wet Seal, Forever 21, Kohl's and Target. Oh, and having employees slopping around in jeans and t-shirts in a dept. store is totally unprofessional. Dillards just won my business, if for no other reason than they have quality merchandise for WOMEN (not just teens) and their staff look and act professional. I'd rather pay the higher prices for better goods and a more pleasant shopping experience.

FIRE RON JOHNSON before he completely destroys a wonderful company. How incredible that a Board of Directors would allow this to happen, again and again.

Don't shop at JCP anymore as the brands I wore (St John's Bay) have been replaced with something that does not compare at all. Miss the old JCP. Replace the CEO with St Johns Bay. Many feel this way and I don't hear anyone that say anything good about the new JCP.

Bring back st johns bay!!! Your cheap poorly made jcpenny brand replacements are a joke! St johns bay was good style, fit well and was a decent price. Jcpenny was always my first stop and usually my last. Now I only walk through if the best parking spot at the mall is by their entrance(it usually is since no one shops at jcpenny anymore!) I can't find a new white under shirt that is as perfect as the one from st johns bay. Every other brand is thin and doesn't fit right. Get rid of that joke CEO Ron Johnson. Yes Ron, you are a joke! You ruined my favorite store! Add me to the list of ex-jcpenny customers...seems like the list never stops growing. Guess that's why sales are plummeting. Good job Ronny boy! A CEO only a mother could love!

I don"t feel like I'm shopping at a JC Penney store anymore. I walk in and feel like I'm at a Target or other similar store. The new clothing lines are disappointing especially when JC Penney seems to think that only the young and cool are the only shoppers. You are quickly losing an older group that has shopped at Penney's for several decades.

3/5/2013 9:25:24 AM
I too am very disappointed to see my two favorite brands (St. John's Bay and Ambrielle) go. I had switched over to Penney's about 12 years ago (from Sears, which has been steadily going down hill and has now totally lost my respect by selling trashy Kardashian merchandise)- but anyway, I loved shopping at Penneys this past decade, using the occasional $10 coupons and finding quality clothing that flattered and fit. When last I went to my local one, they were 1/2 way through renovating to this 'new normal' and instead of the St. John's Bay tees and pants I love, there was one shelf of 'Made for Life' tees, apparently the brand that has taken over for St. John's Bay--I bought one of the last v-neck 3/4 sleeve tees, it's similar but just not quite the same;the knit material is thinner. And the horrible name of the brand 'Made for Life' sounds like a prison sentence and is not a flattering one, makes me feel old (and I'm only 51) I didn't realize that Ambrielle was gone until I read this -- Damn! JC Penney has clearly shown where it wants its loyalty coming from. They better start respecting their middle-aged customers again or I'm out of there.

This store has really pushed away its loyal customers. What kind of a wake up call do the board of directors need? I can deal with the pricing, that's one thing, but there is NO selection. Brands and merchandise have been steadily disappearing. Once a very loyal customer, I have had enough. Kohl's is my new choice, they have their act together, great and ample selections, and great deals. In this economy, that is what most are looking for. If JCP is going to have a chance to survive, hire new leadership and FAST! It may already be too late!

I just have to add my 2 cents worth here. JC Penney was always a good department store, especially for linens and other home goods. They have always had a good selection of different products available. What in the heck are they thinking.... the last time I was in their store there was hardly any merchandise on the shelves. It was strange.
I am so disappointed in the lack of variety in all their departments. Hardly any selection and as far as the women's clothes go, forget it. The only brand left that is good is probably Levi's. So sad. I will be doing most of my shopping at Macy's and Bass Pro Shops.

Totally disappointed with JCP in the past year. I used to buy tons of great items from JCP and their website was so easy to navigate. Not anymore.The changes made at JCP are leading it into the grave. Everytime I go into any JCP now, there's rarely any customers around. I used to buy quality items at a great price. Now what they do sell is expensive junk that you can get the same quality for less than half price at the big box company buying from Asia.No wonder the investors are jumping this quickly sinking ship. Time to bring in somebody who knows how to manage this company instead of burying it. I think this had better happen immediately otherwise it may be too late to save JCP.

Also, I didn't had to stand in line for checkout, their associate had a portable credit card machine so they came to me and got my credit card swiped and finger signature taken on their machine.i thought it was very cool. Now every time I go the mall, I first stop at jcp to look ate their everyday new stylish collection

I went in the east Knoxville jc Penney tonight and was a little creeped out. There were NO customers at 8:30 pm on a Saturday night. Then I learned jc Penney no longer carries the East Fifth brand, which is the only reason I stopped in. Bad move! In rebranding themselves they've lost me as a customer.

Glad I found this forum. I felt like there had to be more people like me who feel completely alienated by the "new" JCPenneys. I tried the new setup after shopping at Penneys for practically my whole life (I'm 58). I went there as a kid, teen, young adult, as a mom, etc. It was my go to store for clothes,shoes, houesewares, linens,
gifts, all kinds of things. I wandered through the store of NO salespeople, NO staffed checkout registers, thinking, "What have they done to my store!?" I tried it and I hate it. Probably won't go back, but I miss it. I would go back if I felt like I could find the same variety and quality I could before.

You have totally ruined the store. Going there used to be like visiting an old friend, but not any more. I feel like I'm walking through Vegas. I'm a baby boomer. For 40 years I bought all my clothes in Penneys, (and most of my linens and housewares) but not any more. I can't find the brands I used to buy, I don't like the advertising totally directed at the teen and twenty-something age group. The housewares section has been reduced by half, can't find much there so have to buy on line. That is not what it used to be, and it takes weeks to get some items. Whereas I would go into Penney's at least once a week, sometimes twice, I haven't been in there more than 5 times in the last year since I can't find what I want any more. So very very sad what they have done to an institution because they have lost millions of loyal customers like me.

I am a retired 35 year JCP (1st level mgt asoc)and believe I see where RJ is taking JCP and Its not going to work. Penney has spent 100 years establishing themselves as middle class Americas Store and that's where they must remain. They will not reestablish themselves as a fashion place and they cant compete with the "Big Box " sores. So lets go back to 13 month long sales a year.

I don't even use the $10.00 JCP Rewards they email every month. What's to buy? I'm tall and have always found just what I wanted whenever I went into the store. Now nothing! Try to order online? A joke! To Whom It May Concern: Fire Ron Johnson TODAY! Do not wait another second. Please please please bring back the old JCPenneys.

I have always counted on Pennys to provide quality merchandise, and have been willing to pay for it. Classic clothes, classic cuts - merchandise that was well worth the money.
Well now, not only have you confused contemporary with trashy, you have downgraded the quality to "discount mart" wear! Really? it didn't occur to you that real adults have more money than tweens?

I agree. I have been a loyal JCPenney customer my entire life. St. John Bay was the best! I received a $10 coupon a couple of weeks ago. Spent almost an hour in the store - free money, right? Left empty handed. So you see, it's not just that they discontinued coupons. They discontinued tried and true brands.

I'm very frustrated with changes to JCPenney's men's dress shirts. I especially like the shirts titled 'Super Shirts.' They have always fit well in the past. But the shirts JCPenney is now shipping in this category are too tight, particularly in the arms. It's either an attempt to save costs in materials or to cater to a different crowd. The tighter shirts may be okay for a teenager or a recent college graduate but I'm a 50-year-old, extra-tall businessman, who has loved being able to obtain a well made, nicely fitting, dress shirt at a reasonable price. I'm very sorry to see that go away....

Announced today that JCP 4th quarter earning were a DISASTER! Ron Johnson has this company in a death spiral, and no wonder, All the new lines announced in the past year look like they were designed by hookers or cartoonists. In the latest ad "Meet Nick Wooster" Nick looks like a comic strip used car salesman! Pennys built it's business on offering quality clothing for the whole family at fair prices. They have abandoned that business model to concentrate on the teeny bopper crowd. The Irony of this story is Johnson is being paid $50 million to destroy this company! I fear that no matter what action is taken at this date, it is too late to save this fine old company...sad...sad.

Hi - I was a regular customer at Pennys for years and years....however, you did away with SBJ Active Wear. Best stuff I ever work to work out. You broke in flimsy material for a teen-ager and I hate the new store

I always shopped JPC on line. With the changes, I am having difficulty finding things in my size. I checked out our local Penneys and was disappointed. The store looked so empty. I noticed there was absolutely no activity at the catalog desk.When I look through the sale items on line I get frustrated and give up. Things I want are almost never available. I want my old JC Penney back.

I hope that someone at JCP reads this. I really, really miss the store. The goal of a real shopper with some money is to find good, no great, deals unexpectedly every so often. I am with whomever said that they have not bought one thing there since they put up the squares or whatever the heck those are in the ads. I used to frequent the stores and websites. I furnished an entire guest room - furniture, carpets, chair, mattresses, sheets, pictures, blinds and so on from JCP a couple of years ago. Now when I go to the website, I cannot find a thing. Even worse in the store. I am not impressed by tidy areas with limited quanties of the same thing. I want good stuff cheap, and I am willing to search and find it. It's all part of the shopping thing. I think maybe where they missed the mark is the following: They wanted to make the store young and cool, but the young cools were not even ever thinking about JCP and the store didn't really do enough when they switched to the 'squares' to attract them. If young cools want cheap stuff they will go to Target. And worse, they (JCP) totally forgot about me...the stressed out middle aged lady who loves to shop for a million different reasons (oh, by the way, I have money and a credit card) to buy Christmas presents for a huge family, buy stuff to fix up the house (well, two houses) repeatedly, buy sales of kids clothes and gifts for everyone and their mother, and sometimes just to buy stuff I don't need cause it is a great sale and it makes me feel good. They also forgot about my sisters, friends, and grandmother, who has had their credit card since the beginning of time. We don't shop there anymore. Fix it and we'll come back. I have a new remodeling project going on...............and I need some on sale bras and undies.....and I'll soon have a grandchild who will benefit from my shopping......and easter is coming and I'm having three parties in two days.....need an easter tablecloth, some gifts, and my grandmother needs some ne

I will not shop at JCP if they don't have ST Johns Bay. There is nothing else in the store that I want to buy. Cutting up my credit card as soon as the last few dollars are paid. The only clothes that I could count on to fit right were St Johns Bay. Another customer lost.

Also, forgot that the only bra that will fit me came from JCP (Ambrielle)and they quit making it, too. All they have are push-ups
2/24/2013 5:46:31 PM
Getting rid of St Johns Bay (and Cabin Creek too) was a blow to me. I know they are looking for the "modern" market, but they were staples that I've been turning to since I was in my 20's...that was 30 years ago. I saw it coming when everything online was CLEARANCE and usually unavailable. I grabbed everything I could, in 2 different sizes (just in case) and now I'm wearing them out and wondering what the heck I'm going to do. TALL sizes, it's the only place I could get pants that didn't cost $100. I can't affor that! Come on JCP, fire that CEO since he doesn't have a clue, simplify and cater to the niche who wants you, don't go courting someone who isn't interested! What a waste of a company. My first job was at JCP as well as my first credit card, which hasn't been used in awhile and won't be.

JCP can't attract new customers and is now alienating the loyal customers. Thanks for discontinuing the St. John's Bay cotton tee shirts and replacing them with the flimsy can't hold their shape JCP tee shirts. I hope they put some nice stores in the mall that carry petite sizes when JCP goes out of business. Great job JCP!
2/25/2013 2:31:53 PM
Do not like the new lay out at JC Penneys the old store was better. They had more of a selection I feel like it's downsized to where you can't find something really nice. Now in the Lingerie dept they are discontinuing Underscore Bra's hate the playtex wide straps don't have big shoulders and the wide is irritating. After 15 years now need to look for another style go back to the old way

Is it possible to put carts on the stores (similar to Kohls). I am a senior citizen and would like to shop more frequently at JCP. I have a very hard time walking tje store with my cane. I have suggested this to several employees, they say it doesn't help to mention this to the "higher-ups". I shop at Westfield Shopping Mall in Toledo, Ohio. Carol Ohio

The old store layout was perfect, not too crowded (as in an outlet store), and not too empty (Penney's isn't Saks 5th Avenue!). If they are trying to attract teenagers, it won't work. I have 19, 17, and 14 year old kids. They like the specialty stores that carry their own personal style. The new merchandise looks generic and boring. The bright colors are ridiculous. I am a 51 year old woman. I like well-made, not too trendy clothes. I'm in good shape, but I can't/won't wear stuff that's made for my daughters. On the other hand, I'm not quite ready for the "old lady" department. If you want a good laugh, check out the website, and click on Men's. When I saw that guy's picture in the latest magazine they sent I laughed out loud. A 70-year-old man in bright red tight pants and a shrunken blue blazer. That's the new look. Penney's was perfect for someone like me. Lots of adults like me, with lots of things we need to spend our money on, look for good-quality clothes at good prices, like they used to carry. Bring back the old Penney's!

I agree 100% with the others on this forum! I never usually post on things, but I had to add my 2 cents worth - JC Penney has ruined its own store! I am a petite, and Penney's used to be my #1 destination. No more! Our petite department is now about 10 x 10 worth of a mixed bag of odds and ends. No more St. John's Bay, my old favorite. What are they thinking?

I am also very dissapointed that the St. Johns Bay brand is no longer carried at JC Penny, the JC Penny brand does not fit the same at all. I do not understand why they stopped carrying it, great petite sizes and great selection of clothes.
2/22/2013 11:27:48 AM
I too quit shopping Penny's. I found St. John's Bay to be the best fitting jean for me and glad I bought several pairs in the past 2-3 years. Recently, I did go in search of an alternate outlet and I found that the St. John's Bay company had gone out of business due to its owner's legal issues. Guess we are out of luck.

I've shopped at JCPenney for years, but since the "New" Penneys have found very little to interest me. When they remodeled my local store, the departments seem to have a lot less in them. I was astonished at how few towels they actually carry in the store. Lingerie practically nonexistent compared to what it used to be. Shopping online is also bad since most of the items are listed as "Clearance" and then are not updated when no longer available. Don't they have a regular line anymore.....is everything clearance?

Just picked up my order. Jeans were correct. I wanted my St. John's Bay, but of course, they have been discontinued, as was the Cabin Creek line. I had to order Lee brand and they are so-so. What irritated the most was the underware I ordered for our son. I didn't receive the ones I ordered at Christmas for him, so I tried again. When they opened the order at the cash register, the package contained a ladies jacket and t shirts. The manager and girl working the register both verified the packing slip and my order were for men's underware, but the package certainly did not contain that. JCP is NOT the reputable company it was. JCP is dying and their CEO and corporate management certainly do not care!!!k6fw

I've been a loyal JCP shopper for over 30 years, but I'm done. My husband and I went to the store in Monroeville, PA, because I had a $10 birthday certificate. We walked around for an hour and could not find anything we wanted to buy, no matter what the price. Then our feet started to hurt because the floor is made of bare cement! There was a man wearing a bright red blazer walking around the store...made us feel very uncomfortable. We made our way to Macy's and bought several shopping bags full of clothing.

The catalog department is terrible now. Half the stuff online is always out of stock. I bought a steam mop and when i drove the 30 min to pick it up at the store i got mop pads only. My next order i got called it was in, went to the store no one could find it. They call me a couple of days later and tell me it is not in the computer so I will have to describe it when i get their. Now i am waiting on shoes I ordered 8 days ago that have not shiped yet. I hate picking up items at the register. Their is never any help and they have to leave the register go to the back of the store to get your order. While you are standing at the register with a line behind you giving you dirty looks. Why did they get rid of the catalog desk? I'm done shopping with them. I have had enough of poor customer service.

I've worn St. John's Bay clothes for 20 years and I really miss them! This year at Christmas, I bought all of my new shirts and jeans from Belk and Kohls. I couldn't even buy my daughters clothes at JCPenney this year--there was nothing they liked! What a shame to see a great place go down the drain and drop loyal customers like this.
2/13/2013 11:41:54 PM
St. Johns Bay jeans are my choice. I hope you reconsider dropping them as I have gone out of my way to shop at JCP for years primarily for SJB and now I will be going elsewhere. Seems I am not the only costumer you will lose. Please reconsider and let me know.

I used to not shop JCP because it wasn't as affordable for me long ago, now I love the clothing (I still can buy St John's Bay in my store) I always shop for name brand clothes for my 8 year old and almost 3 year old girls in my store. I buy my professional dress attire there also. All employees are very courteous and extremely helpful. I worked in the retail industry for 5 years and I have experienced customer service to all degrees both bad and good. I have a JCP card because I do most of my shopping there. I enjoy the Worthington dress shoes the most and still buy them for their comfort and (similar) comparability to Nine West black pumps. I can purchase 2 pairs of Worthington pumps for just under the price of one pair of Nine West. Quality is a bit less than expected, but I get my shoes reparied locally for cheap, because I really like the look and style. I regularly get texts with $$ off that I use at the checkstand, so on sale products are even cheaper for me. I like the new JCP for it's more affordable price point that goes hand in hand with the struggling American economy. It tailors to all classes of people. If you don't like what your options are at JCP, you can certainly go pay double or triple the price at Macy's for a similar item. JCP works for me.

Was always a loyal fan of penney's, but the quality of clothes is horrific! Spandex tank tops for work easily snag and everything is so thin- skirts, pants, shirts. The dress shoes look like pleather too. Will not waste my time again in Penney's. Management is not listening to customer feedback.

Your clothes are wonderful and the prices are great Im just a picky person but there was a wonderful young lady by the name of Billie that was so nice and so helpful in trying to help me find something and eventually she did help me find the perfect shirt. I wish there were more employees like her and because of her I will continue to keep coming back and hopefully will see her there to help me cause she really made my day.

I agree with the majority of the comments re: St. John's Bay clothing becoming available through an alternate source. The majority of my clothing (i.e. jeans, flannel shirts, summer shirts, etc.) is St. John's Bay.
This past Christmas I had to purchase alternate jeans (Lee) that just do not feel the same. Also have not been able to find any comparable flannel winter long sleeved shirts with square bottoms.

I have also been looking for some of the traditional JCP lines, most recently St. John's Bay women's activewear. I loved their SofTech petite fleece pants and wore them to the gym daily. Some manufacturer made them so they must be sold somewhere else. If JCP has chosen to only carry more expensive lines now, they should tell us all where we can buy these former lines now.

I feel like I've lost an old friend. JC Penney has morphed into a teeny-bopper store and no longer carries my favorite St. John's Bay tee shirts and other items. The underwear racks are smaller and crammed together, with few bra choices other than the ubiquitous push-up models. Home decor shelves in my store were nearly empty. Twice I almost walked into the ugly white faceless mannequins lined up single file in the middle of the aisles. I did not see any "going out of business" signs, but the store certainly looked as if its days are numbered. Hopefully top management will realize that the fastest growing demographic in the US is the senior population, not the teens. And seniors have more money to spend. Bring back St. John's Bay, Arizona, good business wear, bedding, lamps and the other stalwarts you've discarded. Nix the expensive glossy monthly catalogs, keep prices at even numbers (e.g. $9.00), trash the mannequins in the aisles, and give us some American-made products on the shelves, and you just might be able to turn JCP around and make it a destination for shoppers once again.

Really, really not happy with the new JCP! First off, discontinuing St. John's Bay clothing for misses/women is a HUGE mistake. Hate the new pricing structure and the buttons promo at Christmas was fine until you went to use two coupons together and were told NO WAY! Really??? Would it kill you to give me $10 off a single item? I used to get $10 off coupons in the mail for no reason at all! Miss the Liz Claiborne jeans for misses/women, and you have no Dockers shirts for men anymore. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.........

I have been a loyal JCP shopper for more than 35 years. Since JCP decided to quit carrying St John's Bay, Cabin Creek, & Worthington, along with Gloria Vanderbilt jeans, I can no longer find anything to buy. The quality of the current clothing , as well as the housewares, is cheap, to say the least. Clothing styles are aimed at the 20-35 age group. HELLO! What about the rest of us? What a shame they have decided to alienate the majority of their customers. At this rate, JCP won't be around long. Corporate needs to rethink Ron Johnson's strategy for making over the company before it goes under.

Just found out that JC Penney has stopped carrying the East 5th line of pants and no one else carries it either. I've tried shopping there for the last year and found that everything is geared towards much younger shoppers. When will they realize that their market is really those of us who depend on Penney's to carry wardrobe staples for adults. I used to buy all of my work clothes from them and now they look just like every other store trying to carry the lastest trend with the lowest quality. In case their marketing people are not paying any attention, their is a huge senior market out here that no one seems to be paying any attention to....

Im so disappointed with JCP. I lost my receipt. I called 1 800 322-1189 Corporate Office in Plano Texas. I spoke to two supervisor they said I can return my item with no problem at any JCP location. I went to do my return with Craig The Store Manager at Stockton California #1156 phone number 209 951-1110. He said he don't do Happy Returns. I told him Corporate told me to advice him they said to return my item. He also said "He Don't Care What Coporate say". Ron Johnson I think you better educate your employee's on your Happy Return's. False Advertisment Lawsuit will be the next step for JCP Customers. Class Action Lawsuit. Have anyone experience a dissatisfied "Happy Return"?

Penney's advertising is so dumb... they give a price for one of their house brand items and compare it to somewhere else. However, their brands, like Worthington, are ONLY sold at Penneys. They should be fined for false advertising.

The new JCPenney carries much cheaper clothing and I can't find anything to buy. I have counted on Lauren flats 7.5W for years, now they are gone. Not sure what to do now. Also miss the St John Bay pull on denim pants/leggings. The change is not for the better and I fear JCPenney will go out of business. I can't support them with this merchandise.

Bring back St Johns Bay. Loved how the pants fit. Can't find anything in the store now that fits, so I will have to go elsewhere

I am one of the disgruntled shoppers who has left JC Penney. The last time I was in one of the stores I felt like I was in Russia; money to spend and nothing to buy. This was the first holiday season that I did not set foot in a JC Penney store. The last comforter I bought was a piece of crap and I will NOT return to a store until the St John's Bay Line is back. Sad thing is, this moron whose "vision" took the store in this direction will probably get a gazillion dollar bonus for his failed changes. Disgusting.
2/1/2013 9:54:42 PM
Please go back to the good brands Penney's had for so many years. The clothing you have now is for kids and teenagers. Older ladies and gentlemen are the folks that kept this store in business. Prices were higher but the quality was much better. Cutting down the number of checkouts has also been a mistake. If something is not done fast, Penney's will be a thing of the past.
The thing that really hurt this store is the advertisements with gay couples. As a Christian nation, Americans will not frequent a store with this image, me included.

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why you discontinued your St. John's Bay line of clothing. The pants, jeans, cords...were my favorite. It is so depressing. As a waitress, for years, I have purchased several pairs of black bootleg cords annually. They are comfy, fit and flatter a variety of body shapes and sizes. They were made really well. At this rate, I choose to go to the walmart down the road from my local penneys store, as the clothes are now about the same quality, and walmart is alot cheaper. I am a very dissatisfied customer. And pushed right back through the doors of walmart. Thanks alot.

JCP what has happened? I shopped at your Montclair, CA & Victoria Gardens, CA stores and loved buying East 5th Avenue, the shirts & pants fit great.
I loved the St. Johns Bay Tee Shirts, they are wonderful, but now you don't carry either one of these brands anymore.
The clothing is trendy, looks like the clothing is for pre-teens and teenagers, not for us ladies.
JCP your stores used to have class, the clothes you carried had class, not anymore.
JCP bring back the styles that were classy and the brands that fit.

I just went on to JCP site to buy my fav St John's Bay Tees, but couldn't find them - or anything like them. The price was right, the fit was great and the washing/wear was the best. What happened? I bought two of every color last year on 1/23/2012 and I'm ready to buy MORE. Don't see anything like them on their site that rocks me. So what do I do now???

Goodbye JCP, I used to shop weekly for work clothes -- not 'frumpy' clothing but solid, dress pants, jackets, blouses, shells. First the colors and patterns went trendy, then the styles. Now it seems that you can't buy a single blouse that does not have dreadful sequins or beads or seriously ugly styling. I'm okay with fun, trendy throwaway fashion, but I also need reliable, durable basics. Good luck finding dressy work suits and clothing at a reasonable price. No wonder everyone is starting to sew their own clothes again. It's not just the economy!

I TOTALLY miss the St. Johns Bay collection of shoes, shirts, pants, etc. I have always been a faithful shopper and customer but hard to stay loyal when you can't find anything you want or need anymore. Please consider bringing back the St. Johns Bay Collection.

I, too, am very disappointed regarding the St. John's Bay line of clothing for women. I have been buying the black stretch pants and v-neck t-shirts for years. It made it possible to stop in, grab a few in my size and leave the store. I was surprised this past fall when I was unable to restock my t-shirts, but after last weekend when I found that they no longer carry my pants, I left the store empty handed and very disappointed. Who has time to try on pants to find a new brand? Not me.

Other brands like Lee just don't seem to have the same cut for their tall customers. I went to Penneys yesterday and didn't find a single thing to buy. I'm very dissappointed with there marketing stragey changes. I'm sure Penny's will be non-existent in the next 5 years. Too bad.

I had found the jeans to be some that I could wear, and my husband works outside and loved the long sleeved T Shirts. So disappointing. My mom gave me a $60 gift card for Christmas. I have been to the store in Altus twice and can't find anything! I am afraid who ever is making the corporate decisions is trying to run JC Penneys into the ground.....and he/she is succeeding!

I'm so disappointed in JCP ! No St Johns Bay, South Pole and other favorite lines don't exist anymore. Now just a bunch of junk! And they claim at lower prices! Not! No more good deals with coupons and points and just plain FUN shopping. Also, they let the store manager at Marley Station, "Gary" , go around the same time they made all the changes. He always spoke with customers, laughed, and got to know people. My guess is that they appointed a man at the top at JCP, that doesn't know a lick about shopping, marketing, quality, value or even Women as far as that goes!
RIP JC Penny, I'm not wasting my time in your store.

The other day I went to JCPenney's website to buy some St. John's Bay ribbed turtlenecks only to discover they no longer carry them. What gives? I really wanted to buy more of them because they're very warm, look nice, and are great for wearing to work. I've been losing faith in JCP for a while because they seem to lack good clothes these days, and the clothes that are good always seem to be out of stock. The only thing there that's still worth buying to me are the Worthington career pants. I hope JCP doesn't get rid of those cause if they go, then I'm going too.

Well I must say, I'm swimming against the tide here. I hardly ever engage in online discussion/review but in this case, since my opinion is so different from everyone else's, I felt I should. I probably haven't shopped at jcp for 30 years - in fact, I don't know that I've ever bought anything there at all until recently. In the past 6 months the new promotion has caught my eye and I went in the store. I'm 49 years old and most of my life I've shopped at JCrew and similar (now I really like Madewell), but the jcp line of clothes has some great items that are well made, good quality and to me seem INEXPENSIVE after what I'm used to paying at the other stores! Just bought two cotton button up shirts (love the blue gingham) and showed my 18 year old fashionista daughter the tangerine striped tee I also bought - she immediately asked to borrow it. So, jcp, take heart - you've got at least one new customer in me!

I am extremely disappointed in JCP. My size is on the border line between petites and the next size up. I was always able to find jeans, pants for work (Twill) and plenty of shirts to fit in the St. Johns Bay brand. St. Johns Bay items were perfect for me and I loved them. I spent big bucks on St Johns Bay stuff, but now that JCP doesn't have them, I won't be spending much time at JCP anymore. The problem is that now it's extremely difficult to find clothes to fit me anywhere. I really would like to know what happened. I was told over and over that St. Johns Bay were your best selling items.

EVERYONE who comes into this department has complained about this!" But where can you get St.John's bay cothes now?
1/20/2013 8:39:47 PM
JC Penneys stood for reliable, durable, comfortable. I tried to get my favorite bi-stretch St. John's Bay brand and you don't carry them. Your web site is awful as well. You keep items on the sale page even when there is only one size and one color available. After hitting about three of these items, I closed out of it. You are really losing a lot of customers.

I'm trying to look for nice suits for my fiance and groomsmen. I find stuff that I like, but either half the suit is on clearance, or something that is still going at full price has nothing in stock. I'd I've checked back at their website at several different times. Beginning of December, end of December, and now. It's always the same thing. I'd like to have all the groomsman have the same suits, but JCP is making this difficult. I'm going to try and go into the actual stores the next few days, but I feel I will have the same results.

Penneys used to have a good selection but now the clothes are cheap looking and ugly, ugly, ugly. I would not buy anything. When I went looking in the juniors section for my 12 year old, I was appalled at the low cut and suggestive clothing. They should call this department jr prostitute because that's what it looks like.

We were soooo disappointed when we visited the Ontario Mills J.C.Penny's Outlet Store. We have shopped there for years and they had the best clothes and buys of any store we have ever been in. Now i understand another company bought out the outlet store and J.C. Pennys is allowing them to keep their name much to the dis-service of JCPennys due to the merchandise thats available now. Really cheap looking clothes all made in China and not worth the price at all. It was disheartening to drive 70 miles only to find that the outlet store really sucks now. :(
1/15/2013 1:55:56 PM
I rarely visit JC Penney. Since all of the changes, I can't find my favorite brands. Gloria Vanderbilt petite pants one of my favorites (great fit) no longer available and were not replaced by any other brand of the same fit or quality. They don't stock many petite sizes in the brands they do have. Easy Spirit Shoes are no longer available either. It has become increasingly difficult to find an associate when one needs assistance.Customer service is out the window! JC Penny also did away with the outlet store in Milwaukee. It was a great place to browse when I wasn't looking for any one particular item. I never knew what I would find but I never left without purchasing a cart full of merchandise. Picking up an online order has become a chore as they have done away with the catalog pick up desk. One has to wait in line at the front register with in store shoppers, Then, wait until an associate can go look for the order in the back of the store...more time waiting. What are they thinking? Todays consumers do not want to waste time waiting in line. JC Penney is no longer the great store I knew. Bottom line, no service, no customers, no sales.

I can't shop on line - have to try things on! Come on JCP, let's rethink this.
12/11/2012 4:17:52 PM
I have worked at JCP for a number of years, and I can sympathize with you in the fact that losing a favorite brand or what have you, sucks. But, lets be honest here...ST John's Bay was of poor material, a bland brand that had the same style t-shirts and pants season after season with only the settle change to the graphic on the front of their shirts. They made JCP look cheap and dirty from the inside. And I for one am glad JCP is weaving out the poor quality made products.

The polos sucked - but the t-shirts were awesome. The fact they didn't change year after year are exactly what I'm looking for. A simple black t-shirt to lunge in on the weekends or to wear as an undershirt. They were much better quality than the new jcp branded crappy shirts. I don't change my style with the seasons. I want something reliable and consistent. I don't have a schizophrenic need to change styles every time some idiot in NY or Paris wants to do something different. I don't follow the market. I know what I like and don't need to be sold to like a child. I want to buy the same shirt when my old one wears out.

I totally disagree with you. The SJB pants wore extremely well, fit great, both the jeans and regular pants. I have worn the for years so trust me I know!!

Went to the store to get new jeans and was informed that they had done away with them and replaced it with the JCP brand, from what I saw of the new brand it looked cheap and not very appealing to the age group I am in (50-60).

I'm also disappointed in JC Penney. I went there specifically to purchase a pair of women's Lee jeans and they don't carry them anymore. I went to the men's department and there were hundreds of sizes and styles. anytime soon. I can find them on line, but I need to try on every pair of pants I buy, so that doesn't do me any good. I don't think I'll be shopping at Penney's anytime soon.

My mother worked at Penneys for nearly thirty years. I practically grew up there. I've seen the store change many times over the years. I'm sad that they no longer carry the St Johns brand t-shirts and jeans. I also miss the Easy Spirit shoes. I feel they are trying to appeal to the folks that shop at Macys. But I don't fit the Macys model. I'm a rounded pear shape, and need clothes that fit me not a slim, tall model.
Penneys management needs to realize that some of us want a balance between comfort and style, especially those of us over 40. We have money to spend on ourselves when we find what we like.

I dress them up and wear them for casual, and I LOVED the fact that I could go online and order exactly what I wanted without the hassle of the shopping mall. They are of good quality and I generally buy more just to mix up the colors. JCPENNEY's has made a big mistake in discontinuing carrying this brand and is losing many loyal customers, including this one.

I have been buying all my pants at penny's for years, talls, mostly SJB and really do not understand why they quit selling them. I am a 72 year old women and it seems that penny's like most stores has decided to cater to much younger people! Not all older people want to wear old people clothes!!!!! I am sooooo disappointed in penny's, hopefully they read this site and maybe bring back SJB!!!!

I walked into their Home Store today(it's a separate building from clothing) and I walked out after seeing it looked just like the clothing store. I have shopped at Penneys for 40 years but no longer do since the revamp.

I agree with everyone else. I have been
purchasing St.John's Bay from Penney's for years. I am totally disappointed that they stopped selling this brand. I will go somewhere else to do my shopping now. No reason to even look at their website.
1/8/2013 11:14:05 AM
I am with most of the women on this forum in regards to JCP closing out the SJB line. I am a woman with curves, and the SJB jeans FIT! I also have a farm, and i can contest that the jeans are durable and last a very long time. I went to many JCP in my area, and online to try to get more before they closed it out completely, but apparently i was to late. If there is this many women that want this brand, who WERE loyal shoppers to JCP, you would think they would bring it back. But apparently JCP is trying to bring in a younger generation that doesn't understand what QUALITY clothes are, that they don't have to cost a mint, and there are choices in colors, not the ugly drab colors that are available now. DISAPPOINTED & DISGUSTED in Ohio.. *if anyone knows where to get good jeans for women with curves, please post it!*

I am disgusted with JCPenny!!!!! I always bought their St. Johns bay clothing as it was a good fit and price. The new clothes are not for "real women" as I tried on exlarge shirts and none fit. The older crowd like me kept coming back. The younger crowd won't even though you are now catering to them. Shame on you, I was a loyal customer for many, many years. You lost me now.

I cant agree more! The ambriella bras were the last thing I would go shopping for at jcp. I even have a credit card with them...I will prob be paying that off and closing that account! No use having it if there's nothing worth buying! I went to the store today and bought as many of these bras in my size I could find! Bring back the bras jcp!

I could not agree more when it comes to JCP not carrying the Ambrielle bras. Looked in the store today and there is nothing comparable - this is my last effort to shop at JCP. Your marketing has challenged shoppers - and I can tell others feel as I do. There were perhaps 3 people in the store today - do you really wonder why?

I am very disappointed with JC Pennys new store I have always bought capri's forever made by St. John Bay almost every color. Every year they are great to wear to work during the spring, summer, fall, and the liz clairborne shirts they have now are awful.
Wells I guess I will search online and find st john bays clothing somewhere else. Guess JC Pennys lost my clothing business. I am one who does not like to shop so when I go I ususal get about 10 pants & shirts And I also miss the Lee Jeans. JC Pennys has always been a nice store and the ST Johns was always consist and the quality was good nice & casual, simple clothing and very easy to dress up with accesories.

I have always loved JCP. I am 50 now. Two years ago on Black Friday, I purchased a wool/cashmere blend pea coat which I just love. It is soft and does not pill or need attention with a lint brush. The brand is St. John's Bay. I wanted to purchase another coat or two in different colors, but now that JCP doesn't carry the brand, I can't. No other coat that I have looked at compares to this one. The coat retailed for $200, but I purchased it on sale for $49. I would pay full price for another coat like this if JCP still carried it.

I was a relatively new shopper to JCP. I, like many others here, was estactic with the St. John's Bay pants. Why would they choose to no longer carry them. Last few times in the store I did not find anything to purchase. Am about ready to give up. BRING BACK ST. JOHN'S BAY!!!

The St. John's Bay shoes fit me better than any shoe. If I wear most other brands, my feet hurt and I start having bunion pain. I'm only in my 30's and don't want to buy old school looking shoes. So who else makes shoes that fit like St. John's Bay that are stylish and affordable?

Where is my St. John's Bay? If I knew they would discontinuing St. John's pants I would have bought 10 pairs. They were classic good material washed well colors did not fade. They current store selection sucks. Liz Claiborne doesnt fit the same.
So disappointed-will not shop at JCP anymore. They selection today looked like something from 1982.

Does JCP have an equivalent to St. John's Bay Loose Fit pants? These pants actually fit my husband and I need to buy him new ones.

So very disappointed that the quality and selection at JCPenney has gone down hill.
I won't be shopping there anymore.
The "styles" are ugly and the colors are horrible.
Hereafter, I'll be saving my money to shop sales at better quality department stores.

I very much agree with all of the comments posted here. I too have shopped JcP for many (30) years. I am very disappointed in the changes and the lack of selection. In fact, I am so angry at the loss of the East Fifth, St. John's Bay, and limited Worthington selection that I will not even give the "new" JCP brands a try. Obviously the new CEO doesn't care about the feedback. I could always count on JCP to have what I wanted, in my size, and plenty of availability. Talk about horrible looking clothes. I wouldn't even consider trying on the items they have in the stores now! Looks like I will be touring other department stores and find a new place to spend my money. Good-bye JCP. It was nice knowing you!

I have been so frustrated with Penneys that I am posting for the first time. I agree with every poster in this forum. I have shopped at Penneys my entire life. I spend money on a regular basis at Penneys. I always have recommended them to friends. Now I cannot find one single pair of pants that fit my middle aged body. I am beyond disappointed and angry. People my age spend money and are loyal. Why has Penneys decided to throw us under the bus? Can't even find my favorite items online.

I used to love Penneys, but now I don't think I will go back again. St.John's Bay were the only clothes that I would buy there, and now they are gone. I don't like the way the mailers look, and I like the old coupon way of discounts and sales. I am 64 and it is hard to find clothes anymore that are for women in my age group. Everything is skinny, cropped, or just ugly.

Had been buying all my dress shirts for work at JC Penney's for many years. The Stafford Performance Super Shirts with the expandable colar are the best. They look great and wear well, but JC Penneys no longer carries them, unfortunately mine were worn hard and need replacing and I would buy at least one or two dozen of them now if they had them in stock. If Penneys does not stock them soon, I will have to go to shop elsewhere. BTW, there were several other guys in my office who also wore and bought only these shirts. If they were smart, they would not only restock their stores with them, they would also expand the color selections and market them - with the poor state of our economy, men need great quality dress shirts at a reasonable price - this is the shirt to buy (I could write you a winning commercial guaranteed to turn a profit and get your store up and running again). Please restock!!!

I have been purchasing Worthington career clothing for years at JCP. I recently bought a pair, and I was shocked at the poor quality of the fabric. These are the same pants I have always purchased, and this pair is seriously so thin they feel AND LOOK like tissue paper. Will no longer purchase clothing at JCP. After looking around the store, the clothing all looks cheap. The cardigans are so thin you can see through them. Very bummed

I went to buy new clothes at JC Penney and was terribly disappointed to find they no longer carry St. John's Bay. Looking in my closet, about 75% of the clothes are St. John's Bay. I always liked it because it was a better quality than most stores carry. The JCP line they are now providing is not up to standard. The colors are gaudy and the quality is sub-par. I am the kind of person that likes to spend a bit more money for better quality that will last.

The new line of men's Arizona jeans is HORRIBLE. Where are the standard original fil bleached stone wash jeans I have been able to buy for years. Even the men'z Izod fleece sweaters this year where HORRIBLE in the colors they had.
Penny's is going downhill fast ... the new CEO should be fired before he drives all previous customer from never coming back to Penny's. I hate going in the store now,and not coming out with anything.
I too, like a previous poster, used to spend $200 or more at Penny's every year end around Christmas, or the week after ..... this year I have NOT BOUGHT ONE THING AT PENNY'S. The selection are for "teeny-boppers" now.
Penny's deserves to go out of business if it keeps up this new direction by the new CEO.

I am, like almost everyone else on here, extremely disappointed in J.C. Penney. What happened to St. John's bay? And what did they do to Arizona jeans? I have buying them for years and now none of the styles fit right and they all look like they are made for junior high kids. And why does everything now look like it's supposed to be worn by a size 2 model to go out clubbing in? I know that the new CEO turned Apple around and did some work with Target. But J.C.P isn't a computer store and I don't ever buy clothes at Target (because everything looks like it's for a size 2 model). Running a month-long sale on only a few items is ridiculous. Because if what you need isn't on sale, you have to wait an entire month just to see if it might go on sale the next month!
I now find shopping at J.C.P to be exhausting. I can't find anything. And all the different color and lighting schemes that you walk through from "mini shop" to "mini shop" literally started one of my migraines. I used to love shopping at Penneys, it was such a calm, pleasant environment. Now I can't even go back without fear of setting off another headache.

Severely disappointed with the direction this and all their stores have gone. I may be the demographic they were trying to appeal to but they did a really poor job. I don't want to walk into JCP and feel like I'm walking into an Apple store. The selection is minimal and disappointing. At least before they had a really good mix of items that appealed to a wide variety of ages. I have tried several times over the past 8 months to stay behind the brand but all of my large retail department store purchases are made at Macy's. I make quite a number of purchases throughout the year but especially at Christmas, we are an above average income family and this year I spent a total of $20 and used a $10 coupon. So net, net I spent a total of $10 at JCP the whole holiday season where in past years I may have spent between $200-$300. They have obviously lost money on me and I cannot be the only one who feels this way based on the posts I see here.

I understand that JC Penney wants to court a younger clientele, but you are going about it the wrong way. You've lost customers like me (ageing, but with a six figure income) and are also disappointing the younger crowd. Was surprised recently to hear a young and extremely well dressed colleague tell me that she couldn't find anything at there anymore and she was initially excited about the American classics line you debuted a few years ago. I'll miss online/delivery convenience, big and tall sizes with great selection for big/tall husband and kids, SJB, reasonable linens/homegoods for home and second home,New Balance sneaks x 4 people ordered 3-4 times a year, chef knives, bras, pots and pans, that odd black slip or pair of snowpants, extra-long ties, basics galore. In short, selection you can count on, convenience, basic quality and good value. Too bad.

My family is not the "go to the mall every week" kind of shoppers. Instead, we shop for seasons and reasons- like "back to school", Christmas, summer, etc. As a result, when the kids (now young adults), and I went last weekend to prepare for an upcoming California trip, I was shocked. hadn't been to the store for months. I expected to spend the typical several hundred dollars ( which is what happens if you do not shop often!) and get them totally ready to travel, one stop; boom; done. The store was empty. Empty of merchandise, empty of shoppers, and empty of employees. The service desk was just gone, as were THREE of the original check out desks. We found little to buy, stood in a long line to pay, ended up with two bags ( not even $200), felt tired and disgusted, and went to Kohls. I won't go back. I don't have enough time to waste in life to repeat useless, failed experiences. I went home and told my oldest, wo always got his gym clothing there what we saw. I thought it was just OUR JCP, and that maybe it was going out of business. Imagine my surprise when I went online to look this up, and found not only this site, but also the "new marketing" and new CEO articles. What a shame. What a failure. Goddbye JC Penney. I enjoyed you for my 46 years of life, but it is time to break up.

I agree with all the posts. I have been a Penney shopper my whole life. I am very disappointed with the direction they have taken. All of the good quality staple brands are gone. I have decided that JCP now stands for junky crappy product. They definitely need to bring the old Penneys back. If the people in place now do not know how to do it how about bringing back all the people who knew how to run a profitable Penneys that were let go.

I don't know what JCPenneys you work at. Have you read the comments here? In the Penneys near my house SJB is non-existant and there are NO shoppers anymore. I walked around the entire 2nd floor and couldn't find an employee. I thought the store must be closed. Used to be my favorite store. Now I have probably been there 2 or 3 times this entire year and walked out without buying anything. No good deals there.

I, along with what seems to be the majority of posters, am extremely disappointed with the "new" JCPenney. In particular, I was not happy to hear that the St. John's Bay line has been discontinued. That was a line that I purchased for every member of my family. I have two family members who require tall sizes and can no longer find items for them that they would like. The store seems to be trying too hard to stock clothes that are too trendy and completely ignore customers who would like to be able to find good, basic, clothing that is made to last. Please at least consider offering SJB online.
12/21/2012 1:06:07 PM
Sadly disappointed in their new direction. Can't find anything anymore as they don't have anything anymore. Used to be my favorite store in men's wear-lots of selection. Today, I went there expecting to get my favorite jeans, Arizona, and they had virtually nothing. And what they had looked like they were trying to mock the teenagers styles. I'm not a teenager and I don't want pants that look like they're already worn out and dirty. Too bad, was a nice store, now it sucks hard and I won't coming back, there's simply no reason to. And what's with the stupid mannequins blocking the aisles? Guess it doesn't matter since there's now plenty of room to walk where merchandise used to be. Expect Penneys to go down in the next year. Not the recession's fault but an idiot CEO who has no idea how to run a business.

I have been a JCP shopper - in store and online, for over 20 years. I just went "shopping" to my local JCP store at the Queens Center mall and was I shocked. The holiday decorations were minimal. There was no one to greet you. The store directory stand was gone and they put 6 standing manequins down the center aisle. I love St Johns Bay tops and have several of them. They were nowhere to be found. I asked the one saleslady and she said that the JCP square logo that is on some of their clothes would replace the St Johns Bay line which has been discontinued. I looked at those clothes and they were very thin and not worth even attempting to buy them. I looked at their costume jewelry and there was hardly anything to choose from. I just went on the internet and found SJB clothes but all on clearance. This new CEO is either going to drag down the store or change it completely and loose all of us loyal JCP customers forever. I am really saddened by all of these changes.

I am also disappointed with JC Penney's this year. Is it me or has 1/2 the inventory disappeared or been discontinued? Plus their internet is bothering me as well. How many times do I have to click on an item to find it not in stock or in a size no one wears? I think I wasted a hour the other day trying to find last minute gifts and everything I clicked on should have been removed due to being out of stock.
Truly disheartening to see JC go the way of less merchandise and less inventory to increase profits for wall street. Oh well... I guess I'm gonna shop local more and more and keep the tax money and profits in my own community.

I am been purchasing St. John Bay cable knit sweaters for years. I am very upset that I was unable to purchase them this year. In addition, the store is carrying about a 1/4 of the purses and fashion jewelry.....not much to pick from. The last time I was in the store I felt like I was shopping a bargain warehouse.

The Henley shirts in so many nice colors and sizes are gone. Last Christmas I bought all the clothing for men from Penneys and this year couldn't find anything. The stores have been redesigned... Lots of open spaces and no merchandise worth buying. Very poor upper management decision . I can understand why the head guy left. Please bring back your trustworthy brands like St. John's Bay.

Jc Penny's is a store I have shopped for years- always good clothing for myself.

(Maybe St john's Bay Jeans are going out I don't know) I myself wear Arizona brand jeans relaxed fit, but now all Arizona is making in (style-color) are these jeans that look like they have been washed for 100 years and they are not my taste at all (very tacky)(not JCP fault but I am disappointed- guess i have to change and will but this makes a challenge for jeans anyways for my son- I have heard that jcp is not doing well- hate to hear it, but this is not helping in such as for my case to be able to continue JCP for at least clothing for my family

The only place I could find nice fitting clothes for me was JCP for years ! I bought the St. Jon's Bay corduroys for several years buying a few more each year . I also have a few pair of their jeans . I HATE the 'NEW" JCP. I will have stopped shopping there since they no longer carry the brands that fit me ! I am not in a junior so I don't want my pants 6 inches below my navel and I am not a granny so I don't want my pants to sit under my breast bone wither . The ST.johns brand sat AT my waist which is where it is ! To the person who said they were a bland brand and poor quality...I don;t know what you wear but I like them and they have lasted me years. I am heart broken that they are gone . Shame they can not leave things that are not broken but the hire some one new and he has to "fix" every thing. Can't wait until he is fired and we can see coupons AND the brands we loved and depended on again !!

I don't know what kind of font you use for us when we enter in the buttons. Why do you make it hard to read. I know, you don't want us to receive the discounts! And also, the buttons say they were already entered even when it's the first one you have of it. Too many doubles I suppose.

I have been a customer for years. I've bought your clothing for my family here. I'm still shopping but not as much. I miss the St. Johns Bay line!! Why would you discontinue it! Also, I have been doing the button thing to get sale prices, they work sometimes and sometimes not. What gives on this? I feel you need to put back the registers (it's hard to find one open now) and we do not need a coffee bar, child play area or yoga classes. We are looking for a place to find good clothes at a good price that are well made. This is for the average person not a person that shops only at Macys, there are alot of us out there. Do not forget about that. Also, coupons and sales are the thing to do.

I agree with all the hundreds of comments about JC Penney. Cannot find Cabin Creek jeans or Buxton brand wallets there anymore.
was in the store recently and hardly anybody there. Cannot find Cabin Creek jeans online either. What has happened to this once popular store?

VERY disappointed in the "new" JCP. Why would you discontinue products that were always good sellers? I bought tons of St.Johns Bay clothing thru the years. Cost was reasonable, fit was great..and they were easy care/wash and wear. If you were going to decrease inventory...the least you could do is keep the products that sell. Very sad. Looks like I'll be shopping elsewhere from now on. Surprised I didn't keep the "old" Penny's in business myself...I certainly spent enough time and money there. New management..needs to leave. Not too smart

You are killing JCP!!!! Mr. Penney owned the Noble Meat Market in Longmont, Co - my great grandfather worked for him. After a while he sold it and went a few doors down the street to start the "Golden Rule store" before he moved to WY. He would be appauled at the way your are running his store. You have succeeded to bringing a world known retail store to going to a 2nd class retail. I can do the same shopping at any second hand store.
You have gotten rid of brand names that only Penney's carries. I will not be back!

Forgot to add they no longer carry a.n.a and Worthington which were great for goint to work clothing. Looking at their website I feel like I'm in the salvation army store. Nothing matches, clothing I like all sold out but still on web..wish someone would buy them out and put back these brands.

I am with the thousands that loved st. Johns Bay clothing. especially love their corduroys (womens) and womens cable sweaters. I hate pennys now, cheap stuff. would rather pay a little more and get good quality. If pennys doesnt get it back some retailer should grab it.

As a tall gal, I regularly shopped the St.John's Bay line for all seasons for tops, sweaters, pants etc and was extremely disappointed to see the line eliminated. It had basics we all need, reasonable prices and good quality and I along with the others no longer shop JCP (have ordered nothing in a year)and have gone elsewhere due to poor management decisions. The catalogs (or flyers) sent in the mail are poorly laid out and a waste of paper, the lines they are carrying are trendy and not the basics and the NEW JCP stinks. I read constantly how their sales are dropping and it is decisions like this one that caused it.

I have been shopping at JCPenney's for many, many years but that is about to change. How COULD you remove St. John's Bay products. Is this a political move because the company is in Utah? Many of my friend, family and strangers are complaining and I told them to write to you. What next?? Are you going to remove all your top quality products? As far as I'm concerned until you bring St. John's Bay BACK to your store I am no longer shopping there. What a shock...no warning or survey or anything, just poof!! it's gone. People love your store and coming in for products by St. John's Bay have always enticed me to shop for other products as well.I'm not begging you, I am telling you fact...NO MORE JCPeney's shopping until you get that brand back, period, end of discussion. And what a shame that would be for both of us! Listen to your customers!!! And at this busiest of holidays at that, what a below-the-belt thing to do to your loyal customers! Signed: Ticked off and missing from JCPenney's!!

JCPenney made a huge mistake dropping the St John's Bay clothing line. I loved their men's black cotton crew socks but they are no longer in any store. JCP replaced them with GoldToe but I find them not to be as thick or as durable. Dropping their exclusive SJB signature line is like Kohl's dropping the Sonoma brand or Sears dropping Craftsman. You just don't do it. It is probably a death sentence for JCPenney and it is a just a matter of time before it folds. The idiot who approved that decision needs to be fired because our entire family doesn't shop their anymore. We hate their need ad circulars in the newspaper as well; a whole lot of nothing. What a marketing disaster that may make a good thesis report for a future marketing major.

I hadn't been to JC Penney in a while but stopped by today to pick up some St. John's Bay jeans and tops, I walked around the store several times. I could not find the St. John's Bay display anywhere. I asked a woman at the cash register (I bought a pair of much needed Dearfoam slippers): she told me St. John's Bay had been replaced with "JCP". I almost laughed in her face. The JCP stuff is horrible, comes in neon bright ugly colors. It is nothing like the St. John's Bay line at all. They couldn't be further apart. I was a faithful JC Penney customer for years because of the St. John's Bay line. I used to buy Okie Dokie for my daughter when she was younger but the older girls clothing at JC Penney now is horrible. I will no longer shop there. They have nothing I want. Really don't know where I am going to shop now. I really loved the SJB brand.

For two days in a row, after inputting codes from two buttons each day, there has been no reply from JCPenney on my gmail account. I have been playing the button contest for awhile and have never had a problem even though most are not winners. Anybody I can contact about this? If I try to input the numbers again, it says they have been used already.
