Re: The new JCP commercial

I have noticed this already in JCP. I have a $17 credit there from a returned Christmas gift so I was browsing the other day. I would say the prices are pretty comparable to their usual sale prices. You know how everything is usually marked up like 40-50% on the MSRP, then EVERYTHING is on sale pretty much every week? Well now, the every day price is just the typical sale price.

I will be bummed if there are no more 10 off 25 coupons though. Love those!

Re: The new JCP commercial

I don't mind it, but I did scoot over to the fb page to find out what it was about and a lot of people were annoyed. I don't think jcp mind as it's obviously causing interest. Any publicity is good publicity and all that....

I know one comment was about two children with autism really not liking the commercial. However, I'd imagine there are a lot of commercials that bother many kids IMO. Not sure that's at the top of advertisers agenda when designing commercials........


Actually the ikea ad that goes......"START THE CAR".....lady yelling is kinda loud too, but cracks me up.

Re: The new JCP commercial

Oh, and I think kohls always mark their stuff way up too. I kinda wish they would get rid of the sales and just have a low price so if I hit the "nonsale" day, I can still get kids sweats for $7 instead of feeling bummed that I'm paying $14 when I know they will be on sale or just were on sale.

Re: The new JCP commercial

If the quality doesn't suffer 40%+ as well I'll be happy. I hate, hate, hate shopping sales and couponing. I'm just terrible at both, plus I like to buy things as needed, like I just found out I need to go to a dressy thing next Thurs and want a new dress- kind of last minute to plan around sales kwim.

Re: The new JCP commercial

I was in JCPenny's on Wednesday and saw some employees wheeling around big racks of pricing stickers. I wondered what it was about, but this explains it. They were pricing toddler girls leggings at $3, which made me sad because I had just paid $3.98 per pair at Walmart for 2 pairs a couple days before.

They are having a HUGE sale right now- pre new pricing? I got shoes 8.97 (reg. $45), a shirt $5, (reg $22) and a t-shirt type long jacket thing $8- (reg $36)... seemed like 1/2 the store was on sale.

Cheaper than Walmart? I may have to stop in JCP and see how things are after this is in effect!
Now, if Kohl's would do the same!

Re: The new JCP commercial

So do you guys think it will be online too????
I have a $50 off $50 that I have not used yet from the step 2 mess up that happened and I really need a new carseat for this new baby. I am hoping that online prices will drop too.

I was there today. A lot of the store was already blue tagged. Men's dress shirts $30, swim trunks. $25, women's short sleeve sweaters $30...not much of a change?

Re: The new JCP commercial

I worked for the pricing team changing the pricing. Honestly the prices didn't change much AT ALL from what the old "sales" were. Just now we won't be getting te 10/50 coupons. which totally stinks.

The online price at jcp.com are already updated as well.
