Question of the Week

What would your ideal JCPenny's look like?

As we all know, shopping mall icon JCPenny's is in the middle of a re-structuring and re-branding effort. So if you were the CEO of JCPenney's, what would be the future of your vision for the store? You've been given a blank slate. Now go cast the vision for the all-new JCP.

I just finished listening to the Relevant Podcast, and I believe I heard Cameron say that the Republicans might look to Ricky Rubio to be the 2016 nomination. I believe you would be referring to the Florida senator Marco Rubio, and not the Minnesota point guard Ricky. I don't believe that the republicans want to have a point guard running the offense that will spread the wealth around.

Since JCP stores have so much real estate inside malls, every store should allocate at least 1/10th of their space to either a petting zoo or exotic animal exhibit. Moms will have no problem dragging the kids along if they get to pet a llama and/or see a bear and a tiger.

Also, if the economy gets worse, they can save money by training monkeys to spray perfume samples on passersby.

This is funny that you are talking about the new JCP as I have worked there part time during all of this new change to become America's favorite store. I love the micro store concept, but honestly people love to see the sales. Personally I would love it if things are a final price, but much lower prices. That way you don't need a sale to tell you that you're getting a good deal - you just know you're getting a good deal. It would be fun to see them put up glass walls between each store to make it feel like you're in an actual mini store, but then again I'm sure people would be walking right into the glass walls, so that wouldn't work out too well.

L'idée est que vous regardez une seule main des heures et des minutes pas. Ceux-ci peuvent être sous la forme traditionnelle de 12 petit cadran de temps, ou dans ce cas, d'une ligne de 24 heures. Cela signifie que chaque jour une heure fait une rotation complète.
