I hope JCP can turn the store around. This store has been a source of good-looking professional petite women's business wear at affordable prices. And somehow the name JCP seem like an American icon.

ALL companies price this way....and I mean ALL companies, especially retail companies!!!

This is NOTHING new, it has been going on for DECADES!!

THIS IS STANDARD BUSINESS PRACTICE!!!

It is especially true of "discount" retailers between November and the end of December.
Retailers like WalMart will hike up prices around August through November at least 50% or MORE......then around "Black Friday" they will "discount" items heavily, so you think you are getting a good deal, when in fact, you are paying FULL standard retail price!!

I have been in retail for many years, and this has been going on since retail business began.

THEY MARK IT UP, TO PUT IT ON SALE, AND STILL GET THE FULL RETAIL PRICE FOR IT!.

The ONLY TRUE discounts you get is from the clearance sections after a season is over with. Out of date or out of season items will be sold at a real discount, in order to get them out of stock and off the floor, so regular priced stock can be placed out on the floor.
