JCPenney History

JCPenney, also called JCP or Penneys, was founded by James Cash Penney in 1902 as the Golden Rule Store.  Penney bought out his 2 partners in 1907 and began calling the stores J.C. Penny in 1913.  There were 35 stores at this time.

By 1917, there were 175 stores in 22 states.  In 1924, the 500th store was opened.  The 1000th store opened in 1928.

By 1941, JCPenney was operating in all lower 48 states.  They were over 1600 stores.

In 1956, the chain began advertising nationwide in Life magazine.  In 1959, the JCPenney credit card was launched.

In 1963, the JCPenney catalog was launched.  The catalog portion of the business was not profitable until 1971.

In 1971, founder James Penney died.

In 1993, JCPenney became the largest catalog retailer in the US.  In 2011, they closed their catalog business.

Today, the company operates over 1100 department stores in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.  Most locations are in suburban shopping malls.

I bought 2 bathing suits on my husbands card today at Joplin’s JC Penneys. I was there from approximately 12:30 until 2:57 according to my receipt. While I was there the bathing suits I was trying on either had holes in the side seems or where the underwires are. I saw so many like this I almost didn’t buy a bathing suit at all. I better not have something go wrong with my suit early on or I’m coming in to complain in person. They were all womens midriff bathing suit tops for bigger busted women. This was really disgraceful. I didn’t even try to complain while I was there because there were a lot of people shopping. The womens bathing suit area was littered everywhere on the floor with bathing suits.

I called customer service yesterday re: 2016-1355-4022-140 placed 5-14-16. When I traced the tracking it said it was delivered 12/2014! So I called and inquired where my package was. Lady put me on hold, she didn’t realize I could still hear her but she told male supervisor she needed to contact ups and that I was tweaking!!!! She came back to tell me that ups had never received my order and looking at my order now 2 of my items were no longer in stock. Said she would have to credit my account and put the order through again. Anyways 23 min in total I was told only 1 of my 4 items were in stock. And it was buy one get one for a penny. So no penny one only full price for me. I told her to cancel the order please. I place an order of new work shirts only to discover I had been waiting for nothing. To top it all off I call to inquire and overhear Im tweaking. When in fact I had called Just to inquire. At no time had I acted out. Pretty disappointed customer here, all the way around.

The old JCPenney is back. Love the coupons, love the brands, love everything. Customer service at my location is outstanding. And I’ve never had a problem with online ordering. Thank you Pennies for the fun, trendy and affordable shopping experience you provide.

I bought one pair of Worthington pants in store, then ordered five more online on February 21, 2016. They are for work and get washed regularly. They have shrunk up! They are too short to wear in public now. They are the Worthington slim fit 816-3017 0109. What do I do now?

I go to JC Penney quite often and there is associate at the JC Penney on Del Prado, Cape Coral, FL
name Victor he never ask me for my phone number for my rewards I say would you like to have my phone number to put in for rewards. He don’t ever ask if I have rewards I even noticed that while I am waiting in line he never ask any other customers that is not good they are missing out on getting there points for their next reward. He is not friendly at all either I tell him thank you have a nice day he does not respond back by saying thank you for shopping with us or have a good day. I do not ever want him to wait on me again he not friendly and does not ask me for phone number for rewards. I am glad that I remember to mention it to him so I can get my rewards


Nancy May 22, 2016 at 4:54 pm

That is because employees are told by the higher-ups not to mention rewards. They do not want you to use them. Nice, huh?


Quankeshia April 30, 2016 at 5:45 pm

I ordered a bra online on April 15th still no bra on April 29th the day of my daughters prom. The sales reps would keep me on hold for 20 min or so pretending to take care of the problem buy it was all a lie. I called all week and they claimed to ship out a bra express mail still no bra. They ruined one of the most important days of my daughters life and I will make sure that everyone is aware of their unprofessional attitudes and rude customer service


Melaniebriggs May 7, 2016 at 10:34 pm

Really it’s a bra? And it’s a prom. If you called all week common sense would have told you to go some where else?


Mrs Kile April 29, 2016 at 12:53 pm

Very displeased with JCPenneys! Purchased a online order was told it would be delivered UPS, so I gave my physical address … Only to find out it was send usps, so guess what it was returned as undeliverable, called JCPenneys and because I used a JCPenneys gift card they will not refund my money to a JCPenneys gift card or send me a check. They pretty much stole my money and won’t resend or re-order the original order. Very unhappy and will never shop JCPenneys again. Talked to 6 customers service agents , all rude and all unhelpful. Before this I liked JCPenneys but now if this how your treated I’ll never go back!


Taryn May 20, 2016 at 2:19 pm

I am going through that with an order I made…I found a better deal and they refuse to cancel the order.


Todd April 28, 2016 at 9:10 pm

I will never shop Jc Penny again. They totally messed up my on line order for my wife’s birthday present. Maybe you’ve fixed your storefront, but your online ordering is the worst. You don’t deserve to stay open any longer! Happy bankruptcy!!!


ina holiday April 28, 2016 at 11:35 am

I never shopped @ JCP until my realtor told me to go there for bed/bath items 12 years ago- I found beautiful bed sets with matching curtains garbage pails, even wallpaper molding, cups etc Some even had matching Shower curtains bath accessories etc-for in bedroom bathe!! I then shopped at JCP regularly for about 5 years until all that stopped..:( Please bring that back- x

I bought a pair of St John Bay sandels in the hattiesburg ms store on March 25, 2016. They were on sale for 29.99. I thought I was getting a good deal but to my surprise one of them broke after only two weeks.i would have taken them back but I didn’t have receipt or the box the came in. Will not be shopping in the store again.


Saudia Armwood April 25, 2016 at 8:35 pm

I purchased a recliner on March 9th after three weeks without any updates I reached out to the customer service department they were unable to locate any tracking info and politely asked me to be patient after another week passed I decided to ask for a full refund which was processed on April 2nd too date I have not received my full refund and after several calls many excuses and no resolution I was rudely told by a furniture supervisor to take up my concerns with PayPal there was nothing they could do this has been the worst customer service experience I have ever had in retail so I will never patronize their business again just needed to vent I don’t expect anyone to care

This email is to complain about the Women’s dept at the Cottonwood Mall, Albuquerque, NM. I realy shop at the mall and upon entering the store, I immediately noticed that the women’s dept had been moved to the other side of the store.
I was looking forward to a nice shopping experience but what I found were racks of winter markdowns, piles of clothing on the tables, and nothing carefully organized as compared to where it was before. I also noticed that the dept selections has, yet again, decreased in size.
I prefer to shop for the Alfred Dunner brand in plus size clothing and there was only (1) rack. One four corner rack! Thinking the store had just moved the whole department and had yet to organize it, I was told it had been moved over 5 months ago. Standing in the asile, I looked over at the Misses dept and it was beautifully organized, the way it should be, which incourages shopping. You have a wonderful selection of Alfred Dunner online, but I like to try on clothing before I buy. So, needless to say, I will not be back. JCPenny seems to think that plus size women do not need a large department anymore.


T. Barnhart April 24, 2016 at 8:49 am

I usually enjoy shopping at the Erie location. However this past Friday night at the women’s counter was a different experience. Two young girls were working, but they were more interested in socializing with one another. We had to interrupt their chatter while ringing up our purchases to ask a question, they couldn’t work the register correctly, or apply a coupon. Two other customers in line with me made similar comments. One of them then stopped in the middle of my transaction to pull her hair up, apply lip.gloss, and check her phone.


Siobhan Garrett April 19, 2016 at 4:26 pm

wanted to make you aware of a situation that occurred at one of your Jcpenny Stores at 5050 E Ray Road in AZ on April 4, 2016 at 12:30PM. I walked into Jcpenny to return a pair of pants and once I completed my transaction I walked over to look at some other pants and decided to try them on. I went into the fitting room and the pants were too big so I went to get a smaller pair. When returning to the fitting room I noticed a lady was staring at me which I did not pay much attention to at the time. I entered into the fitting room tried the other pair of pants on, placed the pants that were too big on the return cart in the fitting room and proceeded to the cash register to make my purchase. Which your store cameras would show you. When walking towards my car a man aprochched me and stated come with me or you will be placed in handcuffs. He scared me because he was very close to my face and made me think he was trying to take my purse and then he showed me his badge. I asked what is this about, he said again, come with me or I will place you in handcuffs. At this time I’m very emotional, crying, embarrassed, scared and highly offended because I knew I didnt do anything wrong and was not being told what the issue was. So of course this is now really scaring me even more, because I still have no idea what’s going on. I go with him and the same woman that I noticed staring at me earlier on in the fitting room, into a back room. I then began to remember this same lady was not there when I left the fitting room. The man and woman then rudely went in on me accussing me of taking a pair pants. I said pull the video tape because I did not take anything. They kept saying they saw me take the pants and at this point I am calling my husband and sister so they could hear the conversation of these rude accusations. Then the lady said show me your purse which of course I did and she did not find anything. I’m still crying, embarrassed and frustrated again asking that they please pull the video tape so they could clearly see I did not take anything. They both continued to be very rude and accussing me of something that they still would not show me proof of me doing. NEVER once was I asked to show them my receipt or ask my side of the story. Because the woman who THOUGHT she saw this act, would have had to see there was a pair of pants sitting on that cart in the fitting rooms, WHERE I PLACED THE PAIR I COULDNT FIT. Finally the manger of the store comes and says you can leave. No, explanation of why, just that I can leave. I said now why if I am being accused of this horrible thing would you just let me go? I again asked to see the video tape showing me doing this. He said I can’t discuss it but you can go and I told him I want to wait for my husband, he then told me you can’t stay here, you will have to wait outside.
My husband had finally arrived and so we went back into the store to speak with the manger and security. They proceeded to apologize (because they had apparently seen the video by now AFTER HOW I WAS REPRIMANDED) and were actually surprised how everything had happened and said it will be taken care of. Apparently the person who viewed the video stated he is new and unaware of the situation. The manager then gives me a number for a Karen the district manager. I Also, spoke to Monica Sorenson which is the district manger and was told they will have all the names of everyone involved. Also, I reached out to corporate which advised me someone would call me, which NEVER happened. Monica Sorenson stated they would give me apology letter and 100.00 gift card. Which is not enough being humiliated, fasley accused , embarrassed and now nervous about going into stores because of being afraid I will be falsely accused. I reached out to a lawyer because of this and was told listed below are the things they did not follow in your store:
Never asked for my receipt
Never asked what happened
Never showed me the video tape
Not in the fitting room when I came out
Never saw me purchase the merchandise or return the pants in fitting room
If they would have followed these steps I would not have been detained at all. And would not be having this conversation

My experience has been a very positive one when visiting JC Penny in St. Louis at Hampton Village Shopping Center. I live in the city and happy they have not moved to the county. Today I was waited by Kyle who I am writing about. He was so helpful, quick, knowledgeable and able to deal with multiple customers needs quickly and efficiently, he went above and beyond what is expected and did it quickly and friendly. He was the best. No I am not a relative but he stood out. I wanted to say to him if he was in school to keep going as he will go far. However, he may have been on Penny’s Management tract?? so I didn’t. Better not let him go as he was the example of a perfect employee for this job. Plea recognize him for his excellent performance on Sunday 17 April 2016 around 3:50pm


Letetia April 17, 2016 at 7:48 pm

Please permit me to detail a matter that JCPenney fail to show good faith and have cause me both emotional and financial stress. On November 27, 2015 I placed an order for a dining room set. The total cost of the item was $1186.00.

Problems with shipment

Around the fifteenth of December I was contacted by The MXD group stating the table arrived damaged, and they were returning it to JCPenney, and as soon as the replacement arrives they will be contacting me to confirm a new delivery date. I was contacted around the 21st and the item arrived in the Virgin Islands December 30th, however all I received was a table. I immediately contacted JCPenney Furniture, and was told every week for two months that the chairs will be delivered, this did not occur. I spoked to several individuals in corporate furniture who assured me each week the same thing. In an effort to pacify me on two separate occasion I received a credit of $125.00 waving the shipping fees.

Corporate Customer Relations January- March

After two months of no help and no indication of how and when I would receive the chairs I researched and found a number for your corporate office. At that office I spoke to several person until I spoke with an employee name Connie, who was the only person who tried and showed an interest in my case. The first attempt she made was to secure the chair from another store, this eventually did not happen for reasons unknown to me. As a result of JCPenney’s inability to fulfill the order I was offered two options either a refund or select another set of chairs, and the matter will now be handled by Furniture Escalation Department and the person of contact was Tasha.

Furniture Escalation Department

My first conversation with Tasha was very distasteful in that she thought I wanted unwarranted compensation and based on what she read I had already received my order as well two credits and she did not see the need for my call. That call was terminated and in tears I reached back out to Connie who then called her and explained the situation. Tasha called back apologized and attempted to assist me in selecting a set of chairs. The pair of chairs she selected according to her was comparable to the ones I ordered (web ID: 7965971). She was unapologetic and treated me as if I was trying to obtain to select chairs above the valve of the ones I ordered. After several heated and unpleasant discussion I finally settled on a set of chairs. I indicated to Tasha that due to the negligence of JCPenney and its poor customer service I would be stuck with chairs that do not fully match the color texture of my table, but I am prepared to overlook this due to my need and desperation after waiting for so long. Tasha made it a point of fact that I received chairs that cost much more than the ones I ordered, but failed to take into consideration the undue stress I incurred. Her attitude and mannerism in dealing with the matter was unprofessional and lacked customer friendliness. Other than stating, “sorry” her lack of compassion demonstrated she cared less about how a customer felt and experience in the process of conducting business.

My last and final request for Tasha was can JCPenney furnish me with a letter stating that these chairs are part of the unfulfilled order so that United States Customs in St. Thomas, United states Virgin Islands would not charge me additional import fees. She indicated that she cannot and refused to direct anyone to do so. I received the chairs April 11, and tried to explain to Customs but without the document I was charged $204.00.

On April 17, 2016 I called back and had a discussion with her and after perhaps for the first time listening to my concern told me that she could have directed someone to write that letter but it too late and there is nothing she could do about it now and as far is she is concerned I was overly compensated by the chairs I received and that is it. I further indicated that I am going public with the treatment I received from JCPenney and she can help to avert it by first recognizing that they erred and compensate me for that additional $204.00 I spent. The hostility in her conversation led me to request the name and address of her supervisor, she indicated there is no one above her, I then asked, “can I have the contact information for the CEO or the management personnel above you” she refused and hung up.

Mr. CEO, I paid my bill every month even when I did not have the merchandise. I was antagonized beyond measure. Without the help of Connie, I would not have received the chairs. I am prepared to make this matter public, but would avert should in your capacity you recognized the error of your personnel and credit my account for the $204.00 I spent unnecessarily had someone simply documented that the chairs were part of an unfulfilled order. It is the least that JCPenney can do.

Please find enclosed the receipts in question
I await your timely response.


Raul Pedraza April 12, 2016 at 12:20 am

Hello, let me start off by saying that I really enjoy shopping at JCPenney they usually have great prices and decent customer service. But this time around that was sadly not the case. I am currently in the army and based out of FT. Hood Texas. I decided to meet my groomsmen half way in Arlington Texas were we would be looking for suits for my wedding that is being held in May. We found nice quality suits at JCPenney and decided to buy them. They did not have all the sizes we needed so we ordered them through the store. The cash attendant told us it would be faster to order them into the store rather then order them to my home. So we decided to do so. I was told they would come in between 5-7 business days. So I decided I would make another trip down the next weekend to pick up the suits and get all my guys together to get them altered. The following week i arrived and was told the suits had not came in yet and would be in the following Monday. I was pretty upset but decided to swallow it and the following week. So I did so again the following week and still nothing. I asked them to call the 18003221189 number to find out more about my suits they did so and insured me they would be in the following week. After wasting two weekends coming down i called the before the following friday. I was then told my suits had been there at the Arlington JCPenney for two weeks now and will be about ready to be returned. More heated than ever i called the store to find out what the problem was. I was told that they did not have one full set that they were missing a vest so it did not show up as delievered…. Then come to find out they no longer had the size i ordered for the vest. So i would have to order a size up and pay more money out of my pocket to get it altered. Which is not cheap. The end result was they would ship them to my house an they would hopefully come in by the end of the week i have still yet to receive my suits. God willing they come in by the end of this week or i will be requesting my full refund and will most likely never be shopping here again. I was told i would compensated a huge 10 dollars for the vest…


Hannah April 7, 2016 at 5:23 pm

My boyfriend, brother, and I recently went to the JCPenney’s at Kentucky Oaks Mall. My boyfriend found a pair of pants that he wanted to try on. We go to the nearest fitting room and my brother and I wait outside while he tries them on. When we walk out, we are ‘greeted’ to an employee yelling at us about how that fitting room was girls only. However there was no sign outside or inside telling us that these fitting rooms weren’t for boys and girls. She was very rude and her remarks very uncalled for, if she had come to us politely and told us, we would have went to a different fitting room. I don’t appreciate the way I was ignored when I tried to apologize or the way that this woman talked to my boyfriend and brother. I will take my business elsewhere.


Candace J. Gibson April 2, 2016 at 12:21 pm

JC Pennies SUCKS as far as customer service! They care nothing about their customers. No wander they are clsoing their stores…because they done give a damn about helping their customers with any kind of issues!!! All I heard was “UNFORTUNATELY”. And how can a payment jump from $25.00 to $98.00 in a month????????? REALLY?????? They don’t even consider that I have made double payments and have never been late with a payment…and am a disabled senior to help me in any way with the interest charge!!!! All their people can barely speak English as well….don’t know what the hell they are trying to tell me…except “UNFORTUNATELY”…….”UNFORTUNATELY”……”UNFORTUNATELY”. I have cut my card up and will no longer support JC Pennys by being a customer of theirs…there are too many other places to shop!!!!


Deborah Floyd March 31, 2016 at 10:54 am

I will never order online at JC Penny again. Did so for the first time on 3/25/16..ordered 2 pairs of shoes and 2 packages of socks for my grandson to be sent to his address out of state. Paid for 3 day delivery. Never received confirmation or any email. The socks arrived, wrong size. The shoes were not delivered. I don’t know if they will be since I never received a tracking number. I became concerned yesterday, that’s when I saw all the complaints on the Consumer Affairs. Never again. I told my son to send the socks back, along with the shoes if they ever get there. I will be checking my credit card bill and there had better not be a battle.


Jim Crawford April 7, 2016 at 11:16 am

Mr. Cooke,

I have a question for you. Why would any smart marketing company develop
a newspaper insert for JCPenney with 14 black faces in it and 8 white/spanish
faces? Blacks account for 13.2 percent of the population and you show 64 percent
blacks in your insert. That is what you did today, 4/7/2016 in the Florence, AL paper.

I do not know where you learned your marketing but something is wrong here.
You either are targeting the black population or you are some dumb-a** marketer
that does not know any better. Just think about how many readers will stop or
have stopped going into JCPenney stores. I know several. JCPenney will continue to
fail, just watch.

Tyson April 15, 2016 at 8:50 pm

I am beginning to wonder the same thing. Today, I went to a JcPenney in Conway Arkansas and was treated like dirt by an African American cashier. She mumbled something about white people to her fellow colleague as I turned to leave. I did nothing to deserve disrespect and am disgusted at the racist employee that was representing JcPenney in a bad way. I will just shop somewhere else from now on. Corporate was notified about this incident, and I hope something is done about it.


Cj May 6, 2016 at 1:44 pm

And the beat goes on. I went in for a schedule hair appointment in Lawrenceville, NJ and the salon was 80% color and 20% non-color. The stylist was a person of color who showed up 20 minutes late and was upset that I was upset that she was late. Her manager, Aneesha Nichols, another person of color came over to find out what was wrong and I explained the situation stating I did not have time to talk to her I just wanted my haircut. She dismissed me with ” you know what, we will not be servicing you today”. Then she called security to walk me out of the store! Hey JCPenney – who is paying for my time off and my humiliation by an ignorant employee? Wake up before your customers do, like me, and they stop shopping in your stores. Instead of a diverse workforce try to represent the community and be inclusive of all. Make sure your employees respect your customers regardless of the color of their skin.


John May 7, 2016 at 11:17 am

Dear Sir Jim Crawford,

Your comment has some racism in it and your mind is very narrow.
It looks like you have nothing to do in your life. The world is trying to move forward and people like you are holding it back. Find a hobby!!!
It is so sad to think that people like you exist and we have a lot of them.

Stephen Newnam March 28, 2016 at 5:19 pm

After trying for some time to open an account on line yesterday with no success, I went to the JCP credit card site, but was not able to log on. I had about $90 worth of clothes in my basket. The site just kept running me in circles. I have used this site to pay my wife’s credit card bill in the past!? I finally gave up and called the listed contact number. The woman I spoke to started instructing me on how to log on. When I told her what was happening, she asked me what browser I was using. I said I had a Mac and was using safari. She told me that was the problem and I had to us some other browser!!?? Guess we are the only JCP customers with a Mac! No wonder they are going out of business! I am no longer a JCP customer.


N taylor March 27, 2016 at 6:13 pm

I tried to resolve an issue online for JCP but ran out of space in the comment section so I called C/S Rep in the US who barely spoke English; as I asked for the address and phone number for the Corporate Office she became very argumentative as she informed me that I had to speak with her and that there is no number or address for the Corp. Office. I asked for her supervisor and she wanted to know why I could not just speak to the instead. I again asked for her supervisor and she again asked what for. I told her I had a complaint about her and she proceeded in asking me what was I going to say to her supervisor and I asked again for her to connect me to her superior and all of a sudden I am now on hold pushing 20 minutes…..


Sylvia March 26, 2016 at 10:53 am

Why are the models in JCP’s advertisements now mostly black or African American? Does JCP want people of other races and ethnicities to shop at JCP?


jessica March 25, 2016 at 6:59 pm

I had the worse experience at the north east mall location. Store appearance and selection is great,but please hire some respectful employee’s. I was there on March 22 in late afternoon. The cashier was rude and that really is an understatment. You could tell 100% she did not want to be there and did not care. I was purchasing some beautiful dresses and the employee handled them so roughly. Also, at checkout we had a problem that is too long to even write it all. I did not get her name but she was very young, short, african american,and looked like she was knocked up. Her co-worker wasn’t much better. That is a nice area and looks like it has a lot of store volume. I hope to see more pleasant employee’s in the future. Ive never experience such treatment at macys or belk. Get it together management!


jessica March 25, 2016 at 7:01 pm

I hope they pull the tape of this visit. I will have her associate number to provide to corporate if they care enough to address my compliant.


Kelly March 25, 2016 at 10:39 am

Your store at Spotsylvania towne center is the worst for customer service. I visited your store yesterday with my mom. The mall opened at 10:00, At 10:03 we had walked in (Doors obviously unlocked). We walked towards the front of the store where I saw there were associates having a team meeting. We didn’t want to walk through, and the doors to enter the mall were still down. We were approached by this lady who…the nicest way I could put it, walked at us similar to how you’d walk towards someone you were about to have a nasty confrontation with. She asked us abruptly, “Are you customers or what???” My reply… errr…. customers? (What the hell else would I be). She said, “How did you get in here, you’re not supposed to be in here, who let you in??” My mom told her we came in through the doors over there, what time do you open. She said 10 ( with some serious attitude). I looked at my phone…not watch, but phone and it said 10:03. She said umm…it is 10:03. She said no, its not, we are closed and you are not supposed to be here. You need to stay right here and DONT move. I had to have some serious restraint on this lady. I have NEVER been treated like a piece of crap annoyance in all of my life. Who the hell do your associates think that they are that they can talk to ANYONE like Patty did in Spotsylvania towne center??
I went to the cashiers desk where there were 2 ladies there. I asked if one of them was a manager, they said no, but is everything ok? We said no its not, we just got chewed out by some lady. They said oh….short haired lady? They new EXACTLY who I was talking about, so this obviously isnt the first time Patty came to work and decided to demonstrate her….customer service. They called for a manager…… she finally came.
This is the 2nd part of my problem. The manager came, I explained what happened. Her reply was, Oh I am sorry you’re having such a bad experience, you see, we normally don’t open the doors until after we are done with our meeting. I’m not really sure why this is any of my business, Your meeting should be done PRIOR to opening time….but I don’t manage your facility so whatever.
I told her, Look, I am a manager, and I would be utterly embarrassed if one of my employees treated customers like that. In truth, I would not have employees like that and I don’t. I told her that I felt that as a manager, she needed to know how her employee acted. But she seemed to want to have an excuse for Patty.
There is no excuse for that behavior. Patty sucks and the manager shouldn’t make excuses for piss poor behavior.
As we were leaving the store after shopping in the mall, The manager said to us “Whoa whoa whoa, ladies, I don’t see a JC pennys bag. (She was joking with us, trying to make light) but really???? I am fortunate enough to make a very good living and I will not put a single cent into your business with employees like Patty.

I have been a JCP credit card holder for over 25 years. I have been a loyal and true customer and have purchased many items from you. I pay my balance off every month, last month I was ONE DAY late on my payment due to being out of town. I received a $35 late fee for one day – no grace period of even 24 hours. I find this absolutely ridiculous and in poor customer service. After so many years of loyal patronage you would think I would be treated with a little more respect. I am concerning discontinuing my account and will start shopping your competitors. I must say I am extremely disappointed.

We ordered a couch and love seat online, before we got them my wife changed her mind, I called to cancel the order to be told it had already been shipped to the local delivery in Oregon and that I had to be called by them to set up delivery first and at that time advise the delivery co. I am refusing the shipment and that the FULL refund would be given once they get the items back, about 2 weeks went by, kept getting automated messages on my voice mail that we would be contacted for delivery within 5 day, 2 more weeks went by and no calls, I call customer service again, the 2nd rep said she saw my 1st call noted and to hold while she contacted the shipper, she came back and told me the 1st rep must of sent something to them as they told her they already knew we were canceling and are in process and returning them back to the manufacturer, again a few weeks goes by, I call again, now my 3rd call, He st tells me he sees the 1st call noted but not the 2nd one grrrrrrrrrrr ! He calls shipping comes back and says they are on their way to our Portland Warehouse and you will get credited once they receive them probably 2-3 days, that has now passed, yesterday I get a bill from JC-Penny billing me for both pieces, I was livid ! This morning I get an automated call to set up my delivery appointment, WTF ? So, I hit the button to schedule and I guy answered with no personality whatsoever, I let loose on him about whats been going on, no apology or assistance offered, he simply said you will not be contacted again regarding this and hung up, so, I obtained the Corporate number on line and was transferred to customer relations and received voice mail to leave my info and they will call back, somehow I doubt it, I as with many others will NEVER buy ANYTHING from them again, on line or in store and will be having my credit card with them canceled, So, as of yet nothing accomplished , will update my complaint if anything changes

Purchase their (SUPPOSED) top end Sterns and Foster Bed set and within a few months it began sinking in the middle, and I am not some large overweight person. The store personnel were fine about the matter and willing to help. Sealy, whom makes the Sterns and Foster bed, replied to my complaint and just passed the buck (can) down the road and did not want to deal with it. The wife put pillows in the middle of the bed to keep her from rolling downhill towards me during the night, and eventually gave up sleeping on it for days – hoping the bed springs would rise again.

I contacted the customer service dept per JC Penny’s staff about my problem…. after chasing J.C. Penny’s customer service I finally got an appointment for a furniture person to come out and examine my mattress set. The Furniture Rep immediately looked at my Mattress and even saw visually how it was sinking in the middle. He took measurements, took photos, and did his normal work…. he told me it was defective and it reflected in his report to J.C. Penny Customer Service. I also took pics of my mattress which looks brand new.

After his report was submitted, J.C. did not respond. 2-1/2 weeks went by and I called the Rep and they confirmed the report was e-mailed to them and had copies of the sent mail (not being returned as undeliverable)….

J.C. Penny’s Customer service dept denied they ever got anything per Mr. Timothy DESPITE E-MAIL GOING THROUGH. Mr. Timothy was a very nice person on the phone and was willing to submit an e-mail to Ms. Margret (in the same office as him), however the Supervisor (Ms. Margret Bathke) was another subject. They were suppose to call me back in 1 hour, but that never happened.

The local rep submitted the report 2 times to JC and to its supervisor, a Ms. Margret Bathke at their customer center in Milwaukee, Wis. I was offered an exchange, upgrade, or refund. It was made clear to them from the beginning I wanted a full refund for the defective bed set.

Ms. Bathke on the phone was evasive on my direct questions, did not answer my questions, was “smirking (laughing) about the matter, and really did not care. This was one big joke to her and I was just another customer complaining.

Ms. Bathke told me someone would be scheduled to pick up the mattress, but would NOT give me a refund check until after the mattress was picked up and “return” to the warehouse in Southern Calif which could take days to weeks to ship.

Basically between the bed set being picked up and shipped I was looking at another week or 2 without any bed and this was not acceptable to the wife or myself. I paid cash for this bed set and wanted an immediate refund check. I asked them to FedEx the refund check overnight and they refused. I have a FedEx account and could have even paid for the return funds…. just to get them back, and not have it lost in the mail.

Overall, J.C. Penny’s is pathetic and their furniture is sub-standard. With the lack of care by Mr. Margret Bathke and her “smirking” on the phone…. it shows how un-professional they are. A further study about this mattress; I found thousands of complaints. Research revealed that Sealy (Sterns and Foster) is discounting this product line in lieu of a newer mattress in April 2016 due to the poor quality workmanship from Richmond, CA.

After our experience with JC Penny on this matter, the wife and I chose (NOT) to purchase another bed set from your company, and buy elsewhere. The lies by the staff in customer service, or the lack of attention, non communication (no return phone call), and also NO e-mail to me as Ms. Margret said she would send to me, the on-going delays in my refund….. I will never come back to your company.

It appears to me that JCPenny’s has a lot of internal issues and will most likely never get resolved in the future.


Kathy Mayhood February 29, 2016 at 1:47 pm

You had a great sale on Sunday….the penny sale, but when I went in the store I couldn’t believe the mess the store was in. Let me first start by saying it was the Stoneridge Mall Store in Pleasanton, Ca. Things were thrown all over…clothes tossed in boxes, and clothes all over the floor. I was so disgusted I put the things I found back and left the store. There is no reason for such a mess in store. Even sale days it shouldn’t look that bad. If you have to hire one person just for floor clean-up. I am a charge card holder and have been shopping at JCP for over 40 years, but I will not be back until I know your store has been cleaned up.


Liz February 29, 2016 at 8:10 am

I was very disappointed when I went to JcPenney on 2/27. I’ve recently lost weight and went to purchase new clothes. My first stop was intimate apparel to purchase underwear. Since I’ve lost weight and dont know my size I went to the fitting room to try a few pair on. The lady working gave me a dirty look and in a nasty tone said : “we don’t let people try those on.” I’ve worked for JcPenney in the past and our store let customers try underwear on. Macy’s, Victoria’s Secret, and Kohl’s also allow underwear to be tried on. I was so turned off byher attitude I put my items down and walked out without making a purchase. I then went to Kohl’s and spent over $300.
If JcPenney does not allow customers to try certain items on – fine. But your employee could’ve been a little less rude when she informed me. She simply could’ve smiled and said “I’m sorry… JcPenney doesn’t allow customers to try underwear on” and helped me find my size. A little politeness goes a long way.


Lexi Chrisler February 20, 2016 at 7:44 pm

When I visited your store to get some shoes, I was very displeased on the checkout guys service he took the shoes and literally RIPPED the tag of of them. And ripped of the sticker that was on the bottom. Which caused some sticker to stay on them. Plus, since he RIPPED the tag off, some threads are now hanging off. I love JCpenney’s but I was VERY displeased with the amount of respect he had for the shoes I BOUGHT. And it doesn’t matter if they costed $10. I still bought them and he does not have the right to do that


Brenda Sullivan February 19, 2016 at 11:02 am

I want JC Penny to know that you lost 5 shoppers with one return. I returned dishes that were a christmas present and followed your guide lines of being within the 90 days time frame. I did not have the receipt they were in the unopened boxes with the sticker that showed the date they were purchased. I asked for a gift card because i did need dishes just ones that were not so heavy. What I received was a slip of paper that stated “all future returns and exchanges for the next 180 days would be denied due to my returning items” I asked the sales lady why and she said because I returned so many things. I never returned anything NOT one time before this. I contacted TRE a third party agency who told me it was JC Penney policy so being as I knew I did not return anything else I thought maybe someone got my information and was using it. I filled out the form to get a copy of all of my returns. I received the paper and it showed 1 yes 1 Return to JC Penney and it was the dishes! How dare you insult customer like that! I have never been so insulted in my life, my entire family has since cut up all credit cards to JC Penny and will shop at Kohls from this day forward. Who ever thought that this was a good idea to insult customer should be fired, there is no excuse for this.


Nancy March 25, 2016 at 12:15 pm

I to know how livid you are because of this action. I too try to reset turn something the other day and I received a paper from the TRC or whatever it is. They said I was in the one percentile of all of their customers and my refund activities MIMICKED A shoplifter or A return abuser!
I was never so mad in my life I am not accustomed to, nor will I ever be accustomed to, being said that I MIMICKED A shoplifter. And the kicker was, the item I was trying to return was damaged, I stone was missing. As of now I have not contacted JCPenney headquarters I know better until I have calm down. I have a notion to tell them that THEY can pay off my credit card since I don’t need a credit card because I “SHOPLIFT” everything.
And while I’m on the subject of JCP, have you noticed a quality or should I say lack of quality? I told the girls that are local store they better start looking for another job because their quality is something now that you would order from China. I’m sorry China, your quality is better than JCP’s


Hilda February 12, 2016 at 11:38 am

I am 100% disappointed in JCPenney’s hair salon. I have a wonderful stylist in Overland Park Kansas, but I am going to have to give her up. The reason is because you charge too much for your hair services. I am a senior citizen, & I cannot afford $120 or more for my hair services. I am appalled that you do not have a decent senior citizen discount let alone any discount at all for people who are older than 65. I have never walked into a hair salon and walked out with a bill like I walked out with this week. Then I had to add a tip onto the bill. I do not know where JCPenney gets off charging what top name salons charge their customer. I understand that I had a quote senior quote silent. But come on, JCPenney’s? I won’t go back. I may never find another stylist like the one I had but I won’t go back and pay that kind of money to a JCPenney hair stylist. I grew up during the time when JCPenney’s was like Kmart. Have not gotten over that feeling. But now the Kmart of the JCPenney’s stores is charging what a top-notch salon would charge. I went to Penneys, because I thought I would be able to get my hair done for a little less than a top-notch salon. And boy was I wrong. When I go into the salon I am normally the only person they’re getting any kind of service. Do you think you might be able to figure out why? Maybe someday I’ll find my hairstylist at another salon. And then I will go to her again but I’m not going to JCPenney’s and paying well over $120 to have my hair done.


Shanti February 15, 2016 at 9:05 am

I agree! They keep raising their prices! I’m have a weekly visit with them and while I am not a Sr. It is still very expensive. They just went up 3.00 in Corpus Christi, Tx this is the 2nd increase a short time!. I paid 40.00 for a shampoo flat iron used to be 37.00. Plus I gave a 7.00 tip. If Cut and color it is 80.00 10.00 Tip not included! So I am spending well over 200.00 monthly! I can’t afford that anymore! P.S I am a nurse and still think this is too expensive!!


Cheap February 24, 2016 at 7:58 am

What did the $120 hair service include? Unfortunately JCP Salon has been sterotyped as a Discount Hair Salon!! I know for “Fact” that the Hair Stylist hired are not below Average, however, JCP can not keep Excellent Stylist because of their “Unfair” wages!! It’s more than a trickle down from the Corporate Office , Higher Cost towards the Customer’s, Low Wages for the Employee. Soooo, Where do you Think all the “Money’s” going?? Shame on You “Corporate” Hording all the Money, Enjoying you’re Beautiful Homes and “Lifestyle!”


P.A February 24, 2016 at 9:45 am

Same thing happened to me and I paid $150 for a hairstyle that was not completed as well as being insulted ended up with the flu from wet hair and the manager of the salon that was rude and disconcerning


carolyn coffey February 11, 2016 at 4:59 pm

I am very upset with JC Penny at this moment and wish to voice my complaint
s. Let me begin by saying I have purchased from your company for many many
years. However I am just not so sure about future purchases due to the way
I have been treated

I purchased 3 appliances last Christmas as gifts. When I did there was a $1
0.00 rebate on each one. I received it on three $10.00 cards, for a total o
f $30.00. I went this week to the Penny’s in my home town Boone NC I was t
old there is no money on the cards by the cashier. The cashier called over
her manager who began calling the card center. I ended up being there for 4
5 mins. which is ridiculous and I got no answers. I paid for my purchases w
hich I planned to use the cards for. Even the manger said it says on each c
ard they are good until 02/2016, he said that should be that you can use it
till the last day of the month. I finally told him I can not wait any long
er. He suggested I call the 800 number on the back. I did today ans was tol
d that the money had been deducted off beginning after 7 months. What a rip
off this is. You give someone a rebate then you take it back. I think this
is an insane policy which I was not informed about. I stayed on the phone
15 mins. to find this out and the guy was rude to me acting like it was all
my fault.

I feel the Thirty dollars should be returned to me this is insane. It is a
very bad practice and bad for business, when the card clearly states good t
ill 02-2016. Not even the manager in the store understood the card had to b
e used in a time frame so how is the customer to know, this is just a tric
k to keep their money.

I am so upset if this is not rectified I will not shop Jcpenny any longer a
nd I will tell others eveyone I know what a rip off the place is. I will us
e my hard earned money in other places if this is not corrected.

I’m very disappointed with my interaction with the billing department (that is if we can call it a department) I called as I had ordered on line 2 pairs of shoes. They didn’t fit so I ordered 2 more shoes. Then I took all 4 pairs to the JC penneys store to send them back and receive my credit. I only got 1 credit. I was on the phone for over an hour and 4 departments later. The billing department is broken down into 4 different departments and none of these departments can see the whole bill. billing so they could read my bill to me but couldn’t tell me anything about some credits had to transfer me over to orders to see what items was ordered. but they could only tell me my items and the date of order as far a a credit I needed to go to another department call credit something and they couldn’t see if any adjustments was made. Then I was sent to the credit card department and they can’t see only what is on my credit card but no credits. I asked for a manager as an hour and still no answer I was given Tina who said if she could not answer my question then my question would be rest and she was sorry she couldn’t help me. I truly think a billing department that can see all the bill and know how to read them is needed. All this run around is crazy and I don’t have time for this. JC Penneys needs to find a way to get this together before you loss a lot more customers


Hylton Turner February 10, 2016 at 5:24 pm

Dear Mr. Ellison,

I was in Virginia this past weekend attending the funeral of my sister and decided to stop into the JC Penney store #2370 to purchase jewelry for my wife for Valentine’s day. I was very impressed with the display and especially the price which was advertised special discounted 40-90% off with purchase over $100.00. The sales associate confirmed the bracelets in assortment of diamonds, silver and gold which were all on the same round bracelet display stand all marked down to $99.00. I decided to do something extra special for my wife this year (our 4th anniversary)and purchase four pieces (one for each year). The regular price was a little less than $300.00 discounted to $99.00. When she scan the last piece it was regular priced at a little over $500.00 (Silver Diamond Cuff Bracelet 1/4 ct. item #29540530110301. Before signing (credit card)I noticed the total cost and asked why the large total. The associate rechecked the ticket and noticed the Cuff Bracelet was more than the other jewelry. She acknowledge the advertised price but had to call the department manager to possibly override the price on the bracelet which I understood.

The department manager came and it was explained to her the situation and she stated she could not override such a large amount and begin to talk with the associate who had placed the jewelry on display. The department manager called Mr. Steven Quintana who identified himself as the store manager. As soon as Mr. Quintana arrived the associate who had put the items on display immediately begin to tell him I was trying to get the item cheaper than the cost. I was rather angry the only thing I wanted was the item at the advertised price. The department manager informed Mr. Quintana that was not the case. The associate placed all of the items on same display stand advertised at $99.00 and the associate was at fault.

Mr. Quintana’s final word after seeing the difference in the price of the item stated he could not take the loss and let me have it at the advertise price the only thing he could do was to give me 25% off instead of the 20% I would get by using my Penney charge card.

I was and am very upset because, 1. The associate (Caucasian) accused me (African- American)of lying and trying to get something underhanded. 2. I feel I should have been allowed to purchase the item at the price they advertised then change or correct their mistake. Not wanting to cause a disturbance or make a nasty scene I just purchased one diamond bracelet and a nice heart pendant which is nothing compared to what I wanted for my wife.

I would like to purchase the item at the store’s advertised price of $99.00 if possible. I can be reached at (913)486-XXXX, hyltont@XXXXXX or Kearney, MO 64060

How the mighty have fallen. For years JCP was known as the top of the department store chains. I was incredible disappointed with my latest interaction with JCP on line. I ordered a shirt , with a gift card. After I received the delivery date and receipt, I threw out the gift card. A few days later, I received a email that my order was canceled. I called JCP customer service. WOW, is all I have to say. Their customer service is so disappointing. The first man I talk to was rude, and chastised me for throwing out the card before I got the merchandise.Said he would file a claim, and I should get a check in 10 days. 3 weeks later, still dealing with customer service, waiting for that gift card. After 1/2 hour phone waits, The last lady I talked to was pleasant enough, but placed me on hold for 10 minutes searching the person I had talked to the week before. She said no one took my call. As if I was lying to her. At this point I should receive the gift card in the next two week. Not holding my breath. So sorry for your company JCP. You lost a long time customer. Your customer service and online shopping is very substandard.

I had the opportunity to go shopping at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City, New York. My sister had purchased a pair of pants for me as a gift and I needed to return them. I was credited the amount and went looking instead for ladies undergarments – specifically a new bra. I had the pleasure of meeting your Sales Clerk Debbie who works in the Ladies Department of that store. She was extremely pleasant and very cheerful. She sincerely wanted me to be pleased with my shopping results. Debbie spent at least 45 minutes with me helping me to find a bra that I would like, mine was several years old. I began to become discouraged because I really don’t enjoy shopping anyway but Debbie would not give up and continued to encourage me. She spent time picking out different bras that she felt I would like. She also investigated on the computer the many bras that your store offers hoping to find just the right one for me. I want to thank you for employing Debbie. She is a true asset to your business and I will definitely be returning to your store and I want you to know that I literally haven’t shopped in JCPenney for at least five years. Upon my departure she suggested that if I needed anything in the future to please come back and look her up and she would personally help me to select whatever I might be looking for on my next shopping trip. She literally made my day and I am the kind of person that if I don’t like something I will let you know. I will also let you know if I do like something and I felt that I should express my thanks to you for having someone as sincerely thoughtful and caring as Debbie available to help your customers. Thank you again,
Sheila Rose

Hi! I need to let you know how spectacular Betty at the crossroads mall kalamazoo Michigan is as well as the other co workers are. Yesterday I returned a watch i purchased online. It broke. I wasn’t happy. It was my birthday gift. I gave Betty crap. I was sure they were wrong in the amount refunded to our card. Turns out, I was wrong. Betty was so professional in the way she spoke to us. Remarkble. I was a butt head. I am taking her a bouquet tomorrow.

I’m writing to implore you to look into opening a JCP in Great Northern mall in Clay NY. Since the one in Shoppingtown is closing it leaves only one in Destiny mall, for all of CNY. Seniors can not navigate Destiny due to the size, and the lack of safety, and the north country is much closer to Great Northern. Most of us truly believe the mall could revive with you as a new anchor store! Please. Look forward to hearing from you.


Takeera January 27, 2016 at 7:52 am

Hey I order a jacket from jcpenney damn near 3 weeks ago and tried to get a new size.. They have wasted a tone of my time playing games!!!! Everytime they say they are sending one out the order gets f-ing canceled! Which is real frustrating and keep trying to give me money back on a damn gift card! No I gave y’all my money through a credit card so give me money back on it. I’m not shopping with them anymore!!! This was the worst experience of my life.


Judy Pleasants January 22, 2016 at 1:12 pm

I ordered two Chloe Rockers on line,. They were delivered in a timely time frame. The two men who delivered the rockers could not get the base on either chair. The screws did not line up with the drilled holes. My husband said he would work with trying to put them on. After several hrs and he could not either. We called and wanted the chairs to be picked up. We called on Dec. 28th and talked to a Lewis. He put the order in to have the chairs picked up. Said it would be the week of Jan. 4th. No one called for a schedule pick up. We called back on Jan. 6, 2016 and talked to a Portia. She said some one would call in the next few days. No one called. Jan. 12th same call talked to an Andrea. She said they would be picked up and to call after they were picked up so they could credit our account. No one called. Called back on Jan. 19th talked to a Coco she promised someone would call with in 24-48 hours she contacted the support group. Today is Jan. 22nd NO ONE HAS CONTACTED US YET. I will never ever order on line again and not sure I will ever use JC Penney for anything. Lie after lie after lie. I am sitting here with two rockers that do not work that need to be picked up and we have called 4 times and still no one will get back with us. I saw the CEO of Penney Marvin Ellison on TV last night saying they hoped to turn JC Penney around. I DON’T THINK SO. I will send a certified letter to the corporate office and certainly will tell all my friends what a horrible experience this has been and for them to shop else where. Seems JC Penney has communication problems.

I bought the Cook’s programmable coffee marker around July 2015.
About 6 weeks later it just stopped working so I took it back and the sales lady
said for me to call customer service so I did and they said go back to the store and ask
for the store manager or LOD which I did and got another one and that one lasted about a month and stopped working so I took it back and got yet another one and it lasted 2 weeks and stopped working so I took it back.The floor manager said since I didn’t have the original sale receipt of 19.99 plus tax I could only get a 7.99 credit to use toward another coffee marker because at some point in the last 45 days it sold for 7.99.All I asked was to get another brand of equal or lesser value.She would not let me get anything but the Cook’s and after 3 that quit working I didn’t want another.You have a programmable Mr.Coffee for 21.99 and I would have been happy to pay the difference of 2.99 after my original 19.99.


Pleased Customer January 17, 2016 at 6:50 pm

I just want to tell you of a positive experience I just had with your customer service. I purchased online earlier today and then noticed later on that you had put out a new sale this evening. My husband contacted customer service and without hesitation was given the credit for the difference. I am sorry I had stopped shopping at JC Penney but after this experience, it will now be my go to store. I can’t wait to tell everyone about my positive experience! Thanks again!!!


Sandi Colosimo January 14, 2016 at 7:49 pm

To whom it might concern, I live in Price, UT and it was just announced that our store location is due to close. My age is 65. I want to express my concern in this matter. Our area really NEEDS this store. We really rely on it’s quality and availabilities on all levels. Customer service and family jobs will be effected as well. This area needs employment! Please advise. Sandi


Jill January 12, 2016 at 9:23 pm

I am writing to complain about the horrible customer service at the home department in the Poughkeepsie ny store . On Saturday I purchased the JCP home 50 piece Ashley dinnerware set .. The salesman Kenneth was wonderful it was very heavy and I couldn’t lift it so he carried it out to my car . When I got home and unpacked them 5 of the white dishes had. Black spots baked into the glaze. I drove back to the store that night. With only the 5 plates and my receipts. Because even if I could get all 50 items back in the box. I could not lift it . I just wanted to. Get replacements for the 5 defective plates . I was told by the sales girl that that could not be done unless I bring back the whole set . When I asked why she couldn’t just take the dishes out of another set and mark that set as damaged her and her managers response was there is no way we can do that . It would mess up our inventory . I did not want a hole new set . Suppose I bring that set home and I have same problem. Not to mention I can’t lift the box . They refused to exchange the plates . And I can’t even rerun them because the box is to heavy for me. The manager didn’t even come out to talk to me he just said no over the phone . When I tried to talk to a store manager they said he’s not here . Won’t be here till next week . This should have been a easy exchange and fix . Now I’m stuck with defective. Plates . And because of this experience I will no longer be a jcp shipper . To bad you don’t employ more people like the salesman Kenneth who helped me when I purchased the item. Thank you.

I emailed J.C. Penney numerous times to complain about some ladies intimate underwear and how they unraveled the first time I wore them, and they were NOT cheap. I used to work in Product Development for an Apparel Company and I know we always got back to the customer. You would think since economic times are not the greatest, they would get back to me as soon as possible to try and correct the situation. I work in an office and these intimates were ideal for work, however, now if they come apart after only one time. I wish J.C. Penney would contact me and make this right.


Carol January 10, 2016 at 8:09 am

I am baffled as to the manner in which JCPenney does NOT address customer complaints. I placed an order on 1/5/16; received all the items with the exception of one which they said was on back order but added they COULD NOT VERIFY PAYMENT METHOD! This made no sense as I had already paid for and received the other items. They ultimately cancelled the one item stating they COULD NOT VERIFY PAYMENT METHOD! Disgusted!

First, to the person who left their bag in the store, jcp does have cameras (my mother used to work security there) so there is no reason they cant see what happened to your bag. Unless of course the store is like the maryland stores, and the employees are thieves! Then thats why they wont share the video.
I places an order to be shipped to the white marsh md store on dec. 25th- and it still has not shipped!! All items were in stock, so what is the problem??? Did Employees take my order for themselves again??? Yes i said again because it has happened before. Im done shopping at jcp. Its not worth the aggravation

I lost my shopping bag on new years day inside JC Penney in Stree south point mall durham NC with some clothes purchased from JC penny and 2 pair of shoes from other store while walking the on shoe dept of JC Penney I had my shopping bag with me I put down on the floor while trying a shoe from display then, accidentally forgotten while went to clothing beside each other. After few minutes I remember my shopping bag and went back where I left and It was gone. I asked the sales clerk was assigned in shoe dept. if someone turn in lost shopping bag and she said she just came back form her break she didn’t saw neither someone turn in. I was upset already for what happened and I lost from my own accord and most salesperson are not very helpful even I spoke with manager we have to beg information to help me. Anyone can walked in there robbed them blind No person looking for shoplifter. My husband try to call over the weekends and asking for manager. Sadly they and they hang up us up over the phone very rude. JC Penney is hurting financially they cannot afford to pay surveillance camera person and most of the time No manager in duty. This bad experience I have felt don’t want shop JC Penney anymore. All we want to know if they can tell us what happened to my lost shopping bag from there surveillance camera just a little concern to make feel better but they act they careless. I felt they should help me as there costumer it was lost inside there store.

Today, I received my order which included two bras that I ordered. Unfortunately, one of the bras was the incorrect size that I ordered. I ordered a 40D and was shipped a 36B. I called the 800 customer service number and was told that I would have to place a new order for the bra to be replaced. This is not my error and I feel that I should not have to go through such measure for something that was sent to me in error. I ordered a 40D bra Item FC124-8070Q and should have received the size that was specified and not a 36B. Where is this companies’ accountability? I got off the phone feeling as if I had made the error when in fact I know that it was on the part of whomever packed my order. I would thought that JCPenny would have shown accountability by sending me a return shipping label and my correct bra. I feel hassled and I do not appreciate the so call manager that I spoke to whom talk to me as if I was dumb.

This last Saturday (1/2/16) I had a hair appt scheduled with Jennifer. I’ve been to her once before, as she was recommended by a co-worker, and I was happy with her, so I returned. When I arrived (on time), young girl at the front went to tell Jennifer, who brushed her off and shook her head “no.” Young lady came back and told me Jennifer was running late because she had just accepted a walk-in, and was already applying foil to her hair. Then asked if SHE could take my appt, or reschedule me with Jennifer for after 5:00pm. I told her I was not confident about scheduling a later appointment with Jennifer, as she obviously is not someone who honors her commitments. The three young ladies at the front were nice and helpful, but Jennifer NOT ONCE came over to address me (and she’s stationed right behind the young ladies’ reception area), nor did she offer explanation or apology. She left the young ladies to deal with an unhappy customer, and had no care or respect for me or my time. Terrible customer service.

I was at the salon at the Boynton Beach Mall and had a appointment at 2:30 pm with Latifa Boussolo. When I got there she pulled the receptionist aside and asked her question. Next, I heard her talking to a stylist name Jeff and asked him if he could take me because she didn’t feel good. He was booked solid and was in able then she took me to her chair and asked me want I needed done and walked away for about 15 minutes when she arrived back she told me she had another appoint coming in and was unable to do my hair and if I wanted I could wait 30 minutes for another stylist in which I proceeded to tell her I had an appoint at 230 and now it was around 3:00. She then proceeded to walk away again and never came back so I got up and walked to the waiting room for the other stylist. It was about 4:30 when she was finally was able to take me. The whole time I was sitting their Latifa not once had a customer come in. I think she might have be discrimating against me. Why else would she lie to me and the other stylist about her having another appointment. Then in the process of getting my hair done I was told that I needed to pay for my service because they needed to close the register. Which really upset me because I still was done and wasn’t sure I would like it. Then around 6:35 the light were shut off and I still wasn’t done with my hair. They were just about to lock the store up and we were still there. Meanwhile I had to leave withy hair not completely done but the sure did make me pay for the service

I drove 25 miles one way to your Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Location yesterday and 40 miles one way to your Mentor, OH location today to order probably in excess of $2000 worth of custom solar shades for my sunroom and in both instances I was totally ignored by the sales person in that dept. In both cases there was only 1 associate with the knowledge to help and multiple customers needing assistance. Neither salesperson bothered to acknowledge our existence even after directly speaking to them. Whatever happened to JC Pennys outstanding customer service? I would appreciate a call from the Corp office in response to this situation! I can be reached at 440-708-XXXX

On Dec 28th, 2015 I was at JCPENNEY store at coral square mall. After finish shopping I was at the register of men’s clothing section. I was buying a suit jacket from J.F. company. I asked the cashier lady if she can provide me a specific bag for my suit jacket. She first said, she was out of the bags. When I asked her if she can check to see if they have any bags in the back, she said , bags can be provided only if I buy the complete set. I told her that , I bought the vest and pants already, she still refused to give the bags. I never experienced this kind of service in JCP. I would like to know the rules about it. Feel free to contact about it please. I would love to get feedback from you.

BUYER BEWARE


Kathy watson December 26, 2015 at 3:44 pm

I have no choice but to post this complaint, I have exhausted numerous attempts to get my issue resolved. back in late November the actual date the Saturday after Thanksgiving I returned a bed frame that just would not work in my home. I worked with the associate over the phone and they said that my refund credit on my debit card would take 7 to 10 business days. OK , I try to be reasonable. but after numerous attempts contacting the customer service department in Milwaukee ,I consistently received the same feedback that I needed to be patient and that someone will contact me within 24I cons. Well that has never. Well that has never has never happened. My last attempt was on December 23rd. I ask to speak to a supervisor as I was receiving the same information from the associate who I found actually quite rude telling me again that I needed to be patient now I would have said
we thank you for being patient and we apologize for this inconvenience let me see what I can do for you. No she just kept going on and on how I needed to be patient. I was not screaming or being rude, but I have been patient for almost a month and I have yet to receive my refund which is over $1000.00. Again I asked to talk to her supervisor, she had the nerve to say there is no supervisor in this area . of course I found that very odd. Everyone reports to someone. my point here is I have been treated very badly by a company that I used to love. This kind of treatment is not acceptable and JCPenney needs to wake up and do a better job of handling their life long customer because you’re about ready to lose one right now. I want my refund yesterday . Let’s get this resolved? Bad news travels fast.



Luis Varela December 25, 2015 at 8:42 pm

To whom it may concern,

I’d like to start off saying that I have never in my life taken the time to complain about anything before like this (especially on Christmas day) and hope that you will take the time to at least read this, but because of the recent experience I had with the JCP Store #2913-2 (5265 S. Calle Santa Cruz) location I will no longer be customer for your business. For Christmas I decided to purchase my wife a ring to replace her wedding ring, it was a 12CT Diamond Two Tone Gold ring. The purchase date was November 14th, the reason I ordered the ring early was because I knew it would have to be resized as my wife has small hands. The first attendant who helped us originally with the transaction was helpful and recommended we order the ring a size smaller online so that when we send the ring to be resized it wouldn’t be by much. One week later the ring arrived at the JCP location and we were given a call. My wife and I decided to go to the store physically so that she may try the ring on and so that she could get the exact sizing that she needed. Veronica was the attendant who assisted us with the re-sizing of the ring or so it seemed. She required that we initial a document for their records so that the ring could be sent out to be resized. About 2.5 weeks later I call to see if I could get a status on the ring and was told that the ring is not there yet and that I should wait to be called instead. We waited with no phone calls, until the day before Christmas eve. That is when we decided to go to the store physically and see what the status on her ring is. A different person assisted us this time and told us we needed a slip which they give out when the ring is sent out to be resized. We pointed out that Veronica was the person who assisted us with sending the ring to be resized. Veronica instead made us feel like criminals as she questioned the fact that we did not have a slip. She repeated to us “Why wouldn’t I have given you a slip?”. We appreciate the fact she at least acknowledged the fact that she remembered us only because we brought our 5 month baby with us during both visits (I’m sure the receipt and my identification helped some too). After over an hour of Veronica and another employee trying to figure out what had happened we were told by Veronica that she had given the assignment to someone else, there was a miscommunication and the ring was NEVER sent out to be resized was the result of that miscommunication. My wife’s heart shattered, this was supposed to be her Christmas gift. At no point did a manager identify himself/herself to us or even try to make things right, which was even more surprising than the lack of responsibility displayed by Veronica. This was by far the worst experience we have ever had. The inconvenience to have to look for a different Christmas gift on New Year’s Eve I wish to not even get into. I hope someone took the time to read my entire message.

No longer a customer for your business,

Luis Varela

A week or so ago my husband and I decided to go shopping at JC Penney’s Fayetteville,AR location where we received the most unfriendly and unprofessional service ever! My husband waited in the men’s department to check out for twenty minutes while one out of the three associates standing behind the register checked out the customers. He got tired of waiting and came upstairs to the women’s department and got in line. I found him in line and we waited only to be checked out by a girl who clearly didn’t want to be there,she never spoke to us except to tell us how much money we owed, she never smiled or acted even remotely friendly, so my husband told her never mind I don’t want to buy clothes from you and we cancelled the transaction and we went to find the store manager. We asked three different people if we could speak to a manager and they made us hustle around on a wild goose chase to find her instead of her coming to us. When we finally got to talk to her she acted like it was funny to her, she didn’t take it seriously nor did she make it right. My husband told her that we have had horrible customer service from her store for a while now and she proceeded to tell us how their stores scores had actually gone up. Naturally that made us both mad that she was not only not dealing with the problem at hand but she kind of threw that in our faces in a very unprofessional,rude kind of way that made it seem like she didn’t care how we felt nor did she plan on doing anything about it. We are very displeased with the store as a whole and we will never ever be back again. This right here is why JC Penney stores are shutting down.thank you for your time


cheri nelson December 23, 2015 at 8:05 pm

Please take off my previous comment. It was an email meant for corporate. I do not want my name and phone number all over the Internet
Please take it off


cheri nelson December 23, 2015 at 7:55 pm

Dear sirs:
This email needed to be long to include certain facts to get to an extrodinary employee. Please take the time to read it.

I purchased a bed from JCP in Provo Utah.
The regional representatives happened to be there and both of them helped me thru the entire process.
I am a senior citizen and I have not had a new bed for 27 years. This was a big purchase for me. I was grateful for the help they provided me.
I have always had good customer service until it came to ” where is my bed”

Delivery was supposed to be Dec 8. It came and went. I gave reasonable time for busy season. Then I called the 800 number given to me in the Pennys brochure
It was a NIGHTMARE. From then on.
I called on Dec 16. The rep literally told be she could not find my order. Eventually she did. Then there was no record of it anywhere in the transportation and delivery of my bed. She told me there was no record of any bed where it was or that it even existed. They didn’t have it in the system and after asking several questions, nicely on my part. She told me she would email the vendor . She acted very annoyed that had the nerve to be even a bit upset because no one knew where my bed was.
And indignantly said is there anything else I can help you with. Yes, help me find my bed.

So I waited due to she said they would call me.
I waited.
I called the store I bought it from and the manager there contacted the regional rep and the regional rep found out at least my bed had been made .

I contacted the same 800 number again Dec 22 and talked to another rep. The first rep had left NO NOTES. There was no record I had even called. She told me the exact same thing , she would have toContact the vendor I had to wait up to two weeks for a call. I explained I already went thru this and no one had done anything
By tHis time I think it would perfectly natural to be a bit agitated, which I was. When I asked her to transfer me to her supervisor, she told me she didn’t have one .
When I explained I’ve worked my entire life and there was no way that office ran itself, she said yes she did have one but she wasn’t there. When I asked when WOULD she be there she got very sarcastic and said” they work in commission and come in when they want, is there anything else I can help you with” I said yes, help me find my bed.
I’m sure your getting the picture.

I literally talked to 3 other employees with the exact same responses and attitudes.
I finally got an employee who was kind and understood why I was upset and she transferred to Lashondra.
You need an entire office of Lashondras. She could teach each employed on how to handle difficult situations.
Lashondra took the time to find my order, that it had been shipped from Seally. It was not in Pennys system. No bed. No order. No nothing in Pennys system of my bed even existing .
She emailed , then called to make inquireys. To make a very long story short. Lashondra made many phone calls. Kept me informed. Calmed me down. Reassured me she would find my bed that it may take a couple days. Reported to me each step of the process. Kept calling the shipping company. Stayed on it until she found my bed, that it had been shipped from Seally, it was at Pennys trucking company. Pennys trucking company couldn’t find it so Lashondra ordered a “dock search” and kept checking in the status. They finally located , then Lashondra checked that it was the correct bed and pressed for a delivery
Then pressed again for delivery when I got no phone call from the trucking company.

Well, today Dec 23. She called them again, found they had my wrong phone number , corrected that and again explained the urgency for my delivery
The trucking company called me today, scheduled a delivery date for Dec 28. We’re it not for Lashondra this would not have all come to fruition.

I had 5 of your employees tell me there was nothing they could do.
I had Lashondra do her job and be kind and go the extra mile.
I am writing to report to you on an extrodinary employee who without her help I would have cancelled my order. My son told me to cancel my order get ahold of the regional rep since I had her card and complain. Go to Costco and he would buy me a bed.
I told him I was sticking with Lashondra. Today this senior citizen, me, on disability with a bad back is getting a new bad because of one individual. Lashondra.

I do not know what system you have within your company of honoring a outstanding employee. Lashondra deserves something for her extrodinary customer service.
I am a retired Registered Dental Hygienist and believe good employes deserve recognition for there are so many these days that just want a paycheck

You are welcome to contact me.
I do not know Lashondra nor have I ever met her.
I would like to however to tell her thank you in person.

Very grateful customer

I experienced the absolute worst customer service last night at your Brandon store. I was checking out upstairs in the children’s department. There were 4 girl cashiers, when it was my turn Josefina (Assoc: 0072) was the cashier that was assisting me. I had a $10 JCP cash (that I earned from past purchases), I had a $25 off $25 (that I earned from past purchases on black Friday), and I had a $10 off $10 that came in the mail. I asked Josefina if I could use them all in one transaction, and she said no. She did not give a reason, just no. So I said ok well then I will do 3 transactions. She again just said no that she can only do one and I would have to get back in line each time to do each transaction separately. She again did not give me a reason until I said that is ridiculous, I have never heard of this policy at JCP and she said it just started. Again, she was completely expressionless, cold, and unapologetic. I said so you are telling me I have to go back and stand in line, she said “yes, I can’t just sit here and keep checking you out.” (My thoughts to that were ok, so basically she is saying JCP does not want my business) I then asked for her store manager’s name, she proceeded on her walkie talkie requesting a manager. She literally stood there again expressionless, cold, and unapologetic and didn’t say a word while the other people stood inline. She refused to check me out for a second transaction. I informed her it was ridiculous that she is choosing to make everyone else wait. A store manager finally came I believe his name was Kevin; I proceeded with explaining to him what happened. He confirmed the new policy, and I explained to him that’s fine, but your employee could have provided much better customer service in explaining the policy. He just apologized and let her check me out one more time. I have never experienced this rudeness by someone that has chosen to work in retail, face to face with their customers. At my place of business if we treated our clients this poorly we would not have a job. After leaving the children’s department, one of the other cashiers rushed over to me and explained how long she has worked there and she has never seen a customer treated that way and talked to the manager about it as well. She spoke very highly of JCP and apologized for her co worker’s behavior. She was actually more sincere then the manager that came over. She also told me that she wanted so bad to jump in on the situation, but it was not her place to. She explained that Josefina is a seasonal employee and she is hoping she doesn’t come back next year. This all leads me to believe that this wasn’t Josefina’s first time treating your customers so poorly. I am not the typical complainer, but this situation needed to be told. As well as, maybe this new policy should be noted at each register, because I can guarantee you not every JCP shopper is aware.


Courtney Snow December 21, 2015 at 9:34 pm

Does this look like a girl’s pair of purple underwear to you??? Tell me why when I call your customer “service,” I’m told I HAVE to go to a store to give back these socks I never asked for nor ordered, AND you all are going to charge me PLUS SHIPPING to send me the right thing?! What kind of company are you running?? This is the week of Christmas. This was part of a present. And instead of apologies and making it right, the above is what I’m told?! And this is after half an hour and going to a “supervisor”!! Supervisor was Tonya eid: 7241 btw. So instead of an apology for my time, for YOUR FAULT, and that now I’m missing a Christmas present BECAUSE OF YOU ALL, I’m told I HAVE to give you people MORE of MY money and deal with terrible customer service and horrible company policies. I am posting this on all the social media sites and emailing your corporate, and I better be contacted about how you’re going to win my business back. Cuz I’m done with JCPenney right now. This is the most asinine thing I’ve ever experienced. #amazonhereicome.


anthony nickle December 21, 2015 at 7:14 pm

just wondering why afte several weeks, no response to my complaint about business practices was returned. its not very good business to screw the customer”””


Kim December 21, 2015 at 10:59 am

I WAS a JCP card holder since 1989. I recently went to do Christmas shopping at JCP and was told I do not have an account, yet I have 3 cards. I did not make my purchase at JCP and left the store. My account was closed for lack of use yet I was never notified that my account was being closed. I was told I can reapply. No I am not going to do that. I was a loyal shopper for more that 15+ years. Yet you go an close my account without any notice what so ever. The last 5 years have been hellish for me. I was very sick, both my sons needed surgery with medical bill well over $100,000 combined, I had to take my father off of life support and have had other family matters. Shopping was not a priority for the past few years. I had always had my JCP card and when I needed to run and get something I could. Not anymore. I am extremely hurt that I was a loyal customer for more then 15+ years. JCP was my second credit card I ever had and I my account is just closed with no notification what so ever. Well, I will not be shopping at JCP anymore. Kohl’s did not cancel my card so I will gladly give all my business to them instead. I wonder why JCP stock keeps going down. Oh yeah, you keep getting rid of your customers. As I also see from the websites there is no where to send a complaint because the email doesn’t work. JCP really doesn’t care about its customers at all. I am so done with them.


Keri wright December 20, 2015 at 7:39 pm

The worst experience ever!! We left during the middle of our session because we had to wait 2 and a half hours after our appointment to be photographed! !!!! The staff blamed it on online scheduling. The most horrible experience ever. We will never go back!!!! We have a 2 year old. And obviously he has not that much patience! We made this appointment for a reason…to have our pics by Christmas and before nap time!!!! We wasted 3 hours of our life to deal with this crap!! Why don’t you have an email for complaints! Honestly we r very nice people and yhis is ridiculous. Thanks because now we have no pictures to hand out for Christmas


Cynthia December 19, 2015 at 3:53 pm

How do you not have a way to email a complaint??? I had the WORST portrait experience this morning and spent $200 on pictures that I could have done myself. Please contact me for further info. I am extremely disappointed in the clear lack of customer service from jcpenney.


Bobbie Checketts December 19, 2015 at 1:15 pm

I’m writing to express my extreme disappointment with the service and products I recently received from JCPenney Portrait Studio. My family had an appointment at 5:20 pm for Christmas photos, but our session did not begin until after 6:00 because the studio was behind schedule. A courtesy call to inform us of the delay could have relieved much of the associated frustration, but instead my husband and I had to keep our toddler and 6-month-old baby entertained for 45 minutes until the photo session began.

Once we started, there were multiple delays because the photographer was also the manager, and she had to step out several times to address whatever issues they were having. Eventually, a different photographer attempted to finish the session, but by that point, our children were no longer interested in taking photos, so we ended abruptly. Our 10-minute session took 50 minutes, so it’s easy to see how they were so far behind schedule prior to our arrival.

I asked if we could return early the next day to finish the session when everyone was rested. They had an appointment available at 11:00 am, so the next day, I dressed the girls in their outfits and headed back to the studio. I arrived early at 10:20, and it was already chaotic. I was there for another several hours before I was finished and gone. It was simply not a good experience.

To prevent my time and effort from being completely in vain – and against my better judgment – I purchased the download to have the proofs sent to my e-mail, along with an order of Christmas cards. To say the quality of the photos and cards was disappointing would be an egregious understatement. Several of the backdrops in the photos are either curled on one side or wrinkled, and in some photos, the clip that holds the backdrop in place is clearly visible. It was so busy in the studio that I wasn’t able to closely scrutinize the pictures, but the deficiencies were very clear on my home computer. The clarity and paper quality of the cards is equally disappointing.

In closing, I’m simply requesting a refund so I can attempt to get reasonable quality photos from another studio before the Christmas season ends.

Thank you for your time,
Bobbie Jo Checketts


Christina Collopy December 18, 2015 at 3:10 pm

i placed an order on Nov 27 for Christmas gifts it is now Dec 18 and i did not receive all of my order and the tracking had sent to Ups on Nov 29 the update never changed past that so i called JCPENNEY to see where the rest of my order was and was told a week before Christmas that they did not have the boots i ordered now and it was a Christmas gift and now i do not have time to order another pair of boots. i was never notified that the boots that i ordered and clearly said in stock at the time and was charged for was no longer available.JCPENNEYS could of sent an email to let me know what was going on with my order so i would of had time to go ahead and order them from another store in time to receive for Christmas bad Management on the part of JCPENNEYS i will not order from them again and will continue to pay off my JCPENNEYS credit card and cut it up,, also i think the customer service 1-800 line was one of the worst i have ever seen i was on hold for 15 minutes and told to hold to let the girl check with UPS to see where the order was at and then on hold another 10 minutes until all of the sudden i was diconnected and had to go through the whole thing of calling back with another hold time of 25 minutes to be told they didnt have them what a mess and disappointment. lesson learned dont order anything from them again.


Ms. Stacey December 17, 2015 at 11:34 pm

Hello, I am hoping that the top dogs of JCPenny read this. There needs to be more cash registers at EVERY different department, not just a few central locations to check out with only one or two workers checking customers out and the long lines that wind into the isles. It is amazing to watch customers leave their items, me included on a shelf or at the register because we could wait in the long line. I know of several people that will go to our mall and sit outside of Pennys and not go in it because they say “there will be nobody to help you check out. If you do not correct this problem your profits will continue to decline.

I should first state that I only used the in-home service because I couldn’t get anyone to assist me on two attempts in the local North Point, Alpharetta GA store. I ordered custom blinds in Oct – finally after MY calling them, I was advised they would install them this past Tuesday, 12/16. The windows were measured twice by the decorator and then on another day by installers back in October. Finally they’re here to install in DEC. and the blinds are the wrong size – they do not fit! The installers told me they phoned the decorator when they were here. 24 hours later I still had not heard from anyone. I called and left a message only to receive a nasty call from the “decorator” I’ve had to work with only left to be advised via voice mail that I should refer to my cotnract – that I can not cancel the order they’ve failed to deliver! Now approaching 90 days- this is a failure to deliver the merchandise and breach of contract. WHO can refund the money your store has had all this time I need window coverings! Your customer service should call me. Pamela Giteles

My wife is blind and needs your customer service for help when ordering over the phone. She has gotten some very good help from some of your phone personel, but it may take a few calls to get a person that wants to help her. One time recently when she called the person told her that you have a special department for her and was put on hold for 45 minutes before she finally gave up. Another time they say to go online to order. When she explains that she can’t use the internet they say to hold on and never come back. Other times after explaing that she is blind and will need help, they say hold on and never come back. Maybe you should have your employees work one day blindfolded so that they can understand what my wife and all blind people go through every day.

I made several purchases just today to the tune of over $400.00. Upon returning home and getting the purchased gifts wrapped and ready to ship out I discovered that a security tag was not removed. I immediately telephoned the JC Penney in the Mount Shasta Mall and could not make contact with anyone in any of the mentioned departments. First of all the automated messages are barely audible and I was never given the option to possibly speak to a manager on duty. So needless to say I cannot wrap and ship these now and therefore they will not be delivered for Christmas. Considering it is a sixty mile round trip for me to I strongly feel that your company should somehow reimburse me for the time and gas expense I will incur due to your employee not doing their job and removing said security tags. I anxiously await your response!

I have tried to contact customer service twice online for a return of 3 $48 defective pillows and the email isn’t working. I’ve typed this message out 3 times as well as tried to call customer service with no luck. Where are these people? Can someone please give me a valid email address to get an exchange? It shouldn’t be this hard to contact customer service – especially for the prices I pay to shop at JC Penny.

Today I witnessed a manager at the Oswego Ny store named David Parker berate 2 employees who were talking to a supervisor. He was extremely rude and from what I saw completely out of order. I immediately sought his name and left my purchases where I was and exited the store. I will not shop in a place that treats their employees with such disrespect. I waited outside for several minutes deciding who or what I should do when I saw one of the employees leave in tears. This needs to be addressed immediately. I will not shop there again.

Dear J C Penney,

I am writing to you as a long time customer who is very unhappy. I raised 7 children on J C Penny cloths and have bought furnishing and other items over the years. On October 3rd I ordered custom draperies from the store in Willowbrook, Houston, Texas. They said the order would be in no later than 5 to 7 weeks.
I called last month and was assured the order would be in soon. I have no draperies and I am a very unhappy customer. I want my deposit back. You have not fulfilled you part of the agreement as it has now been 10 weeks. Please help me with this as I am not getting anywhere with the store. As far as I am concerned you failed to produce the items I ordered and I am not required to wait ¼ a year in hopes of getting the product. I do not want the product now as it so late that I have family coming in this week and not draperies.

Sincerely, Claudia Logsdon

I am contacting JCPenney for a customer service complaint I would like to address. My husband and I shop at JCPenney very regularly. We went to the Greenville JCPenney location in the Haywood Mall on November 21 to purchase Christmas gifts. We were assisted by Michael, a store employee. He was wonderful and truly helped us find three perfect pieces of jewelery that evening. We purchased these items with a Black Friday discount, paid, and planned to return within a short time to pick up our items. We were given a receipt and told that when we came to pick up the items, we would just need to show the receipt and we were good to go.

This evening, (December 10, 2015), we went into the same Greenville Haywood Mall location to pick up our items. We were assisted by a sales associate named Jared. When we presented the receipt, he went to get the items. He was gone for quite a while, and when he came back, he asked if we had these items shipped off to be resized? We said that we did not; we just intended on picking them up. We saw that Jared went to speak to the supervisor on shift and then return to my husband and I. He said bluntly, that we cannot find your items and we have two options for you. We can either refund you the purchase price or attempt to locate these items in our store. My husband and I were completely speechless. These three items were very special to us and we spent a great deal of time in looking for them. We paid in full on the first evening we visited (November 21), and were amazed that somehow our items were nowhere to be found. I explained to Jared that a refund was not acceptable whatsoever. I asked to speak to a manager on shift. He explained to me that the supervisor on shift was Betty, and she was currently working with a customer in diamonds. Jared said to us, “She would come over to help, but she is working with a diamond purchase so she won’t be able to help you right now.” Again, my husband and I were baffled. First, we felt that a “diamond purchase” certainly came before our service. Second, this was a mistake on JCPenneys’ part, and we were told we would not be assisted at that time. I felt that this was an issue that truly needed to be addressed, so we chose to wait for Betty. My husband and I waited over an hour. During this time, we went in search for the three pieces of jewelry in the store. We tried our best to find the items that matched, and came up with our best options while we waited. Finally, Betty came to help us. She told us, just as bluntly, the items could not be found. She explained that it was a mistake on Michael’s part and that he did not fill the form out correctly, so these items had been sent back into the store for further sale. She explained that the 3 items we chose matched the price amounts on our receipt, and that we could leave with these items, but that there was nothing further that she could do. To be truthful, Betty seemed very uninterested and unwilling to work with us or show compassion in any way. We left with our three items that we found, and can only hope these are similar to the first three we purchased in November.
My husband and I have had nothing but a positive overall experience with JCPenney. It is where we bought my engagement ring, both wedding bands, and multiple jewelry gifts over our years togheter. Typically, JCPenney staff are helpful, compassionate and will go above and beyond what they are required to do. Tonight, we felt very neglected and umimportant to the JCPenney staff. We purchased items, paid for them in full- only to find they did not have them. When this was discovered, both Jared and Betty had no compassion or desire to help us with this. I understand that we did get to leave with some items, but there was nothing further that was done. We spent a lot of unneccesary time waiting around to come to a conclusion on what should be done. We came in expecting to spend 5 minutes and leave with our items, and ended up spending over two hours.

I had purchased an expensive watch from a different company online. I contacted Kay Jeweler’s via phone to ask if they would size my new purchase even though I did not buy it from there company. The salesman assured me that they would which pleased me to no end. The next day after a hectic day at work I traveled 30 minutes to their store in a storm only to be turned down. Very upset by this as I was leaving the mall I saw the sign for JCPenny so I decided to call them to see if they could help. The associate that answered my call told me to come on in and that they would be glad to help. The young lady was having hard time so she asked her supervisor to assist . My watch was done within minutes…. at no charge! Thank you lady’s of the jewelry dept. in JCPennys in Peru Illinois! Job well done!!!!

Your company should be disgusted with your customer service as well as your discrimination against other religions. You should remember their are other holidays than Christmas being celebrated. I purchased two pairs of jeans last week for a Hanukkah gift this week. One pair arrived yesterday, and when I go online to check the other it says backordered which your company failed to notify me on. ANd then I check my bank statement to see that your company has decided to charge me twice for my half assed purchase. When I try to chat with your customer service she decided to tell me that i should have checked tracking sooner and would have seen the item backordered, and then starts writting in capital letters which represents anger and frustration. If I have to check that proves how unreliable your company is. This letter will go to coorporate office as well as NBC news. You need to remember that other hokidays are at this time and peoples purchases could be gifts and should be handled

Bought the most expensive mattress on the floor, more than $5500 before sale. Sales Rep for some reason could not order through store and ordered it on-line. When delivered the box springs were damaged, took about two months to get replaced. When doing replacement we noticed the mattress was defective, sewn too short and coming apart. JCP sent out Inspector a couple weeks later who after another couple weeks determined the bed is indeed defective. Now to get JCP to warranty the mattress they are demanding that I purchase a second mattress in order to return the first one. WHAT? I have to buy two mattress sets because they sold me a defective one! Stay away from JCP if you want a warranty on any of that expensive furniture! I’ll be filing a complaint with BBB.

I placed an order on Black Friday, for 5 towels, coffee maker and headband. I received my order today of coffee maker and headband but NO towels. I received a credit of $24.10. The 5 towels totaled $30.12, that is $6.02 difference. I called customer service, told the representative and she put me on hold. I was on hold for 12 more minutes. I then hung up, called back and waited, when the representative answered, someone was yelling in the back ground, she had to mute it, I kept saying hello, hello, then she said I am here. She listened, then explained that I would get a refund for it up to 30 days, I explained I had gotten a refund already but it wasn’t the right amount. She said it showed 1 towel was sent. On my invoice it shows none were sent. Talk about bad customer service all around. I expect a refund of the difference and respectfully decline any offers of discounts because there are way too many other stores out there to have to deal with this. Please let me know when I will get it. I also have to ask, why have the towels available on the website, if they aren’t!
PS. I tried to send an email through the website but you will never guess! The system was down and told me to try again later. Great customer service JCPenney.


Michelle L Pattison December 5, 2015 at 9:35 am

Well lets see this is my 6th attempt to resolve my issue. I have been a JCP card holder for years and gold and Platinum for years. This year alone I have spent over 1700.00 at JCP. My issue is I am not receiving my coupon booklets that is stated in my credit card agreement. While others that are not JCP card holders do receive the benefits I am suppose to get for spending a certain amount each year.

Is there anyone out there that can help me resolve this issue. I am disappointed in JCP, I have also suggested the store to friends and family. I will continue to shop because I love the products sold at JCP but feel you do not treat customers fairly and especially those that spend a lot of money in your store. My card has also been in good standing, so not sure why I am not receiving my special perks as a platinum holder. Hope someone sees this and can help

I purchased a groupon for the portrait studios to take some family pictures i was excited because my good friend takes pictures every year and i love them. We get there and get called in a timely manner once we get into the studio every goes downhill from there! she starts with family pictures which i figured she would start with the smaller kids seeing i had 18month old twins a 6 yr old and my teen.. But this is her job she knows best.. we start taking picture three pictures in her camera fails. Ok no problem she says she needs a new battery leaves returns and starts up again and Boom again not working she leaves again we wait she returns attempts to take another shot and no luck! this is now 25mins into our session, which should’ve only take that long to get all the shots we needed. Nope so now we have to move studios we go across the hall and start up again and two shots in again her camera doesn’t work but then she notices it starts working she starts up again and here comes her manger and interrupts our session to scream at her for taking out the transformer from the room and she needs it now! this is in the middle of our session when she’s finally making way now my kids are over it don’t want to sit still or even think about another picture. we got 9 shots, 9!! in the hour of somewhat shooting and out of the 9 two were decent and I’m being nice.. the pictures were nothing special she didn’t attempt to add props i brought in the gift boxes to get the babies to sit still she didn’t do anything . I am beyond disappointed and I highly doubt I would ever take pictures let alone refer anyone again. This was by far the worse experience I’ve ever had. Oh and you think you’re manager would’ve been apologetic to us Nope she basically said here’s three prints for free from the photographer not on Jcpenny behalf smh

I went to JCP return items on 11/22/15 at Jacksonville FL and still waiting on a refund (December now). I spoke with 4 different associate and all telling me a different story. I’m very disappointed right now with JCP costumer service and associate.

My husband and I shopped on Thanksgiving day of all days. We are headed out of the country and needed to buy gifts and other items. We leave soon and I started packing and discovered that a security tag wasn’t removed. This is unacceptable and an inconvenience. I am a full time student with finals coming. I really don’t have the time. I dont even live in the same city as the store nor is there a closer store. I now have to take time away from something else to do this. I expect to speak to a manager when I get there because this is now the second time this happened. A tag was left on my swimsuit in August and I had to stop packing to go to the mall

We hope that you will continue this very special promotion as it means a lot to our family.
Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all

Your service provided to me and my partner when we attempted to sign up for your wedding registry is below any type of standard I would think a respectable business would fine acceptable. My partner and I went into the location at North Point Mall in Alpharetta, GA on Sunday, November 15, 2015. First, I really do not think the treatment we received was because we are a gay couple. I think it is because of a basic lack of service skills on the part of your associates and the lack of realizing that some customers do not want their business broadcast for others to hear. We approached the customer service counter and told them we would like to register. One associate at the counter stated he would need to call someone to provide assistance. Not once were we welcomed or given any indication that the potential business our registering would bring to the store would be appreciated. We just stood to the side. After waiting, a man arrived to assist and told us we would have to wait further while went to get an IPAD. We waited another lengthy amount of time before he returned only to tell us the IPAD would not work. Additionally, the expectation was that we discuss our business in the main aisle in front of the customer service area with other customers listening. It is obvious that your associates are oblivious to the basics of customer service.
Since we had already selected our wedding bands at your store, we reluctantly went to the jewelry department to finalize the purchase. We asked to speak to the store manager who arrived to speak to us. We explained the situation and the manager offered the usual rote “we are sorry” statements. I suggested that she might want to go to Macy’s and act as a secret shopper in their registry area to get an example of good and respectful customer service. Never once did this woman offer to walk with us to the registry area to ensure that we received the service we initially requested. This was such an obvious solution and it simply did not occur to her. She did not attempt to offer a resolution. She finally just slipped away and went about her business. Her behavior only reinforcing to the associates in the jewelry area that bad customer service is acceptable. I do need to add though that the woman assisting us with the rings went out of her way to be professional. Perhaps the store manager should take this woman to lunch to learn about the true meaning of customer service.
I want to conclude that the woman assisting us with arrangements who suggested we register in your store is furious – not that it matters to your company. She told us she feels personally responsible for not checking out your store’s registry service before referring people. Again, I do not think this service was the result of our being a gay couple. It is my opinion that basic customer skills are lacking from the top down.

I would like some assistance with a sofa I purchase for last Thanksgiving. We purchased the Friday collection of sofa and two chairs. The clerk offered us a warranty on the slip covers which we were not interested in, what we weren’t told is that was the only warranty with the sofa. I am very disappointed to say the frame has collapsed on the front and the sofa is starting to cave. This is not a sweater…I am not sure what I am to do with a broken sofa. The chairs are fine but I am SO disappointed that JCPenney has dismissed my problem. I am not sure what they expect me to do with a sofa that is just a year old. I would appreciate if a service tech could come out to repair the sofa and restore my faith in JCPenney. I was not asking for a new sofa, but to dismissed is not acceptable.


Angie November 19, 2015 at 11:06 am

I was shopping in the the women’s department looking at jeans on Nov. 18th, 2015, in the evening. I wasn’t asked if I needed any help nor even acknowledged. There were 4 or 5 associates more interested in talking to each other than helping customers. Not only did you lose a sale, but also a customer. It is really sad that JcPenney doesn’t care about customer service. It use to. I did buy jeans at another store in the mall where the customer service was excellent.


Aliyah Hoskins November 17, 2015 at 12:03 am

Dear Heads of JC Penney,

Thanksgiving has been known to be a family oriented time of the season for many, many years, and it has especially been one of my favourites while growing up. The mouth-watering smell of goodies escaping out of the kitchen days prior to the Thanksgiving feast; bringing memories back. Oh, but you can’t forget about the delicious iconic turkey that so many of us look forward to, along with the side dish of stuffing, and so much more!

On that special day you have the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, sisters, brothers, parents over; so many people over that you almost want to hide because it’s too much! But the laughter, memories made, and time spent together is so worth it in the long run.

I understand Black Friday; retail thrives on that day. So many shop for whatever they want at a cheaper price and it’s a way that some families continue to spend time together. As well as getting a lot of their Christmas presents out of the way and later packaged for another family oriented holiday.

However, as of the last three years, you have made the corporate decision to begin opening early for Black Friday and thus the media have begun to name Thanksgiving Day, Black Thursday instead, because of other retailers following along with the times. The first year (2013) you went along with this horrid idea, JC Penney opened up at 8PM Central Time, though before, wanting your associates to be there hours prior, so they could make sure to be there on time as well as to do additional promotions for the pending sales. The next year (2014), because your company did well in your sales from the previous year, you wanted to make more money and made another decision to open up at 6PM Central Time. Then recently, news has spread that you plan to open up at 3PM Central Time this year (2015).

I get that you want to make more money, that you can take the time off to spend with your families because you do not have to be in the stores, but how dare you take this special time away from other families. Yes, you can argue how you are not forcing the people that work for you to work in retail, however not everyone has a choice of where they work- most times if they have a job they are thankful.

As a consumer, I am completely abhorred by how you are destroying time with families for your “smaller-chained” employees. JC Penney has been my favourite store to shop at for so many years. I like the styles that are offered as well as the prices that I tend to find. I go there every time that I want something new to spruce up my wardrobe and I shop there for presents for others. Yet, the continuation of disregard for your employees is putting a very bad taste in mine, as well as so many other’s mouths. I have boycotted K-Mart because of their inconsideration of their workers on Thanksgiving Day, and I will be extremely sad if I decide to do the same to you as well.

If not for the care of your consumers, think about your employees, the ones with families who cherish the time with their kids, or parents, or grandparents that will not be around forever. The times people spend with their loved ones, is cherished, and extremely needed when the world is being bombed and terrorized, and the loss of life is becoming a greater possibility every day.

I am not writing to a bunch of heartless, money-grubbing, robots. I am writing to men and women who have families of their own, who understand that every moment is precious- and is to be used wisely. Please take this letter into consideration and the lives and families of those who work for you.

A Concerned Consumer

I could not agree more! I am an employee at JCPenney and only 17 years old. I have to work on Thansgiving at 2:30 in the afternoon until 10:30 at night for “Black Thursday.” My family LOVES Thanksgiving, it is our favorite day of the year that we get to spend together, and this year I get no part of it.


Judy Ozmar November 16, 2015 at 1:32 pm

Last week I went to my local J C Penney store to purchase two items. I had checked the online price before I went. The two items were in stock, so I asked if I could purchase them at the online price. I was not allowed to do that. The associate placed the order online for me. The two items were put back on the shelves and the exact same items were shipped free to the store for me to pick up at a later date. This seems like an unreasonable way to do business. The company had extra work to do, the store lost a sale and I have to make another trip to the store. Who is benefited by this practice? Wouldn’t it make sense to honor online prices at your stores? Thank you for considering this.

Hello my name is Justin Childs. I am contacting you today because for about 5 years i have been waiting for the managers in sunrise mall in Massapequa.

Dear Mr. Johnson, Mr. Hannah and Mr. Kramer,
I was extremely shocked to be a victim of DISCRIMINATION and ANTISEMITISM at your JCP store located at the Mall at Wellington Green in Wellington, Florida. On Saturday, November 7,2015, I went to JCP at the Mall at Wellington Green to purchase items which I needed to decorate my home for Hanukkah. I was rudely informed by one of your sales personnel ,in the mist of a large Christmas department , that JCP does not have any Hanukkah decor nor will you ever supply decor for the holiday, Hanukkah. I was with one of my adult children who was as shocked as I was at this information and she suggested that I contact an attorney, social media and/or the news station in our area in reference to this strong display of discrimination and antisemitism.
Many people would have gone to social media, their local news station or an attorney to complain and report about the prejudice against people of the Jewish faith that JCP displays. I have chosen to speak/ write to you first. I am not looking for any gains from JCP but an explanation on why JCP practices antisemitism and discriminates against the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. As a result, my adult children and I have cut up our JCP charge cards and will no longer do business at your place of employment.

Oh how all these comments make me want to cry. I too have been the victim of abuse from this company. I have been a loyal customer for years. My payment record up to this point was pristine. Due to this company’s incompetence and negligence; a credit card (that i didnt ask for) was sent to my mailbox wherein it was promptly stolen and used for almost $2000.00. I didnt receive my statement and realized I hadnt paid my bill. When I went on line to pay it; I was informed it was closed due to fraud. There had been multiple transactions on this card in two different stores. Now, I am left with having to fill out a report and now I find that because I was late with a payment… payments are doubled. You know it was bad enough being raped by an unknown person who had a grand time with my card; it was even worse when J.C. Penneys is standing in line waiting to do the same. Need I tell you that I was never informed of the transactions until I called to make a payment? Need I tell you that not once was the person who had my card asked to show id? How interesting that the cameras on the days that it happened were changed out and the old discarded? Yes, shame on me for making a late payment BUT SHAME ON YOU J.C.PENNEYS FOR BEHAVING JUST AS BAD AS THE PERSON WHO STOLE FROM ME THE FIRST TIME. YOUR BEHAVIOR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.


Megan November 8, 2015 at 1:12 pm

To whom it may concern

I am writing as a loyal customer who has been incredibly disappointed in the way a recent situation has been handled.

Let me preface this complaint by saying I buy ALL of my curtains for my home at JC Penney and have always had stellar service. I have recently had new windows in my home and was considering purchasing new custom curtains, But the recent event has made me question the integrity of the company.

Recently I purchased curtains and a rod for my son’s room (from the ORLAND park store) and had them shipped to me. In the shipment were two XL Columbia coats which I didn’t order. Being the honest person I am, I called the company immediately to which I was informed they would have to charge ME for a return package. I was advised on the phone to return the items (on my own time) to the store. I didn’t think much of it, but when I started to tell people of the error, I started to get mad! How did they know I live anywhere near a JC Penney?? Major inconvenience!!

I gave it serious thought and almost donated the coats to someone in need. But I decided to do he honest thing….I took them back and wasn’t offered anything for my trouble. So I took MY time, MY gas and MY energy on a Sunday to do the right thing. This happened at Macy’s to a friend and they got a full credit for the items. JC Penney didn’t even offer a thank you!! Then I asked for a receipt and got a ridiculous hand written paper from a manager (Enrique)!!

I’m horrified at this! I should’ve taken it to my church for someone in need!!!! It really makes me think twice about ever shopping here again!!!!!

My son and I were handed coupons for $10 off a purchase of $10 today in your store and the store manager Kim Jones did not honor the experience and stated that since they were used previously there was nothing she could do.

We purchased a leather sofa from JC Penney. About 2 months later, the middle section sunk in almost to the floor. Penney’s sent out a tech who said they could repair it by inserting more foam in the cushion. We have no children and my husband is the only occupier of the sofa, and he usually sat on the ends of the sofa with the arms. We were skeptical about getting the same style so we exchanged it for another style. And this only gets better. We were told that it could take up to 3 months for delivery because this leather sofa was custom made. After two months, I called Penney’s to find out the status on delivery. Well, the original order was never taken because they couldn’t find it in the “system.” We had to reorder the sofa and wait another 2 months before it arrived, which was May 2015. In October, the middle section (again) of the sofa caved in and it sounded like the particle board frame was broken. We had to again deal with the incompetence of the JC Penney staff, where nothing is documented during any conversation so you have to start from the beginning and explain what happened. If you’re lucky, the hold time will only be about 45 minutes, not counting the times you’re disconnected and have to tell the story again. If this wasn’t our worst nightmare come true, it would be laughable. After weeks of being told different procedures from different staff members and holding and waiting to be called back, I got my bank involved. Capital One called on 10/7 and spoke to Dennis at JC Penney, 800-442-7902, ext. 221904. The conversation was recorded. Dennis informed us that since I had two bad experiences with Penney, that he would issue a call tag to pick up the broken sofa within 7 days and I would receive a full refund of $1,957.09 plus the $125.00 restocking fee to haul it back. Dennis said the full refund would be credited back when the sofa was returned to their warehouse, which takes about 7 days. This entire conversation was recorded by Capital One. The next day, 10/8, I received a call from Ed at the same number Dennis called from, 800-442-7902. He informed me that a tech would be out to inspect the sofa so they could do the repairs. I told him that’s not what was agreed upon with Dennis at JC Penney the day before so I told him to cancel because we were waiting for someone to pick it up. No one from JC Penney came to pick it up so I called Capital One again. They called JC Penney and was told that the standard procedure was to send a tech to inspect before hauling away the defected sofa. Today, 10/21, a tech arrived and took pictures of the sofa. He said that JC Penney does not give refunds, only exchanges. I told him that’s not what was recorded with Dennis at JC Penney and Capital One. The tech took photos. The middle portion (underside particleboard frame) of the sofa was broken in 3 pieces. The tech said that someone will be contacting me within 2 days. I asked him to put in his notes to JC Penney that I was promised (recorded) a full refund including restocking fee. The defected sofa was picked up today, so let’s see how long it takes Penney to refund my money. I have since filed a claim with BBB. If you’re looking to buy a sofa from JC Penney, you’ll probably find better quality at Goodwill. I have never known a company where every person I dealt with is a complete idiot. Don’t even ask a rep to transfer you to someone at a higher level, because he or she doesn’t exist.


Delene Emick November 20, 2015 at 3:52 pm

I too am having issues with a sofa, this one was to be Made in America, which is why we purchase the sofa and two chairs. I understand furniture wears out but don’t treat us like idiots, this is not our first furniture purchase. I am truly sad they will not stand behind their products.

Does leaving a comment here actually do any good? Consumer complaints published Online against JC Penney, or any other major retailer, does not impact the corporation. No one here should expect any type of response from them, let alone a favourable one.


Delene Emick November 20, 2015 at 4:30 pm

I am hopeful you got a response and I am not totally wasting my time.

My wife and I stopped by Jcpenney Friday to pick up some pants that we needed for dinner that night. We haven’t been to a Jcpenney in over 3 years do to so many bad experiences with coupon policy changes, store staff being rude and coupons not being accepted. We were in quite a rush do to our work schedule and we thought that we would give you all another try. We now know why we hate Jcpenney, you all had signs everywhere in the store that displayed take an additional 25% off the lowest ticketed price. We were were excited thinking that Jcpenney has finally went back to their roots of great deals with none of the fine print BS that annoys the crap out of everyone. Wlle also had a coupon for an additional $10 off on $25 or more spent. As we made our way to the register there was a customer that couldn’t use her coupon due to the 25% already being taken off. We thought that we misunderstood the lady and continued to wait to get our clothes we had over $150 in our hands, naturally getting more than we came in for, the couple behind us also were confused about the lady being told that they could not use her coupon with the sale as to no makings on the sign stated that you could not use any coupons. As we finally got to the register and rang up to $151 and some change we asked why didn’t we get the additional 25% off she said that it requires a coupon which we didn’t have. So I went and grabbed the sign to show them that it said noting about a coupon. She preceeded to argue with me telling me that we had to pick which deal we wanted. I was getting mad and the couple behind us said they quit shopping there due to the misleading adds and in store postings, as did we. The couple put their stuff on the counter and said “we will get ilour shit somewhere else, this is bullshit”. After the foul mood the staff put us in we on got 2 pairs of pants and left the rest there on the counter. We will not return to your store either, that is 3 separate purchases totaling over $400 that you all lost in about 10 mins if you all can’t figure this out then Jcpenney will be out of business before we know it this explains the mutiple store closures across the country. This is sad this used to be our favorite store to go to. We were in Huntsville, AL.

PLEASE PROVIDE ADDITIONAL TRAINING FOR THE EMPLOYEES/MANAGEMENT @ JCPENNEY GREENVILLE, MS!!!!! THEY NEED TO LEARN TO GO TO THE JCP.COM WEBSITE.. THEN TRACK YOUR ORDER… PUT IN THE CUSTOMERS INFORMATION..IN ORDER TO PROCESS RETURNS…ETC… First and foremost the line was too long at the main entrance near lingerie. Second, I tried to avoid the line by going to a register near jewelry by the plus size section but the old lady said she doesn’t return online purchases they can only be returned at the register I just left with the long line. Keep in mind she didn’t have any customers and she didn’t attempt to pull any from the other counter to bring down the line. Third, after waiting in line for more than 15 minutes I get to the salesperson everything thing is fine until she tries to process my last return, she ask the lady behind her to help. I ask for a manager and she tells me that the lady is a (mgr). The lady (mgr) takes too long to respond so I ask her to call for another mgr and she tells me that this lady is the only one that can resolve this issue. The mgr finally turns around and says It’s been over 90 days without keying anything in or looking at the register. So long story short the incompetent b*t*h doesn’t know what she’s talking about and needs more training. I had to leave w/o returning the item. Get it together JCP Greenville MS!!!!

I made a purchase of two rugs on line from jc penney via PayPal on 10/24. The money was withdrawn out shall I day “pending”, thereof like every single other on line transaction I assumed all was good. I wake up yesterday, check my bank any and I’m overdrawn by over $200 because jc penney also charged me individually for each rug again on 10/28, the day they delivered it without refunding the original pending amount I already had from 10/24….thus I pd double for two days. This resulted in 7 overdraft so far and when I spent three hours on the phone with various customer service reps, and many different stories of why and whose fault, jc penney is blaming PayPal. I will be contacting corporate and BUYER BEWARE IF YOU BUY ON LINE!!!!!!

On Saturday, October 24, 2015 I had an 8am hair appointment with the JCP salon at 3000 Dunn Ave. #25 in Jacksonville FL. Ten minutes to 8am my stylist attempted to gain access by ringing the bell provided as well as calling the necessary numbers to contact those in charge of opening the doors at 8am. Ms. Eleanor finally answered at 8:10am and said she will be downstairs in two minutes. I recognized Ms. Eleanor from my other 8am appointments in which she failed to open the doors on time. She offered no apologies for her tardiness. When I expressed concern for the salon opening time she offered this response…when I am in the money room opening the door is not a priority. I replied, so the customer does not come first? It is my belief that if a business advertise an opening at a certain time then that business should have it’s doors open at that time regardless of bells, phone, or money room responsibilities. It is my opinion that money room responsibilities should be handled prior to the 8am open time. The staff at this store need a refresher course in customer service. It needs to be clearly understood that this is not the first time I had to wait for the store to be opened on time. It needs to be clearly understood that I am not the only customer who had to wait past opening time. It needs to be clearly understood that money room responsibilities are a direct result of having paying customers like myself bringing our business and referral business to that particular location which allow you, Ms. Eleanor, to remain employed.

I am extremely pissed, i ordered a dress online & not even 8min later after ordering I get an email saying it was unavailable. How could they possibly have my card details in the system when there wasn’t even a damn dress available in the inventory!! then later on I checked in one of my local stores and found the dress. I put it oh hold and came to pick it up the next day. Then they LOST my damn hold!! They didn’t even offer to help me find it. Then I came back the next day to ask again about the dress and still it was no where to be found, then I peeked around and found it. How could they possibly lose my dress like that? I’m dissapointed. Not only was the customer service terrible, the online system sucks just as much. However the misery doesn’t even stop there, because after I found the dress and purchased it. The next morning they charged my card for the online order that they say wasn’t even available! I called customer service and was livid!!! They went on to say that it only charged my card when it ships but apparently the charge was a mistake. What in the hell is this foolery? Seriously, this company and it’s employees are terrible! Absolutely terrible.

I went to JCPenny yesterday to get two vests on sale for $19.99 each.They were in sale paper for buy one get one free but the cashier said they weren’t on the sale paper and they didn’t have any sale papers in the store so I came back to Glasgow and hunted my sale paper.Went bac to Bowling Green this morning took my paper with me and the manager said they had the wrong price on them and we would have to pay $42.00for two instead of $19.99 for two.These were to be store busters.The sign for $19.99 was gone.This is false advertising.Thats why JCPenny is losing customers.I drove approximately 160 miles in two days just to shop at Pennys but not again.Unsatisfied customer.

2 days ago I went into the jcp salon in mn where their master stylist choped my hair off . I had a picture that I went through with the stylist and told her that I did not want to lose any of my length she told me that she wasn’t going to wash my hair because she wanted to make sure that she didn’t cut too much off so she misted instead. We combed my hair out and I showed her the exact amount that I wanted cut off and told her no more than an inch at max! I already had existing long layers in my hair and told her that I wanted no hair anywhere near my shoulders . She knew I was nervous and tells me as she makes the first cut “now don’t freak out ” and chops off over 3inches of my hair in one cut ! I now hair hair up to my shoulders its uneven and she chopped the top of it so now my hair is constantly in my eyes . I have naturally wavy hair and I have an afro when it dries because its so short. With no exaggeration it will now take my hair a year and a half to two years to grow back to the length it was . I was devastated I got into my car and cried. I don’t know how someone with so much experience could do something like this . when I called to speak to the salon manager she tried to make it seem like it wasn’t a big deal . they offered to have the same stylist re cut my hair ! Are you kidding ! You want her to cut more of my hair off ! Obviously they do not care .I told the salon manager that I wanted extentions put in because literally I am in tears every time I look in the mirror I cry. My hair was very important to me. I am so dissapointed. Why wouldn’t you try to fix your mistake ?

I have been a loyal customer for over 40 years. On Labor day weekend, after tirelessly searching the web looking to find some furniture for my home, I chose and ordered a leather sofa from your website. I was extremely happy with my choice and price from your store . Then on Tuesday after Labor day, I was contacted by your colleague and I was informed that the sofa was sold out and would no longer be available. Needless to say I couldn’t go back to searching other websites , since the Labor Sales were over.
Then October 4th I was shopping again on your web site and discovered the same sofa (leather possibilities Roll-Arm 82″ Bisque Color) was available for $1599.00 but the exact same sofa I previously ordered on clearance for $748.50 was not? Thank you for $25.00 gift certificate I received on Sept 9th. This issue has been bothering me for several days. I feel very sadden and angry that you have dishonored your sales event to a loyal customer.

Sincerely Catherine McCrann

I went in to JCPenney at Cross Creek Mall this morning trying to exchange a pair of Arizona jeans for the right size. They were a birthday present so I didn’t have a receipt. I got another pair in the right size and went to the register. The cashier told me without a receipt I would only get a $10.50 credit and would have to pay the rest. I told her I just wanted an even exchange for the right size. She said she couldn’t do that without a receipt. Never have I had this problem with your store before. I have 3 kids and shop at JCPenney regularly. I asked for a manager. I went upstairs to the managers office and when she came out I couldn’t believe how unprofessional she was. First of all she had on blue jeans, sneakers, and a sweatshirt. All of the other employees were dressed up and I would think being a manager those standards would apply to her too. After I explained my situation to her she said without a receipt she couldn’t even verify that I bought the jeans? I have never found jeans in your store for $10.00. She said the cashier did the right thing and that if I could find the receipt she wouldn’t have any problem exchanging them for me. I don’t think that I should have to go back and ask the person that bought me the jeans for the receipt just so I can exchange them for the right size. I could understand if I just wanted money back or something else entirely but for the very same product I shouldn’t have to have a receipt. In my opinion this isn’t very good customer service. I might just need to find somewhere else to shop besides JCPenney


Kat October 2, 2015 at 5:10 pm

I have been with JCP since 1985 and now since they sent a new card, I lost my stability on my credit report for old cards. I am so disappointed that JCP didn’t take that in consideration before they go into new cards. I no longer want to be involved with JCP anymore. Sorry JCP, you really screwed me over!!


Debbie October 2, 2015 at 5:10 pm

I will never shop at the store in Louisville Ky again you have one of the the worst managers I have ever meet. I believe here name is LeeAnn you need to do something about her.


Carol October 1, 2015 at 1:57 pm

I am just your average everyday consumer who has always loved Penney’s. I tried to find other contact information but this isn’t really a standard customer service issue. I do hope that this will get into the correct hands and that maybe someone starts taking notice. My problem is that I can no longer find normal clothes at your store.
As for me I am 48 years old and just wants simple comfortable clothes, not cut off jeans or shirts with slogans or sequins. I need clothes that look nice but are simple and comfortable.
A real nuisance for me is that my 11 year old daughter needed new clothes for school. Typical everyday problem for most families in America. Maybe your buyers are not aware that schools have dress codes? I feel I can say this because I have recently moved from the northeast to the southeast and still the same dress codes in the schools. No cutoffs, no showing midriffs, no deep v-necks, no tanks, and shorts need to be mid-thigh or below. The pants for girls can not be skin tight or made of spandex.
So yoga pants are out. Have you shopped in your own store for this? I am not talking about private schools, they have it easy – uniforms, but everyday ordinary public schools. Please talk to the buyers and bring back everyday clothing.

Why is returning something so difficult?
I shop in other stores and without receipts I’m still able to do my return.
Today I went to return 4 items, I was succesfull at only returning 1. The associate called the manager on duty Maria Morgan (Miami international) 4 times before she was able to come down and speak to me. I understand that your policy is 45 days but I travels and sometimes I don’t have time to return things on time.
I guess I can’t shop at Jcpenney because of the restrictions and associate service.

My boyfriend and i shopped online for a Birthday gift for myself. He found a pair of earrings he really liked. I am already at platinum status and get all the discounts and deals. So we go into this store wanting to get my boyfriend a jcp card. Problem number one. The girl asks him to enter in his net pay. First off it should be gross. so that right there lowered the amount. the earrings he wanted to get were around 667.00 with a lifetime warranty. Now please keep in mind he has the caSH FOR THESE EARRINGS HOWEVER, CASH ISNT GOOD ENOUGH. In order for him to get the discounts he has to open an account. He makes 80,000.00 a year. So they approve his credit with a limit of 367.00. So we say ok. can we pay the rest in cash…… guess what No you cant. But, he goes ahead and pays 600.00 on the account since it was in the system so they wouldnt worry it would be paid. So anyways the girl sends it through and says oh they approved it anyway. then she hurries off not to be seen again. then I receive an email stating there there was a problem with his order. I cant get ahold of anybody. finally i get through someone tells me his credit limit isnt high enough. So i try it again except i removed the lifetime warranty of 125.00. later that day it to was declined. I call back. Well yes maam he has a 600.00 credit to his account but his credit limit isnt enough. what the HELL!!!!! Isnt that stealing. All he wanted was to get a pair of earrings for his girlfriend. You just cant take his money and send his merchandise. We are so angry and pissed off he cancelled his account and his money had better be returned with 5-15 days or i can guarentee you suit will be filed. I too will pay off my bill and i will not purchase another item from jcp nor will my family or friends if this is not made right. Two very PISSED OFF CUSTOMERS!!!!!!!

What happened to the customer is always right? I purchased a custom top of the line alabaster leather sofa/chaise on 7/25/2015 at store 19596. My order number is 4109816 the amount was a sell price of $3464.45. I was excited. The sofa was delivered on 9/12/2015. To my surprise instead of a chaise that should have been delivered, I received a sofa and a corner piece that would have been used to connect a two-piece sectional.

I spoke with a phone representative who was very helpful. I was able to keep the sofa and she advised me that I needed to go back to my store and have the representative to correct the mistake. I thought that it would be a simple request, but it was not.

An entire week past before my sales representative (VP) 708, contacted me. When he did he was no help at all. He told me that what they delivered was correct and that three warehouse manager agreed and that the delivery staff and me were incorrect. I ask him if that made sense that I would purchase and wait all this time to lie. He told me that it was nothing that he could do, and that if he were to order the item again I would get the same thing.

I was flabbergasted! I couldn’t believe that he would say something like that. Then he said that the only thing that he could offer was for them to pick up the sofa and issue a credit to my JC Penny account. Not only is this unprofessional, he flat out refused to fix the problem. I have to say my uncle worked for JC Penny furniture in the 70s in downtown San Francisco and he was a true professional. His customer never left the store unhappy.

I know that this is not going to be fixed to my satisfaction, and personally I no longer want the situation repaired. I just want to hear from the delivery company so that they may pick up JC Penny furniture.

This could one of the major problems that Penny’s is having in staying open. Maybe it’s time for close your doors. One fact for sure is that I can purchase what I want anywhere, but I choose JC Penny.

I have been trying for approximately 9 months to get off JCP mailing list. Problem-1st name on the flyer is not mine, but last name is. I have been told numerous times it has been removed. Last phone call the rep was rude by cutting me off as I spoke. When I asked for a Supervisor she wouldn’t do it, saying that person will only repeat what she said. I raised my voice & firmly told her the reason was due to her cutting me off so rudely. She became very quiet. I had to ask if she was still there. When she replied, I just hung up on her with no resolution. How hard is your system that removing this name is turning into multiple calls with the promise it has been done, it has been removed, it’s because of someone else’s fault not going into the right screen?

Recently, I accidentally missed a payment on my JC Penney Credit Card. I was traveling quite a bit during the month of July and simply overlooked it. Almost immediately, I began receiving phone calls from Synchrony Bank regarding the account, often up to three times per day. Since I’d only missed the one payment, I determined at that point to pay the amount on the statement by the next due date to bring my account up to date.
I called Synchrony and the automated system indicated that I needed to pay $225.00, due by the 23rd of August. I paid this electronically via my bank on 20th August. However, I was still receiving phone calls (again, twice per day). Investigating further, it seems that I owed an additional $37 to bring my account up to date, which was not reflected in my statement amount—or I certainly would have paid it at the time.
On 13th September, I called customer service and paid the $37 via the phone. I also registered my displeasure at the treatment I have received, given that I have been a JC Penney Credit Card customer since 1988 and pay my bills regularly. A simple letter or email, notifying me of the oversight at the time, would have rectified the entire situation easily, collegially, and with a minimum of inconvenience to your company and to me. Instead, I was treated like a deadbeat customer with what amounts to harassment.
For one missed payment. One.
At this time, I am considering transferring the balance of my JC Penney Credit Card to another card—at a lower interest rate, I might add—and closing my JC Penney account. If this is how your company treats its long-term customers, there is little incentive to continue giving my business to it.

I bought a dining set D Poss counter height w/four upholstered chairs 4/28. It was delivered in May. July 6th one of the foot rests snapped in two. I had to call JCPenney customer service twice before they sent out a technician. Technician came discovered the chair broke because the delivery company didn’t put any screws in the chairs. He told him he would bring a replacement part in two weeks. I haven’t seen him since. That was over a month ago. My husband has made several unsuccessful attempts to contact the technician directly. I called JCPenney customer service service back where I spoke to the rudest rep named Jamal and supervisor named Veronica. I was told all they could do was email the repair technician. I asked for a time frame for a return call and that’s when rep and supervisor became rude telling me that emails are answered in order and they would get to mine when they got to it. So now I’ve been without a chair for two months. The delivery company, service technician and customer service have all failed me. I feel like no one at JCPenney is willing to help. I would like to know where to go from here. Please text me at the email address above.

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE?! I had to call and let them know that some one got my BANK card information and charged 330 dollars at sephora and 230 at the jcpenny itself/per my when I call in I 1). Am talking to some lady WHO DOESN’T speak very good english 2). Kept telling me they couldn’t help me, i would have to call mastercard. I repeatedly told her that it is a BANK debit card and she just kept repeating the same stuff over and over. She then went on a spiel about getting a jcpenny card. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I am usually a customer.. not any more. Why would Iwant anything to do with a company that does absolutely nothing?

Jessi September 3, 2015 at 11:14 pm

Good Evening,

I am writing this to share my experience at the JCPenny in Southlands mall in Aurora Colorado. Each time I go to this store, the supervisor Mario gives me and my whole family trouble. He is just plain rude and thinks very high of himself. He had no leadership skills and no politeness at all. Every time we go to this JCPenny he is extremely rude and should not be a part of the management because he has no manners or ethical behaviors. I stopped going to this JCPenny now and hope that he will quit thinking so highly of himself because he is really unprofessional and does not know a single way of how to handle customers.



Jennifer R August 30, 2015 at 10:14 am

I will never shop JC Penny again and am urging everyone else to do the same. I have contacted JCP several times about an issue and no one has gotten back to me. After several bad customer service experiences in the same store I have even called about receiving two left shoes!! I purchased a pair of shoes for my son, I didn’t check to see if they were different sides and neither did the cashier. I went back a few weeks later and she tried to give me $5 for the pair because I didn’t have the receipt and she wouldn’t look it up. I paid $25 for the shoes. I said “no” could you find the correct shoe. She could not find anything she said then had someone else wait on me to take a personal call!!!! Seriously! Needless to say I’m taking my business elsewhere and am stuck with two left shoes.

JC Penney !!!!!!!! What’s going on ? Most of the clothing looks awful. Styles, shapes and prints are bad.


Mary Kellr August 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm

I was an associate back in the 90s, and quit because of my second child. I later became a hairstylist. I decided to go back to Penney’s and apply in the Salon. I had a very good interview with the Salon Manager, but was told I had to have a “try-out”. When I went for the “try-out” the lady that conducted it was so unprofessional in her appearance and she was disorganized and couldn’t come up with the correct words to explain what she needed to tell us do. We were to build something with some child building blocks. Then we were to conduct a focus group. It was the biggest waist of 2 1/2 hours that I have ever had to spend. She then took me into a separate room and was told we won’t be hiring you now, that’s why I brought you back first. I was so shocked that I just left. Penney’s used to be a nice place to work and shop but not now. I will never step a foot in that store again!

This is the Amarillo, Texas store.

What ever happened to customer service?! JC Penney’s customer service is the worst!!! Their associates are rude in every store and it starts with management and inflexible policies and procedures. They barely greet you or say thank you. It is if you are putting them out…REALLY!
I purchase a dining set on June 27, 2015 from their home store and was asked by the sales associate to pick my delivery date. I wanted to item for July 4th because I had family coming to town, and I was told it could be delivered on July 2nd and that I would get a call the night before with delivery time. Of course, no call on July 1st and I had already taken the day off for the delivery on July 2nd. I called customer service to find out between what times would my furniture be delivered and I was told “that’s not your delivery date, that’s the date that your item would be shipped and then the delivery company would call you for the delivery date.” Now, I’m HOTTTTT! I told customer service to cancel my order and I’ll just purchase something locally. The agent apologized and said, if you keep this item, we’ll compensate you. I asked, how much? And then she said that they would let me know once the item was confirmed delivered.
Needless to say, the dining set was delivered for another two…I repeat, two weeks. I had spoke to customer service several times and they were absolutely no help! Once my item was delivered, I called customer service for compensation and got the run round…transferred around and of course, never received ANY compensation.
I have been a loyal customer with JCP for over thirty (30) years. In spite of the changes in their CEO and diminishing quality of merchandise, I’ve tried to remain loyal so they would not have to close like many other major department stores…
BUT, not any longer…I am done! Today, I went to the same home store to exchange a bathroom soap dispenser without the receipt and was treated like a criminal. I was plain to see that the nasal was broken and I received the worst customer service. I asked for the manager, “S”, we’ll call her, and she was worse then the sales associate. I WILL NEVER SHOP THERE AGAIN…AND JC PENNEY’S HAS LOST A VALUE CUSTOMER FOR OVER 30 YEARS. I see why this company is in so much trouble. TRAIN YOUR MANAGERS AND ASSOCIATES TO TREAT EVERYONE EQUAL…MONEY IS GREEN, NOT WHITE, BLACK OR BROWN.


D. Feier August 24, 2015 at 5:09 am

RE:JCP insiders- surveys are geared towards teenagers, and young women, clothing is flimsy, see thru and and not for older women . Older women are the ones with money to shop.You are ignoring these customers. We want attractive, stylish, age appropriate clothing.
Your moderators send generic emails all about how general your clothing surveys are.Actually my 4 year old granddaughter could handle grouping your items. I unsubscribed.You are loosing me as a customer because of the moderators uncaring attitude. I’m sure this does not matter to’s only one customer.I used to spend quite a bit
of money at Penney’s. It will go elsewhere now.


over heater customer August 20, 2015 at 3:50 am

Every time I shop at JC Penney’s in Coon Rapids , MN. Your store is so hot I sweat . Its summer time and if your want people to spend money in your store , you should lower your thermostat. I have spoke to different employees about this matter . They have said they hear many complaints and they still don’t change the temp in there. I would much rather shop at Kohls then walk out halfway through shopping to go home and shower because of all the slimy sweat from shopping in your store. After reading several of these comments , I see you have other stores with similar problems. If this is a corporate decision to set thermostat that high , you are making a huge mistake.


Mary Defever August 17, 2015 at 3:45 pm

How would you like to shop in a store with no air conditioning when it is 118 degrees
outside. The JCP’s store in Bullhead City has been without A/C for several days now.
I love your sales but who wants to shop in a store with no A/C. I do not know how the
employees who stay there for several hours can stand it. WHY DON’T YOU GET IT


Mise pasciak August 15, 2015 at 10:09 pm

Your Conroe Texas store is violating Texas state law by allowing Ericka to cut clients hair with a open razor with no Gaurd.There is a huge risk of the public getting Aids and or Hepititis C by exposing them to s used razor over and over on every male client.The manager knows this and does nothing and even the store manager Wesley gets his hair cut by her with a open razor.She does not have a barber license.


Mise pasciak August 15, 2015 at 10:04 pm

Also you need Cameras in your Salon .Irma had Two color syncs in her clear bag.Visablly visible yesterday on your security cameras.Your Conroe salon is being stole from by your Master stylists.Unless you do away with retaliation no one will speak up.


Disappointed August 15, 2015 at 8:59 pm

I work at JC Penney at Owings Mills Mall in Maryland. I am so disappointed in how things are managed. It’s not the way it used to be. The new managers are not qualified to do the job effectively. The new store manager does not dress professionally and she chews gum while she conducts the morning meetings. Some of the staff wear flip flops and do not dress according to jcp standards. It has definitely gone downhill. The evening people work after 11 pm when they are clearly scheduled until 10 or before and they are told they have to stay. I hope no one reports them to the Labor Board. Employees have children to pick up, catch the bus and some work early the next morning. There is no compassion or consideration for the employees. The store needs more help. It is my hope that JC Penney sends someone to the store that will bring us back to the quality store we once were.


Mise pasciak August 15, 2015 at 7:06 pm

I worked in the Salon in Conroe,Texas.I was told by a coworker (Trina) that I had an unfair advantage to build clients because I was white.Because of this I was unfairly targeted with a hostile work environment so I quit. This salon needs a manager that is there full time not two days a week.These people that work there do their own thing and treat customers terrible.Often ignoring them .They have Salons in their homes and take Jcpennys customers to their house.They only work there for the insurance.They shop in the store even when they are on the clock and don’t pay for their product charges or clock out when they get their hair done.Anyone new is treated horrible and forced to quit because of the hostile work environment.The scheduling with the computer system is insufficient and customers wait too long to scheduals appointments.A receptionist is needed.This is a prejudice place to work and the pay isn’t worth the trouble.This is the most unprofessional Salon I have ever worked for and I’ve done hair twenty six years.Jcpenny needs to get out of the Salon business and stick to selling clothes.They probably only have a Salon because they sell a lot of retail which I’ve seen retail deverters come in and buy large quantities of Paul Mitchell and Redlkin to break up packages to sell diverted product.They have no business in the Hair Industry.


Suzan Baker August 10, 2015 at 2:51 pm

There is no customer care on line or at the JC Penney store at Dadeland Mall, Miami, FL.
The “Customer Care’ line is always busy and the dolts on that line left me on hold for over an hour TWICE. They owe me a small credit of about $10 but I can’t find out the exact amount nor do I believe that JC Penney will send me a check instead of returning to a credit card. With any question you ask at the Corporate number they transfer you to Customer Care that has a wait time of 45+ MINUTES, then that put you on hold for 60+ minutes. Great company you got here, and former customer you have in me.


Patty August 9, 2015 at 10:20 am

On August 8th I visited the JCPenney store in LaCrosse WI where I had the pleasure of meeting a “Prince”. I don’t recall ever having dealt with an employee there that wasn’t helpful or polite but this young man completely made my day with just one sentence he said to me. I asked another employee for his name and she said Prince. I responded “How fitting! “. And even when she said his name I saw the genuine smile and respect she had for him as a coworker. If he has this kind of impact on 2 women that are from different generations then this young man is a keeper. I would guess Prince puts a smile on every shoppers face when they have the pleasure of talking to him. KUDOS JCPENNEY LaCrosse store for hiring him. Now I hope JCPENNEY LaCrosse recognizes him for his incredible customer service. He does more than return clothing to their place. He gives people a reason to smile and feel so wonderful even after their brief encounter with him. Thank You Prince for making my day so much more brighter!


Annoyed August 8, 2015 at 9:17 am

I’ve worked for the company for a little over a year now and we have recently got a new store manager. SHE IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST! Since she started working in our store everything has gone down hill. It really says something about management when an entire department has started to quit! She treats us like we don’t matter and she harasses us when people have to call out. And on top of management stressing out the employees, the customers are no better! Many of the people who shop in my store are very rude and get angry when you try to explain to them that they can’t combine their coupons or that the item that they want is no longer in stock. I should not be getting screamed at over things that I have no control over. Then when we call a manger down the customer turns heir whole attitude around! It is an overall stressful environment and a crappy place to work especially if your store manager is a prick.


M. Fox August 7, 2015 at 3:31 pm

I have been shopping at JC Penny’s at the Richmond Mall in Cleveland Ohio since the mall opened in 1968. The quality of service along with the environment at this store has become horrible in the past few years. The staff is rude, disinterested and lazy, the dressing rooms are dirty and overall there is lack of respect for the customer. However, TODAY, I was in and every single person there was going overboard to ensure customer satisfaction. The dressing rooms were cleaner, the staff was smiling, helpful and bent over backwards for everyone who walked in. I knew something had to be going on and found out that the district manager and his staff were there, gee what a surprise. I called to talk to the district manager but of course he was not available, so I told the manager on duty how great everyone was today and that it would be nice if it would stay that way every day. Of course it won’t. Most of my friends and family stopped shopping there long ago because of how they are treated. Honestly this location needs to close down unless the district manager plans on visiting every day.


Anibal August 4, 2015 at 10:53 pm

Let me start of with ME no longer EVER shopping at JCPenney!!!!Let me start with all the drama and unprofessionalism that this chain of stores has.

I purchased an engagement ring and i sent it out for sizing, and came back 2 weeks after saying it couldnt be sized.
So i re purchased another one sent it out for sizing and comes back again 2 weeks after without being sized.
Why would they keep it 2 weeks without them doing anything?????
All my scheduled plans on certain dates were completely ruined because of miscommunication
(I still dont have my ring and its been 3 months almost since my first purchase!!!!!!! Reallly???? Ridicolous!!!!
To top it all off
they said they can not size the ring based on the structure of the ring.
why couldnt they inform me that the ring couldnt be sized to a specific size…why not inform your clients of something sooooooo important, it is not just a regular ring its an ENGAGEMENT RING!
This ring by the way is not a $100 ring it was over 2K.
so now who knows who is sizing it, apparently its a private jeweler.

But when it came to them selling it to me and charging me for it , they didnt hesitate for 1 second

I AM EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED,PIST, UPSET AND MORE THAN ANYTHING MY FIANCEE IS STILL WAITING FOR IT.. lets see how long they take now and by the way everytime I call to find out the progress they give me the run around.



Paula August 4, 2015 at 2:06 pm

I am trying to apply for an interior design job in Warwick, RI, but am unable to continue due to their SS# requirement. Having owned a business myself, I KNOW this is not required until the person actually has accepted the job. With all the security issues of today, it makes no sense to put out more information than necessary. I tried to find information online to phone someone, but it’s a nightmare trying to get through. I guess I’ll have to move on to another job. Too bad.


Carol August 12, 2015 at 7:53 am

Nowadays you have to put down your number as soon as possible. Too many people are faking the SS# and Penny’s isn’t the only store that is doing so; maybe in the corporate world they would wait until you are hired to get that number but not in the retail world where people come and go at a rapid rate of speed. Nobody seems to stay long in their jobs anymore and the corporation has to cover themselves that they are not hiring illegal people or the government will fine them.


Mike Thompson July 24, 2015 at 2:27 pm

I tried 3 times to search for items to purchase and the site stalled to load ads. I finally got to click on some purchases and when I went to sizes again a loading stall for ads. I went back to the order form and up popped a feed back form. Over and over pop ups. I gave up trying to order and closed off J..C..Penney. But after I did I found this site to let the company know why they lost a potential $400.00 order.
I purchased from catalogs for years from Penny’s and spent a good amount of money. 3 bedroom sets (over $1,800.00, 2 living room sets $1,000+ each, 14 window blinds and curtains (over $2,000), countless clothing purchases plus other items. Then the catalog stopped and I got local store offers. Since I am disabled visiting a store is not an option. So as a last resort I tried to order off the net. But that too failed to take my orders. I f Penny’s wants to stay in business, they should go back to valuing customers and go back to catalogs. Oh! And by the way fire the web site manager who creates these pop-ups.


Joan Herrmann July 22, 2015 at 10:19 pm

The computers in the Hair Salon at JCP that were recently replaced are for the birds. I have been a regular customer at the salon for several years. Accurate scheduling seems to be difficult. I have a set time every Friday each week to get my hair done. At times I have been scheduled for a different time than what it should be. A difference at times by a half an hour to an hour. Of course I have learned to pay attention on the receipt as to the time they indicate. I am told that there isn’t enough line space to put it down properly. I called today to let them know the receipt says 1:30 and it should be at 1:00. I was told by the hairdresser that if she tells me she will see me the following week at 1:00, that’s the time to be there. In talking with a few of the clients there, they report the same thing. What the heck kind of system is this anyway? Also, for the past few yrs. when the receptionist would call to confirm my appt. at times it was at the wrong time and I had to correct them. I thought once the new computers were installed and working, this would clear up the problem. Seems like it has gotten worse. I feel a new system would make it easier to be more accurate for all concerned – the employees & service to the clients. Would appreciate if someone would look into this and resolve this problem quickly. Thank you.


Concerned Person July 19, 2015 at 2:00 pm

I am a concerned person for all shoppers. The store in Burleson, Texas is very hot. Many customers leave because of it and I hear employees complain aboout it also. There has been times I havee seen customers leave their things just anywhere and leave saying they will not be back because they are uncomfortable in the hot store. I have also heard that there have been A/C units broke and not fixed, you need to understand happy customers buy things hot misreable do not. You should not make your employees work in it either because it is not good for them. Tell your store manager to get it fixed….


Diane July 18, 2015 at 5:35 pm

Used to shop at Penneys all the time when store carried a large line of Liz Claiborne and Jones of New York. Quality of items gone downhill.


Jennifer July 17, 2015 at 1:58 am

Stopped in your South Hill Mall location in Puyallup , Wa this evening , and noticed your jewelry department was having a sale going on . I browsed the jewelry department while a lady was behind one of the counters counting a register or something . I walked around and stopped here and there and she never looked up once . Finally I stopped in front of one of the jewelry cases and still no acknowledgement . Then I waited some more and even jiggled my keys a little as I put them in my purse and watched her walk from behind one counter to the one behind me with still no acknowledgement . It was as if I didn’t exist . She then began to fumble with something behind the other counter which was literally 3 ft from me and not even a look in my direction . Finally I just turned and walked away . Yes I could’ve said “Excuse me” or something to that effect , however being the customer I feel some sort of acknowledgement from her would’ve been appropriate . Thank you for your time .


florinda archie July 12, 2015 at 3:28 pm

I’m not loving the fact that I get harassed to obtain a jc penny card. I shop at jcpenney in Garden city New York all the time and I get approached all the time. I over heard a manager telling an employee she can fire him if he doesn’t get card because he’s bring down metrics……REALLY!!!!! Is that part of the Job description? Becarful of being sued!!


Amy Dugas July 8, 2015 at 11:30 pm

Frustrated enough July 21, 2015 at 5:42 pm

Oh my gosh our store manager is the same way she yells at us in front of customers and plain out degrades us


Frustrated enough July 8, 2015 at 5:45 pm

Our store is a wreck. Management sucks. We ask for help with go backs and we get laughed in the face. Store 1330 is a wreck!! Who keeps their employees until almost midnight!! Never have i seen this store as bad as it is now!


D Richardson July 5, 2015 at 6:49 pm

Bought the most beautiful comforter I have ever owned a little over a year ago. I don’t wash it due to the fact that I always use a flat sheet between me and the comforter and it is way too big and heavy for my washer. Well, I finally read the tag that said use a commercial washer with adequate space and wash in cold water. My daughter and I took it to the laundry mat around the corner, paid like nine dollars to wash it and the beautiful stitching is now all loose and tattered. I was so upset I almost cried at the laundry mat. I brought it home wet because I did not want any more damage and hung it over my laundry pole in my laundry room to dry. I want to use it again this winter but its just not going to be the same. I paid a little over a hundred dollars for this comforter and I got to tell you I am almost afraid to buy another from jcpenney.


candis July 3, 2015 at 5:20 pm

Had the very best experience with yall in the past 2 days due to 1 employee in particular…Alicia at the store at promanade mall in tulsa ok deserves a raise and a huge pat on the back. She has been so helpful and so precious to me…and others I saw her interact with. I’m in customer service myself and wish I had the patience and understanding she has had with me! You have definitely struck gold with her and I just hope she can be acknowledged for her amazing ways with people….


Ayshirah Prince July 1, 2015 at 12:18 pm

I am beyond posed right now. I have had 3 orders messed up by JCPenney. The first one they sent me the wrong size, I ordered a 6 tall and they sent me a 6 petite. Then when I returned it and got a refund I never received my refund. I waited more than 10 days to see if the refund would show up and it never did. I ended up having to go to the store again only to have them try to resend the refund. After a long wait I finally got my refund. The next order I had I ordered some uniform shirts for my son, he needed navy blue shirt. I placed an order for 4 navy blue shirts and instead of blue they sent all white shirt. I had to spend over an hour would be associate trying to reorder while my child nagged and was very upset because he was hungry and ready to go. The most recent order which I ordered on June 13th was a pair of shoes that they had in the store but Online they were $10 cheaper. The associate in the store refuse to give me the shoes right then and there for the online price, she said that I had to order them if I wanted the lower price. So I ordered them and used a coupon and my JCPenney rewards on these shoes. I went to the store to check to make sure they were there twice and both times they weren’t there. I went online and check the status this morning and it said that it was cancelled. I got absolutely no notification that my order was canceled. I hadn’t even gotten a refund. I called customer service and the woman said that I had to go back to the store. I went to the store and they couldn’t even find the order in their system they ended up calling back customer service only to have customer service order the shoes once again. I don’t understand why they couldn’t do that in the first place. I have made several unnecessary trips to JCPenney because of orders gone wrong. All three of these wrong orders are the only three orders that I placed in a 3 month span and every single one of them were wrong. I feel like I should be sending JCPenney a bill for gas and my time because of all of the unnecessary trip that I have had to make. I will never order anything from jcpenney online again. I was once an associate at this very same store years ago and the service has gone down tremendously.


Unhappy Employee June 23, 2015 at 11:54 am

As a current employee in JcPenny in jersey city i am highly unhappy. For one during this blazing heat of summer 2015 we do not have a working air conditioner. Even though this matter has been brought to the attention of the managers, nothing has been done about this problem. There has been workers to the store to fixed the air conditioner and they have been unsuccessful. Currently i am 7 1/2 months pregnant and i am forced to work under these poor conditions. It is too hot for the store to remain open during these times. Something needs to be done or i will seek further action. I have made a complaint to the power line and still nothing has been done. If something is to happen to me or my child due to the carelessness of JcPenny, they will be responsible.


Linda Huntley June 19, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Penney’s furniture support should be renamed “lack of support.” I purchased a leather couch and loveseat from Penney’s that was delivered May 20. To get through to their support line I had to get up at 6am because the wait at all normal times was longer than 20 minutes. WhenI finally did get through they told me an inspector would call and schedule and appointment. That appointment is June 30. This is an incredibly long wait and it is only the beginning.

Needless to say, I will never buy furniture at J.C. Penny’s ever again.


John June 17, 2015 at 12:55 pm

I have been a Penneys charge card holder since 1959. Back then, shopping was easy, you got what you paid for. Quality products were sold and you only had to purchase what you needed. Now you have to purchase two items to get a 50 percent discount, even if you only needed one item.That super deal, as Penneys would like you to think, really is the same as 25 percent off of the item you wanted. Before the big shift, and firing, I could shop at my local Penneys and the clerk, who had several years at my store, would give me the 25 percent savings for one item. She commented that if you only needed six pairs of the item, why would you need twelve just to get the ” buy one and get 50% off the second.” I really don’t feel that I’m alone in this feeling, no wonder Our JC Penney is having problems. Let the customers choose what and how many items they want to purchase.


Theresa June 15, 2015 at 3:31 pm

i am a faithful jcpenney shopper! I always pay my Bill on time and I am not shy about spending money! However I’m furious! I went to the salon at my local jcpenney store and was charged $32 for a trim…no wash, no style, no cut….she literally grazed my edges with her scissors. It took her 10 minutes! Why does that cost $32? I will NEVER be back!


Karen Howard June 8, 2015 at 3:58 pm

I have been a JC Penney customer for years. I have used the custom decorating services in our previous home, so I decided to contact JC Penney to purchase blinds for the kitchen in our new home. Well approximately 2 years ago we had several blinds installed in our kitchen (lots of windows). Since then, two blinds have broken. Last year, one broke and I had to pay a trip charge of $85.00 to have someone come to repair it. Unfortunately, it had to be removed and weeks later (and several calls to the store) I finally got the blind installed. The regular installers were unavailable, so the sales consultant installed it, but in the process tore the blind. A couple of weeks later, someone came to remove it for repair, and a few weeks after that, it was properly installed. Seeing how we have no children at home, my husband and I are the only ones operating the blinds, so I thought surely we would have no more problems with them breaking. Well, weeks ago, a second blind broke when I attempted to pull it down. When I contacted JC Penney to repair it, I was charged another $85. trip charge. At this point, I was pretty disgusted and just wanted the blind repaired. After calling JCPenney several times leaving messages with the custom decorating department, my sales consultant contacted me. She sent an installer to get the broken blind. I waited about 10 days to hear from someone concerning the status of the blind, but no one contacted me. When I finally reached someone at the decorating department, I was told they didn’t know where the blind was and would have my sales consultant contact me. Shortly after the call, I was contacted only to be told, they couldn’t locate it, but someone would call me back. That was about 5 days ago, so I called and left a message with the decorating department.
I don’t typically write complaints about services I receive, but this is completely unacceptable. To date, I still don’t have my blind or a phone call indicating when I will receive it.
I would greatly appreciate someone contacting me to resolve this situation. also, in the event another blind breaks, that I am not charged an $85.00 trip charge for a poorly designed product.

Thank you for your help.
Karen Howard, Douglasville, Georgia


Dan S. June 2, 2015 at 12:38 pm

I have shopped at Penneys for several years for my clothing needs. As a former employee the discount I received made it worth shopping there. However, I must say that your mens Big & Tall table is sadly pathetic. Why not just get rid of it completely and use that floor space for more cost effective purposes, like catering even further to the Short & Skinnies? Finding a T-shirt in size 6X is great – if I weighed 500 pounds. And a shirt that reaches my knees wouldn’t be so bad if my knees were closer to my ankles. I am just tall enough and just heavy enough that “normal” sizes don’t fit me yet not quite “Big & Tall” enough to shop in your clown clothes department.

How about making a B&T department that can actuall meet the needs of the B&T customer? A rack of beer-logo t-shirts, and a few random (and quite frankly, ugly) “dress” shirts does not constitute a B&T department. Try putting a little effort and thought into what you are presenting to ALL of your customers. Why make a B&T department that is ineffective, uses your valuable floor space, takes employee time, frustrates customers and drives them away? If you are going to use your floor space, do something with it to maximize your return on investment.

In case you havent noticed, American men (in general) are bigger and taller then they were 50 years ago.


L. Conell May 30, 2015 at 8:29 pm

I am familiar with the JcPenney in Pineville NC. This is the worst case of disrespect I’ve ever come across from a management team. Not all the managers are disrespectful but if they aren’t making sarcastic comments they are coming at you sideways with some deceitful comments. My HR manager and her snitch crew are the worst. If she doesn’t like you or you can’t get along with members of her clique she will manipulative by cutting your hours or “professionally” not speak to you,the whole store knows it they even joke about it by saying don’t get on her bad side you may not have any hours next week. Great way to handle issues hr manager. There are members of our management team who allowed to speak to associates with sinical remarks, do whatever they want like sit up hanging out in her office for hours. She tells employees to spy on employees she not a fan of and report back to her. I know because I’ve been told by some of those same employees that they were told to spy on even me and report back to her, but they confessed to me when they realized all I was doing was my job and they didn’t have a bad report to go to her with. And the so called neighborhood watch untitled supervisor, I am scared of her she tells you to do something and when you get confronted about it she recants her words or pins associates against each other in what she calls ” just knowing the right words to say. It is ridiculous the underlying manipulative ways that things are handled it this store. I am concerned for my store manager because I feel like if something was to go down the hr manager would let her take the fall. I think she’s much smarter than that though. But as far as the undermining goes every dog has its day

Just wanted to let JC Penney know that I am very disappointed that you do not carry plus size clothes in some of your stores. I never go to our JC Penney store in Connersville Indiana or Richmond Indiana for this reason. I used to be a very good customer. I would stop in about once a week to look at clothes. I have not been to the store in my town for about 2 years. If I want to buy plus size I have to travel 60 miles to an Indianapolis store. I will not order clothes without trying them on. I really like your clothes and have bought clothes when I’m in Indy but feel it is not right to not carry them in all your stores. Besides a Walmart and a Label Shopper store we have no where else to buy clothes. It’s very sad that you do not think plus size women are deserving to shop at some of your stores. Just wanted you to know you would have the customers if you would just carry the products we need and want. Thank you for your time.

The employee Nicki at the JCPenney in Winchester VA was very rude and unprofessional. Foul language amongst employees chatting on the floor doesn’t look good for business. She never acknowledged me and she was in the department. I’ll tell you I’m just appalled and wondering where the customer service went. Maybe re-evaluate your disgusting employees. Until then I won’t buy the nice clothes in your trashy store.

I was recently employed by JC Penney Co. in Flagstaff, AZ about April 29, 2015. I trained for a short time and was assigned to the Fine Jewelry Dept. It was stressed upon new workers in this dept. that this is the bread and butter of the company, and if we did not do well, we would be reassigned to a regular cash register dept. Kim Davis, the Human Resources Director, told this to us I was also told that before this happened, I would be given coaching to do a better job.

I was given just two weeks to get all the information and procedures down and we were let go alone on the floor. I was to take care of 4 counter areas with 3 registers and a main till to replenish money change for the other depts. We were to make sure we asked all customers if they wished to pay on their JCP credit card or apply for one. We also were to ask and ask and ask and to make sure that we had private information if the person wished to give it, so that we could call them to draw them back into the store to buy more items in Fine Jewelry. We were to discourage (psychologically) to nicely try to make people want to use their JCP card or open up a new JCP account, and not to use any other type of payment. We were also to push Care Plans to up the money amount customers would pay for their jewelry. We were also to know everything about the Fine Jewelry dept. operations and were not shown how to perform a customer credit application, or how to make sure we really knew the register’s full functions for returns/add care plans, etc. I was expected after only two weeks to know the opening and closing of the dept. explicitly, but I was not given a chance. When I would call over the radio or phone for a manger’s help, many times, no one would show up after several calls. So I would lose sales by not having any assistance when the cash register would freeze up.

Hilary, the manager of this store, pulled me in her office on 5/13/15 to let me know that they felt that I was overwhelmed by the Fine Jewelry dept. and that that had to let me go, after the human resource manager stated at least two times that I would be given a new area to work in where I felt would not be as difficult to manage as Fine Jewelry is, or else given coaching to help me where I was, I received none of this or any warnings that my job was coming to an end. It was also expressed that an associate had to get at least 2 approved applications a week because the store has to make money, but I was told I would be placed in another dept. if I was having trouble or given coaching to help me-which none of this was given to me. I was told this day, 5/13/15, that they don’t have any other openings to offer me, even though I found 4 job listings open for this particular store on line.

I explained my documented disability with a “cognitive delay”. I did not explain it before, as I was hoping to just get a regular cashier position, not a complex area such as Fine Jewelry, which is the hot spot to make money for the store. At the interview, I was asked if I would like to work in FJ and make calls to people, I said yes, as I did not know how complex the whole situation would be and extremely stressful. I asked if I could only work 20 hours a week, but the management told me that it would likely be 6 hours a day or 26 hours a week. I did now know how stressful it would be and how hard it is to catch on to an area where management comes up constantly to remind you to make more and more money or you will be moved.

Again, I explained to the Manager, Hilary, on 5/13/15, that I could work in this dept. until a new job came up, but they did not even want to do this considering I had a disability—money was their only motive, which I am finding out is what retail is more interested in. They did teach us at JC Penney, that the founder, James Cash Penney had the golden rule when he started the store, this is, and “to treat everyone as you would want to be treated.” I guess since I was only an employee that I must have been exempt from this treatment since I have a disability. They could have kept me on until a new position opened up and gave me a chance to really learn the system in a less challenging dept. So I was not treated the way they say to treat people. They are hypocrites in this sense and I feel that I was discriminated against. They told me they would try to “coach me” to try to help me do better in the FJ Dept. or else move me to another dept., which they never did and never gave me a chance, so I believe that they discriminated against me once they knew I had a disability and did not try to give me another chance to do a better job. Once they knew I had a disability and I asked to stay on until another job opened up, they did not want me around. I was not given a chance because they do not want a person with a mental disability on their hands. This is plain discrimination as I was not “coached” to do better, or even given a chance to do better after I explained my documented disability.

I filed a discrimination claim against them because they could have made an attempt to help me do better, and really learn the system with reasonable accommodation. They just wanted me out because I have a mental disability. This has been a documented since 2004 by AZ Vocational Rehabilitation Office in Flagstaff, and by my physician, Dr. Harold Figueroa.

I do not want to work with them, but I believe I should be given a monetary amount for discriminating against (me) and people with mental disabilities, who ask for help and are given false statements because it is convenient for them to get rid of disabled people who could not job well within less than two weeks, and only on 20 hours a week, and given false hope to have a job with the company.


Todd May 14, 2015 at 2:17 am

Man, I can really relate to the comments you made. I was employed by a Penny’s store this year, and told them about my disability, that has to do with my ability to function, but I can still handle a job–the right job where I am given some leeway to learn the job, and then I can do a great job! As soon as they knew about my problem, the managers would constantly be hovering around me and pointing out all the mistakes I was making. They did in fact tell me that they were going to give me “reasonable accommodation” for my disability that is also documented, but that was never realized. I am smart and I can do a good job, but not under the hovering eyes and snyed remarks I received daily from the managers. It was like they just could not wait to get rid of me. I was out within less than 2 weeks, so how could i learn anything. I may file an equal opportunity claim against them too. That is no way to treat a person with a disability who can do the job, it is against the law.

I sure hope you end up with a whopping sum of money, maybe that will teach this greedy, and indifferent, and uncaring, and neglectful company to treat all people with respect, not only just those with disabilities, but especially those with disabilities asking for a reasonable chance to do a job. You go girl. Teach them a lesson and get lots of money out of the greedy company. I am not shopping there either and I am telling everybody I know.


Todd May 18, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Todd, it is in one way nice to know that they are equal opportunity offenders of people with disabilities, and total hypocrites. This must come from the corporate offices, most places don’t want to have to deal with a disabled person because they will lose money, or they just don’t want to deal with them. As you said, this is against the law.

I filed the EEOC complaint the day they told me to leave. The manager (ha-Ha), got really excited when I told her that I had a disability and what it was. Like you, I can hold down a job, with the same type of reasonable accommodation. I guess two weeks is their time limit to deal with anyone. Back to the manager, she bust out with, “Well that is the first time I have heard of it (my disability)”. I did not want to tell them as I have been counseled by Disability counselors not to state what my disability is as they will usually find a reason to get rid of you. I guess she thought I was not telling the truth.

I know the feeling your felt. But I dis ask to be placed in a different area not so complex. They even said as I mentioned 20 times in my posting, that they said they would put me in another area if Fine Jewelry did not work. I trusted those people! You had it harder as they were constantly breathing down your neck, and that must have been horrible. You could probably not learn your job, because the stress of dealing with their surveillance was like a vulture ready to go in for the kill. I am so sorry you went through that. I was even suicidal after that and a police officer came to my home to do a welfare check. I guess since they have their jobs, they don’t need to practice what they preach about the Golden Rule Mr. James Cash Penny started. What a smear on his name.

I am not a money hungry person. As my mom jokingly says, I am not greedy, just needy.
It would be good to see something happen in a disciplinary manner for this store, but who knows, stores like this don’t give a rat’s behind about how they treat people and treating people nice just means their customers, not their staff too. They talk out of both side of their mouth, giving you the words you want to hear and then ripping off the customer and the staff.

I hope you are able to get a good job with people who will give you a chance and I pray you do as you sound like a responsible person who just wants to work to make a decent living and give to others.
Thanks for the support!

Hi, I was hoping that this letter would get you your buyer in the Home Department. I have written several letters to your stores online, chatted with your workers online also, of JCP online and called and talked to your cashiers, hoping that they would get the message to your buyers. There were so many changes in your products. I am looking for the Acrylic Thermal Blankets that you carried for years and years, they came in many colors and sizes. They were not expensive, I have looked and looked for several years for them, I have talked to many online people that also were looking for the same blanket that I am, I am not sure if you realized how many customers you have that want this blanket also. Its perfect weight and weave for year around cover. Please I beg of you to find this blanket and bring it back to your stores. Or could I have the buyer that you bought it from, probably from China ? Anyway please respond, I let me know if this gets to your buyers.
Sincerely, Palma Armstrong

On today I paid a visit to your Lewisville Texas location to purchase some items and while in the first department I made my purchase without any problem but when I went to second department, after paying for my purchase cashier was not able to supply me with a store receipt and since I’m a young black male I did not wait to take the risk of getting stopped by security and being ask to see my receipt and not be able to render him a receipt for my purchase and dealing with what could happen, so I waited, and waited, and waited, and then waited and then after over a 30 minute wait a person from another department handed me a two (2) page receipt for my purchase and since I was already late going back to work due to this issue, I ask if they could compensate for the issue that I had just experienced and was not compensated, this is the reason why I decided to mail you on this issue. I thought maybe at the least a $20.00 gift card to your store would be a professional business offer, but I guess I was wrong.
I will allow you to correct a wrong in this most pressing matter.
I do thank you in advance for your attention and resolve of this situation at hand.

My husband and I purchased our wedding rings at your Rolla Missouri store in Feburary 2015. His ring had to be sized so after waiting 2 weeks for it to come in we picked it up and while on our honeymoon 3 diamonds fell out. We took it back April 6th, it was finally return to the store the 17th of April, guess what overnight another diamond fell out. We promptly took it back the next day only to be told today May 4 that it won’t be back for and 5/7 days. Seriously?? Where is the customer service on junk jewelry? I’m so mad! This is stupid! My new husband can’t wear his wedding band because it’s in the repair shop for the last month. We trusted your company and feel ripped off. Won’t buy another piece of jewelry from you again!

I am very disappointed in the new arrangement that you have with Sephora. I received a Sephora Gift Card for my birthday and went to the Palm Beach Gardens Mall store to spend it, only to be told that I had to take it to a JC Penney store. The nearest Penney’s is north of my home. So, the next Saturday I traveled there to find that the Sephora store had not opened yet. I made ANOTHER trip this past Sunday with my list and nothing, I repeat, nothing I needed was in that Sephora store. So here’s my suggestion: a Sephora card should be honored at any Sephora store. I have sent a similar email to Sephora. This was poor planning on someone’s part.

Good morning I am a JCP shopper here in benton harbor michigan. This is a complaint about rude management in this store. I was shopping on 5/03/15 and ran across a friend that works there we were having a short conversation and all of a sudden a sales floor manager I am assuming by the name of Julie appears very rudely an unprofessional “hey Archie are you working or on the clock ” Archie replies yes why slowly walking to her. Julie replies at all times yelling in a nasty tone because there’s a guy doing suspicious activity over there as she points in his direction. Now I’m not sure how JCP train, select, or observe their managers but how Ms. Julie handled the situation she could have never been on my team nor could I have ever worked for her. I have managed for years if you treat your workers right you would get outstanding results from them. If you try to humiliate or belittle them you will receive trashy results. Now as I’m the shopper she never nowledge me as she approach rudely and shared information that I didn’t need to know. The respectable way was to say excuse me Archie can I talk with you.

JC Penny’s policy on defective mattress sucks the big one. We bought a sealy posture pedis king size mattress on 7-5-2013. I have had numerous major back surgeries over the last 20 years, I thought this would be a good mattress. But by February 14 2014 the mattress had broken down and was inspected by the inspector. So we had it replaced thinking that it was just a bad mattress. But by December this mattress was broken down again. We called the furniture repair line again, they took the info and said some will call to set up an inspection. We call the furniture repair line numerous time to set up an appointment and nothing was done, we had to get upset on the phone for them to set an inspection. So we had appointment about 4 weeks away because the inspector is only in our area on Tuesdays. On the day of the inspection, after we took everything off our bed, we get a phone call saying they will not be able to make the appointment. So we call the furniture repair line again for an inspection appointment finally got an inspector to show up in March, he said the mattress and box springs are bad. So we call the furniture repair line again, they said they have replaced it already but we have the choice of a credit or replacement of the mattress. So we went down to the store and looked at mattresses, and found out that there was the same mattress but firmer. We were told that we would have to buy it first, then be credited for after the exchange. I don’t understand why can’t you deliver the new firmer mattress at the same time of picking up the old one. We explained that we charged it on the JC Penny card and there is not enough credit to do that. We were told that’s not our problem. So we said do we call and get a new mattress every year because the mattress breaks down? We were told you have to do what you have to do. So we ordered a new but same mattress and was told it would be delivered on April 30th. However after again stripping our bed for the delivery, we called Penny’s again as no one ever showed up. We were told they didn’t even have our name down for delivery! We have now been told the mattress and box springs will be delivered on May 5th. We have NO CONFIDENCE this will actually occur and expect we will have to make yet another phone call next week!

Good evening me and my wife wear shopping for rings for out wedding well long story short when we decided to buy her ring it needed to be resized for her and we where told it would take a couple of weeks well it went from a couple to three weeks plus, and now we took the ring back because one of the diamonds fell out and was bent a little on the bottom of the ring and again we where told a couple of weeks. Well on 5/1/2015 I called to check the status and I was told that the person who helped me when we went to the store would call me back I made the call around noon or so well I forgot about it until my wife got home around 5 P.M so I called back and I did speak to the salesperson who did the paperwork and she told me to hold because she had to talk to the manager about it and I said to her “you told me that earlier and now its 5 and now you want to go ask the manager. She put me on hold and when she got back on the phone she said that the shipment had gotten delayed and then said the diamond had to be ordered because they did not have it. So I said to her why would you have not called to let us know what was going on and I was very upset and asked to speak to the manager and she said ok back on hold when she came back on she said the manager was busy and could not come to phone but while I was asking her questions the manager was responding to everything I and my wife was asking but would never get the phone. So the manager said to my wife that she hopes it will be there thursday. But why did the manager not get the phone or get our number and give us a call back. Can some one please call the manager at the Boynton Beach Mall in Boynton Beach, Fl and find out why was she so rude and not talk to buyer.

I am very disappointed with the way online orders are handle. I ordered 2 dresses on last Thursday the 23rd and paid for 2 to 3 day delivery. My confirmation email stated that the expected delivery date will be the 29th. I didn’t receive the dresses and when I called customer service to see what happened, I was told that my order had just been shipped out this morning. I am very upset because I need the dress for my daughtet to wear to my son wedding on Friday. Now she doesn’t have a dress. I will no longer shop at JC Penney because this is not right. I should have been contacted if there was a issue with the order.

Last week I took my adult son to the J.CPenney at the Rim shopping center in San Antonio TEXAS.While I went to the womens section he went to the mens shoe department, found a pair and while checking the fit in the mens dressing room decided they were the onse he wanted.He texted me to say he had found a pair and was going to wear them since we were headed to dinner after shopping.As he left the dressing room a man was standing right in front of the dressing room door and asked my son”are you buying those?”He told him yes he was and the man asked him where are your old shoes?” My son was a little startled at how rude the man was being, but he told him he had them in the box.The man then told him, I need to walk you to the front registers so you can pay.I was still shopping in the womens section when my son sent me the text message telling me what happened, he asked the cashier who the man was and was told it was the mens department supervisor. How does Penneys expect to keep loyal customers when they treat them like criminals?Ive worked retail for over 38 years as sales floor help all the way up to store manager and let me tell you if any of my associates had EVER treated a customer that way they would be gone, especially a supervisor who is held to a higher accountability for their actions. How very rude of this man and shame on J.C.Penneys for having anyone like that representing them.


Wendy S May 9, 2015 at 4:11 pm

Your son was in the wrong….you don’t wear the shoes around the store before buying them. What if did that, then after scuffing them up, decided he didn’t like the way they felt? Then the store is out. Plus it doesn’t look right


Michelle anderson April 18, 2015 at 3:26 am

so. last year i bought an arizona tshirt for my son. its his favorite vneck shirt. this year he decided it was so much his favorite shirt that he requested an even number of each red black white and grey only in one style one brand of this shirt. 6 of each. i made it up to 5 of each with the sale. that is a lot of shirts. he also requested i remove the sticker and the price tag for him from all 20 or more shirts. that was not fun.
he likes to wear new clothes directly from the store in new condition. he put one of his new shirts on yesterday. said it was too hot and not very comfortable fabric.
we looked in the new shirts. every single darned one of them said made in india. and 100 percent cotton.
his favorite shirt sat in his closet, arizona. same color red. same name in the shirt. but it did not say 100 percent cotton. it did not say india.
thank you jcpenney for wasting our hundred dollars. and for now the need to return all the shirts and start over.
his favorite shirt same style color and brand, says cotton and polyester, a more comfortable fabric and lighterweight so not as hot as the new ones that are hundred percent cotton.
and they say made in india…his old favorite shirt says made in indonesia.

why did you change the shirts and not inform customers. either way. i have the receipt. i have the tags. and i have the whole stack of shirts.

i purchased crackers from a dollar store in town. not far from the mall where your shirts were purchased. i opened the crackers, they smelled like sweat and dirt. i didnt notice the smell in the container til after popping a small cracker in my mouth. it burned my mouth. i spit it out. it burned for a good ten minutes before i could get something to drink. it was plain wheat crackers. i went back to that dollar store. they said i could not return the crackers due to having opened them. they too were made in india.

please bring back the material from indonesia that is more comfortable for the favorite arizona vnecks in a lighterweight material that is softer than the heavy lesser quality hundred percent cotton made in india….so far i have had two products from india. both have been a big failure.

question now is where do i find partial cotton and polyester arizona tshirts made in indonesia with the arizona style and brand name in them….nowhere unless jcpenny has a supply of them somewhere in last years orders that we could swap out.? i would hope so!

I purchased a Silver Diamond Band on 9/21/2014 from the Coliseum Drive Store in Hampton Va. The ring after a couple weeks tarnish and I had it cleaned in the store. I thought the problem was solve. Then several weeks more it happen again ,this time I had it send out. I purchased the extended service plan.They keep the ring for about a month. I had the ring about another 3 weeks when it tarnished again. I was told by one of the sales person that my body chemistry is causing the problem. So when it happen the third time I ask for them to buy it back. I went to pick up my other ring which I have had issues with that one also. I was given the ring back, I ask the salesperson why she was returning the ring back. She that it couldn’t be brought back because it was fixable. I left the ring at the store and requested to speak with a manager. That has been about 3 weeks now and they still have the ring. So I called the service plan provider and ask them why they wouldn’t buy the ring back since it will always tarnish on my finger according to them and the salesperson. I was told my the rep on the phone that they don’t buy back the ring that I would have to talk to JCP about that. I did and asked for my money back. I was told that the purchase date was greater than 30 days. I told her that was true because I have been getting the ring fixed over and over again. If I had know all this I would have ask for the refund back. However I was lead to believe that the ring could be brought back. The ring in my opinion is not fixable since it continue to tarnish on my finger and I will have continue to have it polish until forever.I just want this nightmare to end.


William Adams April 13, 2015 at 9:30 am

I hope everyone here has a better experience than I have had trying to order and receive furniture from JCP.

On 3/21/2015 I order a Kitchen Table with 4 chairs as well as an additional 2 chairs for a total of 6 chairs.

On 3/24/2015 I received notification my order on the way.

On Thursday 4/02/2015 I received a call from the carrier letting me know they would deliver my new kitchen table and chairs the next day between 2 and 6 PM.

On Friday 4/03/2015 a little before 2:00 PM I took apart my existing table and move it along with chairs.

– At 4:29 PM I received a call from a driver at the carrier company saying the driver for my furniture was out sick and they wouldn’t deliver that day. I requested he have a Supervisor call me since I was having a birthday party at 6:39 for my grandchild and had NO kitchen table. He said he would.
– At 5:03 PM since I hadn’t heard from anyone I called the carrier company dispatcher who told me she hadn’t heard from any of her drivers that day, would do some checking and call me right back with a status.
– At 5:45 I gave up waiting and spent more time putting my old table back together for the party.

On Monday morning I called the carrier and was told they would deliver that day between 11:00 and 3:00.

– At 11:20 I received a call from my wife saying the table didn’t have any legs so I told her to send it all, including chairs back.
– At 11:11:52 I finally got thru to JCP furniture call prompt .. took 12 minutes to get a live body.
– They checked and said I could get the order delivered that Saturday 4/11/2015.

On Thursday 4/9/2015 I received a call from the carrier stating they didn’t deliver on Saturdays so it would have to be the flowing Monday.

– I called JCP at 2:50 pm and asked what was going on. After spending several minutes checking I was informed JCP made a mistake and that particular carrier didn’t deliver on Saturdays and the could have it delivered Monday 4/13/2015.
– Since I had already been promised 3 previous dates, 2 which the carrier couldn’t make and one where the table had no legs making it useless as well as completely disabled and then put back together my existing table once I asked about any compensation.
– I was told I would get compensation but they wouldn’t tell me how much. When I told them I needed to know to see if my wife thought it was enough to justify a 4th try I was informed they could tell me before it was delivered because it was company policy.

I then thought no table was worth this kind of hassle and CANCELLED my order.

On a side note .. I just received my JCP bill and the $1,200 for the kitchen table/chairs are on there.

Reasons I will never order from JCP again.

JCP uses a delivery company which was very unprofessional.

– Why would a driver call and say another driver was sick? Shouldn’t that call have been made from the dispatcher?
– How can the dispatcher from a professional company tell me after 5:00 PM she didn’t know what was going on and she hadn’t heard from any of their drivers that day.
– When the dispatcher assured me she would find out what was going on and call me back why did she wait until Monday. At the very least a professional company’s dispatcher would have called me back if for no other reason than to let me know since it was after 5:00 PM on a Friday she wasn’t able to get hold of anyone and it would be Monday before she would know something.
– I would also like to know if the driver got sick on the Job or called in sick and they waited until 4:29 PM to let me know.

The fact JCP scheduled a Saturday delivery for a carrier they use that doesn’t deliver on Saturdays tells me a lot about JCP’s database of carriers. This is 2015 NOT 1990. Having a database of carriers and when they make deliveries is real simple for most companies in this day and age.

JCP Policy’s on not letting the customer know what kind of compensation they are willing to give until AFTER the furniture has been delivered makes absolutely no sense what so ever.

If they said they would credit me say $50 for the furniture which I still didn’t have after 3 tries I would have said no thank you.

However, if they said they would credit me say $150 for the furniture which I still didn’t have after 3 tries I would have asked my wife if $150 was worth her trying one more time.

Just saying I would like the compensation, especially after trying 3 times which included taking my existing table apart and then reassembling it in a rush, makes me think they are used to dealing with idiots or very naïve customers.

Of course when you think about it, how naïve do you have to be to order furniture on line, site unseen, based on the quality and service you used to get from JCP.

Just my 2 cents on my experience ordering from JCP.


Jesse Cowdrey April 11, 2015 at 6:43 pm

I went back to your store a few years back and JCP was under many changes. I loved the new merch, pricing without gimmicks and customer service was fantastic. Went back often and I told everyone how great it was to shop at JCP now and how it has changed. Others went and loved it. Well I was there today and it looks like you went back to your same tired products and customer service was rude and slow. I usually shop online with you but had noticed options had become terrible online for JCP. This is what prompted me to come in today. I think I am done and I have heard this from others.. So sorry you went back to your old mess and didn’t give a good thing time to catch on. It does take time.

As a stylist at the Jcp salon for the last eight years i now have to complain about the computer system and booking process . It now takes 10 min to book appointments for my clients. It is no longer easy to check clients in and out as the process is difficult and time consuming . Clients are upset that the majority of the time there is no receptionist. Yet the company pushes client building . How is someone supposed to call and set up an appt , and sit on the phone for ten minutes while the appt is being booked? Corporate will not give our salon more receptionist hours yet we are supposed to build? Mistakes are made bc of the lack of receptionists and I am forced to cut my own pay bc I have to discount my services bc clients are waiting and unhappy! Managers are forced to go thru the trash to do orders and it has been so time consuming that they cannot focus on the jobs that need to b done! I don’t believe that people who have worked In the salon business thought of this . I reccomend that these things are brought to attention because the company is loosing valuable clients and employees as it is more stressful than ever

My daughter went to work for JC Penney in McAlister OK and was to get her first check on Wednesday by direct Deposit. She stopped on her way to work and put gas in her car to make the 30 mile trip to work and discovered her check had to been deposited. When she got to work she talked to her Manager and was told that since she was new her check would come in the form of a paper check. She was told she would have it Thursday. She didn’t receive her pay and was told it would be Friday, then Saturday. Then proceeded to ask her to work more hours and when she said she wasn’t sure if she should since she hasn’t been paid they told her they would have to cut her hours and said the Weather caused a delay in Delivery. I’m not sure what weather they are talking about. Do the checks come from the North Pole?


John Williams April 4, 2015 at 12:43 am

I have Repeatedly tried to complain by email but I get cut off “magically” and can’t even delete to fit in key points or anything.
My problem is, I ordered 4 shirts online from big and tall. 2 of them fit and the other two were to small. Different brands so I can understand. I had to go to the store to do the exchange so I went to Tempe Market Place JCPenny in Arizona. There big and tall section is no larger then a motel room. I am a YMCA coach for troubled youth children as well as a PTA member for my son’s school. My wife passed away last year so it’s all up to me to set an example. Explain to me how I am supposed to do this when every entire shirt in the Big & Tall section was alcohol or beer related? Not just a few, every single shirt. I tried to reorder the two shirts that didn’t fit in the next size up in hopes that they will fit. Neither were in stock of course. So my major issue is, to be tall or overweight does this mean we have to be alcoholics? How offensive is that? I don’t like plain v-necks, button ups nor do I like polos. I like graphic T’s and apparently Tempe Market Place JC Penny thinks us big guys only want alcohol shirts. All I wanted were the same Adidas shirts I ordered online but in a larger size and to be able to try them on to be sure they fit. I hate ordering online because half the time they fit, the other half they do not. Why can we not have the same selection in store that you have online? For your abundance of only beer and alcohol shirts in your closet size big and tall section for a role model who doesn’t even drink, I will not be shopping with you online ever again and not in your store especially. It’s a shame because I’m 6’5 and fit and have been buying shirts from your company and your company only for 18 years now as you usually have shirts that fit me perfect. I have not found this anywhere else. The only alcohol shirts was the final straw. I just wanted my Adidas shirts but to be able to try them on. Good luck selling any of those shirts and promoting something that ruins more people & families lives then all drugs combined. I will never spend another penny in your store again after this. I wish I knew what happened to you and your values.


Corey B April 2, 2015 at 1:32 pm

I went shopping in jcpenney and as I was leaving I fell and my phone dropped out of my pocket. Without noticing right away I left the mall then later notice and immediately returned to jcpenney. The phone was turn into them but they gave it away to another customer who said she was missing her phone. I was sure to ask the jcpenney associate just incase their manager asked her after I did, did she ask the young lady to describe the phone before giving it to her. The associate said the customer was looking around acting depress and said she drop a black phone so the associate said she gave it to her as soon as she mentioned it was black. When asked can they review cameras and report the picture to the police they said they couldn’t help me.I asked for a number to corporate and they said there’s no need to call them because they won’t be able to help you either. I feel that if jcPennys really care about their customers like they say they do then why don’t they let their associates know the proper way of handle the situation such as asking them to describe the color of the phone, the make and model, the background pictures or even the carrier of the phone. She didn’t ask any questions and just gave the phone away it’s my fault i dropped the phone but it jcpenneys fault it was stolen like that and the fact that they can’t even help me catch who did it makes things a lot worse. If I were to go into jcpenney and steal something right now I bet they would check the cameras but seeing that it’s my property and not theirs they don’t care for it.


Julie S. Love April 1, 2015 at 2:08 pm

I ordered on line a flat iron on March 19, 2015 and on March 31, 2015 I called UPS with a tracking number and was told they did not have the merchandise and was told to contact JC Penney.. I called JC Penney and was told the order had been cancelled, which I never received a notice, was also told they did not place back orders, which could cause you to lose business. To make matters even worse, I was charged on my bill without receiving the merchandise.
I, my family and friends have been a J C Penney customer for many years and I must say this is a very poor policy . I am sending this complaint to you so perhaps some changes can be made, so that other customers will not be dissatisfied as I am and they will continue to shop at JC Penney.
I would appreciate a response.I


Beverly Dempsey-Moody March 28, 2015 at 12:50 am

In Dec. I charged $15 on my credit card. In March I received a paper bill statement for $88.11 of which
$75 was for 2 months of late fees. I called and was told that they had sent me email statements. I
immediately paid the bill and cancelled my credit card since customer service did not seem to
listen to anything I had to say. I did not receive any emails that I recognized from J. C. Penney’s.
I have been a loyal customer for many years and my mother had even worked there in Garland at a
store at one time. Then I found out this had lowered my credit score from 757 to 710. Now that
really made me upset. Is there anything that can be done to help get my credit score back to what it was? In my entire life I have never had to pay a late fee for 2 months. I have always paid my bills on time
and am very conscientious about my bills and paperwork.


Sue Greenfield March 27, 2015 at 6:53 am

to the President and CEO.
I love JC Penney and remember going with my mother to JCP back in the 1950s. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about the Main Streets of small and medium cities and visualizing how city planners could revive the Main St concept in their communities, like the Main St in Laurel, MD. And maybe someone is doing this concept already… I visualized small store fronts on Main St with such companies as JCP in which the consumer could walk into the store, after being attracted by the window display, and enter a world of “just enough”…in other words, a sample of the latest trends in clothes and shoes with individualized customer service that they could purchase at the store. And to one side of the store a “soda fountain” area where customers could shop online while enjoying a drink and small snack or bakery item. The customer can place their order and meet with friends and shop online together using their store id number. They can either have the product delivered there or to their home. A lot of women shop with their friends. For Christmas shopping a group of my friends would go to the Silver Diner for breakfast and shop online on my iPad while we waited for our food. We had so much fun doing this. Wouldn’t it be nice if friends could have that experience with an exclusive JCP store IPad for online shopping get-together while getting with friends over coffee and bagels or soda and small sandwiches. It would be even more innovative if they could have a virtual EZtouch Mobile technology interactive screen from vizlogix
Just an idea.

I was very disappointed to learn that JC Penney would be closing 39 stores, one of which is in Wilson, North Carolina. JC Penney has operated there since 1939 and will be ending its relationship with the city and its customers after more than 75 years! Sure, everyone can shop online, but most will not due to the fact that items must be shipped and customers will pay additional fees in return. While everyone understands that lower performing stores cannot survive, this specific store sealed its own fate when management refused to leave a dying shopping mall. When the other anchor stores (Belk, Sears) left, JC Penney must have thought it could survive that blow to business. Sears left because it also closed its Wilson store. Belk used it common sense and became the survivor by relocating to a thriving part of the city in a new shopping center.

While many of us will miss the products the department store had to offer, the real loser in all of this is the employees of the store and the company itself. Our residents will find other local department stores with which to shop. So long JC Penney…….


A.Ort March 11, 2015 at 2:02 pm

PRESIDENT AND CEO-DESIGNEE/Anthony (Tony) Bartlett; SVP, Stores/Mike Rodgers; EVP, Omnichannel
You have been making several serious mistakes for several years, and I have been trying to contact someone who might actually pay attention. I hope this will answer, because JC Penney products, services, etcetera keep on going DOWNHILL. The 1st problem you have never realized nor ever addressed is J.C.Penney Salons. You NEVER advertise. Most of the customers in your stores and all POSSIBLE new customers do not even know that you have Salons. Due to the huge advertising mismanagement and general mismanagement altogether, many of your Salons have been closed. I am most unhappy about this as the greatest assets you have are the Salon and Sephora. One can always get hair services on the JC Penney card, a major asset indeed, but now I now have to drive 3 townships away to hopefully have my hair done. This basically sucks eggs, and is “neither pathological nor inane, but dumb” unquote.. Plus, you hide your Salons in a corner where no one can see them, which does not attract possible walk ins from any of the Malls they used to be in. If you would place them where they are more visible to EVERYBODY you might actually be able to make alot of money form the salon services. You never even advertise. DUH.
The 2nd problem is your Fine Jewelry. While you normally place at least this department where it can be seen, it pulls little or no business from the store due to the items offered and Presentation. You offer a few items of interest, but do not present this department in an attractive manner like Macy’s does. They have their fine jewelry in a special, protected location behind their junk jewelry, and offer more interesting items that LOOK to be of more value than the few tiny things you present for purchase. The way they present their fine jewelry makes it seem of higher value than your presentation. I rarely see anyone doing very much shopping in this department, which, again, is obvious bad management.
The 3rd problem is your customer service. That has been going from bad to WORSE. At this point at several stores the customer is LUCKY to find ONE salesperson available per floor. This is just obvious stupidity. If your customers cannot even find a cashier, they will shop somewhere else where they can get the assistance they need rather than the hide and seek and 1/2 hour waits at the few open registers in your stores.

The items you sell have improved slightly from the garbage introduced by the previous CEO et al, but still has a way to go to draw in clientele. If you improve services that draw customers into the store, such as the Home & Bath departments, Jewelry and Fine Jewelry, Sephora and your shrinking and vanishing Salons, you will draw more shoppwers into the store for more items. I always end up shopping when I have an appointment for the Salon or need something from Sephora or am looking for a piece of Jewelry, which I usually end up finding elsewhere, like Macy’s. Even Sears has better fine jewelry in their displays than you do!!! Special sales, better presentation, better itemsd in your fine Jewelry at interesting prices to attract business, special offers regarding Salon Services, holiday (upcoming Easter and June Weddings) sales would improve. You need to manage your stores and your managers better. I usually shop at the JC Penneys at Main Place in Orange, or the store I used to go to at Orange Mall until you ran that down to nothing, but am now transferring alot of business to Macy’s because they offer more assistance and better items at this time.


Ashley March 6, 2015 at 4:47 pm

I would first like to say I am outraged by the customer service that was given to me at this JCPenney location, “Snohomish, WA” I should say lack of customer service because I was shown none! I have worked in customer service for over 7 years, and the way I was treated I think that JCPenney should be embarrassed! I walked into the Snohomish, WA location at 12:00 p.m. on March 6, 2015. “Mind you the store was dead”. I was intending to buy new clothes and shoes for my promotion at work. I got promoted to an Administrative Assistant and needed new outfits and new shoes. No one greeted me when I entered the store, which was no big deal, I am use to that at this location. The thing that I am outraged about the most is that I stood in the shoe department for over five minutes and no one asked me if I needed helped. The way I see it is, if I am intending to buy two – three pairs of shoes at $50 a pair, I should not have to ask for help. The other things that outraged me was to see two of your incompetent employees look at me while I entered your store, not only did they not greet me, but they were shopping for themselves while they were on the clock. “How do I know this do you ask?” Well the answer to that is, a guy asked the two of them is they were shopping on the clock, they answered with, “I am trying to help her “meaning the other employee” find something before she leaves.” The heavier set gentle man just smiled and walked away. “I am not sure if he was a supervisor, manager, or employee.” I would like to know, why are your employees allowed to shop for themselves while they are on the clock, instead of helping the customers who help pay their wages? Anyway, the other thing I am outraged with is, as I am still standing there is the shoe department watching these two incompetent employees, who have perfect view of me continue to shop for themselves, one of them ran by me and said “Hi” then she ran back by me without asking if I needed help as I am holding a display shoe in my hand. If you don’t believe me go ahead and pull the store surveillance camera footage and look for yourself, March 6, 2015, 12:00 p.m. – 12:15 p.m. Your employees made me feel unwanted, they made me feel like I was not even there, I refuse to support a business like this, and help pay peoples wages that teat me this way. I walked into your store planning to spend a good $200.00 and ended spending $0.00 due to the lack of customer service and the incompetence of your employees. JCPenny should be embarrassed for have employees like this working for them, I would check your work schedule and see which employees were working at the time of this and give them some customer service training. I will not be shopping at JCPenny again.


Clara West March 6, 2015 at 2:03 am

I would like to meet with JC Penney corporate office to discuss the Koko and Friends children’s characters that has the same (or greater) market potential that Barney the Purple Dinosaur had in the 1990s. The link to our youtube video. There is a story to this project based on the Golden Rule. Thanks for your time.


Anonymous March 3, 2015 at 9:38 pm

JCP SALON/NOVI MI. I went into the salon with my daughter for a quick walk in because I found out it useful since we were at the mall We went in and the receptionist she was very helpful and nice she was trying to find space for Us and told us to hold on to check who was available then I waited and she came back and her manager approached her in a very rude rude way and then she started to scream at her in front of me and my daughter very loudly and go crazy at her in a loud voice it was very highly unprofessional and unethical the way she attacked the young woman. She then told us to come back because her manager told her there was no room for us, she was very upset and I think that was very wrong to do!!! I was very in shock at the moment. I have never seen that type of harassment in my life. Unfair, distributing and awful. I hope action will be taken quickly on this manner… very wrong to do to an employee…


Vickie Ware March 2, 2015 at 9:29 pm

I have just read the comments and they are not very impressive. We have had a lot of great things happen with your company. Until recently when we bought a diamond bracelet. I had to return it however, I purchased another one. Somehow the bracelet broke and I have lost it. I was hoping they would take into account the amount of money I have spent with you and help me with a new one. Unfortunately they weren’t all that helpful. They gave me a discount on a new one but I was hoping for something more after all the money I have spent there. I will willingly bring the bracelet back if I find it however I think someone saw it and kept it. I am heartbroken since this was a gift from my husband and I can’t think of anything worse than having to tell him I have lost his gift. Please JC penney do the right thing and replace this bracelet. We have spent thousands of dollars with your company and one $600.00 bracelet will only help your company. I will do nothing but suggest new customers to your business. Please help me keep the peace with my husband of 34 years. Thank you. Vickie Ware Cw***


David Palmer March 2, 2015 at 6:18 pm

My name is David palmer, you just one of your best cluster store manager her name is Gail Lea Cochran she run the mattoon and Effingham stores in Illinois in January their district got eliminate and both of her stores got absorbed by st Louis district manager Pam Harmon, Gail was and has always been the go to girl to get the best results for Jcp i have known her for 25 years and she has always taken the high road and treated eeveryone Fairly, I’m asking for someone up the ladder to look at Gail’s record with the company and review the clam of policy violation of charity funds witch she had the paper work for,the policy changed in November on how to take and handlemoney from charity,Gail was unaware of the change and her old LP did not notify her of change, that being said Gail was close to the her old district manager Carrie bunard, and after the investigation started three weeks ago Carrie has told Gail the her and Pam never got along, I think if Pam had got to really know Gail she would of had a great stores on her team, Gail was to go to Texas here soon and she was invited to stay and extra day for the stores that done over the top on performance, please get this to upper management !?!Gail was on her way to become a great asset to JCP thank you for your time
Sincerely. David Palmer


Upset customer February 16, 2015 at 12:35 pm

Back in 2011 my mother and sister bought me a pair a earrings that I really wanted as a thank you/Christmas gift. I send the earrings in a few times to get cleaned and stones replaced if any stones fall out. This last time I sent them to get cleaned instead of cleaning them, they were painted white. So the design was no longer on it and instead of the original design that I loved, theypainted small black lines on it that looked like a toddler painted and the stones were not put on in the right spots. They looked like a whole other set of earrings. I’ve complained called corporate and have yet heard anything back. They have not given me the earings back instead sent out buy out forms to the local store so I can get money for them and buy something else in the same value of my earrings. They no longer have those earrings in stock and they just took the sentimental value away and have no sympathy for it. I don’t want cash back for a gift my mother and sister got me. I want my earings or at least the same earrings. The sentimental value can’t be replaced and they refuse to make me a happy customer. I’m very upset. NEVER sending a thing out to get cleaned or replaced at jcpenny ever again.


Cindy Lockwood February 12, 2015 at 5:47 pm

Worst customer service ever. I ordered a queen size bed on December 10, 2014 and after a month went by of not receiving it, only the bed frame, I decided to cancel the order. I went in to my local jc penny’s January 30 where I actually ordered it through their online system and had the employee at the desk cancel my order. I asked why I never recieved it and she had no idea, go figure. She told me 3-5 business days my account will be credited back! It is now February 12, come to find out my order was NEVER cancelled, money was NEVER credited back, and still I DID NOT receive my bed. I am beyond upset. It took for me to call corporate to find out what the hell was going on. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE. They did not say sorry or seem very sympathetic which is what I expect ! Nor did they offer me anything after all the BS I had to go through. Ridiculous !


T Evans February 7, 2015 at 11:30 pm

I have just decided to take legal action against JCPenney. 4 years ago when I worked for them, I was sexually assaulted by another worker. I was scared and upset and confused. I didn’t say anything to my parents at the time because I wasn’t sure what to do and I just wanted the whole thing to go away.

I finally brought it to my managers attention because a co-worker told me that if I didn’t say something it might happen again. So I sat woth my supervisor and the store manager and told them what happened. Another manager who was present told me that she had had to separate myself and the coworker in question several times. This NEVER happened and I am convinced that she was eother lying or had me confused withanother girl. I was too shy and shocked to tell her she was wrong in front ofthe store manager so I sat in a miserable silence. I was then informed that. They would fire ME if I spoke to that co-worker or even went near him again-as if I WOULD! Nice job JCPenner-make your workers feel as if they have done something wrong when THEY are the victim.

I just recently told my parents that this happened and they were very upset on my behalf. They told me that just because my managers shrugged it off like it wasn’t a big deal didn’t mean that it wasn’t. I was still a teenager when this happened but I am much older and wiser now and I understand that they handled the situation very wrongly. I am also very angry…good luck trying to talk your way out of this one, JCP.


patricia hanrahan February 3, 2015 at 8:52 pm

worst customer service ever/ I have been waiting for this appointment for a month and they didn’t call or show up! The mattress and box spring are trash and someone was suppose to come out after much yelling they called me back and told me they could come out 2/3/15 at 4pm it’s 5:41and jcp has no access to company that was to come out or to anyone in furniture department / wow I took off early drove busted my butt to be on time and not even a courtesy call! they called on 1/28 at 8.25 to confirm but my 74 year old mother did not answer/ Ten times I told them that they had to call me at my cell number and that my sick mother could not let them in and handle this they were very rude! They never even put my cell number in the system according to the rep I spoke to this afternoon. I will be filing small claims on Friday if I cannot get someone out to look at bed! Shame on jcp I have loved shopping at your store but I am not happy with the way you have treated me!


Avis Heffernan January 27, 2015 at 12:04 pm

I bought 2 pairs of shoes in Nov. When I got home there was bill for me. I had First Merit send my payment online,Synchrony Bank Have never received my payment.

I am upset and I want you to know that I won’t be using your Credit Card ever again. I won’ t be shopping there again, you just lost a customer.


jacob January 23, 2015 at 7:29 pm

Is it breach of contract for a manager at a jcpenney to also manage or own a liquor store?


K.R. January 22, 2015 at 10:28 pm

Very disappointed to hear the news of the salon in Lake Wales to be closed in Feb. I have been using their services for five years, I am not a snowbird and use their services ever three weeks! JC Penney salon will be greatly missed, If the store remains open why are you closing the salon? You now put many women in a position of finding new stylists which for some is not easy, not to say the stylists who have been there for years now have to find jobs else where. This salon has participated in many free services for opening of school for children and other service specials which many salons don’t even offer. These people that worked in this salon have worked hard to keep it going, just don’t understand, again why if the store stays open give them another chance to bring their numbers up!!!!
Very disappointed customer, remains


Bev Mrozinski January 10, 2015 at 10:04 pm

I am VERY sad and disappointed about your decision to close the store at Marquette Mall in Michigan City, IN. I have been a loyal customer of Penney’s for over 30 years. This is one of the anchor stores in the mall and will further add to the decline of customers throughout. Please reconsider this decision.
Thank You,
Bev Mrozinski


WEW January 16, 2015 at 7:06 pm

Unfortunately, a decision to close particular stores is a matter of financial return on investment. Stores that do not attract enough business (called “under performing stores”) are on the line for closure. In addition, there are malls that do not attract the traffic needed to support large anchor stores. JCP is facing a changing retail landscape. Today, JCP shares closed at $7.44, down 3.5%. JCP has no choice but to close under performing stores. Mall stores are usually closed to coincide with lease terminations. Mike Ullman (current CEO) inherited a mess from Ron Johnson, former CEO hired from Apple. Ullman has issued communications to JCP associates to return to the ethical standards of James Cash Penney, who founded his Golden Rule Stores in 1902. Today, many JCP associates do not embody Mr. Penney’s Golden Rule treatment of the customer. J C Penney Company, under James Cash Penney, had grown to over 3000 retail locations. Today that number is under 1100. What more is there to say? A decline of nearly 66% of retail locations! More power to Mike Ullman, as he has a hard row to hoe. Local associates need to get on board and return to good customer service. Quoting from Ullman’s March 2014 letter to JCP associates:
“Through the Statement of Business Ethics, we can carry on the legacy established over a century ago by James Cash Penney and our original Company leaders, who challenged us to continually ask ourselves whether our actions square with what is right and just. Thank you for your time and contributions to this legacy. [Signed] Sincerely Myron E. (Mike) Ullman, III.
Yes, some local management associates need re-training.


shelly curby January 8, 2015 at 11:53 pm

Plan o grams and cookie cutter stores. Remember the days….when visual Merchandisers would display the stores, using a mix of cueing elements, props and merchandise? I do….I worked as a visual merchandiser traveling from store to store. JCP you need to find yourself, you don’t want to be a Walmart.


WEW January 16, 2015 at 7:21 pm

LOL. Sam Walton actually got his start with J C Penney Company in 1940, in Des Moines, Iowa store. But Walmart cannot be compared to JCP. Ullman will be sure of that. By 1941 there were 1600 Penney’s stores in 48 states. Sam Walton didn’t develop the same business principles as James Cash Penney. Penney actually believed in the biblical Golden Rule principle of treating others with respect and dignity, as you would want to be treated, including his customers.


LaShon B Southfield, MI January 8, 2015 at 1:03 pm

I am totally frustrated with JC Penney. I opened a new account late last year and have been making on-time payments. Yet, they (or Synchrony Bank) called my house numerous times this year about my account. I though nothing could possibly be wrong with it but I called back anyway. I discovered that my account was past due. (But how could this be?) The payments I had made for the last few months were being applied to a JCP account which I closed about 10 years ago. The old account showed a credit of almost $200. Also, I was told by the customer service rep. that I actually have 4 JCP accounts. I didn’t open four accounts, I told her. She said that sometimes when you make a purchase (with a debit card), the sales associate is opening up an account for you and you don’t even know it. (She actually told me that!) She also said that many other customers had complained about the same thing. I asked why my old account was sitting out there and why were the payments applied to it. I was told that they cannot delete any accounts. They will always be there. WHAT? I have many charge cards and have NEVER heard such crazy nonsense. I have had credits on some of my account charge accounts. If I don’t use the credit within 30 days, I have always received a check for the credit amount. So, why did my credit sit on an closed account for several months? Anyway, I asked her to close all of the accounts. She agreed to do so and to subtract the late fees. I found out today that she didn’t close the accounts nor did she transfer the money. I am frustrated with JCPenney. If I ever shop there again (right now I don’t want anything to do with them), I will only use cash. I’m going to shoot tis form the mountain top, to anyone who sill listen: Shame on JCPenney. They are focused on money service not customer service!

Mailed payment of bill for $37.80 five days before due date…have now received bill for $25 late payment…..unbelievable! Cutting up my JCP credit card today – urging family members to do the same.


WEW January 16, 2015 at 7:24 pm

It’s the bank, not JCP. JCP has divested itself of all banking/credit card holdings.

The last 2yrs, I had visited JCPenney located in Puerto Rico, Plaza Las America and Plaza Carolina and the maintenance of the restrooms are NONE. Three times I had spoken with the Supervisor of both stores, but not luck. It is a real issue because is a matter of hygiene . I expressed my concerns, and not only the indifference the employers show when you ask for the supervisor and described to them the situation is disrespectful, but the attitude that this is a lady that like to complaint, so…. Is not a casual a situation at random, is a big ¨habit¨ to keep them (restrooms) not able to be used by costumers. Always excuses, like they will talk with the administrator of the Mall to check upon the cleaning company ( who has the control of the store); that they have situations with the company, etc.etc. etc. Blame others.
The next step is to call the Department of Health in Puerto Rico if the manager of both stores do not something. Here, in PR, we are clean, decent, professionals who care about how these big corporate stores act. We go there, spend money we deserve respect tom the employees and from the corporation.


Mo December 28, 2014 at 1:11 pm

I came to this page to communicate with JCP at a corporate level, because of a concern generated by something they did. At the top of this page is the ‘Contact JCPenney’ section which includes a link to email them. Click on that link and this is the message you get:
You 404’d it. Gnarly, dude.

Surfin’ ain’t easy, and right now, you’re lost at sea. But don’t worry; simply pick an option from the list below, and you’ll be back out riding the waves of the Internet in no time.
So much for emailing JCP corporate.

I simply want to respond to a email they sent this morning that includes a coupon promoting petite jeans.

In it, they feature Levi 529 jeans with a nice description and color pic BUT in fine print indicate that the Levi brand is “excluded from coupon”. Saying, essentially, “See, see, we have these but you can’t have them for that price.”

Do they have any idea how many more people they’re about to confuse, piss off and lose as customers?

No wonder JCP is struggling to stay in business. I’m about to click ‘Unsubscribe’ myself.

Good luck.

Your portrait studio in El Paso ar Cielo Vista is a joke. The appointments are never honored. We waited 45 mins after our scheduled appointment and were promptly hurried to get the pictures taken in less than 10 mins. Other people after us were also complaining because if their wait times. Whoever schedules should be demoted. Everybody was late and unfortunately not everybody working there was polite, only a couple of young ladies. First and last time we visit this location for portraits.

WEW January 16, 2015 at 7:28 pm

Associates in my local store need some lessons from Mark! James Cash Penney would be proud of Mark and the respect given to you.


Jesus g December 15, 2014 at 4:13 pm

To whoever is reading this the corporate or even random people I like to let you know I was an associate in Jcp and I made a mistake and was talked too to see if I was gonna be fired, they said they would call me to bring me in to discuss my mistake and they ignored, took me out of system and schedule. I also didn’t like the RACISM I got at work, I was helping a mexican family in watches and he told me to watch his watches to get his wife to discuss them and while he left I helped another customer and my manager came to help the mexican family and he said no cause he was waiting for m since I knew which watches he wanted so after I helped the other guest I went back and as I was ringing them up my manager came to me and said “Jesse just to let you know you can’t ring up friends and family” I was so mad and embarrassed and in front of the family. So just cause the family is mexican and im mexican they my family? No that’s Wrong! I hope whoever is reading this knows how jcp in San diego,CA is..they lost a customer, employee and everything about jcp…NEVER will I go in jcp and gonna spread the word.


WEW January 16, 2015 at 7:31 pm

Your local store apparently did not train you fully. You did have recourse to go to corporate. They would have investigated the situation.


Norma Lindsey December 15, 2014 at 10:58 am

On Sunday, Dec 14, 2014 I visited the JC Penney store at West County Mall in Des Peres MO. I parked on the south side of the store, and when I walked to the door, I noticed the trash cans were overfflowing with trash and food on the ground. I couldn’t believe that the store would allow this happen. When I was in the store, I brought it to the store manager’s attention who apologized, explained that not all of the maintenance staff had come to work, and they were working on it.

I also told her that I went to use the ladies restroom and immediately turned around because it was so dirty. The restroom was a hygenic nightmare, exposing us, your customers, to diseases such as hepatitis.

This experience reflected so poorly on your store. Does the store not care of how it looks to its customers? Does it not schedule overnight maintenance to clean the restrooms, and empty the outdoor trash cans? And if the some of the maintenance staff does not come to work, is there a plan B?

It will be a long time before I return to this store. The mall is a very nice mall in an upscale location and it would be nice if JC Penney maintained its store to the standards of the other stores.

Thank you for your attention.


Mona Williston December 11, 2014 at 3:48 pm

I made a purchase on Nov. 1, 2014 (under 60 days ago) for a ring on my credit card. Unfortunately I am unsatisfied with it, as it is to small/fragile, one of the diamond is not flush in the setting with the others, and I believe it to be a promise ring. I was looking for a ring for a gift to myself for my 50 birthday. I have been told I may return it to the store as I bought at the store. I suffer extreme anxiety and am unable to return it to the store at this time myself. I would like to get some type of approval to return it via the mail.
Thanking you in advance,
Mona Williston


Becky December 7, 2014 at 9:02 am

I really hope someone at jcp is reading customer comments and taking advise. I love jcp. My local jcp was on the close list but luckily escaped closure. So a couple things. The jcp clothing line needs to be resized or just give up it does not fit well and mostly goes to the Clarence rack. Right now at my local store there are many 3/4 length sleaves on sweaters and dresses. It’s cold here and none of my professional peers want to be chilly at work. Especially the cute sweater dresses. I would have bought a couple of those if they had full length sleaves. I am your target market. I am a professional with disposable income. Please start listening to real people, you know the ones who actually wear your clothes before you go out of business. P.S. Love my local store and staff.


Reta Voss December 5, 2014 at 2:56 pm

I have always had confidence in the ability to get good furniture from JCPenney
After two bad experiences I won’t be ordering any more This last one was a table and chairs It was delivered with a big scratch on the table even tho it was boxed
They are to bring another one but, after waiting two months to get it is not worth it
I guess I will just find some other company to shop with


Donna December 5, 2014 at 6:42 am

For many years I shop the early morning deals on Black Friday at the Freehold Mall in Freehold NJ. Mainly because I want the Disney Snow Globe. This year JCP decided to give them out the night before. I was very upset that the had never announced that they would be doing that. I went in at 5am and nothing!!!!! I asked numerous workers and to no avail they could not help me. I did not like how each person spoke with me about the situation. I felt that I was not worth their time. I put down the $300 worth of items that I was going to buy and walked out. I am done with JCP.


Matthew D December 3, 2014 at 11:30 am

Very sad indeed. JC Penney will not be in business very much longer if drastic changes don’t occur. I have been shopping at Penney’s my entire life (at least 40 years), but the service has become so abysmal that I can’t understand how they stay in business. I shop at the Wheaton Plaza store in Wheaton, Maryland. The store is beautiful, clean and well stocked. The problem? It’s very difficult to find an employee to assist. Most departments are not staffed. I have personally observed large-scale shoplifting as people who appear to be shopping for clothing boldly stuff merchandise in their back packs right on the floor. There are no employees around to deter theft, nor to provide assistance. Two weeks ago I called the store to find out if my catalog order was still available to be picked up because I had been out of town traveling after the order had been delivered to the store. I called numerous times and selected each menu item and each department trying to reach a human being. Nobody answered any of the lines. I called the corporate customer service number, and they, too, tried to reach a human being at the Wheaton Plaza store and could not do so. Yesterday when I went to pick up my catalog order, I walked all over the store trying to find the pickup counter because the signage at the escalators was incorrect. The signs indicate that the JCP pickup is on the first floor, but it is actually on the fourth floor. When I found an employee who was polite and informative, I commented on my phone experience. She told me that the store had forwarded all extensions from all menu options to Fine Jewelry since the counters are staffed, yet when they are with customers they cannot answer the phone. The phone …. for the entire store! I went to the window treatment department to get some roller shades and have them cut, and the rude and nonchalant employee told me in her cold voice with crossed arms that “we don’t do that here anymore.” How will Penney’s stay in business with all of the theft that occurs due to lack of floor coverage, the rudeness of employees, and the failure to answer the phone?


john morales December 2, 2014 at 8:06 pm

I took my kids for pictures today 12/2/14 the three girls behind the counter was very rude !!
How do you have little kid handling a job they cant do . Im at the jcp in Wayne and the girl took two pictures for each pose ,at the end only two pictures were ok the rest was terrible . I wasted my time !!! At the end they wouldn’t retake it now i will call corporate


Ilene W. December 2, 2014 at 11:16 am

I live in New Jersey and for many years frequented the JC Penny Outlet in Franklin Mills, PA, as did so many of my friends and acquaintances. It was a place that you could find most anything (to include misses slacks in tall sizes) with great prices. Needless to say, it was quite a blow when it closed. We were wondering if an outlet would ever open again and if so where (how about the Burlington Mall in Burlington NJ since the store you had closed).


frances machale November 24, 2014 at 1:46 pm

I recently visited the optical dept. in the Trumbull, Ct. store.. The man who helped me with my glasses was excellent and tried every thing he could to help me purchase the glasses I choose.. Unfortunately he was alone in the store and the customers kept lining up plus the interruptions with the phone calls.. He could not get any results on his computer for my second pair of glasses((poloroids) and his manager would not answer his phone for assistance.. I did contact the store manager but will pursue this more at the Corporate Headquarters in Texas if necessary.. It sounds like the manager of the optical dept. is not doing a good job.


Lori November 24, 2014 at 10:25 am

On or about 10/7/14 I visited the Springfield, VA store. After conducting my business, I went to the ladies room. When exiting something on the door snagged the outer shell if my top. It’s crocheted & obviously ripped.
I located an associate who stopped another associate who was on her way to lunch. She informed me all they could do was look at the door & tape it. I was so frustrated I left.
I sent a complaint to customer service via email. I received a reply that the store leader would contact me within 48 hrs. I waited 2 wks.
I called customer service department & was informed the store leader, Antonio, would be in touch with me in 24 hours.
I waited 2 wks & called customer service. I spoke with John who gave new the coprorated number. On 11/17/14 I called corporate & spoke w Robin, who said Antonio had 24-48 hrs to contact them with how he resolved the issue.
It’s now 11/24/14 and I’m still waiting for Antonio to contact me.
I called corporate at 9:15 this morning & spoke with Terry. Although I asked to elevate the issue with get supervisor, age said they were all equal & although there was a lead, she would tell new the a same. Terry said she would call the store when it opened & speak with either Antonio or the store lead on duty. They would call me to resolve.
I refused. I told her they’very had 6 weeks to contact me & I wasn’the waiting another 48 hours. I said if I didn’t get a call by noon today I would find a way to contact the VP of jcp & inform him off the issue using all their names.
She offered $50 gift certificate & I refused staying I would only accept cash.
I do not plan on shopping at jcp again. Their associates have no concern for the customers. Their store leaders appear to have the a acme attitude.
With this type of service, I give jcp 6 months before they end up closing the doors.


Jennifer November 20, 2014 at 1:56 pm

I’ve worked for JCP for a few years, due to my school schedule I always have Tues and Thur off. Usually they give me Wed also which is nice. This year JCP is opening at 5:00 PM and I am schedule at 4:30 PM. I have to work at 4:30 on Thanksgiving and we have been told if we don’t show up on Thanksgiving that we will be FIRED.

Because there are people who would rather be shopping and saving what they think is big money what actually they are not saving anything when you factor in gas, parking and long lines … how much did you really save to ruin a holiday.

I love this country but sometimes I hate it.


Retail Life November 22, 2014 at 12:50 am

I plan on contacting the corporate office my kid which is in highschool was just fired due to not being able to come to work on Saturday by some rude ignorant LOD at Meyerland by the name of Eddie P. … On Black Friday she’s scheduled to work 5pm to 5 am and return by 2pm the very next day. I’m like I’m an adult and I dot. Have a schedule this hectic. It’s just sad how KIDS are excited to have their 1st or 2nd job and adults that have been given the ability to hire and fire use the powers given by a Store for bad..


Nathaniel Kirby November 20, 2014 at 9:51 am

Stay closed all day on Thanksgiving Thursday. Give your employees the whole day without work. I do not work for Penney’s nor do I have a family member that does.


Larry Southerland November 17, 2014 at 6:44 pm

As being a loyal customer for years, Penney’s offered to raise my credit limit. However, after activating the new card that replaced the lower limit card, I learned there was a hard credit hit from the reporting credit bureaus. Trans Union for example hit me for minus 23 points. I was informed by Penney’s Customer Service Manager (Rodney) that it’s my problem to fix with credit bureaus even though the manager said this was not suppose to happen since Penney’s went off my credit history with them. Well, I guess I will fix this issue by paying off my credit card balance in next month or two, cancel the card, and take my business elsewhere. What is so ironic is I worked for Penney’s many years ago and received several customer service awards. My, how times have changed.


Cynde Wharton November 17, 2014 at 5:41 pm

Please do not allow this email to go without some attention. I know this is a very busy season for all stores. But, there is no excuse to what happened to my daughter at the optical Dept. @ JCP Johnstown, Pa office. I wanted to do something for my daughter for Christmas, so I thought I would get her an eye exam, contacts and glasses. She drove in from Pittsburgh, Pa with her two year old son, she was detained minutes and called to tell the Optical Dept of this, the girl at the desk said it was ok she was eight minutes late.
the girl at the counter said they could not take her being that she was so late. She called it was ok when she made the call, to make matters worse, she embarrassed my daughter in from of other people. After coming to get me, I was shopping at the time, I went back to the Optical Dept and told them she traveled two hours for this appointment, so she was gracious enough to tell me that she would have to wait to be seen. She waited twenty minutes and in that time, they, the girls in the front of the office were heard saying that she wanted to go over and tell my daughter what she thought. A woman that was near the office at the time was also upset at my daughters treatment. Really now, even doctors offices give you fifteen minutes before they cancel your appointment. The actions of that office was uncalled for, she, my daughter was reduced to tears. I spend thousands of dollars at this store, this month alone I spent $2000 getting shutters for my home. Now, either an apology is made to my daughter, or I will not purchase another thing in this store. I told my husband what happened and he called, the girls said she did not have anytime and hung up on him….he is an attorney and is not accustomed to this treatment.
Unless something is done with that very unpleasant girl and her assistant…count me out for shopping at your store.


AEL November 16, 2014 at 8:40 pm

I have been a long time jcp customer but after the atrocious customer service I received at your DEWITT NY store courtesy of a supervisor named Steve I am doubtful I will be making any holiday purchases w/ you this year.

At around 2:30pm my husband and I tried to purchase socks.

1) sales associate did not know how to scan the $10 coupon. When I mentioned this to my husband, supervisor Steve began snapping at me to “not treat his employees that way”. When I asked him to watch his tone he began berating me. When my husband asked Steve to STOP verbally abusing me Steve would not stop and ignored my husband. Steve continued behaving in a manner I believed was extremely racist, hateful, unprofessional and highly disturbing. Instead of trying to diffuse the situation he snatched the coupon from me and started reading to me in a patronizing and abusive manner.

2) when I asked for the name and contact number for the store mgr and the district mgr he flatly refused and dismissed me with a “I am the ONLY manager; you’ll have to deal with me.”

3) when I began to get agitated Steve continued to verbally abuse and mock me with other employees and CUSTOMERS. It was humiliating and devastating. His behavior was racist and HORRIFYING.

4) I then told Steve I was going to get contact info and I was going to file complaint and he scoffed and said “oh so you’ve done this before.” Then he laughed.

5) I kept asking for contact info and he refused to give it to me. Instead he called security even though my husband (who is white) and I (I am black) had done nothing wrong but voice our displeasure with Steve’s atrocious behavior.

Is this the kind of person you want representing your brand? A verbally abusively unprofessional, immature male who is unable to manage customer disputes without escalating them to the point where he is screaming at customers?

I have already contacted the district manager Al Simmons and left a message. I am very distraught, offended and devastated by the way my family was treated by one of the people your company has decided is leadership material. If Steve is unable to conduct himself in a professional manner and resolve customer complaints on a slow Sunday afternoon (there were a handful of customers) how could he possibly be able to effectively support your brand’s mission during the holiday season.

I would like the following:
1) an opportunity to discuss this matter with district leader Al Simmons

2) a WRITTEN and FACE to FACE apology from both the Dewitt store manager and Steve.

I used to love shopping at JcP but until this matter is resolved to my satisfaction my family and I will not shopping in your stores.


leschaun isaac November 16, 2014 at 10:36 am

I visited a store in florence, sc Nov 14 2014 in the evening, and the cashier in the boys department was very rude. She was talking about a customer as if the customer wasnt there. It was a African American female with braids. It seemed like the 2 customers she was waiting on were in on it too. She needs more training on customer service. Thank you


Cindy November 15, 2014 at 11:34 pm

Jcp it is terrible opening at 5 pm Black Friday!!! It’s as if family isn’t important anymore but only the cash in people’s pockets. On the other hand the store Jcp in Wayne nj is horrible every time I shop there is always a mess and this place is always under staffed. The fitting rooms are terrible because there is no courage on the floor and the lines are terrible. Not enough associates on the floor!!! I go there many times and see the same people running around like slaves multi tasking. I feel the employees very bad for the folks that work there I really do!


Rachel November 10, 2014 at 7:53 pm

I think it is absolutely disgraceful that JCP will be open on Thanksgiving at 5pm. No one will be shopping then! All you are doing is keeping your employees from being with their families. And paying them time and a half for working when there are no customers. I have been a big supporter of JCP for years, but this is a waste of money and is cruel to their employees. I implore you to please please please change to a later time, or better yet- Friday.


Chris November 12, 2014 at 8:56 am

I agree 100% with your post Rachel. All jcp corporate is doing is keeping their employees,mostly the management, from being with their families and spending quality time at the holidays with their FAMILIES. That is what the holidays are about, time with your families, NOT going after the all mighty dollar, nor being greedy! I guess the CEO and corporate people really need to learn a lesson in what holidays and families are truly about! Let me start your lesson off with,They are NOT about money! It’s truly sad that now a days all that the higher ups think about is the money and their bonuses, when all the while, the PEOPLE, employees in the jcp stores,have to work their butts off and miss out on a lot with their families so that the greedy corporate rats can get their bonuses and be sitting at home with their families or whatever they go home to!!! It’s a real shame, and the head CEO and corporate people and whoever else decide to NOT celebrate the holidays,by making their employees work on the holidays, they must truly not understand holidays are about, nor have a family. Let me let ya in on a clue mr.Ceo, it is NOT about money!
If anyone believes that any store bases their opening on the holidays because of consumers, are fools,that’s what the corporate tells the news so the CEO and corporate rats don’t look bad! It’s just really a shame you all do not get what life is about! I feel bad for you. I hope your gain in sales is terrible over the holidays for every store that is open. Good luck.


Tasia November 13, 2014 at 5:15 pm

I certainly agree with you Rachel. I’ve worked in Retail for years and FINALLY QUIT due to ALWAYS being away from family! EVEN GOD SET ASIDE A DAY FOR REST AFTER CREATING THE 7 days!


Rosa November 8, 2014 at 8:44 pm

Its called Black Friday not Black Thursday, JCPenny! Its ridiculous to make the JCPenny associates work on a holiday. Opening the store at 5:00 on Thanksgiving night is just pure disrespect to all your workers! Apparently you dont care enough for your employees to let them enjoy A HOLIDAY with their families! You should open at 4 or 5 am atleast so they can enjoy the food and the company of their families. There is just no respect of the holidays anymore and retail stores are just getting worse. I love shopping at JCPenny , but after the store opened Thanksgiving night at 8:00 last year I would have hoped that it wouldve changed. When I found out about the rumors that JCPenny was opening this year at 5:00, I asked some associatesif it was true but in respect for their jobs they never fully answered my question. I notice their reaction and I wanted to show my dissapointment toward JCPenny, and my sympathy for your employees. They definatly deserve to enjoy the holidays.


Patty R November 8, 2014 at 5:46 pm

I would like to know how I can file a complaint about a product I ordered online at and the treatment I received when calling customer service. I purchased a pantry, putting the product together and was almost finished when I noticed I was missing the top piece. I called customer service to find out how to get the piece and was told they couldn’t send me one. I could take the product to any JCP location and return it and they would order me a new one – and give a whole $10 off. I explained that I was almost finished putting it together and did not want a different product just the top sent to me. I spent a few hours putting it together and told them that $10 would not even cover my time and the trip to a store. I said they would need to take more off than that since I needed to disassemble it, pack it all back into the box, drive to a JCP store, unload it and drag it in the store. I asked to talk to the manager. She was very rude! Her new solution was to send UPS over to pick it up and have them inspect all of the items to make sure it wasn’t there. She acted like I was lying!! Really UPS is going to do that??? After 51 minutes on the phone the issue is still not resolved. The manager said she would call back in a few days. This was a total insult to my intelligence!! I like the pantry and just want the top to it!


Patty R November 9, 2014 at 3:40 pm

I wanted to follow up and let you know that I did receive a call back the following day from Shanna in customer relations. She rectified my issue to my satisfaction and was very polite. Thank you.


Shelia November 7, 2014 at 9:55 am

I feel all your store should have ride around in all your stores.
You have a lot of people with disabilities that can not walk through
your store. You want our business and money why not do something for us.
As much money as you make this is a must I live in Knoxville, Tn. Let me hear back from
you concerning this matter. Thank you!


Mariah November 6, 2014 at 7:36 pm

Opening up on Thanksgiving at 5:00p.m. is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous!!!!!! What happened to “family first”? Isn’t that what a holiday is all about!

I’m DONE shopping at Penneys.


Gary Crouch November 1, 2014 at 11:21 pm

Most of JC Penny stores are just fine, however, the one in Burleson, Texas has several
disrepectful liars among the other employees who are nice.
My wife has been insulted so many times there she is suffering from mental fatique.
I intend to pursue a defirmation of character lawsuit and harmful intent.
The circumstances are too many and too lengthy to outline here.
The store management and JC Penny Corp will be included.


Jamie blau October 31, 2014 at 12:35 am

I took my 8 year old son shopping at a jcpenny in the sunrise mall in Massapequa.. While riding the escalator his foot got sucked up in the side wall and was unable to get it out until we reached the top by that time the toe part of the shoe had been cut off.. Luckily he didn’t lose a toe, but he twisted his ankle pretty bad.. The manager on duty was very friendly and called an ambulance. He instructed me not to give my insurance info at the hospital as jcpenny has insurance and will take care of it and someone would be in contact with me within 48 hours. 1 week later no one contacted me. I went back to jcpenny spoke to a different manager who was just as friendly and was shocked no one contacted me and made some phone calls and assured me someone would call me that day.. But on my way she suggested to never use their escalators or elevators BC its an old building and we should use the mall emterance instead. I was taken back by this!! Later that day the insurance company called and the women was so rude and nasty and didn’t want to hear my side. In fact she kept speaking over me every time I spoke. We left off by he saying she has to review the video but she couldn’t guarantee them paying doctor bills. 1month later (which was yestrday) the insurance company called me back and said sorry they are not paying the hospital bill! Even though the manager assured me they would.. I rryed to call the corporate office it rang 3 times and went dead . I called 4,more times and the same thing! I am contacting my local new station first thing tomorrow.!


holly s October 27, 2014 at 1:07 pm

From Saturday, October 25, to the 26th, 2014; I tried countless times to buy some leather furniture I really liked. For every time I got to “check out”, your website would show “limited quantity”; but then it would not let me checkout. Finally after countless tries and picking countless other styles..I gave up. Then I started looking on other furniture websites and the furniture I wanted from your store, kept showing up continuously as advertising. So I went back to your site to try again. After hours I quit.

The next day I again received ads that the furniture was in stock and “buy it now”! Again I wasted the entire morning before finally a help pop up appeared and “Georgie” wrote me to say the furniture was available and to complete checkout. I completed and told her I would pick it up at the store. She called and was told they would not allow??? So when I texted her back, she had hung up and no one would respond on your help line. I proceeded even though I would have to pay who knows how much,to ship.

Low and behold the sale would not go through even though it was showing available. So I called and spoke to a very uncaring, unfriendly, person who said my furniture was out of stock and Georgie didn’t know what she was doing!!!

This had to be the worst on line shopping experience of my life! I took the survey to assure continued satisfaction in the future. I expressed my total desatisfaction and I believe I was called back by the the same uncaring and unfriendly person who said the same thing she said to begin with. Then she adds…”thankyou for shopping jcp…is there anything else I can assist you with?”. I asked how she could ask that as if she’d helped me in the first place. I wondered why she bothered to call…probably because she had to.

I guess jcp runs fraudulent ads so people like me will buy other more expensive items when they find out you don’t have what you advertise. As the matter of fact the ad is still on other stores web sites as of this morning…good thing I already know to stay away. Shame on you jcp!


Victoria October 25, 2014 at 1:07 pm

I honestly don’t know where these other customers are shopping and registering all of these complaints… We have 3 local stores to me here in Chicagoland and I have NEVER had a bad experience with any of them whatsoever in the past 17 years that I have lived here. Everyone is always friendly, helpful, etc. I take my daughter there with me all of the time and she loves the store just as much.

When I was growing up I would always shop at JC Penney with my Mom. Even then, I can not even recall ever having a bad experience.

I liked the pants that I could only get at JCP-THE PLAIN POCKETS. They quit carrying them a while back. These were such a good seller. They could never keep enough of them in stock. Since then, none of the pants fit anywhere near that they should. I am very dissatisfied. Maybe they could find another pair of pants that my fit the description near to them. Everyone wants them back. Also, they need more short sleeve dress shirts for the fall and winter. We live in the south and it stays pretty warm here. Also, the catalogue was nice while it lasted please consider bringing it back. Last of all how about more customer human service, a computer cannot match that. Please reply ASAP, especially on the pants- Remember—JCP PLAIN POCKETS


Tammy October 19, 2014 at 3:12 pm

My daughter and I shopped at JCPenney’s in Leominster,Ma over the weekend and were disgusted to see how ultra thin the manikins you had on display at the front of your store were! Unrealistic and I believe this sends the wrong message to all the young woman shopping at this store! Shame on you!


Nancy October 19, 2014 at 1:00 am

Today was a very disappointing day after being treated with discrimination at JCPenney. The head manager from the jcpenney was very racist, she offended me. I told her that it was not my fault her employees did their job wrong and put the wrong price, but that racist lady exclaimed in my face that I was a lier that I had probably put the price to get it cheap. And she added that her employees do not mess up. Honestly she treated me with so much disrespect just because I am hispanic. The thing that bothered me the most was not that she didn’t let me buy the product to what the tag said, but that she had called me a lier and a thief. In no circumstances would I ever do that, I don’t find a reason why she would react the way she did. Ive been to other stores for example, Kohl’s and if the machine ever marks something else they either let me buy it at the price it says or they tell me nicely and with respect that the employee must of put the wrong price.


Susan Durkin-Altera October 18, 2014 at 1:55 pm

I have been a long time shopper at J C Penneys until the last CEO ruined the store. I would shop at your store more often if would had a decent website. I can’t use your website from my iPad. It is a terrible site. I end up ordering from Macy’s or Kohls or any other store because for example today I wanted to shop for sheets. I tried five times but could not use your site. Something is very wrong with your site. You need to fix it or you will continue to lose business.


Merry Case October 13, 2014 at 1:30 pm

About two weeks ago I lost most of my hair. I have been going to JC Penney the last 3 months and had my hair done by Ingrid. I knew the first time she had dyed my hair but the second and third time I thought she was coloring my hair but after the results of my hair, she has been bleaching for all three months. So two weeks ago I wake up and most of my hair is gone, I have pictures upon request. My sister told me I lost my hair from over bleaching because she had that happen to her too but not at JC Penney. I would like to know what someone is going to do about this because I have been very distraught, upset and not wanting to leave my house because it is such a mess. I have just ordered wigs, about 5 of them. It took me just about all my life to grow my hair where it was and only 3 months for someone to destroy it.
Merry Case


Jacqueline October 16, 2014 at 8:26 pm

Hi Mary,
I am sorry to read about your hair loss and I have had a similar situation. I have permanent hair loss as a result of the negligence of a JC Penny Salon employee.
The JC Penny stylist applied chemicals to my hair in contrast to the manufacturer’s instructions–among other things. My hair went from thick, full shoulder length healthy hair to patchy baldness, thin broken and damaged hair in 3 months. I had to see a dermatologist for chemical burns to my scalp and at the advice of the JC Penny Salon Manager I had a buzz cut–my hair cut to the scalp.
The assault to my hair and damage to my scalp occurred over a year ago and JC Penny has not compensated me in any way. I have a case with AIG who is J C Penny’s liability insurance carrier. AIG has been slow to respond. They have ignored medical documentation, resorted to unnecessary delays, and attempted to manipulate factual evidence to avoid taking responsibility.
I also bought wigs and sought medical and surgical remedies. I have spent more than $6,000 out of pocket (and counting). I suffered a great deal and empathize with you. You must continue to pursue compensation and justice for your loss. JC Penny must be held accountable for the actions of its employees, who are conducting its business– on its behalf. JC Penny must make us whole!!!


linda aragon October 11, 2014 at 1:18 am

I was a loyal customer for some 40 years but stopped shopping at JCP after the new CEO took over. I love the new format and the $ pricing. However, on Mother’s day and Father’s day 20% of the moms and dads that were featured in their ads were homosexuals.
I am sorry, but the homosexual community does not comprise 20% of the population. I am frustrated by organizations pushing the lbgt agenda. They can live as they please if they want but why do they have to try to get everyone else to think like they do.
JCP has been declining since the changes and it will continue until it closes down. I don’t shop there because they “don’t have the clothing styles I like” I don’t shop there because they are pushing their agenda on me and the restof the heterosexual population.


Ruth McIntyre October 8, 2014 at 11:59 pm

What a disappointment!! I’m a long-time shopper (40+ years) at Penneys but not any more. I spent approximately 45 minutes walking through Penneys at Clackamas Town Center Mall (Portrland, OR) looking for clothing items for my husband and myself. In that time, I could not find a sales clerk in any of the departments I was in and was never approached by a clerk to ask if they could help me. I don’t like to shop in the first place so this did not make me a happy customer. I finally asked the lady in the photo “salon” to call a manager for me to speak with. When the manager arrived, I explained my disappointment and her reply was, “well, you know, we’re having problems with our sales staff not interacting with our customers”. No kidding! I also told her that I, being an “older” customer, was having a real problem finding clothing styled for “older ladies”. She agreed that was a problem. No kidding! No wonder Penneys is having problems and their stock dropped 10.88% today! I wonder if Penneys will go the way of Wards and a few of the other “old timers” and close up shop? Looks like that’s what they’re striving for.


carlos vasquez October 7, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Your store 1337 in Downey ca is f*cken ridiculous their slow un professional this is my first time being a member. And I’m regretting joining with u guys I purchase a trio set rings with Lori and she put in the orderr to resize my rings on 9.15.2014. Last week they call me telling me the rings were their I ask the ring size to make sure they said 7 all 3 I told them no the guys were 10 and the girl 8.5 3days later. My ring came to the store but not my girls I’m getting married on 10th this f**ken Friday with no rings I call today and they telling me they don’t know where is my rings only a girl name Marci knows but she works tomorrow as soon I get the rings I’m out of jcpenny ur store is a joke ur company is not well reliable and unorganize I need my rings on Thursday contact. Me at 323 605**** my name is Carlos I will not recommend this store with anybody its bull shit


William October 3, 2014 at 2:39 pm

WOW!!! DON’T BUY ANYTHING FROM JC PENNEY’S IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE IT BACK because if lose the receipt, you may find yourself being denied because you have been put on a black list!!!! I am amazed that JC Penney’s is in financial trouble and NOT COMPLETELY BROKE!!!!! I tried to return some items a couple days ago that I had lost the receipt to. I was told that my return was being denied, but I could call a 800 number to find out why. I called the number and was told an email would be sent to me to explain the reason for denial. I received the email this morning and call JC Penney’s. I was told that I had been put on a black list for returns without a receipt. Okay, now I am really confused! The only returns with out a receipt listed on this report was one back in Feb. of 2011 and one back in Nov. 2011. Apparently two times, PERIOD, without a receipt causes you to be put on a permanent denial list. I was told to call the JC Penney’s corporate office to try to get removed. I was told by the corporate office that it could not be removed. WHAT’S UP WITH THAT!!!!!! Walmart will allow you so many returns a year without a receipt, resetting every year. Shopping at Kohl’s or Old Navy and lost your receipt, no problem, they will give you a gift card for the amount of the return. WHO PUTS YOU ON A PERMANENT BLACK LIST?!?!?!?! JC PENNY’S THAT’S WHO!!!!!! My wife likes to buy things online from JC Penney’s since we live 70 miles to the closest store. There is always something that doesn’t fit tight, or look the way you thought it would and needs taken back. It has never been a problem, because we usually have the receipt in hand, but losing a receipt happens to all of us from time to time. Well, it sounds like JC Penney’s is not tolerant of that. For that reason, Kohl’s & Old Navy, you are going to be seeing a LOT more of us.


Tiana September 30, 2014 at 6:01 pm

I dropped my engagement ring off at JC Penny on Sept 8, 2014 to get sized. My soon to be husband bought the lifetime warranty, however, when I dropped my ring off they printed the PRICE of my ring AND price of warranty (things I DON’T need to know). I was told that it would take two weeks to get my ring back on Sept 23, 2014. Today is Sept 30th and I still have NOT received my ring. After calling and complaining I received a call from the “Jewelry Manager” on Sept 23th to advise that my ring was “misplaced” and once it was found that it missed the shipment and it then sat in the store for a week and corporate received. It the manager then advised that she sent an email to the manager to do a rush job and I would ‘HOPEFULLY” get my ring back “SOON” WTF. The manager ALSO kept saying “Well you dropped it off on the 8th and we are going through a billion dollar merger” I really son’t GIVE A F***K WHAT you are going through I just want my ring back. After my telephone conversation with the ‘Jewlery Manager” she advised that she would have an answer from me FIRST THING Monday morning (9/27/14) and today is WEDNESDAY Sept 30th and i have not heard a WORD from ANYONE. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase ANYTHING from JC Penny and I HOPE and PRAY that nothing else happens to my ring and I have to rely on this sloooooooooow warranty process. JCP has has my ring longer than I have been engaged……Sooooooooo disappointing


DiversityDiva September 30, 2014 at 11:29 am

Trust me, JCP does not care about these comments. It is ran by a bunch of OLD white ppl who have no idea about how the world is changing outside of the country club estates they live in. They have no clue that the racial diversity within the city a store is in should be reflected by the staff members they employ. Most of their in home decorators are nearly retirement age. They are archaic and this is why they will never recover. Not saying young people are where it’s at, I’m just saying old white ppl who were born during the segregation years are not exactly hospitable to the large multi-ethnic shoppers nowadays. This is evident in the all Spanish flyers they sent out. Lmao I guarantee you this idea came from an old white person with a Spanish speaking housekeeper in Texas and thought “I bet if Lupita knew about our sale she would spend some of her money I pay her in our stores…eureka!! I’m going to mail out an all Spanish sales sheet!” You can tell these older ppl just do not want to admit that blacks Hispanics and other nationality people are a huge consumer base. I won’t spend money in any store that I don’t see other ethicities other than white in. Who wants to be associated with that type of stigma these days? I grew up with JCPenneys back when the old ppl still working there were young…it was a cool place. Now they are trendy on paper and old fashioned in the store. Which is easy to tell by the sales or I should say loss of sales. It’s 2014 JCP is far behind. I’m sure they will hire another old white CEO. Since Johnson is no longer there. Even if Macys is ran by old white ppl you can’t tell when you shop there. As a multi cultural family I love seeing all the great diversity of employees they have in their stores… They also are much more fashion forward. Probably Bc their buyers are young and hip and in tune with the public Bc they are not stuffy old country clubbers. That was cool in 1981… JCPenneys was also cool in 1981.


Hazel Cable September 29, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Well I have BEEN an ARDENT WORKER WITH MY ASSOCIATES THAT I LOVE DEARLY at JCP and my CUSTOMERS ALL ARE IMPORTANT they share our WORLD. I am so SORRY that MANAGEMENT at Northwood Mall is not what I FEEL JCP IS LOOKING FOR OUT OF THEIR MANAGEMENT. To Their WORKERS INCLUDING MYSELF . Got an offer to leave on the 28th because i was asked to even though MANAGER DID NOT EVEN MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO PUT ME BACK INTO THE SYSTEM BUT THANK GOD, BECAUSE HE HAS A PLAN FOR ME AMEN!I MY resignation date was to end on 4th of October. I WILL have an ASPIRING LIFE working around GENUINE MANAGEMENT in the future.


Jane Terrell September 26, 2014 at 2:57 pm

Someone needs to update this site. I don’t think Ron Johnson is currently the CEO.


Leah Fowler September 24, 2014 at 6:18 pm

Dear JCPenney,

While I did enjoy using your line of credit shopping at your department stores, I no longer care to be a future customer. I unfortunately have been laid off from the active duty army. Therefore have taken a considerable cut in income. I was also placed in an $18,000.00 debt from the Army, and a $38,000.00 debt to the IRS from ill – knowledge on settlement payments. On top of that I have other smaller debts that are bulging interest from being so far behind. I am going to school full time, have a toddler, and am dealing with a particularly nasty time of PTSD/Anxiety. Your corporation is the ONLY debt that I am being harassed about on a daily basis – sometimes more than once in a 24 hour period. While I understand I am obligated to pay back the debt that I owe you, and I will make the repayment possible WHEN I am able, the amount of harassment I receive from your debt collectors is unbearable and ridiculous. I started receiving phone calls from the first 30 day past due payment I was behind on. Needless to say, this only adds to my anxiety. I would appreciate if your debt collectors would stop asking me to borrow money off of friends or family, it’s rude. I was cooperative in the beginning, trying to work with them, but I’m at the point where I just say: “Sorry, there is nothing I can do for you at the moment,” and hang up.

I recently applied for a part time job at JCP Cortland, NY. I was shot down by your stupid little test which I chose to answer honestly.The manager who had tried very hard to help me apply after your software upgrade would not let me. The reason I am writing this is because all the jobs that I had held before with JCP did not count for anything. I was an excellent employee for your company and was rewarded for my efforts in different states. We were an AF family and therefore moved frequently. My longest stint was at Crossroads Mall in OKC,OK. Then as recently as 2007 I worked part time at JCP Parks Mall Arlington, TX. Now retired and living near Cortland, NY, I was looking only for part time work for a company I knew to be fair and unbiased up until now. Your test is ridiculous and Mr Penney must be turning over in his grave.


Pamela Qarbaghi September 23, 2014 at 12:21 pm

Please bring back East 5th tall plus size pants. I bought six pairs a year minimum from you and often found them sold out so I know they were a successful design. You should not have eliminated the flat front, straight leg, side zip pant from your mail order business. Style number 14J939J.


Donna Kelley September 23, 2014 at 12:01 am

Dear Corporate Executives of JC Penney
I have shopped many times at JC Penney over the years on my visits to the U.S. Thank you for everything I have ever purchased and never had one regret for any item. Your staff always goes that extra mile cheerfully and with professionalism at all times.
The reason I am writing to you is to ask, have you ever considered coming to Canada? I know the Target stores have gotten off to a bump start, but I think there could an easy way to boost the Canadian enthusiasm for Target. But, really I think a Flagship JC Penney here in London, Ontario Canada would be a boost not only for JC Penney, but for our Canadian economy. I know there would be a wonderful expandable market for your company and it could lead to a profitable and harmonious partnering if you would come to Canada, not Toronto, but London, Ontario. We are the heart of the corridor in Southwestern Ontario and your company is the best of the best. I hope you can find it at your convenience to at least examine these possibilities especially here in London, Ontario.
Thank you for taking the time to read my note and again thank you for your wonderful store, your great staff and your steadfastness in the market.


Always, Donna Kelley

To Whom It May Concern:

I have been a loyal J C Penney costumer for many years, but as of September 13, 2014 I may never shop at a J C Penney store again. I was shopping in Columbus, Oh at Polaris shopping mall. I had 2 pieces of jewelry to buy in my hand. I walked to jewelry counter talking with my aunt saying something about checking out a gentleman who worked there acknowledged me by making eye contact as he was standing behind the counter and turned and walked away without even speaking. As I said, excuse me I am ready to check out he walked faster away from me. I went to the next jewelry counter and an older gentleman was helping a costumer on the other side of counter. I sat my 2 pieces of jewelry on the counter and he looked at me and said “are you ready to check out?” I said yes and he said “well you can’t do that here you have to go over to costumer service” and pointed to clothing area. I walked over there to find two cashiers trying to check people out and 15-20 people in line. I was not willing to wait behind people with arms full of clothing items to buy 2 pieces of jewelry. I walked back to the jewelry section and found a lady behind another counter. My aunt who I was with asked if we check here and she said “yes” my aunt then looked at me and said “see I told you we check out here” and then the sales lady said “oh I am sorry you have to go to costumer service line.” I gave the lady the 2 pieces of jewelry and told her that I did not have time to wait in line of 15-20 people and I did not have time to put my jewelry back. I also told her that it was obvious that J C Penney did not want or need my money obviously. She smiled and said she would put my jewelry back. I have always been able to check out in the jewelry department before. If this is a new policy it needs to be handled with more care.

I have had a J C Penney card since I was 20 years old. That is 15 years and I may never it use it again unless something changes my mind. I do not live in the Columbus area and have not encountered this kind of treatment in my area, but it was a horrible experience and I found similar jewelry at Macy’s later that day and had a great experience and even was offered an additional discount because I was using my Macy’s card. It felt like Miracle on 34th Street where Macy’s came out smelling like roses and it is even Christmas yet.

Shavone Allen September 19, 2014 at 12:26 pm

I made an appointment on September 14, 2014 to get my hair done on September 19 @ 10a.m. I showed up on time and my stylist showed up 45mins later??? who does this? I was then asked by the receptionist (which was extremely nice) that my stylist asked her to wash my hair. I don’t know if the stylist has been certified to do that BUT I agree and as I’m doingat the bowl, I notice my stylist wrong someone else’s hair. So I mention this to the receptionist and she states “oh, she had an appointment with my stylist at 11:45… at this time it’s 10:48…Does this makes sense? I’m crunched for time as well, but I didn’t know that I had to mention that…So basically I didn’t get my hair done. I had planned on going out tonightThis is very unprofessional… JC Penny Salon in Joliet, IL. I am EXTREMELY disappointed.


Patricia Spicer September 18, 2014 at 12:35 pm

Very bad experience trying to pick up an order I placed and paid for on-line and shipped to the local store. I have trouble standing and walking, had to search for someone to help me. The items were not in the “system” so I had to stand and wait while the girl searched for my items. Found it, but that was as far as she could go, so she asked another girl. Oh, one of the ten shirts wasn’t with the nine others, so I couldn’t have any.
At home again, without my items I called customer service, they put me on hold until I hung up.
Called the store manager first thing this morning. Surprise, manager won’t be in today. Asked for name and number for regional manager, wouldn’t give it to me, but was told the other item came in, now I could come back “once they get it in the system” to pick them up.
Will I buy from here again? I doubt it. Am I upset? You bet I am!


alicia September 17, 2014 at 4:19 pm

Horrible Service! Horrible Return Policy! You guys did certainly lose a customer. I’m shredding my black JCP card. I have shopped with you guys for a long time now. Never had I had a problem with returns. But the fact you guys were trying to give me less then what I paid for a sweater. I’m getting cheated out of my hard earned money. Ridiculous! Never shopping at JCP again til you make the return policy right. I’m taking my money and spending it at Nordstrom. Get it together JcPenney!


Sydney September 21, 2014 at 9:21 pm

I work at Penney’s and we get people like you every day. If you don’t have a receipt you get the lowest price it’s ever sold for. Maybe you should keep your receipt next time. Also, we can look up your past purchases if you paid with debit/ credit. How are WE supposed to know how much you paid if you DON’T have your RECEIPT. Obviously money isn’t much of an issue if you shop at Nordstrom.

Hailey Milby September 16, 2014 at 11:24 pm

To whom it may concern, please put Hailey Milby as a model for girls clothing in your store in a large picture on the wall. Hailey is on Facebook her mother is Andrea Milby; she has her own Facebook too. Thanks
PS thats not her right email though


Ashley williams September 16, 2014 at 8:31 pm

Jcpenney sucks how they run their stores they lie on honest and good people
And the management is completly unethical and they are petty and dont do any hard work just be all around everywhere they suck


Deborah September 14, 2014 at 2:23 am

I live in Arizona and I am really disappointed that JCPenny’s Outlet was removed from Arizona Mills Mall..!! It was one of our best store there. Many would love to have JCP back!!


Maria September 10, 2014 at 3:02 pm

I live in the Bronx and I recently received an advertisnig brochure at my home in Spanish. I am disgusted not because of the Spanish Language but because it is assumed I am Spanish speaking. The last time I checked, the language of this land is ENGLISH. When I shop JC Penny, it is assumed I speak Spanish. I am called “mamita” “cherida” ext. There are very few Spanish speaking people on my block and we all feel the same. I will no longer shop JC Penny. I cutting the JC Penny card I have.


J. Pantaleo September 9, 2014 at 11:39 pm

I live in Southern California, while I know there is a huge influx of Hispanic people here, I am NOT Hispanic. This IS still the good old USA where English is suppose to be the main language, yet I received an Advertisement in the Mail today and it was ALL in Spanish. Has J C Penney changed its main language to Spanish now? Please do not send me any more mail in Spanish as I do not read Spanish.

Thank you, J. Pantaleo


Michelle September 9, 2014 at 2:41 pm

Huntsville, Al. I would like to see JCP move to a more reputable location. I really do not believe that you understand the effect Madison Square Mall has on your store. We have great new locations popping up around us, yet JCP is stuck in a mall worthy of a flea market. Please update us on new plans that you have to move out and bring the style back to JCP. We have lots of money in this area and would like to spend it in a new JCP location. Looking forward to your response. Thank You


S. Pereira September 8, 2014 at 2:05 pm

To whom it may concern. Freehold NJ 9/6/2014,There a storm passing thru, lightning, thunder storms, flooding rain, power lines down,it was a mess. I was near the exit door with my 3 small children waiting for my husband to pick us up, when I was approached by what it looked like a teenager to me wearing jeans and a t shirt. When he asked me are you a customer her, when I replied yes, I was told in these exact words, YOU NEED TO GET OUT when I questionned who he was he, he told me he was the security there.
I told him to see ID and he said he had it at his desk. i asked to see his ID because I wanted his name to report him because of his unproper way of treating the customers. You are putting out customers and children out into this terrible weather and on top off it you disrespect them by speaking to them like this.. Not acceptable. H refused to give his name. I been a customer for 20 years and have never been treated like this. please find out, who this person was and please address this problem. thank you


Jerry Driggers September 7, 2014 at 10:50 pm

I was In jcp in rockingham nc today and when I walked in the air conditioner was broken. They had put out portable air conditioners to try and cool it off in there. This is not the first time I have experienced this in this store. This makes 3 times I know of. I remember it being like this last year. I also remember asking the clerk last year when were they going to fix it and if I recall I thought she said a couple of months. I thought no possible way could that be. But while I was checking out today I also ask the clerk the same question about when were they going to fix the air and I was told six weeks. I responded and said that makes no since. I also let her know I remember being told it was going to be repaired or replaced last year. I don’t understand that a company as well off as jcp can not fix this problem. You have the money I’m sure. I am a regular shopper on there and I would hate to know that I can’t shop because I’m sweating like a pig. Please look into this case and fix the air. The comments I heard from other customers from across the room was not nice. One man was even frustrated with his wife and they began to argue because of it. I would like to hear back from someone in the corporate office about this znd to know it will be fixed, coz you know I will be going back in there znd I will know if it was taken care of and if it’s hot in there I will just turnaround and leave. Its ashame to the community. Just replace it and let your customers be able to shop comfortably.


John E, Whitley September 7, 2014 at 10:56 am

Dear Sir:
On 8/24/14, I ordered two pair of Florsheim dress shoes thru Cust. Svc. JCP had them on sale, plus 20% off if I used my JCP card. Awesome! I soon received an email informing me of a possible cancellation due to a “credit” glitch, and had to reply NLT 8/214. I quickly called the 1-800 given in the email. No problem I was assured, by Shelia, you have excellent credit since 82′. Again, another email, same problem and another call. Spoke to Supvr. Faye. on 9/4/14, apology given, and will “express” ship my shoes in 2 days! Again, awesome! You guessed it, another email, another call to Cust. Svc. on 9/6/14 and spoke to Credit Supvr. Mike. He stayed on the line and called another number. We both explained the whole story AGAIN! This time, I was offered an additional discount for my troubles. What broke my patience was the lady on this other line repeated my order, and you guessed it, wrong size, wrong color!. I asked “Mike” to not only cancel my order, but cancel my JCP account.
I doubt you will ever allow this to be seen by the public, maybe, but the old saying, “Buyer Beware” is absolutely true in this case. I will order direct from the manufacture, and yes, I will pay more. I would give you our acct. number, but my wife says, not online!

Asilrocks September 6, 2014 at 3:02 pm

I get your flyer with coupons in the mail which is fine if it was in ENGLISH I think it’s totally wrong and rude and how dare you assume that because my last name is Lopez that I speak- read or even understand what any of it is saying nobody in my household does why would you do that. Get your act together cause this just didn’t happen once.

I live in Janesville ,Wi corporate office decided to close our store and I was very disappointed when you made the announcement. No very upset!! I don’t understand why in the world you close a store that has been in a town as long as Penney’s was. I have one of your credit cards but I won’t ever shop there again. I have to drive an hour to get to one of your stores. I have always depended on Penney’s for my drapes would you please reopen for the community we miss your store. We don’t have any other store to go to for things like that with your quality. Hope you make the decision that is best for the residents here!!!!!! We want Penney’s back in our town!!!!!!!!!

On August 9 I ordered a queen size bed set and a matress set. The bed arrived within a week, and I was very happy with for furniture. However, the mattress set never arrived. It is now Aug. 28 and I have placed numerous calls to the Furniture Dept. Customer Service checking on my order. Yesterday they finally told me it is lost, and they will open a case to research this lost purchase. I called today to find out if they located the item, and they told me they won’t even start to look for it up to 72 hours or so. That they have so many lost items they are looking for with cases that were opened 4 to 5 days ago. So now I am suppose to wait till you find all your lost merchandise before you begin to research my purchase. First of all this is the age of computers, and you should establish a system that when an online purchase is overdue in arrival, a pop-up alert notifies a clerk at a computer screen. I would think that could afford to hire clerks to check items before the customer has to complain. If I would never have called furniture to tell them that I never got my purchase, they would not know or care. This item has been on my JCP credit card since Aug. 9. You were sure to get that right.
If the stock holders of JCP want to know why the company is slipping so badly it is because of their lack of business savy. Buying furniture online is a great convenience, but you have to know what you are doing and stay ahead of the problems and complaints.

My order was placed on 6/20/14 for:
8 JCP Home Stoneware dinner plates
8 JCP Home Stoneware salad plates
8 JCP Home Stoneware dinner bowls
1 JCP Home Stoneware platter
2 JCP Home Stoneware serving bowls

The dinner plates, dinner bowls and platter arrived shortly after the order date of 6/20/14. One box of 4 dinner bowls arrived with a broken bowl which I returned and had to reorder. The packaging with the styrofoam was unbelievably messy! It was impossible to get the stoneware out of the box without getting the tiny pieces of styrofoam everywhere!!!! I cleaned it up of course but it was IMPOSSIBLE to get every minuscule piece. A week later I was still finding little bits of foam.

Today I received the 2nd part of my order: salad plates and serving bowls. I opened a box of 4 serving bowls and again saw the awful and very messy packaging. This time I decided to take the boxes out on our deck and hopefully the millions (it seems like millions) of bits of styrofoam will blow away!!!!! The side pieces of styrofoam crumbled when I tried to take them out of the box. I have pictures. Where should I send them?

JCP…..come on!!!!! How does one get the stoneware out of these boxes without creating a major mess!! I love the dishes but your packaging, not so much!!!!!
Well actually, it’s a disgrace to your company!!

I ordered shoes Sunday Aug 17th for $68.89 on Used a Visa gift card in the amount of $50 expecting a prompt for the remaining $18.89 owed. No prompt so I called customer service number in Columbus to give the information to pay the remaining due $18.89. They were closed so I called Monday gave them the story said I wanted to give them my debit card number for the balance as I did not want the order cancelled. No problem they said took my debit card number we hung up. Checked my bank account to find a pending charge of $47.01! Not the right amount! I called back spoke to another person explained what happened told them to just put the entire purchase on my credit card- did not want to risk errors in my bank account. Customer service rep said no problem it’s done. Checked my credit card online- $68.89 charged AS WELL AS a charge for $49.51. Called back the 800 number on my online statement, explained yet again, the lady traced the credit card and it was used by a JC Penney representative to charge someone else’s blinds! Customer service rep called that customer confirmed the customer ordered with her JC Penney credit card but somehow the JC Penney rep used my credit card number. Told me to watch my account for the charge to be removed. I checked today Saturday the 23rd and the charge has been removed, yet now there is an additional charge for $24.85!! Called back today August 23rd spoke to Danielle and she researched -again same customer ordered another set of blinds and IT WAS CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD AGAIN! When I told her this is unacceptable that in the course of a week I have had several egregious mistakes with ALL of my accounts done by customer service reps in your Columbus call center, her response was she would forward to your Loss Prevention department to “investigate,” the charge could not be removed, I would have to dispute it with MasterCard and cancel my credit card because this is obviously not going to stop as it is stored in other people’s accounts in your JC Penney system. To say I am disappointed in JC Penney is an understatement. Even in your recent trying times I remained a loyal customer and have been my entire life. This ongoing saga goes beyond the scope of poor customer service and simple errors. I do not understand how all of these things can happen on one account for a simple online order for shoes. I have spent hours in the past week monitoring my accounts, calling your reps, rehashing this nightmare and as I type this I now have to figure how to end this ongoing saga because I really don’t feel I should cancel my credit card because of the gross incompetence and negligence of your representatives. It appears now I have no choice but to do so to put this to bed so to speak. I feel the need to inform you of one customer’s experience in the course of the past week for a simple online order of a pair of shoes. I ordered shipment to my local store and that was prompt and received the phone call they had arrived. To that end I say it went well. If or when I will be able to clear up the issues with my credit card and your call center remains to be seen. If other customers experience the same baffling errors and runaround I received this week I am sure you will eventually notice in your bottom line. Simply put, attention to your online call center is in order.


jewell Henry August 24, 2014 at 3:19 pm

It is way to hard to order from computer would never let me put in were I could pick
up order so had to pay 8.95 to be sent to home not a easy way to order from home.


conrad bradley August 19, 2014 at 1:26 pm

In the mail today I received a JCPenny Mastercard that I did not apply for. Upon calling the issuer I was told I was randomly selected for a free upgrade to a JCPenny Mastercard but my regular JCPenny card was also open to use. I promptly closed both accounts. Your credit issuer is unethical to put it politely. Not only did you loose a customer who routinely shopped at JCPenny once a month but I plan on sharing my experience throughout social media.


Mariel Rose August 19, 2014 at 12:02 pm

Good morning I know this is something that may be quiet unusual and way left field, but I am sitting here with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart with absolutely nowhere to turn and no help. I am a mother of three very smart impressionable school age children and I need help. I have looked high and low for days and really anticipated to be back to work now but nothing has come up and my children are in desperate need of things for back to school. I am married but my husband is totally disabled and I have no family to help me in the area. It really seems right now as if everyone is struggling to make it. I worked at that company for 3 years and didn’t expect to loss my job at such a terrible time. My kids are so wonderful and deserving. I always have provided for them in the past this will be the first time that my back has been against the wall in this type of way. I normally always take advantage of your back to school sales at the Allen location. It really hurts me to have to sit here and ask for help but it would hurt them more if I don’t. If someone could please contact me even if you can or can’t help I would appreciate it so much. I’m sincere right now I’ve even applied to your company for work. I just need a little help, thank you and God bless.
Thanking You In Advance,

I was in the JCPENNY salon today in Cary, NC & had my hair done by TJ. He did an awesome job & he is the only reason myself & quite a few ladies I know go to this salon. He takes the time to make sure that your hair is healthy & puts 110% behind his work. There are very few stylist in this area that cater to ethnic hair & truly care about his clients. I did have one issue while in the salon that bothered me to my soul. There was a young lady that came in who went to another salon & wasn’t satisfied with her hair so she came in to get TJ to fix it. He patiently explained to her what needed to be done & she didn’t want him to do what needed to be done. Now this man does hair for a living, but you don’t trust what he is telling you? If that’s that’s the case, then why come to him to get your hair done. The whole time TJ was flat ironing my hair she was standing next to him pretty much telling him what he would do & what she was going to pay!!! Who does that???? He calmly kept explaining to her what needed to be done & what the price was but she wanted him to give her a discount because she had a bad experience elsewhere. She even talked to the manager that was working & kept changing up her story. The client stepped out the store to talk on the phone & my mother overheard her telling whomever she was speaking to that she was going to get her way & get it for free. I wanted to tell the manager this before I left but she stepped out if the store before I was done with my appointment. I plan on calling her in the morning, but I also felt that I needed to let corporate know that TJ is outstanding, & I hope that you guys keep him on staff because losing him would be a blow to this store……..

Placed an order for a mattress on 07/04/2014 in store, called customer service on 08/04/2014 to set up a different delivery date. The rep told me they would be able to deliver the mattress on 08/08/2014, I agreed, took the day off work to ensure I was there for pick up. Waited all day on 08/08/2014 and no delivery, no call, nothing. Called customer service and they said the delivery company would contact me soon… Still no call. Called on 08/11/2014 and spoke with a supervisor who said the prior rep never emailed the delivery company and that she had taken care of everything and would call me if anything changed…. 08/15/2014 no calls from anyone. Called customer service again and spoke with another supervisor who had to call me back cause it was taking an extremely long time to figure out. He told me that he had to escalate the issue to Bedding because they still couldnt figure it out. They gave me the number to corporate to escalate the issue. Called corporate and they transfered me back to customer service! Absolutely terrible customer service.

I went to purchase clothing for my children, before shopping I went to ask a sales associate at checkout to see if American Express gift cheques were accepted. I was told that they were accepted. Once I was ready to purchase my items, they took my cheque and wrote all over my cheque and asked me to endorse it. After I endorsed my cheque I was told that they could not accept it eventhough the American Express rep. told them how to run the transaction. Now my cheque is ruined, This was an embarasment. I had the cash to purchase my items but after the trouble I was not about to give them a sale. If matter is not corrected I will take my buisness elsewhere. I think that management needs further training. JCPenney located in Weslaco Texas.

Optical Department
I order’d new glasses on May 14, 2014 at the Fargo ND Store. I received the glasses and the clerk broke the frame during adjustment and had to reorder. I received the 2nd pair and the lense’s were 2 different thickness’s and not a good pair. I picked out new frames and when I called to check on the status of the glasses I was told the lense was on back order. I called again last Friday August 8th and was told they should be in on Monday, Aug 11th, that was yesterday and still no word. So what’s going on ???? I have received glasses from JC Penney before and was satisfied. Don’t you think this is very poor that it has been 3 months and I still do not have glasses.
Beverly Kubela, 701-642-XXXX
P.S. I have talked with customer service before and I thought it was going to be better.


Mel August 10, 2014 at 1:06 am

I ordered drapes for my home from JC PENNY online July 12 .online status: IN STOCK, the next day I received an email its says: backordered, will ship on or before July 20. July 16, sent me a special code for the next purchase. Come July 20 my order is not delivered yet, checked online said cancelled, no email nor any notification sent that it was. Checked online again said IN STOCK . I called costumer service the rep. to confirm the item’s availability said he can’t help. Useless! Ordered for DIFFERENT drapes again 8/7/14 status: INSTOCK, 2 days after I received an email again saying : order cancelled , out of stock. Can you guys make up your mind or at least update your website more often? make sure the items are available before you advertise.I find it misleading and frustrating, I feel like its just a waste of time looking at your products, don’t waste your time, shop somewhere else.


St. Louis, County August 17, 2014 at 4:22 pm

Yes It’s extremely frustrating! As an employee allow me to give you an insight of what
Politics and Corporate / Store Manager Leadership is not happening. In 2013 the Employees of JCP did not receive any Merit Increases in their salaries apparently due to the fact of how Ron Johnson, (the former CEO) financially Disrupted the Company.
This year 2014 our Employees received their Merit Increase Review with the Majority receiving a letter from the Store Manager who makes the final decision stating:
Performance Rating: Performance does not meet Merit Increase eligibility criteria!!?
Let me inform you, “Our” Employees are hard workers, understaffed, underpayed, and not properly trained for their designated departments! One Example:
Women’s, Misses, Junior’s: The floor staff are expected to: Keep the fitting rooms
neat and tidy, return the merchandise to their proper designated area following Cor-Standards, (Sizing and display) Making sure that all items are properly ticketed and priced, Cover front registers when Cashier’s are backed up, and try and help Customers by answering their questions and finalize Customer Service! Is ” One ”
Person capable of performing all of these task in three designated area’s and Utilize Excellent Service to our customers during a seven hour shift? Our District & Store Manager may as will be “Hitler” They have no “Empathy”, no Sympathy they are “Cold”, all they care about… Is how they Represent themselves to the Corporate Office. FYI: On the Majority, Our Merit Increase is based upon Credit Apps. and Online Order’s!! Not Customer Service.. Our Employee’s were all about the “Wow” what happened to the “Wow” The District Manager literally forced- out our previous “Store Manager” Until he couldn’t take any more! “Kudos” to you District Manger.. you accomplished your goal? You’re a Cold hatred “Mr. Grinch!!” and the Store Morale has plummeted into the pits of “Hell!” I would continue however I would be wasting more of “my time,” therefore focusing on New Employment that care’s about their employees (people) and not themselves!! Good Luck JCP


Alan Darr, USN (ret) August 7, 2014 at 12:55 pm

please consider–continuing the line of Stafford broadcloth short sleeve dress shirts. not everyone wants long sleeve shirts. In central florida–the JCPenny stores have about quit carrying the product.
I am a shop teacher–have to wear tie– but long sleeves is not acceptable due to safety.
please continue with a wider selection of short sleeve dress shirts–the Stafford broadcloth seem to be able to take the abuse better. still only last about 1 month of continuous wear but better than 2 weeks with other types of shirts.


jimlietz August 6, 2014 at 1:25 am

I cant understand why the store in Yorktown mall in Lombard il still has last years winter men clothes at 5.99 on the floor . new mens clothes are now coming in for the winter season . they must be blind , the woodfield store is much better run


Judy Ramirez August 4, 2014 at 5:21 pm

By the way, the total was over $1000.00. So, they lost a significant sale. Guess that doesn’t matter either.


Judy Ramirez August 4, 2014 at 5:18 pm

I am very upset with JC Penny’s . We ordered a sofa on6-11-14, and as of today 8-5-14 had heard Nothing. I called to check the status and was told it was cancelled! No one knew when, why or who was responsible. Thank goodness we had not paid for it. When I called customer service they actually ask if I wanted to re-order! Why , so I can wait another 2months for someone to cancel the order?? I knew it would take at least 6wk they should of had the courtesy to at least e-mail or call. I even checked my junk and trash e-mails… Nothing. Had already purchased other things to go with it, so I will either have to return them or hopefully find a sofa somewhere else. Will certainly not buy it at Penny’s .


Mary July 29, 2014 at 2:30 pm

I am so disappointed in JC Penny and the way they do business. As a brand new customer of less than a yr. Only having used their card twice. Paying off the first purchase when I got the bill. They have since ran another credit check on me without my knowledge. Which in return lowered my score. Then they lowered my line, when I called I was treated horribly, receiving a letter today that they cancelled my card and states that they notified all major credit unions of my card canceling. Who does this Company think they are? I would NEVER have done business with such a comany who treats their new customers in such a way. SHAME ON JC PENNY. very disappointing


Jo July 22, 2014 at 5:22 am

I have information on a store manager who just bought his own business in may and is sticking it out at jcp to keep his insurance for an upcoming surgery but other wise has checked out as a manager at jcp are you interested in which store?


Karen July 20, 2014 at 3:44 am

I was going to purchase two things totaling $70.00 but ordered somewhere else because your shipping costs are way too high. You really need to look at using the post office. Seriously, 12 bucks for a two pound or less package is crazy! And if you decide you want to discuss email me. I’m a postmaster of a major metro city and can hook you up with a great sales team!


katie July 15, 2014 at 2:17 pm

Upset about their portrait studios?! Yeah, so am I… JCP doesn’t run the portrait locations, it’s LifeTouch professional photography; NOT that I don’t believe JCP should be doing something about the company, but just FYI…


Chelsea July 14, 2014 at 1:22 pm

I would just like to recognize Jocelyn R at your Memorial city Mall location. We had our pictures taken by her today and she did a wonderful job. She was very patient with my kids, took lots of great photos, and you could tell she loved her job and was good with people. I really appreciate all the time she took with us. Thank you for having such a wonderful import and because of hard we will definitely be back!


Maurice Moore July 13, 2014 at 8:58 am

My name is Maurice a form employee at your store #2690 in Hattiesburg Ms . I was terminated Friday July 11, 2014. I agree with a earlier statement I read managers get to do whatever they wish in this company and play favorites. I was fired for a bad attitude towards my team leader Marissa Hall. A team leader who called me a PUSSY ASS BITCH and my supervisor Xzavier January knew this before she was made team leader. Marissa constantly talks to people mainly me like I was her child are something, and I would talk to her the same way. I brought witnesses to Carlotta Martin my store manager and Ms.Bond human resources who stated that Marissa said she didn’t do things fairly. Marissa sent me home one day a fellow employee said what she sent me home for was a lie. I wrote a 7 page statement in my defence nothing still was done. Every time I brought the issue of Marissa to Carlotta and any other manager it was always my fault never her. So I know how it goes play ball they way or get fired. Most employees at this store know this managers stick together right or wrong. I was told repeated when I said I was gone call corp. Why waste your time they not gone do anything. I see know that was true. Cause twice I called and asked for them to send someone who would be fair to solve this nobody ever came. So can somebody explain to me why action was taken against me and not Marissa Hall?


Lisa August 12, 2014 at 4:04 pm

You need to call the Human Resource Department and make a official complaint. If that doesn’t work the write one of the CEO directly and certified the letter. Don’t e-mail …. send a letter. You get more response by letter then e-mail or phone call because then they know your serious.


Terry Edgar July 10, 2014 at 10:31 pm

I have been trying to contact my local store in Littleton, CO. No one answers the phone in any department and there is no options for leaving a message. How can a store manage to stay in business if you cannot contact anyone? It is unfortunate that this store owned my business just a few years ago. They deserve to go out of business with their pathetic business model and lack of customer support!


rita c ricci July 9, 2014 at 3:08 pm

For the past month or so I have been inundated with junk email from jcpenney for everything from automobiles to male enhancement products. i receive at least 15 ads per day. I am assuming that jcpenney has sold my email to these merchants. i am spending time each day unscribing from these mailing lists. I would like them to stop this now. Very angry that jcpenney would do this and will not shop there again unless all this junk mail stops.


Jane July 8, 2014 at 9:03 pm

Las Vegas,NV Boulevard mall – I want to laugh when they say they are hiring when they only give us 2 days a week. You are lucky to get 3 days at this point It’s sad and disgusts me. Better management needed.


Denise O July 7, 2014 at 8:34 pm

BEWARE if you are ordering from!!
I placed and order and was very careful to click that I wanted to pick up at the store, to avoid shipping fees. The shipping fees were removed and the total was recalculated. I clicked to complete the order and everything was correct. A few minutes later I checked my email to see my receipt and the shipping fees were added back in. This has happened to me before and the operator apologized and I was told it would be reported and corrected. Sorry,, but you won’t get to try to cheat me a third time! I’m onto you! I just wonder how many other people have been overcharged and didn’t realize it until it was too late. I’m no lawyer but I’m pretty sure this is illegal on JCPenney’s part.


Dawn Tomkiewicz July 7, 2014 at 12:02 am

I got a coupon in the mail with my last bill. The coupon read “Memorial Day Home Sale” with savings from 6/26-7/5. How does a huge national corporation let this kind of error make it to printing?? This should have read “Independence Day”. Nice slap in the face and tremendous lack of caring shown to our current and former service men and women, not to mention the general American public. I just opened this account, this was my first bill. I believe that I will be closing this account after this!


Brandi July 6, 2014 at 7:34 pm

I went to JcPenny on the 4th of July and I usually go there and have no complaints but I was actually shocked with the lady at the register she had an attitude and just snobby! People like here should work with costumes


Dennis Schaefer July 3, 2014 at 1:48 pm

I have been a Penneys customer since I started training and working for them in 67/68 in Waterloo, Iowa. However I ended up going a different direction.
Just went to place an order and use my Penneys card for an additional 20% off. I also got a gift card for fathers day which I knew I could not use with the promotional code. My question is why can’t I use my gift card with a promotional code? It should not have anything to do with the promotional code. The gift card is all ready paid for and Penneys has the “cash”.
Do other stores such as Walmart, Target, Kohls, etc. treat their gift cards the same way?


Dennis Schaefer July 5, 2014 at 10:24 am

Another way to put it I guess, is that my daughter gives me a gift card at Christmas and also on fathers day. Maybe I should just have her send me cash instead. That way I could use the cash, which would have been a gift card, and can also use my promo, penneys charge card, and get the full benefit of both. My statement will reflect the amount of the gift card, but at lease I get the benefit of both. Or else I guess I could just use the cash at another store.


Dennis Schaefer July 9, 2014 at 10:20 am

Still waiting for the reply you promised me JCP.


dorothy fleming July 1, 2014 at 1:50 pm

my account was closed today by GE Capital retail bank who handles the accounts for Penney’s. I hate GE Capital, try to reach someone on the phone to discuss an issue is impossible. I have had many bad experiences with them. I travel often and I set up an online account in Jan 2014 to have balance paid in full each month to avoid late charges and my concerns abount credit.
An an error was made online with the account info and payment was not accepted. It took weeks before I was advised it was past due and bank denied payment. As soon as it was brought to my attention the payment was taken care of immediately.
I was told this happened 2x in a 12 month period and therefore my account was closed. . I made every effort to speak to a higher autority at GE capital and JC Penny’s customer relations and the response was the same. I am very angry since I have been a customer for over 30 yrs. and a good customer. My account was always on time and all this happened since I went online to make certain that my account was taken care of when I travelled. I will not shop at JC Penny’s again since I believe they could have looked further into all my years of payments and realized the error was human and I was not avoiding my responsibility with payment and this issue could be resolved by me.


Diane Bowles June 27, 2014 at 7:18 pm

I purchased a full sized mattress, box springs and bed frame from J.C.Penney, June 3, 2014. Delivery was scheduled for June 10. When the day arrived, only the bed frame was delivered. The mattress and box springs arrived three days later, which is when I discovered that the bed frame was a dangerously converted Queen sized set. The box springs and mattress sit on wooden slats that were installed when the frame was delivered. You can see the floor tile when looking down between the mattress and frame along the side and bottom and the foot of the frame sticks out approximately 5 to 6 inches on either side.. I sent a letter to Debra Berman, SVP of Marketing, June 13. However she never responded to my letter, nor has her assistant, Adella Acosta, responded to my telephone call. As a last resort,I went back to Penney’s, and was advised that only a technician could determine whether the frame was indeed unsafe and that he, the technician, would call in 72 hours. Now its June 27th and no technician. After charging over $1,400 on my Penney’s card, I still do not have a bed in which to sleep, because I, trusting Penney’s got rid of my previous bed prior to shopping. I am 74 years of age and had a double bypass a few years ago. If that mattress would fall through the wooden slats, I honestly don’t know what could happen. Someone, somewhere needs to help me


Annette Harvin June 23, 2014 at 6:55 pm

I was assured by various employees in the credit department ( Tanya, Mary, Serena , Tiffany) over the phone that 1) they would send me copies of my monthly statements for the prior two years 2) would take care of the $2,300.00 charge that suddenly appeared on my account and all associated fees . When I ordered from JC Penney it is via the net and never for any large amount such as this. They are LIARS .n
None of what they stated they would do to rectify the situation has been done . Now the have allowed the account to be referred to credit collectors. I have no way to speak to the actual people in JC Penney. This is just to warn others the unfair manner JC Penney handles their customers. Please forward this to as many Facebook users so that they will be aware.


Mike Mauer June 22, 2014 at 8:23 am

April 2014 we ordered 2 living room chairs from JCP. We paid the deposit and the balance was due upon delivery. The chairs were delivered in May but one was the wrong color (gray instead of blue). I refused shipment and was told they would be shipped in two weeks. No chairs yet but my AMEX card was charged for the delivery. We disputed the charge with AMEX and the store sales person said they would have to cancel the order to get a credit on my Amex account and then re-order it again at the same price. I got the one credit but the store still has not refunded my initial deposit . I also want to re-order the chairs (price protected) but won’t until my deposit is returned. Why does JCP make it difficult for customers to do business with them. All they had to do was credit my Amex card for my deposit and other payment made and write up an order for replacement chairs. JCP has to keep the customer out of the loop with the manufacturer because the customer had nothing to do with the shipping error. If this cannot be resolved next week, I will be contacting my local TV stations asking for consumer help and small claims court to get my money back be and be price protected on the replacement order.


Matthew Schafer June 18, 2014 at 10:56 am

To whom it may concern, my name is Matthew Schafer on Tuesday June 17th at approximately 5:30pm i walked into the JcPenney store on a mission to bring my broken bracelet in to send out for repair. I do have a care plan on the item and i just sent it out about a month ago for another issue and it came back repaired perfect with no issues. With that in mind I approached the fine jewelry counter where I seen a couple ex-coworkers (I am a former employee of this store) i was talking to them for about 5-10 minutes. I was also browsing to possibly purchase an item if one happened to catch my eye. While I was browsing i was notified that the Loss Prevention Manager Stacey Brinig Baker did not want me at the fine jewelry counter.( I was terminated back in march for a violation of a store policy which is ridiculous with no warning or anything which is why NYS sided with me on my unemployment claim) After i was told that i was very upset I left the store with out having my item sent out for repairs. Now when I purchased this bracelet with the care plan I was told at any time to come in to the store if anything happens and it will be sent out and repaired at no cost to me. Having said all that do you not see a problem with this situation? This all occurred between 5:50PM and 5:57 on Tuesday June 17th 2014. Something needs to be done because apparently in fine print you forgot to put (excludes former JcPenney Associates.) I was treated absolutely horrible I’m disgusted with how Stacey tells me to leave the fine jewelry area. That is singling me out. I may be a former associate but at that time I’m a customer that needed to use the service that I paid my money for under the care plan. This whole incident is 100% awful and completely unprofessional for a manager to act liked she did. YOU do not treat customers that way it’s unacceptable. To sum it all up in a brief conclusion.

Former associate who came to the store to have my bracelet sent out and repaired. I had a care plan. While at fine jewelry I was told that Stacey Brinig Baker did not want me in the jewelry department and that is denying me a service that I have already paid for. So something needs to be done immediately. You can contact me VIA Email ( or preferably by phone (315)-534-XXXX ( You can call any time 24/7 365 days a year ill pick up the phone.)

Dear CEO’s of JC Penny:

On May 24th, I placed an order online for a mattress, frame and bedding. The frame arrived and when I opened it to prepare for the delivery of the mattress on June 14th, there were only 2 wheels instead of 4 to set up the frame. I called immediately to ask them to simply send me 2 more wheels. Customer Service said no, we will pick up the one with wheels missing and send out another one, next Friday. They said they guaranteed all wheels will be included. I am not so sure.

I work 7 days a week and had to take off for the delivery on June 14th. I cannot take any more days off in the summer. So, the bed arrives, but without the box spring. I had called 2 weeks prior to the delivery to make sure a box spring was included. The furniture dept. looked up my order #2014-1446-2013-2783 and said, of course it is included. I said, “Are you sure? If not I would like to add a box spring to the order.” He said, “Yes, I am sure.” The mattress was delivered without a box spring.

I immediately called the furniture department. I was so angry, not only can I not use the bed frame to set up the bed, but no box spring, and I had put off having the person who was coming to sleep that night for two weeks until the bed came. Now, she couldn’t stay on the floor as she is too old and cannot sleep on the floor. The furniture person tried to get me to order the box spring, but I was livid and not going to order another thing from JC Penny, as it was already a fiasco and costing me more money. He tried to tell me I had a frame, so why did I need a box spring? Then he said, wow, you got a great deal on the frame, and that’s when I started yelling at him. He called me an idiot, and I hung up. I proceeded to call Customer Service and I told them about his comment, and though they were upset, they failed to help me resolve the issue of the box spring.

I have always bought beds from Macy’s and have NEVER had such a horrible experience as this. Besides, the bed frame was ALWAYS included, and not a separate payment. Also, I can get a mattress and box spring TOGETHER for $197.00 right now, on sale from $449.00.

Not only did I lose money by having to wait for a delivery, I had to put up my elder relative in a hotel a few towns away. It is inconceivable to me that I would be called an idiot by your salesperson, and that JC Penny doesn’t take responsibility for this error of missing box spring. At least, send me a box spring that your furniture person told me was included. I am also going to go to the Better Business Bureau with this if I don’t get a response. Obviously, calling your Customer Service number doesn’t resolve a thing.

We received a coupon for $15discount but when I went to use it to purchase some athletic shoes I was told that the coupon was only good at the dress shoe department. The coupon did not make this distinction. I find this to be a gross misrepresentation of what the coupon is supposed to do. I did not think JCPenney practiced this type of misleading advertising.


Jayme Brace June 10, 2014 at 6:33 pm

Just received my online order and it was not my order! This is the second time this happened! I needed the items on my order for this weekend! The customer service rep from Ohio, gave me my options, asking me to take the wrong order back to a’s mistake and I should make a trip to return it? Then we find out the dress I ordered is now out of stock and discontinued. Says they could take 25% off a different dress. Told me they have to pay for the shipping now so they are eating that money. When I asked if that’s the best they can do he accused me of wanting free stuff! I asked to speak to his supervisor and I was on hold at least 15 minutes. And he would not put him on the phone. I asked for his name and all he would give me was Scott. I spend a lot of Money at jcp and he’s causing me of wanting free stuff! I just wanted to be compensated for their mistake. My total call was 51 minutes! A waste of time! I have 2 small kids I needed to tend to but instead I was stuck on the phone and got no resolution. Think I’m going to be taking my business elsewhere.


Claudia gonzalez June 6, 2014 at 12:16 am

This is to the CEO of jcpenny I would like to file a complaint in 2010 me and my husband
Bought our wedding rings we also included a lifetime protection plan we have
Had our rings cleaned numerous times since we got them just recently
They declined to clean them because the band of my ring didn’t match
To my ring and I didn’t know they had sold me the wrong set since I figured
Jcpenny employers knew what they were doing when I went back to talk
To the manager to fix this problem she did not even come see us which
I find is a waste of time to have a manager not to spare a little time
To solve a problem this is why I’m writing to you please help me resolve
This problem and get the right set of rings after all I payed for them
So I think I have every right to get what I payed for
Thank you

Michael W. Kramer (up your pathetic rear)

I had to recently decline a job offer at your Rio Grande, New Jersey store. The reluctance of management to work with one’s schedule is abhorable. The HOSTILE situation Shivon McCarty created by spewing word vomit about me on my first day of training to a member of management named Diane Chester and Diane’s acceptance and tolerance of lies created what would have escalated into a HOSTILE work environment for me. I am too old for this crap. I go to work to make money to support my family NOT to be put down and spoken ill of by a dysfunctional bully of epic proportions. For management to tolerate such bad behavior is a weakness I CANNOT and WILL NOT tolerate by any stretch of the imagination. I am quite positive you have had more than one issue in other stored regarding managements playing of favorites and not doing anything about bad behavior. I am old enough and smart enough to know to pick my battles. The battle with Shivon and Diane is one I choose to avoid. Frankly, I don’t care who they do or what they do I simply don’t want to be their next victim. What I would like to know is what you intend to do. At this point I am well aware it is their word against mine and that they conspire their evil little plans and stories to coincide with one another’s and since I have declined position of employ my word may not mean a hill of squat to you. However, I would like you to please explain to me (and not in the beat around the bush calm the water terms management is so comfortable using) I am a highly intelligent human being who deserves to be treated with dignity and respect although I doubt I will get any from you since you allow poor behavior to run your stores I do NOT expect much from you in return. Word of advice…if you want this company to recover pull your head out of your butt and look at the store level for that is what is killing your company.


KNR June 3, 2014 at 3:45 pm

I was a t the valley River location in Eugene Oregon and was appalled by the clothing worn by female employees. if you can’t squat down without half of your crack showing you should wear higher rise pants and longer shirts to work. This is unacceptable as is allowing employees to chew gum on the floor, smack, crack, slurp, smack, crack, slurp…..


Kw June 1, 2014 at 3:25 pm

The store in pikeville ky is about the rudest bunch of workers! Asked us to leave the store because we pushed a buggy in and the reason why we had a buggy was because was have a 1 yr old! The lady in the store who’s name was DD followed us around the whole time! I will not be shopping at anymore jcpennys no matter what! I don’t understand they was a lady who had a stroller pushing it around in the store! They r no difference! But I’m calling corporate to file a complaint!


KNR June 3, 2014 at 3:39 pm

Buggies and strollers are used for shoplifting all the time. Some parents do not care they put their children in the middle of their crimes. So are you saying that they should not have theft prevention? I was in retail for years and was amazed to the many ways people shoplifted. If you are innocent of any wrong doing, then it should not bother you that theft prevention was doing their job.

I purchased a ring in Feb of 2013. This will be the 4th time I will be sending it in for repair. The diamonds keep falling out. The last time I had to take it in I asked for a refund I was ignored. I’ve called the store in oskaloosa with no return call called head quarters with no return call. Now I’m a little pissed off. This ring cost 1302.99 in total. I think I could have gotten better quality from Walmart super center. Actually I know I could of.

Plano, Texas 75024

VIA FACSIMILE: (972) 431-1362

RE: why JC Penney is a joke

Mr. Ullman,

One only needs to Google JC Penney to read how badly JC Penney is performing for its customers, its employees and its stockholders. My recent experience legitimizes the notion that ‘one can lead the horse to the water but one can’t make it drink’. Is it rhetorical to ask if you understand I am referring to JC Penney as the horse – and in many instances the other end from the head!?!

I am a recent college graduate with my first job. A teacher. My salary is respectable; I have perfect credit, if a bit limited (1 credit card). I am moving into my first apartment and I wanted it to be furnished by Michael Graves. The best I could do, and afford was to go shopping for his items that are exclusive to JC Penney. I was thrilled to find so many on sale today. My thrill ended there. At the prompt from your pop-up windows, I applied and got approved for a JC Penney Credit Card. It was very attractive in that it would give me another 25% off my just under $500 order.

The JC Penney staff (or outside vendor if that is what you use) would be best described as working in the sales aversion department. How many consumers are interested in a $100 initial credit line? That is what I was offered. Seriously, what can one buy with that? I could have put it on my regular credit card but I wasn’t given that opportunity at this point because I was “in credit not in sales.” After spending 30 minutes picking the items out, another 30 minutes to apply for credit and then call in, wait on hold and repeat all the information, I gave up and told the ‘sales averter’ to close the account with its niggardly approved credit limit. Only then was I told, ‘if you want a credit increase, I have to transfer you to another department’. I wanted to scream – I just wasted an hour of life I will never get back.

Mr. Ullman, I am young and full of pleasant ideals and high expectations. I am a consumer. Companies like JC Penney that fail to recognize that consumers have choices will fail its investors, its employees and its customers. I will buy my housewares elsewhere online. I felt inclined to write you for two reasons: I have been waiting for assistance during the time I typed this letter and, after reading about the high hopes for your stewardship of JC Penney out of the misery from your predecessor’s restructuring, re-branding and price schemes that drove customers away, I thought you’d want to know first hand how you lost a customer at the very beginning of my life buying cycle. For no reason but indifference. At the beginning of the phone call, I heard “these calls may be recorded”. I encourage you to go listen and hear first-hand.

My mother is employed by the JC Penney store in Kokomo Indiana and has a workmens compensation claim that has been going on since 09/02/2011. The claim # is 30110929160-0001 sedgewick is in charge or this claim, and has done a terrible job taking care of it. They have switched the claim from person to person and always say that the department is being reorganized and that people have been shuffled or quit or were fired. They have been dragging along as our mothers condition has not been improving. She has a persistant cough and dizziness and headaches caused by exposure to a white substance on nike tee shirts.

we have been lied to, put off, talked down to, and pushed asideby sedgewick. Sedgewick has been unbelievably negligent in this case and very unprofessional, they claim that this is JC Penneys fault, that Penneys changse things all the time and tells them what they can do. My family cannot believe this is true this is why I wanted to E mail you for an answer.

We want to settle this case with Penneys so we can get our mother care through her family doctor
and non sedgewick doctors. This has been a nightmare for us going through them for medical care. I could write a book about everything that has gone wrong with this case. In short everytime it looks like it is getting somewhere the representative gets fired, moved, or quits. Our mother is 80 years old and still works and is loyal to JC Penneys. An 80 year old long term employee should be honored by any employer. Penneys has not been loyal to her, they have let her down and have been disrespectful to her. She has been treated poorly in the store since this happened over two years ago.

I have called the Personal Department several times about this case to let someone know it is not being handled properly and have not recieved much help. The last time I called i spoke to the manager of workmens compensation dept. and he seemed irritated that I called.
Thank You Mr. Ullman for your time and a response to this E Mail

Dear Mr. Michael W. Kramer, COO, JC Penney Corporate Office; I and my family have been a customers of JC Penney’s for 60 plus years. In the past I have truly enjoyed being a customer of Penney’s. Penney’s product and Customer Service was always number one with our family. Penney’s was outstanding, but within the past 5 years has truly declined. I have limited my shopping to very few items because the merchandise has changed that is not meeting Penney’s standards that I have been accustom too. Most recently, I had a very disappointing experience with Penney’s Optical Department. I purchased two pairs of glasses from the Optical Department a few months ago for my sister Glendean Walker. My sister began experiencing problems with the glasses, the tint caused a glare, the lens were supposed to be scratched proof lens, lens continued to fallout of the frames, and the frame caused pressure points near my nose and she was unable to keep them clean. Upon returning the the glasses to the Optical Department, the Sales Associate, informed us the tint was coming off the lens, and the frame was damaged. Today, I received a call from the Optical Department and I spoke to another Sales Associate, and she informed me that the lab informed her that there was no problem with the glasses and in order for the repair to be completed, I would need to use the Protection Plan I purchased and the cost would be $65.00 plus, for the repair. I feel the response I received from the representative is unacceptable, and the rudeness of the representative was unnecessary. I realize the Associate has been with Penney’s for a long time, but rudeness is not necessary when the customer disagree.
I also, would like to comment about the current quality of the merchandise. Most of the merchandise does not stand up to the past quality for Penney’s. I purchased several items of clothing that lost it’s color, that came apart after one washing.
Penney’s carried past products that the quality was outstanding. I purchased several suits for church and work, that held their shape and color, that my niece still wear them, and its been over 13 year and they look great, nothing is out of place, and the color is great.
I realize Penney’s is trying market product that would cause a high cost for the customer, but to cheap is to cheap.

Thank you for your time and understanding.

The company does not give recognition to hard working associates. Managers play favorites and employees do not get any monetary compensation, salary stays the same forever. We also get a lot of complaints and demands from supervisors and such like Christy that came to the store to supervise our work when her store in meyerland is even a bigger mess. They change policy rules all the time, like the two people per cage, now they want one person pushing cages that weight a big deal just to finish faster. The schedules are changed constantly with out a twenty four hour notice. If it continues like this we are gonna have to start a union to protect our rights. All of this is happening at the memorial in Texas store by the way.


Brenda May 19, 2014 at 11:11 am

My daughter owed me money and was paying me back by paying money online to my JC Penney account. Well,her bank didn’t process the payment right away,so long story short, the payment to JC Penney failed to go thru. Twelve days later (my payment is now late) I get an email from them saying the payment did not go thru. So I get online right away and pay it from my own account. Well JC Penney took away my credit priveledges forever! I talked to 2 different people,one was very rude. To no avail! I am upset!


KNR June 3, 2014 at 3:43 pm

Sorry to say, it was your bill and it is your responsibility to make sure the payment is made. Your daughter should have been directly paying you and then you paying your account. This is how our family has done it for over 25 years.


Sharon May 19, 2014 at 11:04 am

I was given an egift card, but have not received an email form the company with the account information. I have contacted the 1-800 number several times and was told that they would send me an email with the information need to access my egift card, that never happened. Another time when I called, they informed me that something was wrong with their system and that they would send a new email to me with the information that I needed to use my egift card. Several days later I have yet to receive any emails from JCPenny. So once again I called the 1-800 number and this time the person said that I might want to write the egift card number number down, because the system shows that the card was purchased and is available to use. So now that I have a hand written (long) account number, I know that when I go to the store to purchase something that the sales clerk will be confused and unaware of how to call anyone for help. But, yet Pennys wonders why they are losing business. So much for wanting to keep customers. Don’t go through the trouble of purchasing a gift card from them on line, go somewhere else that is willing to assit the paying customer.

The worst place to take a portrait picture is the JcPenney in Richmond California. They are so unprofessional! They do not answer their phones and making appointments is useless because they don’t keep to the appointment time. We waited 50 minutes even though we came on time. Our appointment time was 1:50 pm and we didn’t get served until 2:40 pm. When we finally took the pictures we were rushed and our faces weren’t well seen as we went back to view the pictures. I got into confrontation with the manager because she wanted me to reschedule my appointment or wait until everyone is done to retake another picture. This is my daughters graduation from the university. We didn’t have any little kids in this picture. When we finally retook the picture the manager had already left for the day but secretly told one the employees to only take one sitting picture. I’m VERY disappointed, if i knew i wouldn’t have wasted my time. After all I’m paying for this service, as far as i’m concerned they should be fired, all three workers. JcPenney needs to clean house with the portrait department. As for recommendation they wont get one, all my friends will hear this story. Grading their services i will give it an F in everything they did. I found out that they were booking people ten minutes apart including people with children which takes more time.


Susan Aragosa May 16, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Hi Mr. Ronald Johnson…I just wanted to let you know how much I have been shopping at Pennys over the last 6 months and why, as opposed to Kohls…first of all, my mother preferred to shop JCPennys but I always got a better deal at Kohls…I am a very frugal shopper on a tight budget as well as a 55 yr old female who likes to stay in style as a substitute elementary teacher…when you brought back your coupons for $10 off,,,etc…and fabulous sales, I found myself refurbishing my wardrobe from JCPennys! Fun, colorful and stylish clothing that was right for my age group! (I have walked out of Target too many times as I find their clothing cheaply made and overpriced.) I have been buying things at Pennys finding I am getting better deals than Kohls! The sad thing is, I used to take my mother to Pennys but she passed away from cancer this past October. I miss shopping with mom at Pennys but I think she is with me in spirit when I go there! I have had mainly very good shopping experiences in both Pennys with no complaints…I continue to tell all my friends and coworkers to go to Pennys and check out the deals and the clothes! Last week I added up my buys to be $175 before the deals and coupons…but I paid $49 with tax! I got 3 shirts, a handbag and a wallet for $49! Thank you and keep sending me those coupons and penny reward money that I used today! Sincerely, Susand and her mom, Marilynn


Andy May 16, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Y’all need to send the dike manager at the Tuscaloosa store back up north very unprofessional and rude!! Gonna fire the best hair dresser y’all have been there 20 something years!! Total bull s***!! Roll Tide!!


Marge schofield May 15, 2014 at 5:22 pm

I think penny’s is doing a great job with providing women with comfortable and stylish clothes. I stopped shopping at penny’s when coupons and sales were discontinued. Now that the “old” penny’s is back, I’m a customer for life. Thank you..

JC Penney Corporate,

Your new commercial being shown on NBC mobile app is offensive to me as an American. I live in a English speaking country and want to listen to English speaking commercials. If you have to show a Spanish speaking commercial, show it in Spanish speaking countries.


Lisa May 26, 2014 at 8:56 am

It is unfortunate that you lack cultural competency. This country is made of people from all over the world, many of which speak a myriad of languages. Latinos generate billions if not more tax dollars in this country, in addition to their lions share of profit for every industry. Don’t you enjoy the benefits of those dollars at work? Well good for JCP for marketing to enormous customer base and the bottom line of the company, as well as one that keeps Americans employed. Unless you are a Native American your ancestors most likely came from another country as invaders or immigrants who spoke another language. It is unfortunate that you lost your native language or don’t respect your forefathers or those rich in culture and heritage. May I recommend you spend some time on or get the genetic testing which shows the background of your ancestors who most likely were not of English proficiency. Maybe then you can grow into appropriate cultural competence and you will not express your ignorance so disrespectfully. If you are a person of faith the shame on you for having less respect for the wonders of the work of your creator. Signed a proud Latina, born and raised as an American citizen, who is well educated, bilingual, loves her heritage and is culturally competent!!!! May God bless you.


Glenda Thomas May 12, 2014 at 8:29 pm

My sister was in JC Penney at Memorial City in Houston, Tx this past weekend. She was in the ladies greasing room and heard a mans voice. She hollered at him he was in the ladies fitting room (thinking he had made a mistake) and she quickly dressed and got out of there. She then went upstairs which only consists of women’s lingerie and household furnishings. She went into this dressing room and as she was undressing she heard a man enter the room and was talking. She hollered at him and he told her he would leave as soon as he got his stuff together. She came out and spoke to a manager and was told this is acceptable per corporate policy!! She explained they cannot tell men they can only use the men’s dressing room!! Is this correct?? I’m disgusted!! I’ve shopped at Penneys for 50+ years but will no longer spend a dime in store or online if this is correct. I’ve warned my family and friends to also not shop there til this is resolved and we put men in their dressing room and leave women’s for just that, women!! What’s next, can men join the women in the women’s restrooms??

Pls respond ASAP as I am totally on a campaign to get this knowledge out even if I have to go to the press.

Mr. Ronald Johnson,
JCP Home Store located SW 107th Ave & North Kendall Drive in Miami, Florida. The women operating the cash register when you enter the store, need a good dose of customer service. We live in a very diverse world these days and Miami is a melting pot. Unfortunately, the feeling is, if you don’t speak Spanish, you don’t get the level of customer service you should. Several weeks ago, I had had a conversation with the woman who is the store manager. I guess my complaint fell on deaf ears. I would appreciate it if some one in your office would contact me (305) 299-XXXX.

Thank you,
Maralyn Grosswald

I have done my clothes shopping, specifically jeans and shorts, at JCPenny for as long as I can remember. I have ways been happy with the products, until recently. I purchased multiple pairs of Arizona shorts and after only wearing each one a few times the buttons popped off of every pair. It’s not because the pants are too small, it’s because all the shorts are pieces of crap with buttons that are barely sewn on. I would think that a company that is supposedly in financial trouble would sell decent products to loyal customers, however I guess I was wrong. I will not be shopping at JCPenny anymore since I wasted over $60 on shorts that all are ruined after a couple wears.


Heather ramirez May 8, 2014 at 9:14 pm

Hi my name is Heather and I have by ana products for the past three years. I buy the same thing over and over her $6.99 T-shirts and every color and in bulks. I’ve spent tons of money on her T-shirts and finally I went this year to pick up my large amount that I always buy and it was a different fabric. I always buy her T-shirts that have the tight stretch fabric . When I try to call JCPenney’s and asked what was going on they just said that they would send my complaint and nobody has ever contacted me back and I have been 4 months ago. I recently sent a message off to the JCPenney on Twitter and they said that they would send off my messages as well with no contact back. I’m very frustrated because this is the shirts that I always wear I have always bought them and I buy them in large amounts in use them all the time. every photo you will see I am wearing one of her shirts even her fancy shirts. Is there any way somebody can contact me and let me know if the fabric is coming back out Or has she stopped using it. Thank you

To Whom It May Concern:

First I must say I do not agree with your employees being paid on commission, if that was to be an added bonus that would be great but to make that their primary source of pay as hard as those girls work-then if they do not make their goal they are paid min wage-that does not seem hardly fair and you wonder why you have a high turn over and no one wants to work for JCP-Salon, you do not even offer them health insurance-Shame on you.

Wonder what the rest of the public would think of this-
I was not informed of this information by an employee but by a close friend applying for a job in the salon area.

I witnessed something in your Paducah KY salon over the course of the past few months.
I have worked as a beautician for many years and I can not stand to see another beautician try and steel customers from their co-workers-THAT IS SO WRONG. That same will put down the other girls work just to get a person to see her. Then she brags about not working on Sundays because she goes to church-that is no reason, you can come to work after church. That is also not fair to everyone who has to just about every Sunday-she should also have to work on a Sunday. While in the salon she was over heard talking about Sunday May 11 that even though she had no kids, she would not work for anyone-it was Sunday and “I am off on Sundays”-Does JCP really want a person like that representing them. I have seen some really hard workers your salon, one is a young girl with long blonde hair, she is always working hard and doing what she can to please her customers and the little dark hair girl next to her is a hard worker and so sweet as is the girl with different color hair and the African American girl. Really sweet girls but with the way they are treated by JCP and their co-worker it is beyond me why they stay.

It seems the manager plays favorites and that that one employee can do whatever she wants and the other girls just have to deal with it. Is the manager discriminating against the other girls? One would hope not that could be trouble. I had my mother in the salon the other day and a male manager came by and took pictures of the female employees-that made me and my mother very un-comfortable. I wonder if those girls know their rights when it comes to discrimination and sexual-harassment?????

I am not sending this to cause anyone to loose their job, I do not want that, your policies need to change-esp the way you pay your employees and offer them some added benefits like bonuses or health insurance and employees need to be treated with respect and customers should not be lied to or taken advantage of or be in pictures (if they are) without their permission!

An unhappy customer-who just might end up sharing this with others on Face Book, Twitter, and any other public social media.

I visited the JCPenney Portrait Studio at 6301 NW Loop 410, San Antonio

Texas, 78238 (Ingram Park Mall location) on May 1st, 2014 for an appointment

at 3:40pm. I was there with my 2 year old son and 6 month old daughter, and

we were the only clients in the studio for the duration of our visit. I do

not remember the photographer’s name and it does not tell me her name on the

receipt or order summary.

While taking pictures, my daughter pulled and broke the chain on a necklace I

was wearing. It is silver with mother & baby elephant charms embedded with

Swarovski crystals and is very special to me. When it broke, I took it off

and placed it in my purse. Later, when I got home, I looked in my purse for

it. It was not there. I emptied the entire purse and it is nowhere to be

found. I also checked the diaper bag I had brought with me to the studio, and

I looked all through my car’s floorboards and seats as well. The necklace is

gone. The only time I ever left it unattended at all yesterday was in the

room where we were taking the portraits with the photographer. I had to leave

the room several times very briefly in order to keep track of my son because

he was playing in the hallway and in the dressing room. The only other person

in the entire studio was the photographer. I had no other valuables with me

at the time, I do not carry cash, and nothing else is missing. After the

session I went directly to my home.

I have tried calling the studio several times during hours of operation. It

took an entire day to get a call back, and all the woman said was she could

not find my necklace in the studio and she would talk to the girl that took

our photographs and call me after. I never got a call back from her. I have

called again and left messages with my name and phone number asking to speak

with a manager or supervisor of some kind. I am very upset about this. I do

not want to accuse someone of theft, but the circumstance is extremely

conspicuous. And now no one will respond to me. There has been no attempt at

all to help me. I will be leaving a negative review for this location and

will not be a returning customer. I still have to return to pick up my

Picture CD on May 10th, and will be requesting a refund of my sitting fees to

make up for a portion of my loss as well as my complete and utter

dissatisfaction with the customer service these employees have provided me.

Thank you,

Heavan Hart

Today, I was very disappointed when I attempted to use the latest JCP ad coupons. The coupons states $10.00 off a purchase of $25.00/ $10.00 off $10.00 or more on apparel, shoes, accessories, fine jewelry and home; or an EXTRA10% off watches, furniture, mattresses and custom blinds and shades. I was told in the store by a member of management (store # 2942) who’s name is unknown since she was not wearing her name badge: that the watches I attempted to purchase were considered fine jewelry but I could not receive the full advertised discount. Therefore, I made a call to the corporate office and spoke with a young lady by the name of Lisa and was told a different story than the previous story. I am glad that JCP is evolving and making organizational changes to remain profitable but I hate to see that it is at the expense of their loyal customers. FYI JCP quit sending coupons that has contradictory wording your dedicated customers like myself just want the use of coupons to remain the same regardless of your new useless rewards program.

It was ordered online!

The store can take back online stuff but customer service can’t take care of anything from the store?

I am laughing.

And the last thing I said in my communication was, “DO NOT keep my email and do not send me any email.”

The salon in Mokena, Illinois has the worst management, Wendy is rude, ignorant and VERY insensitive; she cares only of herself and her needs. She not only speaks rudely to her employees she also belittles them in front of customers and makes them feel like they are worthless. She has lost good employees because of her faults. Instead on giving her employees the drive to improve and be interested in the customers she increases the negativity of the environment. I think it needs to be explained to her that “Negativity breeds negativity” – its about numbers – that is understood – i think it would be wise Wendy if you made things about the “Team” Positive, there is positive ways to produce more business and, you are really going about this the wrong way. It’s your “team” that will bring in the customers – not your negativity. Another note…people don’t like being lied to.

.Saturday 26th 2014. I made a trip to JC penney which used to be my favorite store. There was always a great selection in the Misses department but not any longer. My favorite jeans is St. John’s Bay. They always fit nice, I could always get them in short length, and there were always a nice selection to choose from. What did I find today? Not much. I asked the clerk where the St. John’s Bay jeans were and she pointed to the bottom shelf of a display of tee’s. there were 2 styles, skinny and straight leg. No boot cut, no relaxed fit, no choices in color, nothing. The selection of tops was no better. What I found in the misses for tops and spring sweaters and such looked like they belonged in the juniors section. What happened to the 30 – 50 age group? you know…MISSES sizes? I am not going back, there is nothing for me there.


Vincent April 21, 2014 at 2:24 pm

Some kinda of way i am not sure yet but a SCAM!!! is going around using JCPENNEY as a front, HOW theses people got my social i do not know. but i do know they have have and they try to use that to make you pay this make believe over due bill you have with the store. They tell you your going to be summon for court and your bank account frozen. SO PEOPLE BEWARE!! As soon as i know more i will post.


katie hodge April 21, 2014 at 9:59 am

When you are competing with Macy’s and Dillards, you really need to take note of what makes them successful. I shopped with my daughter yesterday and recalled what made me discontinue shopping at Penney’s. The lines. Lack of registers in departments and having to wait forever in a line to pay for some item. If you are going to be in the game,
you really really have to set up registers in more areas of your stores…….


JRM April 26, 2014 at 8:54 pm

And a better selection!!!


Anonymous April 20, 2014 at 8:17 pm

I would like to say that as an employee at JC Penney, as an employee in retail, we endure so much from most customers and it’s sad how most people are and it’s really sad when we have a policy to go by and when customers refuse to understand that they want to call corporate and of course lie and corporate gives them what they want. To me that really defeats the purpose of having store rules and regulations, especially when it comes to coupons or return and even exchanges and they refuse to pay the price difference or think because they used coupons from months ago that they execute the same coupon on a whole new If that was the case, every customer and associate would do this same thing everytime we shopped and used a coupon. It’s ridiculous and it’s embarrassing when we say one thing about how the policy is, the customers don’t like it and wants to get their way and then call corporate and they honor the problem. In reality, you’re losing money and defeating the purpose of having store policies. Most customers put us retaile associates thru so much. It’s not fair!!!


Dylan April 19, 2014 at 6:12 pm

I went to JCPenny earlier in the week and the sales associate failed to take the anti theft devices off my products. I understand mistakes happen we are just human, but the sales associate was so busy trying to get me to sign up for their credit card that I feel he was unable to do his job correctly. The guy needs to understand what the words NO mean. I told the guy not once but three times I didn’t want the stupid card. When I found he left those devices on I was pretty mad. I went back did not get a sorry or anything went to go complain to the manager but she was too busy running a register to aid me. I’ve spent $500+ in the past 12 months there, they wonder why they loose sales and have to close locations, well that’s a good indication why. I can’t wait to see JCP fail, they have lost their sense of customer service and in this market customer service is key.


you're a joke April 27, 2014 at 10:12 pm

love how you “can’t wait” to see thousands of people lose their jobs over your 1 poor experience, mature comment, a**hole


Lynn April 19, 2014 at 10:49 am

A recent visit to the salon in Lanesboro, MA has made me question why some people are hired in management positions just to belittle the employees they hire. I witnessed the manager keeping the door open while reprimanding an associate allowing everyone to hear the one sided conversation. The young woman was accused of a situation that happened outside the work place by other associates and when she tried to share her side of the story she was cut off and was told how immature she was and how she wasn’t cut out for the career. The manager would not allow her to speak and just continued to belittle her. This behavior of this manager is uncalled for and being a manager myself I was ashamed of this lady’s behavior. Hiring young new hair stylists or and any young person is rewarding; at least it should be. As a manager you are able to shape them, teach them, coach them, give constructive criticism in a way to improve their skills, not kill their dreams of becoming successful in their new career. As far as the fellow associates they should be embarrassed of their own actions to sabotage one of their co-workers love for the job in order to make themselves look good. It disgusts me. I hope this is not a common way that JCP promotes their management teams. From my visit to the salon the young woman had a great personality and is an asset to the company. Some people are not cut out to be managers!!! These young people are our future….give them a chance.


Vanessa Figueiras April 17, 2014 at 10:46 pm

Let me just say I will no longer shop at J C Penney. I was given a beautiful pair of earrings from a friend she was trying to cheer me up as I have cancer. Well the earrings are to heavy and I went to J C Penneys to either exchange or get store credit as I did not have a receipt. The jewelry is brand new in the box and in the bag. I was not asking for money just store credit and was told they could not do anything. I have never had this problem at Sears, or Macys so from now on I will no longer be a J C Penny customer. So if you wonder why your company is doing bad look at your customer service practices.


Heather ramirez May 8, 2014 at 9:20 pm

Did you take this to any register or to the jewelry department? Cause any register has the right to turn away but the jewelry department does not. They are required to give store credit only by the cost it was that day not the cost ur friend got it for if you do t have the receipt. You needed to get a manager. Some people don’t know the policies.


mary neuman April 16, 2014 at 3:56 pm

I am totally disgusted to find out JC Pennys gives out my information. I just got a call from Stonebridge Life because of my JCP charge card account.
How dare you share any information! As a customer I “trust” that all, no matter how insignificant the information is, would be kept PRIVATE. I don’t appreciate being set up for any scam that comes along because your company is more concerned about making the all mighty dollar at the expense of your customers.
Dissatisfied customer, Mary Neuman


Alejandra April 14, 2014 at 8:16 pm

I had an appointment at the portrait studio and was 10-15 minutes late. When I arrived, the girl working refused to take my family and I in. I told her we would be willing to wait since we were all ready and she wouldn’t do it. We walked around the mall to see if there were any other portrait studios and decided to go back to reschedule our appointment and the studio was closed. I guess the girl wasn’t willing to stay an extra 15 minutes to help us. Now I understood why she refused. I want to share with JCPenney that I used to work for State Farm Insurance and there were times when I would walk back into my office, turn my computer back on, and help a customer who was late for whatever reason(life happens).Not because I was told to do so but because I believe in GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE! I won’t be going back to this studio and I’m sure your worker couldn’t care less. However, I hope this complaint will reach someone who actually cares. I have been there before but loyalty meant nothing!


VM April 15, 2014 at 1:22 pm

That’s horrible! Because it’s not about the convenience of the customers at JC Penney, it’s all about the convenience of the employees. Customer are supposed to make their job easy, I guess.


you're a joke April 27, 2014 at 10:15 pm

its super unfortunate that apparently only YOUR time is important, running late on a scheduled appointment time and expecting other people to be inconvenienced because of your lack of courtesy? okay


VM April 14, 2014 at 4:38 am

I took my daughter to JC Penney Portraits studio for her 7th birthday picture and spring class picture on April 11, 2014 at 3:40 pm. I have been taking my daughter to two different JC Penney Portraits Studios in Las Vegas, NV since she was a baby. We used to live in Las Vegas and the JC Penney Studios where I used to take my daughter always gave us good customer service experience. So I became a loyal customer to JC Penney Portrait Studio after they have gained my trust and respect. That is why when my family moved to Colorado, I immediately looked for another JC Penney Portrait Studio so that I could continue the pictures for my daughter’s special moments, just like when she was a baby. Unfortunately, I haven’t been getting good customer service experience at the New Center Point JC Penney Portrait studio location here in Colorado Springs, CO.

Though I haven’t been satisfied with the New Center Point location since the very first time I took my daughter there after moving to Colorado Springs, I tolerated the photographers and the manager because this is the closest JC Penney to the air force base of where we live. The photo shoot at this location is always rushed. They even rush the customers to select their pictures right away. It didn’t matter if they were busy or not. The allotted photo session is all the same. I don’t know if this is JC Penney’s policy but this alone ruins the experience for the customers. This is not a work of a professional photographer. Taking pictures should take time. Selecting the best pictures takes time. It’s a process. Customers should be able to enjoy the photo shoot and should be given enough time to select the pictures without being rushed and being pressured to choose the pictures they want right away. JC Penney photographers are supposed to be professionals, as they claimed, but there is nothing professional about the employees from this location at all. I know JC Penney cares about customer satisfaction because I see it when I’m shopping at the store. There is always an associate on the floor greeting every customer and they are always offering their assistance. This is why I started shopping at JC Penney just for this very reason. I’m the type of customer who value companies that value their customers. I recommend good companies to friends and families. But I am also the type of customer who tells family and friends and social media when I have a bad customer service experience with a company. Unfortunately, JC Penney’s great customer service does not extend to the studio. Besides from my dissatisfactions with the New Center Point in the past, the last two photo sessions of my daughter was the worst. I wasn’t planning of bringing my daughter back to this location anymore but the pictures was for her birthday and I just renewed our membership again back on April 20, 2013. So I decided to give the New Center Point location another chance last Friday on April 11, 2014.

The first worse experience we had was back in October 2013. I brought my daughter in for her second grade photo. The photographer at the time, Stacy, took the required information from me including my membership information. I didn’t worry about my membership at the time because I knew I just renewed it back in April. But after I selected all the pictures I wanted, I was told that my membership was expired. Even if that were true, Stacy should have let me know before the session and not after. I tried telling Stacy that my membership couldn’t be expired because we were just at the studio a couple of months back and that I just renewed my membership that year and the year before. So I started questioning her and the studio for making me pay for membership every year. But she wouldn’t hear it. Rather than listening to what I have to say first and actually looking into the system to find out what had happened, she humiliated me in front of the other customers and turned me away. I tried telling her that maybe they got my name wrong, as they have done in the past, but she wouldn’t even try to help me. I even told her that my name was under different names because they kept misspelling my name and last name in the past and that I have been trying to get them to fix it each time I come in but they always tell me that the name didn’t matter. Stacy was already focusing on the next customers without even trying to help and solving my issue first. So my daughter and I left. I have never been humiliated in my life! But, just to prove Stacy wrong, I came back within an hour with the last photo proof receipt from our last visit back in April. On that photo proof it shows that I just paid my membership on April 20, 2013. This time Joanne, the store manager, was helping me because Stacy was already gone for the day. There were no other customers in the studio and most of the lights were out already, including the ones inside the studio. Joanne and another associate were just sitting on their chairs talking to each other. After I told Joanne what just happened, I asked her kindly if she could retake the pictures because I didn’t want to purchase the pictures that Stacy took. I told Joanne that I didn’t want to be reminded of the horrible customer experience I had with Stacy every time I look at my daughter’s pictures. But Joanne was quick to say no. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, especially from a manager. I asked her why, she told me that they don’t take pictures after 5pm and that everything is shut down after 5pm. Joanne asked us to just make another appointment for some other time. I told her that it was impossible because we were going out of town for my daughter’s Fall break and that I don’t understand why she couldn’t just take the pictures again rather than making us come back. I reminded her about the inconvenience she was putting me through. But Joanne was adamant about it and gave me no other choice. Rather than helping me since we were already at the studio, a customer who is in front of her, her solution was to turn us away and make us come back. Even after she saw my daughter who was dressed for the pictures already. As a manager, that was the best solution she could give me. She did offer to take the picture though if I rescheduled and offered a free 8 x 10 for my trouble. Offering a free picture does not solve the fact that Joanne’s lack of knowledge on customer requirements is horrible. Really, JC Penney! Is this how you train your managers? Joanne also lied about Stacy’s name. She told me that the photographer that took the picture wasn’t Stacy, when in fact I asked Stacy for her name.

We did manage to come back and Joanne did take the pictures. Though she took good pictures, I still didn’t like the fact that she made us come back. I saw that as a power trip on her part. She made me feel that she had the power to do that to me and there was nothing I could do about it. She thought right. I felt helpless because I had no other choice. She did manage to figure out the problem, my name was under different names. I have been trying to get them to fix my account but they never did. Does it really take that long to figure out your own system? Would it really be too much for Joanne and Stacy to go above and beyond to help a customer in need?

The second worst experience we had was on Friday, April 11, 2014. Nikki was the photographer and she was working by herself. When my daughter and I got to the studio, there was only one male customer with us but he was only there to select the pictures that his daughters took early on. When I made the appointment on the phone, I specifically said that the photos are for my daughter’s birthday and class picture. Upon our arrival at the studio, I told Nikki again that the pictures were for a class picture and birthday but to put more focus and spend more time on the birthday pictures because I just wanted something simple for the class picture anyway. Nikki took a total of sixteen pictures for both the birthday and class pictures. Out of those sixteen pictures, I only liked one picture from each session because the poses weren’t that great, my daughter’s smiles weren’t natural, and most of the time my daughter wasn’t even looking in the camera. This is the first time ever that I had few pictures to choose from. I normally have a hard time selecting the photos I want because my daughter takes great pictures regardless if the photo shoot is rushed, the poses are so generic, or the photographer is not even that great. But this time, I was so disappointed and upset because out of all the photos that Nikki took, I could only pick one from the birthday and one from the class pictures. I didn’t mind the only one picture I picked from the class picture because I only wanted one good pose to make a package from it in the first place. But I wanted a 10 x 13 multi pictures from the birthday shoot because I always get a10 x 13. But I couldn’t have the multi pictures because there was only one good picture I actually liked. For the birthday pictures, Nikki took seven pictures of my daughter and one picture of the balloon that we brought with us per my request. She couldn’t even take a good picture of the balloon. I wasn’t satisfied with her work so I kindly asked her to retake the birthday pictures and to not do the generic poses that they do so much because I already have those poses at home. I kindly asked Nikki to be creative with the poses and to give my daughter something new. I also asked her for a prop, like the number 7 for my daughter’s age or something nice to use for the pictures. There was no number 7 so Nikki spelled out the number. I asked for unique poses, she just had my daughter lay on the floor behind the word ‘seven’ and that was it. She claimed that she took good pictures the second time but those pictures didn’t load for me to see, unfortunately. But rather than just retaking the pictures again, Nikki tried calling the help desk and she wasted a lot of time on the phone just to be put on hold from around 3:49pm until after 5pm. But my daughter and I still waited patiently. I don’t know why Nikki just didn’t retake the pictures because that would have been a faster solution. We came in at 3:40 and got done before 3:50 including the retake. By the time she got a hold of somebody from the help desk, she was also taking personal calls from her cell phone. Her cell phone on the counter kept ringing while she was at work. She even asked the person from the help desk to hold because she had to take her personal phone call. That was so unprofessional.

The help desk couldn’t help her because they couldn’t find the retake pictures. Meanwhile, the next group of family after my appointment already showed up for their 5:20pm appointment. I thought they didn’t take pictures after 5pm, according to Joanne from my last visit. After seeing the next group, I knew Nikki wasn’t going to help me anymore. I was right. Nikki gave me two options: 1) To take the pictures that she originally took or 2) To make another appointment. I told her that I’m not making another appointment because I just pulled my daughter from school an hour and half early just to come in for the picture. I told her that I’m not available to come back again because I don’t have the time. But she kept insisting on the two options she was giving me because she had to help the next customers already. What about me? I asked. She asked me what I wanted to do. I told her that I wanted a retake because we were there first since 3:40pm and that she needed to take care of the issues with us first before she takes on another customer. She kept insisting that she couldn’t do that because if she retakes the pictures again, it would push the other family’s appointment back so she gave me the two options again. She even asked me if I wanted to talk to Joanne on the phone. I said no because I knew Joanne was not going to help me. At that moment, I was already upset. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Nikki called Joanne again to tell her that I wanted a retake. Unfortunately, Joanne’s solution to a dissatisfied customer is to make them come back. Joanne could care less about the inconvenience she is causing her unhappy customer. Joanne could care less if the customer walked out upset. Apparently, customer satisfaction is not guaranteed at this location! Nikki even had the audacity to blame my daughter for not looking in the camera. Is this part of their training, JC Penney? To put the blame on the customers when things go wrong. I told Nikki that it was her job to make sure that my daughter was looking in the camera. That is why she has a high-tech camera with a play back button to make sure that her customers are looking at the camera. She said she couldn’t see behind the camera and when she looked at the pictures, they looked fine to her. Then what is the purpose of the monitor inside the studio? Rather than just retaking the pictures quickly, which usually take less than ten minutes anyway, Nikki wasted a lot of time arguing with me and kept giving me the two options I was supposed to choose from. Those were the only two options and they weren’t going to make me a satisfied customer. In the end, I relented because I knew I wasn’t coming back to any JC Penney studio anymore. Nikki and Joanne made it clear that they weren’t gong to help me. I also felt bad for the family after me, whom I had to apologize to. I was so upset and embarrassed by this experience. However, I was more hurt because my daughter’s pictures didn’t turn out the way I wanted and I felt forced to buy something I wasn’t happy with. So I asked Nikki for the free pictures in exchange for my inconvenience. But those free pictures didn’t make me feel better when my daughter and I got home. I was still so upset. The whole experience still upset me throughout the weekend. There is no amount of free pictures that could replace the hurt and the horrible service that Nikki and Joanne provided me.

I had something fun planned for my daughter after her photo appointment. I didn’t plan on being at the studio for two hours so I left my daughter’s snacks and water in the car. My daughter waited patiently with me and didn’t complain at all even when she started getting hungry and tired after 5 o’ clock. But Nikki and Joanne could care less about their customers. All they care about is getting as many people. Shame on you, JC Penney if this is your policy! Your New Center Point location does not care about customer satisfactions. They don’t care about delivering quality service. They make it known to their customers that they are more important and that customers are supposed to take what they are given.

JC Penney, your manager’s solution to a customer’s dissatisfaction and inconvenience is to make the customer reschedule again. Shame on you for hiring a manager like Joanne to run your studio. There are plenty of managers out there who are more qualified than her and more knowledgeable about customer requirements. Do you really think that you won’t lose prospects and loyal customers over a horrible customer service? What ever happened to taking “stunning portraits while delivering a delightful guest experience, JC Penney? There was nothing delightful about Nikki and Joanne. Where do you find the people you hire to manage your studio? What’s your customer service policy? Do you even care about customer satisfaction? How do you expect to make loyal customers when your own employees can’t even deliver a quality service? Obviously all JC Penney cares about is how many customers they can take every ten minutes. No wonder why they rush their customers. Nikki ruined my daughter’s 7th birthday picture and the experience. Thanks to her, that’s what I’m going to remember when I look at my daughter’s picture. According to your JC Portraits website, “jcpportraits is committed to offering their customers superior service and providing high-quality, professional portraits while Creating Memories for a Lifetime”. Your New Center location really proved to me that this is a lie. I won’t be returning to any of your locations. I will surely not recommend JC Penney to anyone anymore.


Alejandra April 14, 2014 at 8:17 pm

I completely agree with how rushed the staff is. The customer service and experience are awful!


VM April 15, 2014 at 1:19 pm

It’s hard to find good customer service nowadays, sadly. But JC Penney studio takes the lead on poor customer service.


Karen April 13, 2014 at 11:52 am

I started shopping here when my husband lost his business. (4-5 yrs ago) I found that you could get wonderful deals, and it was an easy shopping experience. Now, you can not even find anyone at the checkout counters. (memorial City Mall location-Houston Texas 77024) When the line was over 5 deep, I asked for a manger. The woman that showed up was VERY rude and unprofessional!!!!! In addition to that horrible experience, I got a $25 late charge on my credit card. I have written to them explaining the circumstance (I was out of the country & my debit card that I use to pay my bill was deactivated due to the Target breach), and they will not waive it. So due to these horrendous experiences, I can certainly understand how JC Penny has alienated their customers-count me one and out!!


Edi April 12, 2014 at 8:52 pm


I shop at the Bay Plaza, Bronx NY office. While the store is undergoing changes in many facets of its operations, I am wondering why there is no assistance in the fitting rooms. It has become a “free for all” and oftentimes the mess can be overwhelming, not to mention the confusion on whether the rooms are occupied or “do I just go in?”. Hopefully this is only a transitinal issue.


Kara kimbrough April 12, 2014 at 10:50 am

I love JCP I buy clothes and shoes etc….I also have been getting my eye brows done here for many years and I went yesterday and this lady put some extremely hot wax on my face and burned me I called and spoke to the store manager who assured me that the salon manager would be calling at 10am which she never did so I called them at 1045am and spoke to a very nice girl who said her manager was very well I was burned but it was her day off and would the stylist who burned me to give me a call when she gets in,

Pranav Dudhoria was telling me severally that he resides at Shyambazar requesting you to please confirm whether he resides at Shyambazar or not if you don’t want to give complete address then please give me the name of area only so I can go to that local police station and lodge an FIR by showing the voice clip recorded in my mobile showing the incoming call from his number only.

I am requesting you to please co-operate with me and oblige.I won’t leave him because he hasn’t cheated money but time and other job opportunity also which I had explained him severally but he repeated told me that rest assured you are joining CONCENTRIX(IBM) without any round of interview.

Last but not the least in earlier days he told me to get typing speed of 36 WPM but later told me no speed is mandatory and there will be not be any round for you as I am recruiting you in capacity of permanent contractual employee.

Respected Sir,

The conversation held on 5 th April’2014 duration of 8 minutes 20 seconds audio clip which I had already forwarded to one of the HR associated with NEHA SHARMA in that conversation PRANAV DUDHORIA was apparently telling me that I will arrange in writing or Email me through his immediate boss on Tuesday or Wednesday i.e. 8 th or 9 th of April’2014 in Concentrix(IBM) to assure and ensure you that you are joining on 14 th April’2014 is this not the integrity issue breach of code of business principles yes it tantamounts to FRAUD.

Thenafter on completion of that phone call I called him back just after two minutes on 5th April’2014 audio clip of 1 minute 36 seconds in which I am asking for my money back Rs.4000/= in a polite manner which he was suppose to give on 1 st April’2014 entire sum of Rs.4000/= but I was requesting him over phone in that conversation to give me Rs.2500/= first on 6 th or 7 th April’2014 but he was giving me excuses and showed problem of money in hand to give me back.(CONVERSATION CAN BE FORWARDED ON DEMAND OR ELSE I CAN AGAIN VISIT IBM CONCENTRIX OFFICE ONCE AGAIN TO SHOW).

Respected Sir,

This is to bring into your kind notice that Mr.Pranab Dudhoria whose mobile number is 9062205374 claimed himself as permanent contractual employee of Concentrix(IBM) for the term of 5 years of contract.

We met each other at one cyber cafe in Ganesh Talkies,Burrabazar,Kolkata and conversation started then he assured me job in Concentrix in Dubai telecom in BPO and I have mailed my CV to him on the following Email IDs.

on 6 th March’2014 and thenafter oftenly he was having conversation with one of the HR naming madam NEHA SHARMA severally related to me and assured me for interview would be held on 29 th March’2014 and this would only be formality and confirmed me date of joining from 1 st April’2014 and taken Rs.3000 as credit from me.

Thenafter few days he told me that NEHA SHARMA advised me to join in KPO in WELLS FARGO BANK process one of the top notch MNC bank in USA and salary will be higher in that process which would be Rs.20000/= per month and DOJ will be 7 th April’2014 in UNITECH INFOSPACE building and asked me to make passport size photograph with WHITE background only stamp size as this may be used for making ID card.

One thing I want to clear that everytime he was calling NEHA SHARMA in front of me.

One fine morning he called me and told I have very good news for you and you will start jumping when you will hear and that day he came to me with a bearer cheque of Rs.21000/= and firstly he started giving me story that you needn’t to appear for any one of the round and you will join directly in the said banking process and asked me to keep the bearer cheque and give Rs.6500/= as credit thenafter,I have refused in polite way that I don’t have that much money to give credit maximum I can give you Rs.500 or Rs.1000 maximum so he told me to give Rs.2000 but at last I have given him Rs.1000 because I had doubt that I have never seen such type of recruitment in any of the company without appearing for any round and direct joining.

I know the thing called employee referral where relaxation can be given upto certain extent but that doesn’t mean direct joining.

I was in regular touch with him as I had doubt related to date of joining because I was sure that he will tell me that DOJ postponded and that has happened on 5th April’2014 when I had called him but he has not picked up the phone thenafter few hours he called me and whatever he told me over phone It was recorded in my AUTOMATIC CALL RECORDER and I have sent the entire conversation through bluetooth to one of the HR met personally today in DLF,2ND FLOOR with NEHA SHARMA and explained the entire issue to all the HR persons there.The recording was SELF EXPLANATORY AND APPARENTLY SHOWS THAT HE IS GUILTY(FRAUD).Prior to that today I had went to BRITISH COUNCIL office but they asked me to leave the office without hearing anything.

In that call he told me that sorry I couldn’t call you because of pressure of work but your DOJ will be 14 th April’2014 and venue of joining and training will be BRITISH COUNCIL office Camac street office,Kolkata and you will get appointment letter with retrospective effect i.e. 7 th April’2014 because you people are ready to join and this is company fault so they will consider the same I have never seen such thing in my entire career that company issues appointment letter with retrospective effect without actual joining of employee.

I have asked him to pay my money back as he assured me at the time of taking that he will pay off on 1 st April’2014 but failed to pay even a single penny till date and now he is giving me excuses.

I have worked with HINDUSTAN UNILEVER LTD. and VODAFONE as well under direct payroll with a proven track record 4 times CEO award winner and my total experience is 10 yrs.(8 yrs. in sales and 2 yrs. in purchase) and don’t have any experience in BPO/KPO/CALL CENTER.

I have appeared for IBM BPO in April’2011 but that time due to stability issue my candidature was rejected because 1 yr.6 mths. was my avg. rate per co. otherwise entire round I have cleared in IBM interview process that day.

I am unemployed since 13 th Nov’2014 and I am doing my freelancing since then and parallely looking for good break since then.

I have told him that I have got job in SWASTIK PROJECTS (P) LTD. and DOJ will be 18 th April’2014 but he assured me the way and deceived my job opportunity which I have sacrificed for this job and my money.

Last but not the least that HR people told me that Pranab hasn’t taken money from you for getting you the job but this is also the fact that a person who is stranger to you and knowing him for few days only why I will give him such amount of money maximum I can offer him Tea and Snacks which hardly amounts to Rs.50/= only on good and NEW relation with STRANGER.



I am not requesting you to realise my money from him back but take appropriate action against him utmost urgently otherwise like me others will also suffer and brand image of such a top notch MNC company IBM(CONCENTRIX) will be hampered.

I am humbly requesting you to kindly look into the matter at the earliest and oblige.

Cannot find an email or direct phone number to get your opinion or complaint heard, had a horrible customer service on April 1st, JCP photography area employees are very rude, have no manners and do not know how to resolve issues I left my phone number and name trying to talk to the Manager from that department and still have not heard anything back from them. They do not have clear communication or work ethic skills and I left that department without making a scene after the horrible treatment they showed as I was with my children but if pisses me off that they can treat customers in that way, it is not my job to figure out or tell them what to, or how to do their job but if they are not going to do it how it’s suppose to be done, seeing as that is why they get paid, maybe they shouldn’t be doing it. I will not go into big details as it is apparent they don’t read this crap anyways.

I placed an on-line order and instead of paying the $8.00 shipping fee, I decided to pick-up the order when it came in at the closest Penney’s store which is about 25 miles. Since it said shipping was FREE to the Penney’s store, I planned to possibly shop for other items at Penney’s when I picked up my order. When processing my order, it showed an $8.00 fee under shipping and handling even though I checked I would pick it up because that was FREE. As it turns out, it is NOT FREE, they still can charge a “Handling fee” even if you pick it up. The “Handling fee” to the store was the same as the shipping fee to my house and I, of course, had it shipped to my house. I feel this is false advertising to charge a handling fee equal to the shipping fee when they say it is FREE to pick up an order at a store. JC Penney’s is STUPID to charge a handling fee to pick up an order in their store – they loose that customer coming into the store and probably make other purchases while there. No wonder their business is declining, their management lacks any common sense.

Hi I have a couple things I would like to talk about first thing is I was in the store last week they had a nice Adidas hoodie for 39.99 the next week them same hoodies where up to $60 but on sale for $45.Theses are the type of things that make people not want to shop/support you guys and it’s sad because I can remember as a kid going to jcp every week end then going out for breakfast so it’s something I identify with and to see it going down hill this way is my second problem is your limitations you guys put on your egift card.We usually give our nieces and nephews and other family/ friends jcp gift cards but was told by a worker to try out the egift cards so I did only to find out later that they can only use 2 or 3 egift cards at a time.This seems pretty silly to me why would you guys want to limit how much I’m willing to spend it just don’t make sense. So can you tell me one good reason why I should continue to be a customer because from my point of view you guys are running more people off and I’m a pretty loyal person however if I feel someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes I’m going to call it out so I look forward to hearing back from you guys


Kenneth April 4, 2014 at 2:53 pm

It doesn’t pay to pay your J.C. Penney’s bill in advance. I recently had a problem with my account I had been making double payments on my account for the last 3 months, which was more that the $25.00 min, payment. I was paying a $100.00 at the store every month toward the month due bill and toward the month coming up. I found out that even though I was making these additional payments and asking the cashier to apply the payments as such. I was getting credit for trying to be a good customer, but was still charge a late fee. I have a very small balance and my min. was always $25.00 dollars so I decided to make more than min and double up on the bills to keep from having to drive out to the mall every month. This meant nothing to J.C. Penney’s! You would think a business would appreciate a customer paying their bill on time and in advance, but i feel like I am being ripped off cause they take my money and still charge me a late fee so my bill never gets paid down! I plan on writing a letter to the CEO. This is bull!

Years ago I purchased a coat at JCPenneys. Tonight I’m saddened to find out that the fur around the hood is REAL and comes from China. In China, animals are skinned alive for their fur and then the fur is sent back here to the U.S. to be put on our clothing. This coat is a St. John’s Bay. At the time I bought it I wasn’t aware of what the animals suffer as they lose their fur, I really didn’t think much about animal fur. Now I’m horrified and if Penneys still puts animal fur on its clothes I want to know, cause I won’t shop there any more. please reply.


Joan March 30, 2014 at 8:00 pm

When are you going to bring back women’s St John’s Bay pants. They were the best pants ever. You need to bring them back.


Carrie March 28, 2014 at 6:32 pm

I am steamed..I went to JCPenny in Saginaw, Michigan and bought a Citizens watch for my boyfriend. I told the salesperson that it was for my boyfriends birthday she stated that she got her husband one and he loved it..So I give it to him for his birthday and come to find out it is a female watch. I called and spoke to the manager and her solution was to return it. Ok but the cheapest male Citizens watch they have is 200 more than I paid. She told me well
we can find another one that he will like but it will have to be
a different kind…WHAT if the sales lady would have told me
it was a womans watch I wouldnt have gotten it I would have spent the extra on the male watch because I had it at the time but I dont have two extra hundred dollars laying around…I am closing my credit account and never shopping at JC Penny again…they used to be a very reputable store not no more if they were they would have made this right


Anne March 27, 2014 at 2:42 pm

There’s no way to email -all “email us links” go nowhere. So here’s my complaint: I am writing to complain about deceptive steps taken to get me to open a jc Penney credit card. Last Saturday while shopping ay West Towne mall in Madison WI I was asked by a very nice salesman if I wanted to join the jcpenney rewards program. He told me it was easy, he told me that I’d get $10 for every $100 I spent. He told me I could use my debit card to make my purchases. At no time did he tell me it involved a credit card. He asked for my license so that I wouldn’t have to spell my name for him. He had me key in my ssn and household income and my husbands name but again…there was no mention of a credit card. When I got home and looked at the disclosures I realized that I had applied for a credit card. This is deceptive! I want the card cancelled and I want any record that I applied or obtained credit to be cleared from my credit report. But it appears that I have to write a letter!!!!!! Or call -but I want this in writing! Where are you JCPenney?????


Annette March 27, 2014 at 11:03 am

Will NEVER!!!!!! Shop or darken
the doorway of any jcpenny in my lifetime! Have never felt so disrespected by a employee in my life! Someone needs to train employees on customer service and on how to do hair at salon!!!


Stephanie March 25, 2014 at 6:40 pm

My Boyfriend bought me a ring for our anniversary. I only had it for a year and I have never had so many problems! We sent it out multiple times because the ring lost it’s color. It was a light blue color now its white. We also sent it out because the band broke. When I got it back the band of the ring wasn’t fixed. You could still see where it broke. It broke in the same place 2 days later! Today the band bent. I brought it in the the Joliet Illinois Jcpennys and told them the band bent and I am sick of sending it out its one problem after the next. The employee WAS BEYOND RUDE. I could not believe the service! She is standing behind the counter rolling her eyes at me and accusing me of bending it because I want the money. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE SERVICE IT WAS HORRIBLE! she took the ring and told me they will be calling me because the way the ring is bent isnt normal. So they will be calling me asking me questions! THATS REDICULOUS. I SHOULDNT HAVE PEOPLE CALLING ME ASKING ME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. WE PAYED FOR THE LIFETIME WARRANTY. another employee told me if there was another problem with the ring they would return it and I would get my money back!! This employee said store credit. I don’t want a store credit I was my $96.00 back!

I am hoping for a email after this because I would like to speak to someone from corporate. After this experience I WILL NOT BE SHOPPING AT JCPENNYS AGAIN!


lucia March 25, 2014 at 3:16 pm

Anonymous March 25, 2014 at 10:15 pm

I just read that the CEO has received a big raise. For the past two months employees have endured pay reductions and drastically reduced hours. Some longtime employees (20 plus years) have even been denied health care benefits because their hours were reduced below company full time reqirements. All the while these employees are being told to hang in there, things will get better. The employees bend over backwards trying to make up for the mistakes that the corporate CEO changes have caused. Those taking the heat and still smiling and doing everything they can to keep it going, get crap.


Renee March 24, 2014 at 10:15 pm

**PLEASE READ** I am a regular customer at the JCPenny Salon in Orange Park Mall, Orange Park, FL. My regular stylist left to pursue a job in another state leaving me to have to try one of the other stylists in the salon. On FrIday March 21, 2014, I had an appointment with stylist “Annie”. Annie asked if I wanted a rinse with my perm. I replied, “No, maybe next time”. After perming, shampooing and drying my hair, she said she would trim my ends. Key word here TRIM. Instead of a trim, she gave me A FULL BLOWN HAIR CUT!! She cut my hair into A BOB! I knew something was wrong when she didn’t hand me a mirror so that I could see the back of my hair. I grabbed a mirror from one of the other stations and saw that my hair was now at least 6 INCHES SHORTER! I AM DEVASTATED! When I asked her “WHY WHY WHY did you cut my hair, she’s implied replied “breakage”. To add insult to injury she CHARGED ME FOR THE CUT! I paid for the service and left shaking and angry. The next morning I called and spoke to the manager (the manger had gone home for the day at the time of service). The manager refunded my $85, however I WOULD RATHER HAVE MY HAIR! It took me years to grow my hair out! Trying to style and manage my new MUCH SHORTER hair is a heartbreaking and depressing challenge. Annie was determined to get more money out of me from the time I sat in her chair and when I turned down her offer for a rinse she took it upon herself to CUT MY HAIR WITHOUT MY CONSENT OR KNOWLEDGE. What Annie did was UNETHICAL inconsiderate, selfish and down right CRUEL! This website is the first stop in the complaints that I plan to file against her. I will file a BBB complaint as well as a complaint with the State Regulatory Commission. She must be held accountable for her actions and someone must make certain that this will not happen again!


Anonymous March 25, 2014 at 10:32 pm

Wow. I do not beleive this is Annies fault. I think you have issues with chang. Yes it is upsetting to lose a trusted stylist that knows you well. That being said, have you ever stopped to think about how much instruction you gave Annie. A trim and a haircut are the same exact thing. Did you specify exactly how much to trim. Perms are very damaging to hair, I didn’t even know that people still got them. Maybe when you said “trim” she thought you meant to get rid of the damage. Hair is hair, it groes back. As for her trying to get your money, it is her job, that is how hairstylist make a living. Salons coach their stylist to offer other services to everyone. It is a business. Your other stylist alresdy knew you were a cheap skate, so she knew not to ask. I’m guessing your hair looks a lot better. As for reporting her, what grounds do you have? Did she give you chemical burn to the point that your hair will notgrow back, are you damaged for life, did she threaten you physically in any way? My guess is that as soon as you left, you were so mean to her that she ran to the backroom in tears, while the other stylist sat and made fun of you. YOU should pull your big girl panties on and appologize to her, give her the money you took from her pocket for the time she spent trying to pleade you that she could have been using to please somone else. You should be ashamed of yourself for throwing such a child’s tantrum.


Renee March 26, 2014 at 4:45 pm

You have no idea what your talking about you are so far off base til it’s comical. I didn’t ask her to trim my hair and HELLO GENIUS….there is a big difference between a trim and cutting someone’s hair into a bob. I took it up with the manager and not with Annie directly so again you are WAY OFF THE MARK!! She kept the tip that I gave her, so cheapskate I am not!! Get a clue and find something else to do. ANONYMOUS??!!! Really? At least I gave my name so if anyone needs big girl panties ITS YOU.


Annette March 27, 2014 at 11:40 am

I too am fed up with jcpenny salon!!! Will never shop there again!


Annette March 27, 2014 at 7:42 pm

Also, I totally agree with ya! The anonymous person who replied to ya probably works for jcpenny!!! What a moron they are! Our hair means alot to us!!! That’s why I’m so pissed!! My hair will never be the same! And I had to find another salon to fix my hair the best they could!! Jcpenny told me (the salon)that I was too hard to please and I needed to not come back! You couldn’t pay me to go back!!

Tina Goebel March 23, 2014 at 2:01 pm

I went to a Salon in Vancouver Wa today. I was getting my hair dyed blond I have been ther before. I had one other bad experience. I should never have went back. She turned my hair red with a blotch of red where the highlights where suppose to be. She blamed the hair color and told me I could come back in a week if I still did not like it. It looked bad and she was going to let me leave. I told her she needed to fix it . She was very irritated. So she stripped my hair and then put some other coloring on it and it came out strawberry blonde. It is now frizzy and still not the color it was supposed to be. She still charged my credit and I left in tears.

I just wanted to start by saying how grateful I am that I had my hair done at your JC Penney Salon in Hermitage, Pa in the Shenango Valley Mall store. A friend of mine recommended it, but I usually get my hair done locally in Mercer, Pa. I had gotten my hair done at a JC penney Salon a while back and I was throughly disgusted by the service I received! I do have to say that this time I felt right at home from the moment I walked into the salon. For being a smaller not very up to date salon it was very organized and well run. I was impressed by the professionalism of all the staff, especially the Salon Manager Kyle. He made me feel at home right from the beginning and the whole time I was there I was impressed by the respect he showed to all the stylists and customers in the salon. He was willing to help them out with whatever they needed. It showed that he really cared about the customers and his staff. It’s not everyday you run across someone in the service industry that takes great pride in what they do. The higher ups in the JC Penneys can take some pointers from him in the regards to Customer Service! Its not always about the almighty dollar, sometimes its about treating people right! You need to be proud to have such a dedicated manager working for your organization. Now I can honestly say I have found a new salon to take care of my needs and will pass this experience on to all of my friends. Thank you all at JC Penneys Corp. for having such thoughtful staff and great service.

Laredo, Texas J.C.Penny we only have one local store. I had received a 20% coupon to be used along with my credit card. This store is a two story building. My first purchase was a pair of boots and a lady’s scarf. Which I used my coupon and then the associate marks my coupon with an X on it. I asked her why did you do this she said I been told to do so. I said but, I need to continue to purchase more gifts upstairs and now I can’t use it again. She just continue to tell me I’ve been told to do that. I asked her to call a supervisor which she tried several times on a radio to where no one was coming. I asked her don’t you have more the one or call your Director. She then pointed at me that the supervisor was by the shoe department. I had to walk ever as she was carring a coversation/laughing with an assoicate. I asked her if she was a supervisor which she answer yes what do you want in spanish. I told her the problem and she said that’s what we been told to do. The coupon in no place was it written to be used once only plus if that was the case I couldn’t be carrying all the merchandise with my hands and expected to continue shopping as they don’t have shopping carts or shopping bags like other stores in San Antonio, Texas or Houston, Texas has as that is the other stores I shop at. San Antonio is 150 miles away so I’m not just able to drive over just any time I want to shop. I was really upset because the so call supervisor kept saying in spanish that was the rule given to her. I asked to talk to a Director so by that time me being upset two other assistant persons came over because no upper management seemed to be around. They appoloized and gave me other coupons. A little late as I was already upset and left the store to shop where my money and other coupons were offered. So when I asked why was the associates told to mark the X on the coupon not to be used againg one of the so call assistant told me that corporate gives them the instructions because the MEXICANS tend to take advanatge. First of all the coupon if used once or six times its still only 20% off no matter what. I’m Latin and if I should be anyother race my money is good and my credit card is well used and my cash money also. San Antonio, Texas has plenty of Mexicans and other races who spend there monies also. All stores have a shopping cart and or shopping bags expect Laredo (maybe the MEXICANS still them ?). So will someone tell me the true about the 20% coupons and the MEXICANS taking advanatge of the coupons. The Laredo Supervisors either don’t understand directions been given or you need better communication directed to them. I took long to send this e-mail because I wasn’t sure if this was worth my faustration. I do my shopping in San Antonio when I go and I even visited the Beauty Salon this last time. Bad experience with I guess non qualified supervisors.

On March 15, 2014, I was at the jewelry counter in Dubois, Pa. This JCPenney store had for sale a “Sterling Silver” set which consisted of a Necklace, Earrings, Bangle and Ring with diamonds for $550.00. The Sterling Silver sign was quite large, but when I asked whether it was true Sterling, the girl did not know. I love Sterling and could tell that it was plated (which means it will wear off and is basically “Costume” jewelry). On the tag on the bottom of the box it stated that it was plated, but you could only read it with a magnifying glass. They also did not know what the Sterling was plated over. Now, please, JC Penney, false advertising does not go a long way. This is basic junk jewelry, and for the price I found the whole situation unreal. The store blamed it on Corporate, and after I talked to the Corporate office, they blamed it on the store. Considering the amount of money I have spent at JC Penney over the years and will be absolutely sure to take my business elsewhere.

My wife and I recently completed a mattress purchase, at the Penny’s store, in Poughkeepsie, NY. We had received a warranty credit, from Penny’s, for our current Spring Air Brand mattress. We were so disappointed with the quality of that Penny’s mattress, that we considered giving up the credit and purchasing elsewhere. We made the decision to, at least, begin with Penny’s, to find out what we would get for our money.

Choosing such an item to purchase, upon which you will be spending one-third of your life, requires very careful attention to the details of the product, as you do your shopping comparisons.

Because Penny’s was having a mattress sale, we were anxious to begin looking, before the sale ended. Our first visit to Penny’s, was with the manager of the department. Unfortunately, the experience did not go well. The person was not knowledgeable, and we were very disappointed, with her. We left the store thinking, this is one of the reasons Penny’s is in trouble with its customers.

Two days later, we returned to the Penny’s mattress department, and this time, we were greeted by a different employee.

He introduced himself, to us, right away, and we already felt better being there this time. Thomas was a delight to deal with. We could tell right away that he was experienced with the mattress products Penny’s is selling, as well as some of the competitions. On each of two visits, with Thomas, we had gone over the details of several mattresses. He made sensible recommendations. Due to his insight, we chose not to look further than Penny’s.

We can definitely say that our purchase was directly impacted by the attention given and the knowledge that Thomas possesses. He also made us feel more comfortable in making such a large purchase ($3,000), way beyond our credit.

Penny’s has been partially bruised by driving away customers. Beleaguered
Penny’s needs to return to its “old self” and not drive customers away en masse.

One such way, is to have knowledgeable, courteous, and pleasant employees available to serve we customers, who are looking for the old Penny’s.

As Penny’s begins to implement its new marketing strategies, it will be important to have the right employees in place to help with accomplishing some of them.

Store associate, Thomas Creager, is one important step in helping Penny’s achieve their goals.

I went to the jcpenney store today Slatten Ranch Antioch CA. I shopped around for a while. I had a pair of shoes I was going to buy. I went into Sephora. Shopped around was there for about 10 mins. Only 2 other customers in Sephora two employees. No one came up to ask me if I needed help because I really did. I walked out. Went to the jewelry department was going to buy a watch walked around waited waited and waited the lady never bothered to help me. I walked away to go pay for my shoes. 3 employees at the register. As soon as I get up there the 3rd lady gets done with a customer. I assume I’m next so I start walking to the register the lady doesn’t even look at me she says to the two other employees OK I’m going back on the floor now. I was flabbergasted with what horrible service this place has!! I threw my shoes in the aisle and walked out and I will not ever go back that jcpenney again!!

Regarding store 5050 E. Ray Road, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Rushed off work at 8:30pm got here at 8:50. They close at 9 but locked doors by the time I got there. They saw me try to open the door and turned the other way. Horrible for those of us who work late. I knew what I came for. I would’ve been 5 minutes which means I would’ve been out by the closing time which is 9pm not 8:50! People just stared at me as I was walking back to my car. Embarrassing!

Hi, good day,
I have a major complaint (as well as a suggestion) about the JC Penny Salon. I have had a ‘touch’ up on my base color as well as on my hi-lites at 2 salons, base color in Pasadena, TX (Fairmont store, and hi-lites at the Wallisville store) I pay a fairly hefty price for ‘quality’ products, (as I was told y’all use Matrix & Chi) my color should last ALOT longer than one wash. I have had my hair colored at JC Penny Salons for the last 2 years, but the color ALWAYS fades w/in one wash…(because I use light colors, I only wash my hair twice a week. (and most of the times just once in the winter) I should NOT be seeing my gray hair after the first wash. This is why I come in & pay $60 for a ‘base’ color only. The hi-lites are also $60 however, the stylist that did my hair 2 weeks ago, does NOT know how to do hi-lites. I am very disappointed with the service JC Penny salons provide. After being disappointed for the last time w/the Salons, I am formerly submitting a complaint. This is ridiculous. We pay a pretty penny for quality products & stylists, only to receive poor, ‘student’ like results.
I would like some sort of ‘re-do’ at no cost to me…..I also want to question the stylists that JC Penny hires. What kind of training do they have? I know that other salons offer training to their stylists so they avoid unhappy clients….Does JC Penny offer this?
Also, what kind of policy do y’all have as far as how long a color lasts?
I know y’all have a file on me because I have to initial every time I get my hair colored, so you can have proof that I have gone to the salon many many times.
Please advise asap!


Marcy Abston March 14, 2014 at 7:01 pm

I would like to file a complaint. I placed an order online on March 2. My credit card was charged and payment posted on March 4. As of March 12 and I have not received my order or any update on my order. I contacted Customer Service and they do not know where the order is. I wanted to cancel the order but I was advised I can not cancel the order until it arrives at the store. This is very poor customer service and at the very least an update should have been provided to me I should not have to call to check on my order. And the fact that when I call there is no not an update available is very upsetting.Everyone has apologized and written out the same script, but nothing has really been done to take care of the matter. I ordered merchandise from two other companies and not only received an order confirmation but also a confirmation once the order had shipped. I also have already received the merchandise that I ordered. It has been over the 4-7 business days and still nothing.As of today 3/14/14 I finally received a refund for my order. Sadly I do not think I will be ordering from JC Penny again.

Management here is Incompetent at the Rancho Cucamonga CA inside the Victoria Gardens, salon is a ludicrous lack of efficiency.
Came in a few day’s ago to give it a last try, meet another new manager started and ended in a hostile manner.
Filthy Salon!

I recently had a horrible experience with the jc penney salon on salem happened on a Sunday feb 16,2014..I went in for a haircut and full foil highlight and was a returning stylist took a lot longer than usual but at the end of it all I was pleased w cut and color.however I was not pleased with the dirty looks of the manager named Sharon who kept eyeballing my stylist .there were only 2 girls on that day and a few walk ins were turned away because they were busy w I sat there the manager kept punching in xtra charges to my bill to make up for the time I was there.stylist used a flat iron on me and I was charged.also charged for two toner treatments which I hav never needed at any other time I’ve had my hair done there.when I went to pay my stylist went to scan the slip she had for me which was a cut n color and the manager told her to use the 1 she printed out.very unprofessional..still tipped out stylist 50 bucks despite her managers glares n xtra charges.contacted jc penney n was told someone would contact me.never happened .obviously they don’t give a damn.will not see my name in their computer again for an appt.

I bought a very lovely engagement ring for my girlfriend so glad that she loved it! I got insurance plan for the ring so it’ll be covered if anything happens. Gf so excited we went back to the store and had it resized from a 7 to a 5.5. Unfortunately, the ring came back with a missing stone! I forgot what the name of the ‘expert’ was but she was very rude when she said ‘That’s ok honey, there’s always hope.’ My gf felt.bad about the ring and had second thoughts about it thats why she asked about a refund and the lady responded ‘ph honey that’s only gonna happen if you keep having issues with the ring.’ WOW, the receipt said only 60 days for returns. We went home devastated it was so obvious they don’t have QUALITY CONTROL! So they sent the ring back again for another 2 long weeks just to replace one stone! 1st waiting time is also 2 weeks btw… This is the most exciting part of all.. After a 1month wait, they callled and said the ring is abavailable for pickup, ha! We went back again and SAW THE RING WITH THE SAME PROBLEM- STILL WITH THAT MISSING STONE. SURPRISE! ANOTHER TIME WASTED! We demanded to get it replaced ASAP and the manager told us that they’re gpnna have to pay for that stone if they will not send it for 2 weeks…. It’s totally nonsense to wait for another 2 weeks! Omg my fiance was so mad and devastated she pushed that ring that far! She could’ve returned it but she didn’t. It’s sad how they make lives of other people ruined with FALSE PROMISES.

Another 2 days passed. They replaced the stone. My gf don’t feel good about going to that JC store again cuz she knows something bad will happen again. I first checked the ring and was happy about seeing a stone. Finally! But my gf who happens to be a thorough type of person noticed with her naked eye that the stone that was replaced doesnt have the same QUALITY! GOODNESS! I CAN’T BELIEVE JCPENNEY! THEY PLACED A DIFFERENT STONE AND CLAIMED IT WAS THE SAME QUALITY. THE SALES EXPERT ASKED MY FIANCE ‘WHATS WRONG HONEY?’ AND THEY LOOKED AT IT WITH WHATEVER YOU CALL THAT TOOL TO GET A CLOSER LPOK AT A DIAMOND! AND SAID ‘OH,, YEAH I SEE IT.’ WE WILL DEFINITELY COMLLAIN ABOUT THIS TO THE HUGHEST POSITION IN JCP I HATE THE FACT THAT THEY THINK THEY COULD FOOL PEOPLE ESP MY FIANCE!

We were so mad, we returned the ring to another JCP branch as we don’t trust the employees who work at that certain branch. Returning that ring and getting our money back is not a good enough compensation from what your company did to US! WILL NEVER SHOP AT YOUR STORE AGAIN EVER! JCP DECEIVED ME FOR BEING A REPUTABLE COMPANY. I CHOSE TO BUY A RING FROM YOU OVER ZALES OR KAY JEWELERS BECAUSE I THOUGHT JCP IS A GREAT CO. BUT U WAS TOTALLY WRONG! NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. LIARS! FAKES!


Shannon Hensarling February 26, 2014 at 7:30 pm


I had very bad experience at the JCPenney Salon in Hattiesburg, Ms on Feburary 17,2014. I went in for a trim and color. I’ve been having to wear my hair in a bun since the first night I left. A woman named Allison asked for my info of the JCPenney Facebook page on February 21,2014 and I was told I would be contacted by management and she would look into to situation more. I’ve heard nothing back and I truly need something done about my hair. I would like to know who I can speak with and explain everything to along with sending photos.

Thanks in advance,
Shannon Hensarling

I bought a pair of Towncraft string tie casual pants about 25 years ago and liked them enough to buy many more over the years and have used them on days off since then. The company seems to have dropped them from the assortment offered online. I really hope you will re-order and keep them available as I am now retired and use them daily or did until they developed holes in the knees. Please, please reorder as I don’t want to change companies for something that has become such a basic in my wardrobe. 100 percent cotton, string tie, elastic waist pant in several colors, hopefully with the town craft or St. John’s Bay label. Thanks.


Jenny Paige February 24, 2014 at 11:51 am

I’ve shopped at jcp in Texarkana Tx, since I’ve been in college that’s been 20+ years ago! I always love how jcp keeps up with the trends!! And on Saturday my family and I were shopping and we were inline to check out and we saw a sweet little sephora girl get yelled at by a really rude employee! We were close enough to hear word for word everything that was exchanged and how the sephora girl apologized and told the employee she was doing what her beauty leader told her to do! The poor girl started crying and went back to sephora! I got so offended by this women I asked to speak with the manger and found out that her name was Deborah and she was the “employee” that had degraded and abused the poor girl from sephora. I couldn’t believe that she would have talked to her like that in front of tons of customers! It’s was very embarrassing and horribly rude the way she was treated! I made my family put back all of our stuff and we had tons of clothes and home goods and we went to find that girl! I hope that someone sees this and actually does something about this or jcp will lose a lot more business!!!


Edna Odendahl February 20, 2014 at 8:54 pm

I am really upset with Penneys. I printed off a coupon for $50 off hair color and haircut. I presented the coupon and they said it was not right and would only give me $20 off and the coupon read $500 off. The manager would not honor it. I think if the coupon said $50 off I should recieve it. Please let me know about my rights. T


CHARLENE February 18, 2014 at 10:48 am

Would someone please explain to me why I cannot be given my “P.D.” number? I paid for the service and I should be entitled to all of my information concerning my vision. It should not be a policy which states that they can not give that information out, because if you receive services from any other optical store, your pupils will be measured anyway. And, what if you decide to order online? Are we forced to order from your store. I have checked the prices of the frames…not inexpensive at all. I have my prescription and all my information is on it except the pupillary distance number. Please, please do not withhold information about my eyesight. I feel as if I’m being held hostage. Revise your policy.


Cynthia February 17, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Jcpenneys Visalia CA store has the worst Manaent ever Especially Letty and Tommy. Both degrade us as workers, having nothing nice to say to anyone, and never complementing when job well done, they belittle us and don’t appreciate any of the employees there.


Dennis D. Willioams February 13, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Would someone please tell me why J C Penny’s is closing store Like in Janesville Wi. When it has been here forever . If it wasn’t for their lack of people in the store to help shoppers find items and their own business practices I think they could manage .
Also when they have to pay a fortune to a bad choice in choosing last GEO they would not have to close stores .


Tina Verble February 12, 2014 at 2:27 pm

People who pay their bills on time BEWARE!!
I have been a loyal JPC customer for 30 years! This afternoon I checked my bank account and found that when I used JCPenney’s online bill pay service they deducted my bank account TWICE and gave me a credit on my account. I went to the account website and you can clearly see that they deducted the payment twice – once on February 8 (Saturday) and again on the 9th (Sunday). I called customer service and was told that I needed to fax the Supervisor, Tina Shu, a copy of my bank statement showing that the deductions were made twice and to note my bank account number. If… IF they determined that I had been charged twice they will reimburse my account in 10-14 business days!
Wow! I learned my lesson. Never will I use the organization’s online bill pay again, and I seriously doubt I will shop there in the future.


Not very happy May 9, 2014 at 8:50 am

bb February 11, 2014 at 11:46 pm

My daughter has been waiting for her W-2 so decided to call the store she worked at. Found out that these forms that are supposed to be post marked/mailed by Jan 31st were being held at the store. Really? She would have been waiting forever if I hadn’t told her to call.


Weary Consumer February 10, 2014 at 6:02 pm

I will NEVER, EVER, walk into a stinking, tacky JCPenney store again until they deal with the unethical and illegal practices of the company they have dealing with their insurance products–Aegon and Stonebridge. These are the most horrible customer service issues I have ever had, with any industry. Their office in Hollywood Florida has been plaguing consumers all over this country since at least 2008. JCP has lost my business unless they finally have the courage to address this. For the bulk of 7 months these lowlifes have been calling at least daily, never saying anything or leaving messages. The web is full of websites essentially packed with countless types and numbers of complaints. They sign people up without permission, using JCP accounts, and refuse to cancel and use other tactics to stall. They ignore the DNC list, which is a clear indicator of a parasitic, useless, evil company. I am blocking their number which allows my phone to ring once, which, given the call volume, is still disruptive, so the volume of my phone is now off. I am looking into legal action against all of the companies, since it is disrupting my work. The feds have gone after them and need to continue.


adriana February 10, 2014 at 3:04 pm

I was fired in 2010 over the phone by the HR person. I went and filed for unemployment to then be told I have to pay them back because JCP told them I quit, They garnished my taxes this year & I have a newborn to care for. That’s ridiculous JCP. I cant believe they did that. I would appreciate an email back. Thank you


Anonymous February 9, 2014 at 4:47 pm

I went into a jcpenney store to do a return from an online purchase and they refused to do the return and told me to do it at another store because they stated that my receipt (the one that came in the mail) didn’t have prices on it. I informed them it’s the only receipt they provided to me and I wasn’t going to go to another store they should be able to process the return for me. After waiting an hour they finally processes the return. The manager was very hostile and tried to make a copy of my online receipt. Which had my address on it so I told her I did not want her having my personal information (also they never make copies of this. She was simply acting insane) she tried to rip the paper from my hand and crumbled it and ripped it in half then proceeded to grab my wrist leaving an abrasion and a welt. I called the police to file assault charges.


Joyce February 8, 2014 at 2:05 pm

This has happened to me before.I went to pay for clothes that were on a sale rack. They were NOT on sale.This time I walked away and let the store keep them.There are to many other places to shop were you will not look like a FOOL when you check out.


Christine Alexander February 6, 2014 at 4:20 pm

I am a 48 yr old woman and have enjoyed shopping at JCP over the years, however my last few visits haven’t been as satisfying. Today has changed my loyalty to JCP. I went to do a return and half the registers were closed and the ones open had long lines. Secondly I decided to do a little shopping with a coupon you sent me, I waited another 25 minutes in line only to be told I couldn’t use my coupon because I was 1 cent ( yes a penny) short on my purchase ( which you always honored in the past), This was the only time I had available during your sale to shop and the line in back of me was too long to wait in again due to time restraints. To top it off I called the manager at the Altamonte, Fl. location and was put on hold twice with no answer to my calls, needless to say I will no longer be a loyal shopper with JCP…….Customer service is everything in retail people!!!!!


Bruce February 5, 2014 at 11:26 pm

Two things. First, I’ve been trying to find an item for the last six months, but whenever I go to my local store (during sales), the item is not there. I ordered it through the catalog order but they’re telling me 4 – 7 business days! OK – am I missing something here? It’s an (overpriced in my opinion) item that should be in stock to begin with (basic men’s clothing) and it’s never in stock. I don’t know why I waste my time. It just gets really tiring going out to the mall and not finding what you want. JCP, either learn how to have an active inventory system or get a lot faster with your “to store” deliveries.

Second, I could have asked someone but the only employees I saw were at the cash register. I remember when you could go in to a department store and sales clerks (as we called them) knew their merchandise and also how to dress – not like this younger girls (under 30) who dress like slobs. No wonder your company is loosing its financial backside. I can go down the mall to Dillard’s, for example, and get someone who knows how to help me.


Michelle Reed January 30, 2014 at 3:32 pm

Went to the riverside location as a normal guest expected to receive the same service I always have for the past 2 years I live right by the mall and never hesitate to go to jcp, but after the ignorance I received today I will drive as many miles needed to go to another store. As I own my own company it is hard to make time but I do make sure my guest leave happy. You guys need to improve you customer service there was a guy by the name of Kevin in the kids location where I hoped to shop for my kids, anyways he did not help me what so ever he just stood there and unprofessionally flirted with his coworker. They just giggled as I stood there lost out of my mind! I will not be returning and don’t want nothing in exchange just that you please improve you guest service because that young boy needs a new job or at least to acknowledge his guest


Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 6:19 pm

Wow! After sitting here reading most of these reviews
It’s no wonder that JCPenney stock is dropping like a bom…
Shame on you JCPennys for treating hard working Americans with such
a lack of respect and consideration! I give you 3 years topps and you will be history.
No wonder why there are so few customers in your storeshmmm
And I thought it was on the store in Carlsbad Ca. Good Bye JCPENNEY! !!


Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 5:51 pm

Warn the unsuspecting public that JCPENNEY s
Is the worst!!!
I too have had nothing but a nightmare with JCPENNEY!
I’m going to cut my losses abd try my hardest to get the word out that ” JCPENNEY is thr WORST”! “Stay away”!!


Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 5:33 pm

I would not shop at jcpenney again if it was the last store on earth!
We purchased a sofa, a leather sofa that “Mark the furniture sales manager” told us was manufactured in “Canada”, at JCP. It was delivered wrong color, bad condition and , we discovered later, with BED BUGS! and manufactured in “Mexico”!
We purchased a mattress and box spring; the box spring frame was cracked and the mattress was faulty/sagged in the middle, we returned them, and went to Sleep Train.
Another day while I was walking through the store, a hand blender fell off of a shelve and cut my hand, JCPenney could not possibly have cared less! and then a week later when I return the blender was right back in the spot that it was when it fell and cut my hand!
I would not recommend JCPenney to anyone!
All stores have issues, the main problem with JCPenney is that they don’t care! They don’t care how bad their service is! They don’t care how bad their products are! they do not care about their customer!
Shop somewhere else.
Our first, and last purcheses from JCP!
The Carlsbad store Manager is extremely defensive and very Rude!…..
“Couldn’t Care Less”!!


Bethany January 27, 2014 at 9:52 am

I am hopeing to get this letter higher up in the chain of management.

I really wish that your program was not monthly, or that your points rolled over from month to month.

Other stores programs are cumulative and I use them much more, because I get rewarded when I shop there every few months.

Your program makes me feel pressure to spend so much every month. Honestly it makes me dislike your program because sometimes I cannot afford to do that.

Also you program is disappointing because i feel like you don’t care when i shop a little this month and a little that month you only want to reward those people who spend a lot in 1 month.

I could spend enough money in your store in 1 week but if the week spans two different months i don’t get my reward. its really really frustrating.

Feels like my small purchased here and there are not appreciated.



Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 5:40 pm

Bethany, you are correct, JCPenneys
doesn’t care about you they only want your $


Sandy January 23, 2014 at 2:09 pm

I have been waiting for a replacement chair delivery since Oct. 2013, when I was advised it was on B/O. On Jan. 7, 2014, I called to check status and was advised the B/O was cancelled in Dec 2013 and no one knows why. I was told they would call me back with an answer for the cancellation by the next day. I am still waiting on that call. On Jan. 10, 2014, I requested that the entire order be picked up. Pick up was scheduled for today, Jan 23, 2014, it is a no show and JCP cannot tell me why. I am again waiting for someone to call me back with an answer. No wonder they are having problems with sales and profits…there is no inter-communication with their vendors, manufacturers, transportation or most importantly the customer.


Lana January 28, 2014 at 3:46 pm

Almost the same thing happened to me. Now after over 45min to an hour on the phone last night my one item I mainly wanted was never shipped and is no longer available! I was so upset last night I cried. I was told by email and by customer service they were in route and delayed do to weather, but I would get a call soon to set up a delivery. I will never shop there again!


Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 5:44 pm

Lana, Cancel your order and get out while you still can and
Before it gets worse!!


Mary January 17, 2014 at 6:29 pm

There is nowhere to shop in Rockville and their are a lot of people with money. Your only competition is Target. Everyone has to drive fifiteen or more miles to go shopping.


Mary January 17, 2014 at 6:27 pm

Close your wheaton Maryland store and move back to Rockville MD approximately ten miles away. Caucasion people are afraid to go to Wheaton Plaza because the area has changed in the last twenty years. The last time I went their I did not see anyone buying clothes or ordering Curtains only a guy steeling and then running to the metro. The whole mall staired at me like I was in the wrong place. Sorry to be so candid but it is an impoverished area.


Susan Deegan/Hieb January 29, 2014 at 5:57 pm

Mary, thank your lucky stars that you are not in the JCP nightmare and shop somewhere else!!! 🙂


Aaron Rowell January 17, 2014 at 10:40 am

I live in Marshfield WI. , I think that the WRONG store is being closed. The J. C. Penney’s
here in Marshfield WI. is the WORST store in the state of WI. . The people who work in this store are the worst people that you could have working for your company. The inventory is all wrong for the people who really live here. The close are all for YOUNG and thin people. I will NEVER shop in the store here and I WILL tell other people NOT to shop in this store as long as it stays open and has the CRAP that it has now. I will drive to any other store , but NEVER go into the one here in Marshfield WI. .
Yours Truly , Aaron Rowell. P.S. , If you wish to ask me more about this e-mail and why I sent it , you may do so. A. Rowell. all


Jan Cooksey January 16, 2014 at 9:06 am

Now your gonna close stores.. Well no wonder.. Your problems started with hiring people who don’t listen to his customers.. Your bread and butter people.. The ones who paid you.. Take my store in Clarksville, In.. I was your platinum card holder.. You took out all your staple brands, in fact there’s not much in the store to buy, as it’s now large open spaces, with some clothes thrown across some tables. .You redesigned the housewares to some cooking stations, that no one uses, and took out all the stuff to buy.. When you get a big paying person in your office, who doesn’t buy at Penneys, don’t want to take advice of the people who do, this is what you get.. If you’d like to talk about bringing back Penney’s, I’m available .. Jan, C.. 812-590-XXXX.. 30 yr Realtor retired


Patrick Loveland January 15, 2014 at 7:13 pm

On January 10th 2014, I visited the JC Penny Store in Watertown, New York. I was looking for a suit coat or sport coat for work. I had found one that I liked but I was unable to find the size I needed. I observed a young man staring at himself in the mirror making himself “look pretty”, his name was Daniel a sales associate for JC Penny. I had asked Daniel if he could check and see if the store had my size, in the storeroom. Daniel told me that JC Penny is a “door to floor store what you see is what we have”, but he could order it for me on a computer, as if I could not do that myself. I was NOT HAPPY. I was approached by Patty in the men’s department who was very pleasant, and was happy to help me. She ran out back to see if the storeroom had my size. However, we found it on the rack it was not marked properly. Patty was professional, helpful and just nice to speak with. She understood that I could have easily walked out the store and found a coat at another store, I certainly did not want to order it. I wanted to try it on see how it fit. I wanted to know what I looked in it before I bought.
What happened to good old fashion customer service? My guess is that is why lots of people shop one online because retail stores just cannot find good people to represent the store. When customers enter a retail store with the thought of “shopping” it possible that we may want something more we just have not seen it yet. While Patty helped there too, she helped pick out shirts that I could wear with the coat. My needs became her needs in finding me something that I could be happy with, and feel good about myself in. That what customer service is, helping people, not because it is your job but because that was good people do. Patty saved the day for JC Penny on January 10th. JC Penny you want to have good customer service take a page or lesson for LLBean. Thank you Patty hopefully one person can make a difference.

To whom it may concern:

It is probably been about eight months or more since I shopped at JCPenney here in Yuba City, CA. As usual I entered at the rear of the store in the back parking lot of the Yuba City Mall.

When I first entered the store I was greatly surprised to to see the Customer Service Desk is reinstalled after being removed for well over a year I think. The woman behind the counter, Beth Kanihan, was very congenial and helpful. We talked for a short time.

A little history: I arrived at the Yuba/Sutter counties of California in 1985, being assigned to Beale Air Force Base. At that time I was Chief of the Anesthesia Department at the base hospital. Incidentally my wife, June, was the Chief, Base Housing Manager, a GS– 12 position. We shopped at the local JCPenney store where it was located in Linda, CA. In 1997 the Feather River levee broke and flooded the store up to the ceiling. Needless to say it was never opened again. They then opened a new JCPenney store across the feather River in Yuba City, CA. It was a part of the Yuba City Mall complex of stores. My wife and I have been shopping there ever since, both having JCPenney charge cards. (Now accounts closed since my wife died in 2009.) I am now U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force retiree, soon-to-be 74 years old.

After talking with Beth she kindly introduced me to the store manager, Margot Delgato. I was not aware that Mr. Matlock, the other store manager, had retired. I knew him for years. A friendly chat ensued, telling me the lanyards and employee pins were re-initiated, the service desk/package pickup desk was back, and sale signs were re-initiated. And brand-name clothing that was once dropped is now back.

What a very pleasant surprise indeed! WELCOME BACK JC PENNEY!

Afterwards I shopped in the men’s department, looking for shirts and pants. Initially there was only a young man present, a salesperson, probably being of age in the mid-20s. He was dressed extremely sharp, shined black leather shoes, nicely creased pants with coordinated shirt and tie. A very pleasant young man and I complimented him accordingly as he well deserved it. After purchasing two shirts I left the store.

I must make it a point to inform Mrs. Delgado, the store manager, that this fine young salesperson at JCPenney should receive a lanyard with three employee award pins. His name was “Levio.”

Or perhaps you can make this happen.

Much obliged for your time and efforts in this matter.

I had my hair done at the JC Penney Salon in Lansing Michigan I HAD beautiful snow white hair which for years I had died to achieve the color until it is ow naturally white (No more dying for 5 yrs.) I went in to have hair done asked to have hair done and the yellow tinge removed (done by Purple shampoo). Looked fabulous until 3 days later in the snow and mist my hair got damp I was en-route home to North Carolina and stopped about 2 hr s out for lunch noticed a pinkish tinge at temples thought strange but maybe lighting leaving restaurant got more mist on hair. At home later daughter cam in and looked at me and asked MOM what did you do to your hair? I asked what she meant thinking its the up-do appearance making it look like I had cut short. It’s PINK and immediate look showed definitely pink. I immediately called the Salon and asked what did you put on y hair its now turning pink! The stylish stated 3 procedures however she only listed 2 on card. Maibul, purple shampoo and bleached hair clarifying solution I do not have bleached hair!!!!! when asked why she stated to put some moisture in your hair you said you had a perm last month. Well next it day even pinker The Lansing Salon arranged for the Fayetteville Salon to try and fix it. That Salon manager wanted to blame the all over Pink on my coat scarf a fuzzy I have had a long time NOT. Well that runed it to a champagne blonde for 2 days before turning pink again. I walked into my regular hairdresser and told her don’t say it. She was in shock and said what did you do my response have my hair done at Penney’ s In Lansing it was beautiful white (I have pictures) before during and after all this. She washed in purple shampoo let sit for 15 minutes and as it was blow drying a lighter calmer color (not white) she noticed a line of demarcation and asked did they bleach your hair nope and explained the 3 procedures I had been told about. We called the Lansing manager where Daine proceeded to tell her how my beautiful white hair was now ruined what the world did they use. They DID NOT know that Mailbu Crystal which we were told they used to remove spay and light discoloring grabs Pink on white haired people did they not know that? No they di not and agreed to research then told me oh well it will grow out and hung up. I am left withfuzzy burnt hair from the bleached clarifyer and had to have expensive treatments to help fix and this will be a long procedure to re-grow my hair and hope it will ever be its beautiful color again. Till then all my clothes clash with this hair and I am terrified of what happens when I go on my cruise in 3 weeks.

I’m a pissed off 0099 employee. For four days we been working without heat, while our manager is out on vacation. It makes no sense to walk around work with a heavy coat, scarf, earmuffs, and gloves on. You have customers complaining how cold it is, associates are getting sick and nobody seems to care. I use to like working for this company but I hate this company. Money is the only thing that matters. The hell with the associates that keeps the store running. We spend holidays in here, we spend our life in jcpenney and gets no type of appreciation not what so ever. It’s not worth it anymore…But I do know this, if it’s still cold in this store tomorrow, I’m contacting my lawyer and finding out what can be done about this This is beyond ridiculous.

The JC Penney store in the Coral Square Mall has the worst sales people ever…
about 90% of them are black and have a bad attitude towards white folks.

I asked two black sales clerks to ring up my items I was buying and they would not
and motioned me further down the isle, while giving me dirty looks (attitude).
I finally found a white woman to ring me up but she spent several minutes taking a personal phone call from a friend while I waited and waited.

All the time she was on the phone a black lady sales clerk kept yelling loudly from about
ten feet away, “Who dat be on da phone? Who dat be on da phone? Who dat be on da phone.” Irritating, disgusting, incompetent sales people. And WHY are 90% of the sales people in this store black with a bad attitude exhibited towards whites?

No wonder JC Penney is in trouble and looking at bankruptcy within a year or less.
It can’t come too soon, as far as I am concerned. I was going to complain to the General Manager of that store but you guessed it, the GM is a black woman.

Just close the JC Penney down and put all these incompetent sleezeballs back into the unemployment line where they belong !!!!!!

I will never shop at JC Penney again !!!!!

I can’t believe that racism still exist …… I went in to one of your store on Long Island and was disrespected by one of your customer service representative . The lady was so rude to me but treated others very respectful . I have been a customer for years. I will not be ignorant like her and will not post her name because I will be putting my self down to her level… I think that you need to give your staff sensitivity training and that all people should be treated with respect and dignity.

I had a horrible experience today at your location off I35 in austin tx. First off, as a former employee, I was pleased to receive coupons and promotions; as before they were no longer offered. I checked my email and saw that I received a coupon for 10 off a purchase of 25. As I am shopping around the store In the undergarments section, I notice a man eyeing me. My first thought is that we has a pervert who was watching me pick out panties and bras. As I continued to shop in other department I noticed that he was following me the entire 2 hrs that I was there. I felt disguised and no longer wanted to shop, so I proceeded to the Check out line. Once I’m checking out the cashier told me I couldn’t use my coupon on sale items before even starting the transaction. She told me to read the fine print. So I read it out loud and it clearly states that I could indeed use it on sale items. Once I’m checking out, she started arguing with me saying that certain items were not on clearance. She had to call someone in the department about the prices, and guess what? I was right! The items were clearly on sale with a big red sign! The cashier is taking her time thoroughly checking my items for tags and censors. Once we are done, I walk out the doors and I am stopped! They asked me to come back inside to check my bags because the alarm went off. After looking through my bag they coincidence find a censor on an item. Hmmm how smooth of them to try and see if I had anything else on me. I will be back up there to see if they will adjust my purchase with the coupon I had and if I can receive an apology from the staff. If not, I am looking to take further action!

The words are:

Silent night, holy night, all is calm all is bright, round yon virgin mother and child holy infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

You took Jesus out of the song. You want to take him out of your commercials? That is your prerogative, but you took him out and changed the song. I won’t ever buy from your company again and I pray that The Lord will shut you down. Same on you Blake Shelton for caving into political correctness. Christmas is about Jesus birth. Write your own song about peace if you don’t want to advocate Jesus but to take Him out of a song written for Him? Unconscionable. Good bye to your music.


Tiffany December 14, 2013 at 5:37 pm

I will most definitely be taking more action on this I know there’s something I can do sue them or something IM sure IM not only one this has happen to . I was totally humiliated in public and can’t believe that they weren’t 100%sure they just had a hunch and went on to humiliate me in front of lot of people . I will never return here and I hope that if I can’t do something that they do this again to some eked and that person takes them to court and sues the crap out of them . Thanks again JCPENNEY WANNA BE COPS ONCE AGAIN FOR THE IMMENSE HUMILIATIONS YOU PUT ME THROUGH HOPE IT HOLIDAYS ARE FULL OF GRIEF AND SHOT CAUSE YOU DESERVE IT ALSO GET SECURITY THAT ISN’T SLAMMING DOPE ON JOB MAYBE THEN YOU’LL DO YOUR JOB RIGHT.

I have a vision for your company. In the Midwest, especially Iowa, we are taller than ever before. Just in my family of five, there are 3 of us who need tall clothing. I would love to walk into a store that caters to us. The pants are left unhemmed so the seamstress could adjust the length to fit me. The jacket length in the sleeves could be adjusted as well. Shirts would have an extra couple of inches added on. The clothes would be very stylish just like the petite section of the store. We could buy pants suits that match, dresses that are long enough, and shoes in the bigger sizes with cute short heels. If you are over 5’11, there is no need for 4 ” heels, just cute designer styles with maybe an 1″ or shorter heel. Shoe sizes 10, 11, 12 and 13 for women. Men’s shoe sizes 14 and larger. But I’ll get to them later.
As a 45 year old gal, 5″11, wearing a size 18, there isn’t much out there. The plus size department was meant for the shorter, rounder through the middle, older ladies. We taller gals could use some longer, better fitting, cuter clothing. I think there is a real niche here that could be a gold mine for you. I would absolutely love to walk into a store and be fitted from head to toe with clothing that fit appropriately, including shoes. We might need to be treated like a men’s store that caters to the height and waist of the man. My husband can walk into a store and have his pants hemmed to the appropriate length by the store tailor that day or mailed directly to him. As tall women I WOULD LOVE THAT!!

My son is 14 years old and 6’5. We are having trouble finding young adult clothing in your store. Many of your tee shirts have older adult content on the tee shirts and most clothing is for the older man in talls. He is an Extra Large Tall and there is not much out there. Yes of course there is some on-line but it’s nice to try it on before you buy it.

So my vision is …. a beautiful section of your store just for us tall girls and guys to make us look pretty or handsome. With reasonable prices, like you currently have. A seamstress to hem out pants and jackets to fit. Beautiful section of larger sizes of short heeled shoes for gals. I WOULD LOVE THIS. Walking out of a store with a complete outfit that fits well and shoes to match. This is my vision for you. A potential gold mine in the Midwest area.

Let me know what you think.

I purchased a bed frame online on Dec. 3rd. I requested and paid $25 extra for 2nd day air as I had a newborn at home and no time to go to numerous stores to lug one home myself. On the 6th, the bed frame still had not arrived. I emailed customer service stating my disappointment and need to have the $25 shipping fee credited as it had been way beyond 2 days. It is now the 10th and my item still has not arrived. I called customer service and waited on hold for 14 minutes. The “customer service” representative hung up on me. I called back the furniture department and spoke to an apparent “customer service manager” Consuela who informed me that as a policy, JC Penney does not track expedited packages from UPS and there is no way of knowing where my product is. (As we all know, every package shipped UPS or USPS for that matter has a tracking #). The product shipped on the 4th from Reno NV and apparently it takes 8 days or more to get to Los Angeles CA (an 8 hr car ride away). I told her to cancel my order and refund my money. She told me that I needed to wait another week just to see if I get the order and if it hasn’t come by then, she would file a report and track it for me. If she has the ability to track the order in another week, why not today? Sounds like someone refusing to assist a customer and do some actual paperwork. This has been the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. I will no longer shop at or accept gifts bought at JC Penney. It’s a shame in this economy that a company so large would employ staff that is so inept and refuses to do their job. My next step will be to file an official complaint with the better business bureau and consumer complaint agency if this matter isn’t resolved.


Karen Simpkins December 6, 2013 at 1:39 pm

The “on the floor” and .com reps have been outstanding except the in-store managers are allll confused about the return policy. They say it is NOT as stated on the website (as of 12/5/2013) and is no longer “HAPPY RETURNS” (on the front page of the website only a few weeks ago) It is…some have said 45 days some have said 90. ALWAYS 90 on .com/
And that “happy returns” NOW means they are happy to take it back within that period of time. I have been at checkout many times and have never seen this sign they pull out when I have made a return which states 90 days. I’ve called and asked salespeople I know if there is a sign up at that moment stating such and they don’t know what I am talking about!! WHAT THE HECK IS THE POLICY? I buy a lot of mdse from JCP and don’t want to ruin my relationships with the dept managers or salespeople, but I guess it’s time to fight! Technically, the receipt IS A CONTRACT. when I sign my name and say charge it and I will pay, they should honor the other side of that receipt which has NO time frame stipulation on it for returns. Should I report this as a disputable charge since they are not honoring our “contract” i.e. the receipt?!!


RS December 4, 2013 at 11:28 pm

I have received several coupons from JCP saying “we’ve missed you” come back and save! I recently decided to shop at JCP and utilize my 25% off coupon, when I came to the register I presented my coupon and merchandise. I then remembered that I wanted to look at the jeans that were right across from the register, literally three feet away! I asked could keep the coupon until I took a look at the jeans, the associate stated that she had to keep the coupon because It was a one time use. I asked for a manager and she agreed with the associate. I feel that JCP should not cry about their sales falling and then in turn treat customers in that manner. I have never had a problem with any other retail store not wanting me to keep my coupon to do MORE shopping the the same day! I guess I will continue to shop at MACY’s and other retail stores that really want my business. JCP@Cary Town Center, Cary N.C.

Never Again will I order from them.
I ordered a nursery chair from them and realized seconds later that I ordered the wrong product. I called them immediately back to ask if I can cancel this order and replace it. The customer service rep did not even let me finish talking and said I could not cancel the order even though it was not scheduled to ship for +3 weeks from order date. The customer service rep was super rude and very short with me. I told her I will dispute the charge if she is not willing to work with me. (Note there is no notification at time of order that you can not cancel your order).
I asked my husband to call another rep and see if he has more luck. The first call the rep told him no problem we will cancel the order. I got a voice mail from them asking which item to cancel. So he calls back a second time and they rep tells him the order can not be canceled and hung up on him. Third call he spoke to another rep (since the previous one hung up), and she told him that the order will be canceled and to call back the next day to confirm it. I get another voice mail asking me about which items to cancel (I had 3 voice mails by then). So my husband called again spoke to another rep who assured him that the order will be canceled for both items.
My initial request would have been just to trade off the product (which was even more money then the original item). But with how rude this company was to us, the hassle they have put us through I will refuse to purchase or do any business with them in future. For a big company such as JC Penny, I would have really not expected this type of treatment. NEVER AGAIN and I suggest you find another place that has MUCH better customer service.
Good Luck.”

To Whom it May Concern:
I went to the Ross Park Mall in Pittsburgh, PA to do a little shopping at JCPenney”s and another store. I was checking out at a store in the mall and it they were just about to close as I was checking out. I checked out and headed back to JCPenney’s since I parked in their lot. It was about 7:04 and the doors were locked. I was unable to get to my car. The sales associates were standing right there and wouldn’t open the door for me, so I could get to my car. They were so rude and ignorant. I am on disability and live in a lot of pain and can’t stand or walk for more than 30 minutes. I explained that through the glass door to the sales clerks and they still wouldn’t let me in. Meanwhile, the store still had shoppers in it. The girls told me that I had to go through Macy’s and walk outside all the way around the mall in the cold to get my car. I told them I was disables and there was no way I was able to walk that far due to my disability. The security guards employeed by Simon told me they couldn’t help me as well, that a JCPenney sales associate would have to let me in. I stood at the door for 20 minutes, in a lot of pain, and needed to get home and off my feet. I think that it is ridiculous, that a mall department store locks their doors at exactly closing time, not giving their customers access to get to their cars! People go to malls to go to other stores as well. JCPenneys need to allow their custormers get to their cars!!! Especially anyone that is disabled, elderly, pregnant, have little ones, or health conditions. Their was a sign at the JCP door that read: “FOR OUR CUSTOMERS WITH A DISABILITY, SHOULD YOU EXPERIENCE ANY DIFFICULTY IN OUR STORE, PLEASE ASK A JCPENNEY ASSOCIATE FOR ASSISTANCE”. Well, I did and they ignored me at first, then were totally rude and when the realized I wasn’t walking all the way around the mall (after 20 minutes standing their waiting) they finally had a manager open the dorr. I think it is bullcrap and will never park in JCPenneys parking lot again, I don’t even think I will shop there again.
The door policy needs to be changed, until then I won’t go anywhere near that store for my Holiday shopping. Thank you for your time.


Margie December 10, 2013 at 9:35 am

I never did hear you say you were shopping at J C Penney. Sounds like you parked near J C Penney to get to another store. I work at JC Penney and for security reasons when the doors are closed they ARE CLOSED. We start letting our customers know that we will be closing every 5 minutes starting at 15 minutes before closing, A lot of us employees at this time of year after working up to 12 hours on our feet want to go home. Just because the doors are closed we are not done working. The store needs to be recovered and the registers closed. My suggestion to you would be to plan your shopping a little earlier in the day. Oh by the way, yes there might have been customers still in the store. Once the doors are closed the customers are allowed to finish their shopping. Yes, even though they know we are closing they continue to shopping. The 20 minutes you stood there you could have walked to your car!!!!


el January 15, 2014 at 11:09 pm

Clearly, the woman stated she cannot walk for long. Maybe you have not experienced this sort of health limitation, but empathy is good for business and humanity.
I hope the best for Penneys, it’s been a main shopping store in my lifetime. But the baby boomers are aging and if you want their business then think about what you need to do to keep them.
I understand low wage employees can develop attitudes like the rest of us. But if your store goes under, the alternative is to be a no wage unemployed person. Which do you prefer?
This current culture has promoted attitude over serving the customer. In the past we showed gratitude for those who chose to spend their money in our store. Gratitude.
Maybe corporate business’ lose touch with the individual. Too bad


Don December 1, 2013 at 4:01 am

Your latest piece of garbage commercial set to the tune of “Do you hear what I hear” is the absolute worst move in a long series of recent bad moves by your company. I don’t have a problem with using secular Christmas carols to sell merchandise, but to cheapen the birth of Christ to encourage greed is unconscionable. I do not plan to spend another “Penney” at your stores. Will go to Dillard’s instead; they have better quality merchandise anyway and more importantly, were NOT open Thanksgiving. Some things are more important than money, believe it or not.


John Lomaga December 3, 2013 at 3:36 pm

Thanks Don. Merry Christmas ! John


John Lomaga November 27, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Very disappointed in your advertising department in thinking that using a traditional Christian Christmas Carol ( Do You Here What I Here, which depicts the birth of Christ) into a “catchy” little buy, buy, buy,spend your $$$$$$ at J C Penny ditty. J C Penny should be ashamed at this association to increase holiday sales. Using the typical holiday songs are one thing but to depict the birth of Christ or any similar related song to increase revenue is unforgivable. They really missed the TRUE meaning of Christmas for millions big time. We feel that an apology is required and an immediate termination of this TV commercial. I for one will not shop J C Penny and I hope others as well will agree.


Don December 1, 2013 at 4:03 am

Well said, John


Jcpenney employee November 27, 2013 at 1:50 pm

I just wanted to personally thank you for ruining my thanksgiving with your corporate greed. Because of you, I won’t get to spend any time with my family, boyfriend, or friends this year due to my split Black Friday shift. I work my backside off week after week for this company, and all I ask for are my two guaranteed days off a year: thanksgiving and Christmas. I mean, come on, isn’t Black Friday hard enough on us? What’s next, we’ll be open on Christmas next year? Hope ruining the holiday for thousands or your employees will be worth the extra buck (that you may or not make). Happy gray Thursday.


angry as well November 28, 2013 at 11:53 am

I really feel for you! I think it’s absolutely rediculous that JCP has to open on a MAJOR holiday because they think they have to do whatever other bs stores are doing! They don’t! Thanks to JCP doing this, I will be alone because my family will be working later today and all weekend and all next week with no day off for quite a while!!! Thank you so very much JCP for ruining not only your employees holidays but their families holidays as well!!!! Hope you’re all very happy with yourselves as all you greedy corporate people eat with your families on your DAYS OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sharon H. Kavanagh November 24, 2013 at 3:30 pm

Shame on Penney’s for opening on Thanksgiving day.
We will not use our charge cards or make any purchases at our Eugene, Oregon store or at any other Penney’s this year.

James November 12, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Please be advised that I am a veteran, retired with 25 years in the United States Marine Corps as a field grade officer with two combat tours and rated 60% disabled by the Veterans Administration. I also have a wife who is presently serving in the United States Navy as a Commander at Quantico Marine Corps Installation. First, let me say that not only have I and my family been loyal customers throughout the years, but also my parents and grandparents. Second, we have always done our holiday, birthday, and back to school shopping at JCPenney stores along with routine purchases throughout the year. Until recently (12 Nov 2013), I have always had great experiences with JCPenney store locations in Michigan, North Carolina, Northern Virginia (Woodbridge, Manassas, Springfield, etc..) with store transactions and returns. However, the FREDERICKSBURG JCPenney location was a terrible experience enough to cut my ties with all JCPenney locations.
The following is my experience that took place today at your FREDERICKSBURG location:
My wife and I purchased around $900.00 worth of JCPenney merchandise a few months ago on a JCPenney Card. Out of the merchandise bought were two STAFFORD suits and shirts that were on sale at the time. Not long after purchasing the clothing, I had a major accident where I broke the two main bones in my arm and shattered the left elbow that had to be replaced with an artificial transition joint head. I spent about 5 months recovering and lost a significant amount of weight. I have since recovered and was planning on attending a job fair for veterans with a high level security clearance in the Washington D.C. District. I desired to only trade in the two suits and shirts (only valued at $180.00) for smaller sizes. I did not have a receipt in my possession but did not foresee any problem with a fair swap since they were not worn and still had all labels and price tags attached. I entered the FREDERICKSBURG JCPenney location where I asked the cashier if I could just do an even exchange. His reply was “Not a problem,” and proceeded to point me to a corner of the store where the suits and shirts were located after kindly taking my measurements. He even came back to assist after I was searching on the wrong rack and stated, “Come over here, these are your suits on this rack.” He found my correct size and matched a black coat and blue coat with the right pants. After trying on the suits for correct fit and finally locating the two shirts I went back to the cashier who then stated, “I need a receipt to do anything for you.” I told him that as I previously mentioned that it was a while back and I had an injury so I do not have a copy of the receipt. He then asked, “Was it on a JCPenney Card?” I did not know for sure, so we tried my social security number and a card transaction did not appear. He then suggested that we try my wife for a card transaction. I did not have her social security number written down, so I asked to use the phone for a local call. After being told that a phone was not usable for the call, a lady whom I let go ahead of me to make her purchase generously offered me her phone to call my wife. After speaking to my wife, she informed me that indeed the purchases were made on her JCPenney Card. The cashier could not bring up her transactions and the lady who let me used her phone states, “Oh, the same thing just happened to me and my husband a few weeks ago.” The cashier then scanned the price tags still on the clothing and stated that he could offer, “$7 for the suit coats and $2 a piece for the shirts.” At that point I asked, “Why such the low price return when clearly the clothing is marked with the sale prices highlighted with red tags?” He then stated, “I know our policy is ridiculous, same company makes, same material, same brand but different numbers that do not match.” I was confused over the whole process and was willing to walk away and hope that my wife would locate the receipt at home or if not I would donate the clothes to GOODWILL. As I was departing the cashier said, ”Would you like to talk to a manager?” Whereas, I then replied, “Sure, why not.” I was then pointed to Kenny, the FREDERICKSBURG floor manager and again explained my situation. Kenny explained that what the cashier said is true and that the suits and shirts were phased out and the $7 a coat and $2 a shirt was the right price for a return. He then explained that even $7 was high for a suit coat and that some were sold for even less than $7! Kenny said that they sold many for those low prices but did not have any more to swap out. He then said he could swap out the pants for me but then reneged after seeing that I bought them on sale also for $20 apiece. I asked if I could still exchange for what I paid for them and make up the difference out of pocket since the prices were still attached with all labels and shirts still in the plastic with sale price attached. Kenny then explained that because of the way the system is set up and prices yet reduced only the return on the last lowest price is given. The cashier apologized several times that he could not return or exchange the merchandise and also for the way the system and store policy filters purchases through. I was a little disheartened by the lack of genuine concern and/or remorse shown by the manager at the FREDERICKSBURG location. Along with the fact that he called to the cashier that he needed to check the JCPenny clothing bag I brought the two suits in to ensure that the suits were not swapped out with the sizes I needed. This was humiliating and degrading as a loyal customer for many past years. It also called into play my integrity and character after faithfully serving my country in uniform for 25 years. Ironically, this had to transpire the day after VETERANS DAY! Also, ironically, I had to exchange some jeans from WalMart around the same time I purchased the JCpenney suits. Upon entering WalMart after departing JCPenney I was not only addressed by Sir, but also thanked for my military service after showing my ID for the exchange. WalMart easily scanned and exchanged for smaller sizes. It is very sad indeed that JCPenney just ran a VETERANS DAY SALE to the general public but could not better assist a real veteran the day after VETERANS DAY! I ask nothing from this letter but to only express my deepest regret that I will no longer purchase anything from JCPenney in the future. For other customer’s sake, it may be beneficial to explain the receipt policy up front before saying, “No problem” on an exchange and taking up a customer time for an hour and 20 minutes after searching, trying on clothing and waiting to exchange. Also, advance technology like what WalMart uses that scans a label and shows the exact amount the customer paid at the time would be a vital asset to the JCPenney distribution team. And most helpful would be to always remember, never let a customer feel cheated out of his or her purchase by saying that suit coats purchased for $50 apiece are worth only $7 and shirts paid for $20 apiece are worth only $2! Or to make a customer feel like a thief by conducting a security check on a bag of clothing as he or she is departing the store. Especially a retired veteran who fought for your freedom! On the brighter side, the clothes have been donated to GOODWILL.

I was in the Salon in Eastdale Mall location in Montgomery, Alabama. My stylist Shantia Barnes was doing a wonderful job and was so sweet. I enjoyed the Customer service. And my sew in was also amazing. I have referred alot of my friends to Shantia. She really brighten the place up what a wonderful experience. I will be going back.


ashley November 5, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I was in the salon at the jcp in chillicothe Ohio, getting my hair done when i over heard the salon manager telling another stylist that she didn’t have to charge a customer for all of her services so she would get her hair done. I felt that was very unfair to other customers like me who Pay full price, even when the prices are now outrageous! It was also very unprofessional of the salon manager, not only to allow this, but to discuss it in hearing distance to other customers. She is obviously not helping pennys reputation or sales, which are already in big trouble!

I am a recent retiree – i have contacted powerline 3 times to find out where my direct deposit pension payment is – i have 3 different answers – and no money. I was a faithful associate for over 19 years – and retired because of these that were not fair with distribution of hours etc. I chose to be faithful to JCP and retired. I just want to know where my pension is. I have been on hold today for 60 minutes and 30 minutes. Really!
I just want to make sure that my pension payment did not error or was not processed correctly. I have paperwork that states it was to be issued on November 1 – and I have a rep tell me it takes 7 days to deposit – and one that said oh – that was deposted on 10/28 and takes 10 days to clear – non of them bothered to even verify the info – ask me the info – just assumed….. well, today is November 4 and there is no money deposited. Please just respond by email as i want the correct answer – not a generic response to a very important question.

Thank you Powerline. I finally got through and talk to a very nice representative who explained to me how retirement pensions are deposited. She verify everything and made me feel reassured that I have filled everything out correctly and that it just takes a few days. Thank you so much for being the company that I worked for all these years. Just waiting for my gold card now so that i can enjoy my discount again.

I’m a jcp stock holder and feel like the company should give training on how to smile and greet customers. Hire someone to do just that. Because most of your customers is just getting off of work and had a bad day, that when a employee is there with a smile and and saying HELLO, will lift are customers up from that miserable day. It don’t hurt to smile or be nice I do it everyday at my job if I like someone or not, that’s the way my mother taught need to dress the the displays better to catch the eyes of are customer. Younger generation like designer clothes that’s were you need to put someone in that department that no there stuff. If you change these things and a few more things your numbers will go up…

P.S. you have gotten rid of great products like Stafford shirts, waverly curtains, and valances…etc…YOU are running yourselves out of business…..Listen to the consumers….buy what we like at a fair price …..stop wasting money for a” NEW look” We hate your new look……teach customer service to managers and staff (could take a lesson from Wegmans Co. on that one ….very successful in that dept) and support good customer service………………………..

Visalia CA Store has rude Managers and treat their employees unfairly and with no respect.

I had an unexpected experience at JC Penny this past Saturday. I was in the dressing room and begin undressing when I hear two men in the women’s fitting room having a conversation. I put my clothes back on and went to find a manager. I was shocked of what came out of the managers mouth.
He stated it was nothing he can do because all of the fitting rooms are considered as unisex fitting rooms. Another lady was waiting for the men to come out, asked the manager why aren’t the fitting rooms not labeled? He said that’s a corporate issue.

Another lady stated supposed her young daughters were in the dressing room and she didn’t know men were allowed to come in, that would put her daughters at risk of being raped or malester .

I knocked on the door and told the men to get out that this was a women’s fitting, since the manager didn’t have the gusts do it.

Here’s my problem with jcp ‘Rome ga’ store 2452 kris cheeks something about her is not right if your a sprital person you can fill it things are not right in that store i can tell it on the employees faces now don’t get me wrong some hide it very well I’ve seen a hand full of people come to my job for help for more money but the way she has their hours there. is no way possible for your employees to get help. one older lady told me about two of your employees one house is falling apart and she has to take care of her sick mother and the other is a young lady who has a sick child her house got burnt down and shes expecting anotherw child these people need help at that store if jcp can’t help their employees maybe the news or a lawyer can and who knows how many others have problems jcp should care just as much about your employees as you do customers they. are the ones making us happy although i don’t know how good of workers they are or. how long they have been there and after all the things i was told about how there’s no. soap to wash dishes no paper towels to clean up messes how the older people are being tricked into more than one card someone needs to check on theses things God sees all and knows all this company has lost way to many values mr penney had for this company when i was growing up I’ve been debating on making a complaint or to go to the media but its a big deal when you can’t provide for your family all because of a job maybe ill write a few more people that matter in this world to see what they think and to see if they can help it would be grate if someone could help the women I’ve heard about their in my heart and prayers and i pray that they will get the help soon

Another great product gone! JCP HAD the greatest no-iron men’s shirt. The Stafford Performance,The Super Shirt, Big 18-1/2. 34-35, 79009-7 RN 93677, Cotton/Poly blend 60/40 Broadcloth was by far the best no-iron shirt for the money. The only other comparable shirt in my opinion would be the very expensive Men’s Warehouse no-iron shirts. Please bring it back!


Joe October 1, 2013 at 10:58 pm

Dear, J.C. Penny

I have an Idea on how you can get more customers into your stores. I would go back if you would do this. and i bet other people would too. After 5 months of extensive researching at my local JCP, i have found that there are things that need to change, the spending and shopping algorithms of shoppers.


Michael October 1, 2013 at 6:50 pm

The board of directors, as part of the plan to turn around the company, should change the name to Jaycy’s (like Maycy’s) or JC’s. The name Penney is outdated ! ! If they wish to keep it they could write it as Jaycy’s with Penney written in much smaller text size.

We must remember that the same initials are used for Jesus Christ. When people are in church and hear JC, they will start thinking of J.C. Penney stores.

Hello Myron:
Don’t be offended that I called you Myron. Right now I feel like the family member everyone hates to invite over for Thanksgiving dinner. As such, I feel like you’re part of the family and I have a right to call you Myron. Family members tend to treat family members rough because they just assume they will always come back despite how bad the treatment. However, I think this family member has had more than a lifetime of abuse in the last month from my JC Penney side of the family. My husband introduced me to JC Penney over 32 years ago. Without exception the only reason he travels to the Annapolis mall is because he’s a loyal family member. Well, I’m at the point of filing for a divorce from my JC Penney family. I know you have your hands full trying to keep the JC Penney doors open. Actually, I didn’t think JC Penney would still be in business until you returned to the helm. Over the past 32 years I think I’ve purchased all my window treatments for every home we’ve owed from JC Penney. I’ve even sold some of my window treatments when I wanted a change. All my previous experiences have been satisfying with the exception of my most recent purchase. I originally ordered Levolor custom shades samples. The samples came “3 weeks” after I made the order for my window covering. I ordered samples from other suppliers that arrived in less than a week via USPS. In this day and age I’m not sure what’s up with the JC Penney extreme snail mail. It’s hard to blame it on the mailing system when your completion can get them to my house in a matter of days not weeks. I purchased Levolor custom shades from your Annapolis Maryland location. The shades were delivered to my home as agreed upon, after the delivery I went back to the mall to arrange installation of the blinds. I then arranged to have all my windows cleaned before installation of my new window treatments. Well, today is Saturday September 28th and they have not been installed. I scheduled my install date for the 27th of September 2013. On the 27th I call the number supplied to contact the installer more than 3 times and just got a voicemail account. I called the Annapolis Mall store that then proceeded to call the same voice mail account. I have an event at my home tomorrow evening and no window treatments. To make matters worse I haven’t been contacted about the installation plus I have to pay for this bad service.
Other problems: The reduction in check out registers is noticeable. I thought you were in the business of moving consumer product. When I have to spend more time locating a cashier versus the merchandise there’s a problem. The previous setup ensured that “each exit” to the store had a cashier location. That minor item passed the common sense test and the customer usability test. Now I sit at an exit that doesn’t have a cashier but is close to my parking spot waiting for my husband that’s searching for his clothing. Upon completing the search for his new clothing, the search starts for a location that will allow him to part with his money and leave with his precious items. While he’s will to do that I’m not. I want the check out process to be swift and convenient, the current flow is neither.


Penelope Wakeland September 27, 2013 at 9:16 am

I too was told that no one could help me. I made a purchase of window shade (cut to order) and was asked if I would like to apply for a credit card to receive 10% off the order. I also had gift cards for an additional $225. It took 2 hours in the store to place the order and when I received my first bill none of the items reflected the 10% off or the $225 in gift cards. I called customer service and was told they could not help me. To add insult to injury when I was checking prices this week all the shades are 50% off!!!! This is still not resolved but until it is I will only be paying the amount on my credit card that I actually owe!!!!!


KB September 28, 2013 at 8:45 am

Tell the store that you are going to return items and repurchase to get the reduced prices. In most cases they may just adjust your bill to the reduced price. As for the $225 in gift cards, why didn’t you look at your reciept before you left the store. The $225 should have been taken directly of at the register. You just got ripped off for $225.00

The fish stinks from the head! Apparently, the Big Boys are more interested in reading reports from one another than listening to their customers. First, they need to do some major training in management for upper level to train all employees in good service. There are numerous models to study from Container Store to Discount Tire. Second, they need to create a new department to be placed at the main entrance of the stores. It would combine the jcp red, white, and blue logo with Made in America. It would have many products, all made in America. Wake up, Ron Johnson, you are missing out on a big opportunity, or are you unaware that many Americans want to buy American…even if it costs a little more.
Third, your current clothing and reputation makes it difficult to get people into the store. The Penney’s I remember from the 50’s, shopping with my mom, attracted customers with a middle class All-American feel. You are definitely at a crossroad. Hope you will help save what was once a great company. I have no stock in JCP, but I love a good come-back story…sure hope you can pull it off!


el January 15, 2014 at 11:47 pm

I completely agree with you. I search and search for items Made in America. When all I find is Made in China, I walk out without buying a thing. I would rather purchase U.S. made 100% cotton sheets at a thrift store than buy artificial inferior products made in countries who prosper elitists by forcing slave labor.
And the All American feel you mention–you are spot on. I want that back.
I can see where it may be tough. The employees would have to share that spirit, and that would mean hiring the right people.
That would take effort on the company’s part to enlist the right people to work for them.


Michelle Dean-Davis September 25, 2013 at 11:20 pm

Your customer service representative at was extremely rude to me in regards to an order which I placed on September 7th, 2013 and the money for this purchase was taken from my account on September 10, 2013. They cannot seem to find my order at in-store customer service. I was told by Tiffany your customer service rep that I could not cancel the order because they can take however long they want to get it to the store; I read on the JCP website that in-store delivery takes 4-7 business days and I would be notified once my shipment was checked in at the store. She said there was nothing I could do about it so, I asked for her supervisor. Before Marissa the supervisor could retrieve the call Tiffany did not place the phone on hold, therefore I heard whole entire conversation about “BROKE A** CUSTOMERS”. When Marissa got the phone I reported the incident to her and what I overheard, she apologized which is not enough at this point I feel as though the company needs to take action to remedy this situation. I feel as though an apology needs to made and my money refunded AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
By the way, the reason why I was cancelling the order was because I went into the Northlake JC Penney store and purchased the necessary items for my grandchildren. I will be returning these items within the next 24 hours. Also, I will be informing my family and friends about this horrible experience that I had with this company starting from Derrick the customer service representative at the Stone crest Mall JC Penney location who said he could handle the cancellation and would call me back but failed to do so as of yet; to your rude customer service representative at Please inform your customer service representative at that I am not broke and needing my money back because of it. When I went into your Northlake mall location I spent over $400 cash in the store on purchases.
