    Whatever happened to job security!

     
  2. Who shops there? I'll go to Kohl's or shop online if I need shoes, a tie, or dress shirts.

    I do.
    But it will be interesting to see what he does with the strategy of the redesign; eliminating or scaling down departments like housewares and pump up Martha Stewart and Michael Graves.

    I've started going back there since they've revamped the men's section. Nick Wooster is designing the jcp line for the store.

    I couldn't tell you where one is near me.

    If you're anywhere near a mall, you're almost certainly near one.

    I don't thinks so.

    I take care of espresso machines at all of the malls near me. Can't think of a single J.C. Penney.

    I'm going to check their site.

    Nearest one is 9 miles away.

    The closest stores are all in what I would call lesser quality malls or shopping centers. Not an espresso machine in site.

    And, you're not going to find an espresso machine in a Penney's anytime soon (as opposed to Nordstom's, Target, and Macy's):

    And, Caribou's shrinking too:

    I can't remember the last time I set foot in one. You'd have to say the expansion of Macy's and emergence of Target buried them, right?

    Hmm, that's strange, YF. Most malls have as standard anchors Sears/Penney's/Macy's (usually replacing whatever chain it bought out back in 2006)/Lord and Taylor or Nordstroms or whatever the strong regional department stoey is. The sketchy malls are ones with less than four anchors or if one of the anchors is a Walmart or Target.

    I agree with Kohl's, and you can add Belk to that, over JC Penney. I think the last time I was in JC Penney I tried on some pants I liked, scanned the bar code, found I could get them about $10 cheaper per pair off Amazon and ordered them.
