It won't make much difference to me. I don't shop regularly at JCP so I didn't keep up with all of the sales and coupons but I was aware (from advertising) that there seemed to always be a sale going on, or some kind of coupon. So for my occasional visit there it will probably be better to just have lower prices and not have to think about timing my shopping trip to catch a promotion.

I absolutely love it! I live in a small town and we have a mini JC Penneys. I can always find great bargains there during their sales and now knowing that it'll be everyday pricing is even better!

I've noticed that too at Macy's. The one downtown has a lot more office appropriate apparel than the other nearby Macys, understandably. The one in the mall with a Target and some off-price stores has more casual clothes and more items at a lower price point. There's an upscale mall with Neiman Marcus, designer boutiques, etc and that Macy's has mostly higher end merchandise. Interestingly, that is the mall where the closest Penneys is and I don't think of Penneys in the same category with Nordstrom and Bloomingdales--especially with the new JCP pricing plan. But that Penneys has been in that location for over 30 years, back when that mall wasn't so fancypants. There are several other malls in the metro area and some of them have Penneys but I'm not very familiar with those malls or their demographics. If they moved Penneys to the mall with the Target I would probably shop there more often.

I still miss Mervyn's.
