There's a sale at Penney's!
Yes, the deals are back with a vengeance at J.C. Penney (JCP) after the "fair and square pricing" experiment turned into a debacle. In August alone, there were more than 20 sales and coupons. Some of these were specific to product lines, but there were plenty of across-the-board sales, including a 20 percent-off online sale, a $10-off-$25 apparel coupon, and a 25 percent off sale that was good in-stores and online. In fact, more than half the days in August saw some kind of universal sale at the retailer. And even when there wasn't a big sale or coupon, there were also a number of department-specific sales, including a sale offering 40 percent to 50 percent off in the bedding, bath, window and luggage departments.
