J. C. Penney operates department stores in the United States and Puerto Rico. It sells family apparel and footwear, accessories, fine and fashion jewelry, beauty products, and home furnishings. The Plano, TX-based company also provides various services, such as styling salons, optical, portrait photography, and custom decorating. The company offers various products and services online via its website, a platform that has been the nursery for industry giants like Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY). Its direct rivals include Kohl's (KSS) and Macy's (M), among others.
J.C Penney's most recent quarter results least impressive among peers
The company announced December quarter results on Wednesday, February 27, an event that sent the company's shares down the charts at Wall Street. The company's sales and revenues declined shamefully by huge margins. Revenues were down 25 percent for the quarter while Internet sales dipped 34 percent. On the other hand, Macy's online business soared 48 percent and looks set to take over what J.C Penney leaves behind.
Last year, J.C Penney sent home 19,000 staff, and recently trimmed its workforce by 2,200 employees as it sought to cut fixed costs following a tough campaign. Customers are losing trust in the Texas-based company despite the massive experience garnered over the years. The company did not impress in terms of market share, with fewer than 17 percent approaching the retailer's stores.
Contrary to J.C Penney, Macy's Q4 results tramped analyst expectations with sales increasing by 7.2 percent year-over-year to $9.35 billion. This included the extra weeks in the 2012 calendar. However, the management noted that, comparing the same number of weeks as 2011 sales grew by 3.9 percent. Operating income, excluding store closing costs and impairments in the quarter, was approximately $1.4 billion or nearly 15 percent of sales, up 11…...

... program participants. I conducted semi-structured interviews with forty-five self-employed street vendors – two thirds of whom were women, representative of the general population of approximately 400 street vendors who work in downtown Port of Spain. I draw on the interviews with the women street vendors in the analysis below. I also surveyed 140 street vendors. The majority of vendors surveyed were African-Caribbean women (61 percent) followed by AfricanCaribbean men (31 percent); Indian-Trinidadians compose less than ten percent of the vendors surveyed." Information from the survey provides a backdrop for considering the interviews with the women vendors. For example, 70 percent of vendors surveyed are the primary or sole income earners in their households, and an additional 13 percent share income earning responsibility equally with another member of the household. African-Caribbean women vendors are more likely than any other group to serve as main or sole income earners. The high percentage of vendors who are main income earners indicates that street vending is not casual work, but that it provides many families with a regular source of income. Most street vendors (63 percent) are in their 30s or 40s – ages at which labor force participation is most active – also suggesting that individuals engage in vending as regular and stable employment. In addition, most vendors have been vending for a considerable period of time: 24 percent of those surveyed have been vending for...

... 426 stores, or 38% of its retail operations. 120 stores lease the land they occupy. 680 stores occupy fully leased space (building and land) in both mall-based and off-mall stores, which represents 800 stores that incur rental expenses. (2010 Form 10-K: JCPenney Corporation, 2010) In addition, JCP supply chain network operates 26 facilities in 18 locations, 9 of which are owned. (JCPenney, 2011) These distribution centers account for 15,269,000 square feet for a total of 127,229,000 square feet. Since the company owns 50 percent of these centers, 7,634,500 square feet are not considered “leased” for purposes of the following rent calculation. In addition, square footage of the company’s warehouses, offices and other facilities are not a factor of this calculation. Rent expense for 2010 was $304,000,000 dollars. (2010 Form 10-K: JCPenney Corporation, 2010) Including the distribution centers, JCPenney pays approximately $3.44 per square foot for 88,434,500 square feet of space, or $41.25 per square foot per year. 800 stores that incur rental expenses equates to 80,800,000 square feet at 3.44 per square foot, or $277,952,000 of the reported $304 Million (91 percent) in rent expense is related to retail operations. In comparison to the national average of $131.74 per square foot annually (Moore, 2010), JCPenny pays much less at $28.80 per year. Other cities that fall within this price range per square foot are Phoenix, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, Cincinnati and Cleveland...

(More...) When it comes to the tenure of J.C. Penney's (JCP) CEO Ron Johnson, one of the first things to keep in mind is the fact his days at the helm of the department store giant could be numbered, especially if things don't change in the very near future. According to the Wall Street Journal, "Members of J.C. Penney's board will consider selling the company or replacing the chief executive if a deep drop in sales can't be reversed this year". Before we begin to ask ourselves what's gone wrong at J.C. Penney let's take a look at the company's initial plans to restructure. On January 24th, 2011, J.C. Penney Co. said "the company plans to close five underperforming department stores as part of a series of restructuring moves that will affect 3,900 jobs and to name William Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management and Steven Roth of Vornado Realty Trust (VNO) to its board". One of the first things to keep in mind is that the company's largest shareholder, activist...

Jcp Overview

...J.C. Penny started off selling work clothes and shoes to mining families in Wyoming. The basis of the how the company conducts business was actually its initial name as James Cash Penney, named the company the Golden Rule, showing that they want to provide the customer a buying experience that a J.C Penney employee would want to receive as a consumer.?? ( J.C. Penny grew from a small town store to multiple stores in the region by providing consistently high quality apparel that the whole family could depend on which attracted loyal customers. After expanding their stores throughout its existence, corporate headquarters has moved to Utah, to New York City, closer to the suppliers and consumers to decrease costs, then the latest moved to Texas because of the current lower cost of business compared to NYC. As Ron Johnson talks about a trouble company in JCPenny’s, he seems to be the most excited and in his element, seeing the opportunity for JCP to flourish (possibly add to this). He compares JCP to Apple when first joining the company, with the same market share, but with JCP having higher market cap, revenue, profit, and six times more customers, showing JCP is not as bad as what Apple was. Johnson started off in clothing retail, because he wanted to have a job he loved to do and that has shown to provide very positive results looking at the success of the last two companies he has left, with the businesses running very successfully. The new CEO explains that J.C...

Jcp External Analysis

.... Global Segment The emphasis for many retailers has shifted away from large-scale global expansion towards improving profitability and achieving greater business efficiency, with a focus on the information technology and supply chain functions in particular. An increasing number of companies are now outsourcing these areas, in a bid to achieve cost savings and, in the case of IT, to keep pace with the unprecedented level of technological advances. Retailers will not only be looking for growth in emerging markets; they will also look to innovate in multi-channel strategies, mobile and data analytics to maintain or grow their market shares in developed markets. INDUSTRY ENVIRONMENT Porter’s Five Forces Analysis Competitive Force Magnitude of Force Conclusion Intensity of Rivalry Moderately Strong May reduce profit potential of the industry Supplier Power Moderately Weak May increase profit potential of the industry Buyer power Moderately Strong May reduce profit potential of the industry Threat of Substitutes Moderately Strong May reduce profit potential of the industry Threat of New Entrants Moderately Weak May increase profit potential of the industry Overall Conclusion Majority of the forces are moderately strong that would lead down the profit potential of the industry Department stores industry contains organizations known as department stores mainly involved in retailing a wide variety of products such as clothing, cosmetics, footwear, and home...

...IT Project Implementation Failures Debra Carr HCS/483 August 7, 2014 James Thames IT Project Implementation Failures The typical information technology (IT) implementation begins once the health care organization has the IT system in place in the building and continues through the first weeks that the IT system is in real time use by the employees. The implementation process must be carefully planned, organized, announced to all employees, and followed closely throughout the following weeks while the IT system is installed. It is important for the management team to announce the IT project. The reason for the project, why the project is being implemented now, and the benefits of the project need to be communicated to all the employees. The CEO or COO should make the initial announcement so that all the employees understand that the project is approved at the top level. The CEO needs to display confidence and pride concerning the entire process. Once the instillation begins and throughout the process, the CEO should continue to update the employees on the progress of the project and any problems that are encountered. He should talk about his vision of the successful completion of the project and how it will benefit both the employees and the health care company. The senior executive should announce the establishment of an Implementation Team which will plan, manage, budget, and coordinate the IT project. The goals and objectives must be established...

...3 Essential qualities of information systems This chapter enumerates 3 essential qualities of useful information systems: readability, browsability, and searchability. In order to be useful, any information system must be readable, browsable, and searchable. This chapter enumerates guidelines and outlines qualities of readability, browsability, and searchability so you, as an information system manager, can incorporate these ideas into your products and services. An information system, in the present context, is any organized collection of information. In our culture, information systems abound. The dash board of our cars are information systems. Maps are information systems. World Wide Web servers are no exception. While World Wide Web servers are primarily intended to be an electronic publishing medium they are also information systems. In order to be most effective, all but the smallest of information systems must be readable, browsable, as well as searchable. All of these qualities (readability, browsability, and searchability) do not have to be equally represented in every information system. As your collection of information increases, different aspects of these qualities take on greater significance. Thus, the amount of readability, browsability, and searchability your information system exhibits depends on the type and quality of your collected data, as well as the information needs of your clientele. 1. Readability- Readability connotes an appealing...

...It is a market where all important information is available to all people involved at the same time and where the price responds immediately to the available information. | The primary markets deal with the trading of newly issued securities. The corporations, governments and companies issue securities like stocks and bonds when they need to raise capital. The investors can purchase the stocks or bonds issued by the companies. The secondary market is that part of the capital market that deals with the securities that are already issued in the primary market. The investors who purchase the newly issued securities in the primary market sell them in the secondary market. The secondary market needs to be transparent and highly liquid in nature as it deals with the already issued securities. In the secondary market, the value of a particular stock also varies from that of the face value. The resale value of the securities in the secondary market is dependent on the fluctuating interest rates. | Higher risk is associated with greater probability of higher return and lower risk with a greater probability of smaller return.

Jcp Customer Relationship Management Paper

... help the company reach a wide variety of customers. JCPenny needs to show their customers how they are making all those changes to satisfy the customers’ needs and make their visit to the stores more pleasant. The company should integrate an efficient training process to ensure that employees are informed of all the changes that are occurring so they can better explain to their customers if they are asked. And sending letters to the customers informing them of what is going on in the stores would add a personal communication experience with the customers. JCPenny could improve the shopping experience by seeking customer feedback by doing surveys to get a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t and what are customers’ concerns. Text messaging is another good way of communicating with customers. Sending SMS to inform customers of special sales and promotions is a good way to ensure that customers are getting the information on time. Mobile marketing is being used a lot by other retailers so implementing it would help JCPenny target its customers’ data base. I think that CRM is starting to replace the traditional marketing strategy. It helps create a relationship between the company and the customers directly; which is the most important factor in a business. It is very important for JCPenny to manage its relationship with its customers to improve sales. It is very easy for a company to attract new customers but it is a very hard task to retain them and make......
