The commercial is pretty funny! all the sales are like, 5%, 67%, 42%, etc... Although few of their items actually sold at "regular" price, it will be nice to see lower and more honest prices rather than searching through those chaotic sale racks for something that is worth purchasing

Heck, maybe JCPenny will save more money by not having to print the ton of those sale signs all the time

and the environment :)
I always wondered why all the stores spent so much money - each sale they have to pay the employees to re-tag everything, hand the new signs, etc...that could be more money coming off the price!

The store clerk at the catalog dept. here told me this about a wk. ago, said they had a new CEO & to expect changes on pricing. Lower prices - fewer coupons.

Yep - their new CEO is the person that was in charge of Apple's retail stores.

I was just in my local JcPenneys a couple days ago and they had already started doing this. All the price tags had little stickers on them covering the price with new prices, like $10, 15, 20, etc. Its about time they just lower the prices on everything and stop having those stupid "LOWEST PRICE OF THE SEASON" sales every single week. Do they think we are that stupid that we don't know they inflate the prices on the price tags and then have a sale every day of the year!

AAAAMEN! All about marketing I guess. People wanna feel like they're getting deal when a lot of the time they're just playing with the prices and yo-yo-ing/redistributing..whatever u wanna call it!

Actually most people are. Ever notice all the plus ratings here for Aeropostale sales? Aero never sells anything at retail price. Except when they have a sale and the prices are the same they were the day before the sale but now they mark it off the retail price.
