JCPenney's Will Now Have In-Store Barber Shops and More: Do You Shop at the Department Store?

If you've been in a JCPenney's department store in the past couple years, you may have noticed that it's changed a bit since you shopped your last "back to school" sale. Month-long sales have come and gone, Sephora stores have popped up in the big department stores, and Project Runway's Nina Garcia joined the team, all in hopes of bringing the chain back to profitability.

After undergoing subtle changes and various pricing strategies, JC Penney's is about to be completely revamped and turned into a department store comprised of small boutiques. Included in these boutiques will be their own Arizona Jean Co, a Betsey Johnson shop, a denim bar, in-store barber shops and much more. Each boutique will have a different aesthetic, and you'll be able to check out using an iPad.

These changes will be made in August and to celebrate, JC Penney's is giving free haircuts to kindergartners and grade school students all next month. I haven't been to a JCPenney's in a long time, but now I'm actually excited to check it out. Are you?

COCOPEREZ.COM reports:
It seems like bringing Nina Garcia onboard was just the beginning. As another part of JCPenney´s renovation, Ron Johnson, the company´s CEO, will be putting boutiques, shops and stores inside the larger shopping space.

    Ever since JCPenney's defended their choice for Ellen Degeneres as its spokeswoman and took a stance against One Million Moms, I've been a big fan of the store...

    It's not solely a political issue. It's a socio-political issue, meaning it's both social and political.

    I use to go to their salon because I knew the stylist had to know what they're doing to work there and I USE to go there for some jeans too. That was a few years ago though.

    Less and less. though. Their prices have been pretty bad since the "new pricing and advertising strategy" took over. Their clearance is a complete joke, as they'll have a shirt that is clearance priced at $30.

    They already threw one scapegoat under the bus. I honestly hope they realize their mistakes before it is too late. This new Boutique store idea has the employees and customers ranging from cringing to neutral and I'm getting worried.

    As a long time shopper, I know "Fair and Square" is not working for better prices for the consumer.

    This is not new for JC Penney's......the one I shopped at with my mother has always had a salon, barber, kitchen boutique, and makeup boutique. Since at least 1984 (that's as far back as I remember shopping there) As for others, I always supposed that it depended on the location and market since no two stores I went to were much alike.

    Not anymore. I worked for 8 years at a Penney store in the 70's, it had a barber shop.

    Of COURSE I do. love Penneys.

    I like their new pricing, but HATE their high end section. The really pretty stuff is super, super expensive.

    I visited a JCP store a couple of months ago- it was joke. I went looking for three items; the store had none of them, BUT the salesperson suggested I order online using the store computer system- which was down.
