28. Good. Penney's did OK until this joker got in with his big ideas.

They need to remember who their customer base is: suburban, largely wealthier and largely middle aged and older women. I used to buy some stuff there. Now it's all made out of plastic and much of it is aimed at teenagers and 20 somethings. Trying to make it young and hip has cost them customers and they're not fooling the kids.

Old broads with money do spend it and old broads with money do like to look presentable. The old Penney's did a good job of that.
