JCPenny opened its first set of doors back in 1902 and today there are over 1,000 stores nationwide. Children's clothing can be found here, in addition to styles for the whole family and home furnishings. In addition to their stores, they also have the JCPenny outlet stores as well as their well-rounded website.

The Good

  • Great styles and designs
  • Website is easy to navigate
  • Advanced search options

When it comes to kids' clothing options, JCPenny offers today's hottest styles, colors and designs in dresses and dress wear, shorts and shirts and swimwear. Similarly, they have the top brand names in footwear, such as Converse, Nike and Reebok.

Their website makes it easy to find that perfect item. Search boxes on the right allow to find the perfect color, size, brand and style. Customers can select as many specifics as they would like to find the exact item they are searching.

For clothing searches, break down the hunt by gender, size, color and style. This is ideal when your daughter needs a purple polka dot dress, or your little boy needs a yellow pin-striped short sleeved dress shirt. Let the ease of JCPenny's website be your personal shopping assistant.

The Bad

  • Customer complaints
  • Customer service issues

There are plenty of complaints on review sites on the internet. These complaints were mostly about customer service. A small number of complaints about customer service is nothing to worry about because that could just be a customer or employee having a bad day but when complaints start to pile up about customer service we start to worry about the companies culture and reputation.

The Bottom Line

I recommend shopping at JCPenny, but also recommend the old adage, "buyers beware". Arizona brand seems to be a solid choice, but before purchasing clothes for the kids in your life, be sure to take a minute and glance over the stitchery on the shirts, seam lines on jeans, etc.

John M. Dickson Jr Washington, DC

4/29/21 the manager in the men's clothing department exhibited attributes of character akin to nobility. I deemed it most important to convey that to his corporate superiors. He is truly an asset to the larger corporation. In a very simple matter where wrong could have been done he did the right thing and for that I am terribly grateful in a society where that does not always happen. Mr. John Malcolm Dickson Jr. He is truly amazing.

I bought my Homecoming dress at JCPenneys in November of 2018. That dress made my entire night memorable and left an impressionable mark on the people who greeted me. There is one employee in particular, Katrina C, that has made my experience even greater. This employee has shown great salesperson skills, including the directory of clothing and the confidence of a passionate employee, and she also shows wonderful leadership skills, where she doesn’t let down a challenge. Although others will doubt her, she has great skills with sales and online order, although recently she had forgotten how to do a cash order from online. She never backs down when things are hard. This employee has many social skills and emphasizes the importance of appearance and elegance. She has fashion skills and she has the skills to make any outfit look amazing. I would highly recommend this employee to anyone looking for a beautiful or business outfit. She has shown very polite manners and always greets with a smile.

Tiffany in the Alma Michigan store was such a help, my father & I have spent 3 days trying to get the right curtains for his odd shaped windows. Many purchases & returns. We were returning a purchase we made & Tiffany was helping then mentioned she was knowledgable in this area... long of it she was extremely!! She explained, recommended & even placed a order for us as the store didn't have the volume we needed. I'm so Thankful....Thank you Again Tiffany Robyn

At the Porters Vale JCPenney in Valparaiso, IN I came in for an exchange since the boots I bought online were too small. Unfortunately because I got them at an awesome sale price, they didn’t have the same styles anymore. Jacqueline went above and beyond to help me find those styles online, reordered them and I even got them at the same price!! She was so sweet and friendly to me and my 1 year old daughter. I really appreciated her excellent customer service and just genuine friendly personality. I will definitely be back!!

I've always loved the JCPenney's. I still remember this day very vividly. I went into the store to try on jeans. I've been watching my weight and exercising after I had my second baby and I fit into a size 8 jeans ( yay ) it was the happiest day of my life!!!! I stayed at a size 8 for 20-plus years until I got in a car wreck 4 years ago now I'm struggling a little bit with keeping that balance but I will one day get in that size 8 again. I absolutely love there customer service. Amazing people there are so beyond helpful they will do anything for you!!!! One of my favorite stores.

Coral ,

On the 3/3/2020 went to JC Penney in Quaker Bridge Mall. Received outstanding customer service by Eileen. Because of her I returned the next day and made other purchases. She was one of three cashiers I encountered that day.. I usually shop nearest to me in PA . But that has changed . Kudos to Elieen.
