J.C. Penney Company, Inc., commonly known as JCPenney, is one of America’s leading retailers that focuses on offering high-quality apparel, accessories, jewelry, fashion products and home furnishings to customers around the world.

About JCPenney’s history

Founded in 1902 by James Cash Penney and William Henry McManus, JCPenney operates a chain of department stores throughout the continental United States, Alaska and Puerto Rico and, internationally with an online shop.

Having been in business for over 100 years, the retailer has weathered the Great Depression and multiple recessions, and continues to adapt its business strategy. For example, JCPenney recognized that millennials were coming of house-buying age, and has focused on relaunching it’s appliance brand (because who doesn’t love a new fridge or washer and dryer?).
