J.C. Penney Co. is closing some stores, outlets and call center locations — including two in metro Atlanta — and continuing to work on an exit from its catalog business in an effort to streamline operations and boost profits, Associated Press is reporting.
The retailer’s exit of its legacy catalog business includes shuttering 19 outlet stores that carry a large amount of catalog merchandise, AP writes. Penney announced in November 2009 that it would stop publishing its twice-yearly “big book” catalogs.
Do you still shop by using a catalog? Or do you now go online? Which way works better for you?
