THE J. C. PENNEY CO, A NATION WIDE INSTITUTION
Giving You the Markets Lowest Prices
The J. C. Penney Co. Merchandising Methods
Triumph .Under Test
The merchandising metlieds of this store and every one of the two hundred and ninety
seven J. C, Penney Company Stores, dates back to the starting of the mother store at
Kemmerer, Wyo., by Mr. J. C, Penney.
He began with a few simple principals rigidly executed - those of giving the customers the
best possible merchandise at the lowest possible price Holding down the overhead expenses
by selling for cash with no deliveries so that we could be content with only a small margin
of profit and giving the customer the benefit of every lower cost.
Since then these simple principles have grown to a splendid and scientific system with oiir
enermous purchasing power of two hundred ninety seven stores, giving more and. more
value, and marshalling all the resources of modern merchandising to give our merchandise
into the hands of the people at an honorable and honest cost.
These policies and principals have never changed and never will be changed by so much as a
hair's breadth and they have come to be recognized as the J. C. Penney Company principals
from' coast to coast where ever this institution, is known.
All this has happened as Mr. J. C. Penney planned it.
Today people who are careful buyers know that the J. C. Penney Company give better
values and better service for less money than any retail institution in America.
When the market was rising continually this institution was content with its regular small
margin of profit and never changed it all during the time of inflation of prices.
We bought merchandise on the lowest possible, market added our usual small margin of
profit and fought to keep down the priees to our customers.
Today with the markets reversed we are the first to take advantage of the lowered costs as
with our enormous buying power tve deal directly with the manufactueer and do not have to
wait for the reductions to be handed down through a jobber.
Today's lower market prices are our prices and we offer you the savings as they come to us.
