Apple just fired John Browett who replaced Ron Johnson as Apple's head of retail. Ron Johnson is busy recreating JCPenney. So far it has not worked so well. I do not think he will give up and go back to Apple. JCPenney got some tractions with unusual freebies recently. You got a free back-to-school hair cut for your kids with purchase. And now for the Holidays you get a free family portrait.
JCPenney is tries to be fair and square with their pricing. The fashion retailer killed coupons and tried a simple pricing scheme according to Time Business & Money. This was apparently more confusing for consumers and JCPenney actually will have sales again.
Ron Johnson said that there will be a JCPenney Black Friday 2012, but it needs to be fair and square and not gimmicky. Here is a simple idea: 40% off everything in the store, no exceptions. That is fair and square.
Black Friday 2012 is on November 23, 2012. Once again the whole month of November will be the filled with great Black Friday deals and sales.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
