Behold this JC Penney Groupon, just in time for back-to-school shopping
People, there are currently major sales to be had.
As we gear up for the school season in Florida (most local kids go back Aug. 10), and tax-free weekend !this weekend! (Aug. 5-7), stores are doing whatever they can to lure the huddled sweaty shopping masses into their air-conditioned lairs.
Take this exciting promotion from JC Penney: a Groupon worth $20, for $10. Unlike most Groupons, this one is for a name-brand product you may actually want/need, not 40 percent off Mexican food at Los Comparres or 68 percent off an IPL Photofacial. For JCP, it's another big move, following their 1-cent promotions a couple months ago, to get people browsing their shelves after the retailer closed about 40 stores last year.
For back-to-school shopping, you can't beat JCP, or at least my '90s self couldn't beat JCP. It's where Mom and I would spend hours shopping the week before school started, after which I'd come home and lay out all the clothes on the floor before trying every item on again for a living-room fashion show.
