JCPenney in test of smaller off-mall unit
November 10, 2003,
The new JCPenney store in nearby Cedar Hills is designed as the prototype for the company's off-mall department stores.
The 95,000 square foot store — smaller than most Penney department stores — opened last week with a number of consumer-friendly attributes: one level, wider aisles, brighter lighting, bigger signage that is more directional, checkouts at entrances, and stroller/shopping carts.
Merchandise selection and presentation in home is pretty much as it is in other Penney units, a spokesperson explained.
But the store is easier to shop. The company anticipates this store will comfortably exceed the $140 sales per square foot of its department stores in 2002.
