People hate Penney's because they decided to drop the word "Sale" from every price in their building?

That's not a Penney's problem, that's just a problem with American consumers. Look at Kohl's. They don't have any prices listed in their stores that don't include the word "Sale". Penney's had many of the same products at the same prices. People just see the word "Sale" and immediately flock to their stores to buy stuff.

 

Sad

J. C. Penny might do better if they would trash their magazine sales though some company that apparently sells magazine subscriptions for a wide range of magazine companies.  If I want a magazine, I want it from the magazine company. I don't want a magazine billed to me by some other company.  And, Dish network has boxes that just go off if you don't use the remote for a while.  Hard to program, I have found.  But if I had to pick five companies I hate, it would be five of the legal drug lords.  Any four after Merck who recently admitted their junk was worse than no good: that it had serious side effects they would't tell the doctors about. And next, any or all of their local legal drug dealers..called pharmacies.  Those places kill too many people and get away with it.

FIVE?  5?  V?

Why is this list so arbitrarily restricted.  There are a lot more than five corporate villains out there and every one of us is free to hate any one of them at any given time on an ad-hoc basis.

I worked for Citi as a contractor.  It wasn't believable what an insane cesspool Citi is inside its fancy doors.  They have no responsibility toward their customers AT ALL.

I agree about Dish Network. A very poor company with no people skills...

I agree with noodle...who cares?

These companies will fail in due time, it's unfortunate that the leaders of these companies think that they know better what's best for the customer.  They should be made to suffer with their own products and services and punishment.
