First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By Ro­ge­lio Yu­beta Oli­vas, news ed­i­tor

A let­ter writer in last week’s Ku­dos from Read­ers praised JCPen­ney em­ploy­ees here for their be­hav­ior on Black Fri­day.

Here’s my JC Pen­ney story: When my mother died 15 years ago in Tuc­son, my brother and I were in need of black suits for the fu­neral. We de­cided to go to­gether to the big­gest mall in town.

We de­cided to go suit­hunt­ing on our own and meet up an hour later. I went to a cou­ple of stores but didn’t see any­thing I liked, so I ven­tured into JCPen­ney.

A young man in the suit de­part­ment asked what he could help me find. I told him, then he took my mea­sure­ments. He brought over a very nice suit that was a per­fect fit for me.

I thanked him for be­ing so at­ten­tive and pro­fes­sional, then I went to meet my brother near the mall exit. As I got closer to him I could see that he also had a suit bag draped over his shoul­der. To my sur­prise, it also was from JCPen­ney! We had both tried other stores and ended up at JCP at dif­fer­ent times. He also praised the em­ploy­ees and cus­tomer ser­vice there.

To this day, JCP has a spe­cial place in my heart be­cause it helped get me and my brother through a very dif­fi­cult time in our lives.
