JC Penney kicks off New look. New day. Who knew
J. C. Penney Company, Inc. announced the launch of its 2010 spring marketing campaign, with the overriding goal of helping customers discover the new, higher level of fashion in its merchandise assortments. Over the last several years, JCPenney has made dramatic strides in "stepping up" its style and, as a result, now offers a better, more exciting shopping experience than ever before. To celebrate this, the banner for new campaign is: "New look. New day. Who knew." The campaign will launch March 7th, during the Company's exclusive retail sponsorship of the Academy Awards.
"We have made it our mission to bring a level of affordable style to our customers that they cannot find anywhere else. For those who have not shopped with us recently, customers will see it as a new day for JCPenney," said Myron E. (Mike) Ullman, III, chairman and chief executive officer. "Highlighting some of our most-coveted brands, our new, integrated marketing campaign is designed to show America what they will discover at JCPenney."
Recent merchandise additions from the hottest design and style experts, like Allen Schwartz, Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen and Cindy Crawford, join fast-fashion brands City Streets and Decree in Juniors, and a compelling line-up of powerful private brands like Worthington, a.n.a , Stafford, Linden Street and Ambrielle, establishes JCPenney as the destination for today's must-have fashions for apparel and home. With the opening of more Sephora inside JCPenney beauty boutiques, the upcoming launches of Liz Claiborne and MNG by Mango, customers will have more reasons to shop JCPenney than ever before.

Additionally, a 30-second spot showcasing JCPenney's new Juniors brand, Olsenboye, will premiere during the pre-Oscar coverage on ABC and E!
