Ellen and JC Penney

I went shopping at JC Penney today.

I guess didn’t realize that there was a store, literally, down the street from me. I wanted to say thank you to the department store for supporting Ellen DeGeneres and standing up to the campaign brought on by the angry conservative organization, One Million Moms in their attempt to have Ellen dropped as a spokesperson.

Why this angry organization chose JC Penney and not the entire ocean of other things that Ellen has endorsed is beyond my understanding. I guess the hate group’s boycott on Blue Tang didn’t have as much headline grabbing sensationalism. I was ecstatic to see that JC Penney arose to the battle cry and stepped up to support Ellen.
The best way for me to support this, after calling JCP and thanking them, was to do what I do best, go shopping at the one hundred year old chain store, headquartered in Plano, Texas. The funny thing was that this “boycott” put JC Penney back on my radar. I never really realized that they had a nice new store ten blocks from my house. Now, it’s on my list of neighborhood stores.

Yes, I’ll admit that I had to think about what the heck I’d buy in a Penney’s until I spotted the Sephora counter and stocked up on Philosophy’s microdelivery exfoliating wash. I then wandered around and was surprised at what a great store the Ellen had introduced me too. Now I have clean skin, Sweet and harmless Ellen is more of a role model of what is right in America, a corporation stood up to yet another bigoted, angry hate group, and most importantly JC Penney has a new customer.
