Pray For Boston

timthumb.php

 

I’m a Boston Girl and the bombing that happened on yesterday in Boston at the Marathon saddened my heart. Although it is a sad sight to see my heart is uplifted at the unity and selflessness shown on the day of the horrible event and from the various cities across the country and people at the race. This is not only an attack on my city, but it is an attack on our nation, on our world as the marathon is a world wide event. I pray that the persons responsible are brought to justice and I pray for healing and strength for my  my state, my city, my neighbors, the injured and the families of the ones that have passed on. God Bless their souls. Please pray for Boston, pray for Massachusetts, pray for our country pray for our world! Boston will solider on!

JCPenny’s New Approach To Sales

jcpenny

Have you seen those JCPenny Commercial where people are screaming No! at sales?  Well here’s the skinny on whats up: it turns out the retailer is taking a new approach to its markdowns. Instead of having several arbitrarily-discounted sales throughout the year, they’re biting the bullet and slashing prices at least 40% or more, so there is no excuse for shoppers to wait for sales to get a good deal. So that means at JC Penney, the new regular price for a $20 blouse would be $10. It will be interesting to see if this approach actually increases revenue for the company. In these tough economic times, consumers are more inclined to wait for sales in order to save money on the items they want and need. But if those items are perpetually on sale, it could encourage more spending. We’ll see what happens! (The Cut)

With discounts like that… I MOST certainly have to stop in!
