I was walking through the mall today – and I came upon a sign in JC Penny’s. To you young folk, “JCP”. It stated, “Not finding it in the store? We’ll order and ship it to the store for free.*”. I walked past the sign and had to go back. Really? “Free”? You really needed to mention that you won’t charge the customer extra to have an order shipped from your warehouse to your store with the rest of the stuff that ships every day? Wow! What a deal! Thanks a lot! I really appreciate that! </sarcasm>

And don’t forget to read the fine print. “Free shipping does not apply to items delivered via truck”. So what does this mean, exactly? I imagine the “deal” (free) only applies to small items. So if JCP doesn’t have an item in stock they’re going to charge you to ship the item from their warehouse to their store so you can go pick it up. Hilarious…

JCP – if you want to brag about something you’re offering for “free” – why not allow your customer to have the item shipped to their HOME free of charge? Wouldn’t THAT be something?!

Wow! Free! Plus, read the fine print...
