    I only heard a snipett the other day, JCP is no longer going to have catalog order? I know they discontinued the big catalogs but does this mean no internet catalog either.....?

    Not sure about the Internet part - I also heard they are closing stores. The days of catalog browsing are gone - end of an era. I still have the last Wish Book that Sears put out. Grandma would give me her old catalogs to cut up and make paper dolls out of :)

    Wow, I hadnt heard that....it makes me sad. I like ordering from the catalog. We get alot from them. The stores will just not have the selection and sizes.

    according to http://multichannelmerchant.com/cata...alog-business/

    J.C. Penney will instead distribute "look books." These resemble catalogs but carry less merchandise, have no catalog item numbers and refer customers to Penney’s website for information about styles, sizes and colors.

    Honestly - I can't think of the last time I wanted a full catalog from JC Penney (or Sears). If I want something, I generally go to their website and/or order from there.

    The article I read in the paper said they were keeping their internet website/catalog to order from.

    A lot of the large companies feel that more people use the internet than catalogs and they are so expensive to print that they are discontinuing them. I just got a notice that our local telephone directory will no longer be available because people are using the internet. I really feel for the people that don't have computers !!

    I know, my neighbors dont have one and she is always asking me to look up things for her....I am sure she would like to have one but her DH is a little on the cheap side.

    I'll be happy as lomg as I can still order online!
