JCPenney’s history is bound to the legacy of our founder, James Cash Penney, who established honor, courage, service, and cooperation as guiding principles in the life of a JCPenney associate. These values have been at the forefront of our Company history and continue to guide us into the future.
J.C. Penney, in full J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc., formerly J.C. Penney Stores Company (1913–24) and J.C. Penney Co. (1924–68), American retail company, founded in 1902 by James Cash Penney and today engaged in marketing apparel, home furnishings, jewelry, cosmetics, and cookware.
At JCPenney, we’ve been committed to building strong, vibrant communities since James Cash Penney founded the Company on the Golden Rule in 1902. Today, we are passionate about helping underserved students build the confidence they need to stay engaged in school, attend college, and prepare for a rewarding career.
In 1922, the company's oldest active private brand, Big Mac work clothes, was launched. The company opened its 500th store in 1924 in Hamilton, Missouri, James Cash Penney's hometown. By the opening of the 1,000th store in 1928, gross business had reached $190 million (equivalent to $3 billion in 2023).
As a Company founded on the Golden Rule, our success is rooted in the belief that we treat everyone the way we would want to be treated. Working at JCPenney means joining a dedicated team of associates who are encouraged to be uniquely themselves in a collaborative and inclusive environment.
