JCPenney Provides 40 Percent Discount & Apparel Items for One Cent to Customers Affected by Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Our hearts go out to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. As relief efforts transition from rescue to recovery, we’re extending a special 40 percent discount to assist our friends and neighbors with their home and apparel recovery needs. The discount is available for a limited time beginning tomorrow, Sept. 2, in the JCPenney stores that were directly impacted by the storm, and will be automatically applied during checkout.

Additionally, as families look to replace their children’s back-to-school clothing items, these same stores will feature specially marked “Penney Racks,” offering end of season merchandise for just a penny. Customers may purchase up to two children’s apparel items for one cent each.

Approximately 23 JCPenney stores were affected by the storm. Nearly all locations have been re-opened, most with limited hours. The following stores will be providing the 40 percent discount and “Penney Racks”:
