    According to Bloomberg the ad was created under Ron Johnson's watch.

    I saw the advert last night for the first time and thought the same. I googled around and saw that Bloomberg remark, but still. It seriously implied that they were sorry about Johnson.

    Johnson didn't make me come back to JCP, nor will their apologies. I have no reason to shop there personally.

    Groveling is unbecoming.

    During the ad, my wife (who knows nothing about Penney) looked at me and said, "What's this all about?". I could see her mentally puzzling through all the possible nasty/illegal/immoral things Penney might have done to bring themselves here. Acts so unspeakable, they were now begging our forgiveness on prime time.

    What was their sin again?

    Thank you.

    But that's a national pastime. Hardly a sin.

    Agreed! What a foolish move to draw more attention to all the terrible things you've done....that weren't really that bad.
