***3 out of 5 stars***

With the holiday shopping season quickly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to do a review on the new JC Penney's store in Fort Collins. They recently moved from the Foothills Fashion Mall into its own unit on South College (the building that used to hold Shopko).

The store is so much nicer than the Shopko or its old location in the mall. The store is huge, and provides greater space and selection than the mall. It looks very trendy and was already decorated for the Christmas season. It was fun to walk around and see all of what they have inside. The format reminded me of Kohl's and made me wonder if they are trying to mimic Kohl's success of a department store outside of the traditional mall setting. They have everything from clothes, shoes, kids stuff, bedding, and they moved the Beauty Shop as well. There is a large parking lot and the store is very wide open with tall ceilings.

The prices were surprisingly good on this visit, as they were doing a special "Buy one at normal price, get the second for .99". I was able to pick up two pairs of jeans for less than $30 and also got some Christmas shopping in as well. There was not a department in the store that was not running this special. I'm not sure if it was a national sale, or one for a "grand-opening" for this store.

Make sure and go to the new JC Penney's store. You will be pleasantly surprised with the look of the store and the prices it offers.
