Merry Mobile Shopping
Holiday shopping is easy with the JCPenney app for iPhone and Android mobile devices. Both versions offer "Snap 2 Shop(TM)," which leverages image recognition technology that allows users to simply snap a photo of any object to find the exact or like item on jcp.com for purchase. The JCPenney app also gives users the ability to locate the nearest JCPenney store, browse current sales events and quickly access coupons to apply at the register. In addition, customers can use the app to scan a barcode of any store item to access product information and determine its availability in various sizes and colors online or at nearby stores.
"The majority of shoppers will begin their research online before going into a store," said Michael Amend, executive vice president of omnichannel for JCPenney. "With an increasing number of customers using their mobile phones to influence where they shop and how they buy, it is important to have an app that offers the tools and services she's seeking to make her shopping quick and seamless."
