JCP’s home makeover

In case you haven’t noticed, the Miller Hill Mall’s JC Penney store has been going through quite a makeover in the last year or so.

We’ll not get into the controversy over that here, but the piece de resistance just might be what they’ve done to their upstairs home department. If you’re looking for eye-popping colorful housewares and home accessories, check it out.

The home departments at numerous JC Penney stores around the country have been renovated, with their celebratory unveilings this weekend, beginning today.

Similar to their revamped clothing departments that feature designer brands in distinct areas, the new home department boasts designers such as Michael Graves and Jonathan Adler. And despite that big court battle by Macy’s to keep Martha Stewart’s home offerings off JC Penney’s shelves, her stuff is there, too. (Yeah for us, since we don’t have a Macy’s anywhere near us).

That housewarming event at the Duluth JCP store (and others around the country) is today through Sunday.
