JCPenney Changing Logo to More Familiar Look

    J.C. Penney Co. says they're going back to this old, more familiar logo.

    JCPenney is reverting to their old logo.

    In an effort to lure back customers, the Plano-based retailer is ditching their current logo in favor of something arguably more recognizable -- their old logo.

    JCPenney said research indicated customers overwhelmingly preferred the old look instead of the one adopted under now-former CEO Ron Johnson.

    In Johnson's 2012 JCPenney logo, the company was referred to as simply JCP with the letters in white centered inside a blue box that sat at the top left of a red frame -- a design that was somewhat reminiscent of the American flag.

    The re-introduced logo reads as JCPenney, with no other fanfare.

    The retro look will soon roll out in print and digital items as well as on the company's credit card.
