Gina Clifton sent a message to Marvin R. Ellison - President of J. C. Penney Company Inc.- email address that said:
As a frequent shopper at the JC Penney retail store in Corinth MS, I am one of many disappointed in the closing of this store. At the executive level you have no idea how it hurts the smaller towns to take these businesses out. We cant always drive an hour or two to get things we need. And contrary to popular belief, Walmart doesnt have everything. Longtime workers will lose their jobs, after working in a store that seems to be busy every time weve gone there. Online shopping is not for everyone. Many of us still like going to an actual building and seeing the merchandise. The people of Corinth and the surrounding area will be sorry to lose this business. Unfortunately, the bottom line is all that counts these days.
