    [$$] 5 Steps to Fix J.C. Penney

    Investor skepticism that J.C. Penney could orchestrate a turnaround has been building for years. Now the company must find a new boss—its fourth in seven years—following the departure of CEO Marvin Ellison, who plans to quit on June 1 and will take over as chief executive of Lowe’s. Ellison’s turnaround plan involved closing more than 140 stores, cutting jobs, streamlining operations, and improving the merchandise mix. The plan was working, to some extent, with J.C.
