I’ll put it this way – this is not your grandmother’s Penney’s. Make sure you check the stand-up mall map and take a camera phone pic of the “JCPENNY” on the way in if you’ve got a short memory, because you may not recognize it from the inside if you get caught in the right departments. JCPENNEY’s has made gigantic strides in the fashion world by bringing in lines like I HEART RONSON, BISOU BISOU, and most recently, MNG by MANGO. Designed as its own boutique within the store, the MNG by MANGO line is a knock out. Mango, known as a ruler of “fast fashion,” made its name competing favorably with stores like ZARA and H&M. It’s as updated as you’ll find, with trendy blazers, chunky jewelry, and lady-like dresses galore. You’ll feel like you took a weekend trip to Vegas to get the looks that elude you here in the Beehive State…until now!
