J.C. Penney Return / Refund / Exchange Policies
On the surface this appears to be a fairly liberal return policy, but note that J.C. Penney reserves the right to limit returns or exchanges. This will not normally be invoked, but there is a risk that this clause could be invoked to thwart returns.
Note that the customer is responsible for shipping charges when returning by mail, returning to a J.C. Penney store is the fasted and cheapest option.
“Quick and Easy Returns
Our goal is to make an exchange or refund as fair and easy as possible.
