    Now that their company is tanking they want to play the moral card, just less than a year after their two mom mothers day ads and two dad fathers day ads.

    We were told by an ex penny manager/now financial advisor that the ceo was not long to last and this morning on the news it was reported they are thinking of selling out due to the financial woes.

    Their finances are not altogether related to ads/stance but some faulty business changes under the ceo and his leaders - changes that have run off many old-timer customers with the big money.

    I worked for them and they were making some very questionable decisions ten years ago. JC rolled over in his grave and started digging to china to get away from his beloved company years ago.

    I was there 10 years ago, too. Spent 16 years there in fact. When they brought on Vanessa and Questrom, it marked the beginning of the end. The "Mike's" just drove the stakes in further.
