Major Box Store To Offer Free Kids Haircuts Permenantly On Sundays

09.10.12 | Sarah Harnisch

After a big responce to its free haircut for kids program last month, (1.6 million haircuts, to be exact), J.C. Penney says it plans to make the offer permenant every Sunday, starting in November. The company has 11-hundred stores nationwide, and 949 of them have salons. The hairstylists earn hourly wages and are no longer paid on commission, so they were being paid anyway. As part of their overall mission, Penney will also be offering free haircuts to breast cancer survivors in October, which is breast cancer awareness month. New CEO Ron Johnson's is trying to re-energize the chain.
