Back to School Deal Alert!

I’ve been going to JCPenney (now better known as the more hip… jcp) since I was 18. I was the receptionist at the store in the Paradise Valley Mall while I went to beauty school. That’s right! I was a beauty school drop out! Well… not really. I completed the nail technology program and was promoted from receptionist to nail technician in the salon.

I still go there. In fact… if you’re in the Phoenix area… you should be seeing Brian Sullivan for all of your hair needs. He’s been with me through blonde, brunette, and red… long, short, and in between. He’s even given me amazing hair extensions. But… I digress… we’re here to talk about an amazing Back to School Deal!

During the month of August… all 949 jcp locations will be giving FREE haircuts to kids! For reals. Just take your little ones in during the month of August and you’ll score a free back-to-school hair cut (K-6th)!  In addition… jcp will be donating $1 for every head of hair cut on August 1st. These donations go to support The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and 4H.

Don’t need a hair cut? There’s an eye wear special at jcp too! You can get a complete pair of eyeglasses for $25 for kids ages 16 and under.

The focus of this campaign is for jcp to be a part of helping families and kids look and feel their best for the new school year. So be a part of the initiative and visit your local jcp salon for a kids haircut on August 1st to benefit The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and 4H.

Did you know?

The BGCA officially began in 1906 and annually serves more than 4 million young people each year through membership and community outreach!


*Disclosure: I was given a nifty gift card to jcp for sharing this awesome deal with you. I’d share it anyway… who doesn’t love a good deal?
