J.C. Penney Adds Stores

Correction March 16, 2009

Earlier Web versions of this story incorrectly suggested that J.C. Penney is "losing money."

J.C. Penney Co. is opening nine new stores across the U.S. this month, including a store in Manteca, Calif. Why is the company choosing to expand during an economic downturn?
