Focused on customer service and satisfaction, Peebles is expanding rapidly up and down the East Coast with plans for stores in several new states over the next 3 years. Very similar to JC Penney in structure, merchandising, and pricing.
The name "Peebles" is most often mistaken for "pebbles"-when not just mispronounced-and is a constant source of irritation for employees.
