jcpenney is agreeing this morning to settle a class-action lawsuit for $50 million. the legendary retailer faced accusations of tricking customers into thinking they were getting deeper discounts on sales by misrepresenting the original prices. penny's ceo says, quote, while we are confident of our position resolving the litigation removes any uncertainty and risk which we believe is in the best interest of our shareholders. melody talked with senior executives at jcpenney's about the case. what happened here? >> what happened is they're
8:11 am
being accused of false advertising. the idea is called price anchoring, where they advertise an item on sale. they list the original price. and the plaintiffs are saying the original price was overstated to make the discount appear bigger. here is the thing that i learned in researching this story. pricing is incredibly complicated by state. so in california. as an example. they have a rule that an item must be on the floor a third of the time before it's put on sale. so think about this. >> that's confusing. >> yes. >> jcpenney moves one million units a year, and the rules are different by state. >> wow. >> so this is a very, very complicated thing. easy to trip. >> they don't admit wrong-doing but agree to settle, which might make some people think they must be guilty. >> this was an arbitration.
8:12 am
would be anywhere from $20 million to $120 million. i think jcpenney said let's split the baby and get out of here and not have it hanging on our standing by. they also said they had a controversial ceo who came and went. he made statements around that period around pricing and changed policies back and forth that could have tripped them up here. they're not saying that publicly but that was my sense. >> as a customer i want to know will jcpenney make changes as a result of this and do you see other companies making changes? >> first of all, when you write a check for $50 million, i think you're going to watch very closely what the rules are. first and foremost -- >> you would think. >> they said price integrity is very important to them. and $50 million would probably make it even more important, but they are not the only ones in this situation. there are a number of class-action suits against kohl's, burlington coat factory,
8:13 am
a bunch of retailers are facing the issue specifically in california where they have stringent consumer protection regulations that help these kinds of lawsuits. >> yesterday macy reported a sharp drop in sales. how are they all doing? >> jcpenney's stock is up 30% while the index is down 30%. macy's had a tough day yesterday. they've been suggesting them. but the whole industry has definitely been under a cloud, and they've had to deal with the competition from companies like amazon that have taken market share. some have been slow to be online and there have been changes in shopping patterns for millennials. a host of issues they've had to deal with all at once. >> then black friday. >> and everyone is doing different things. that will be quite interesting
8:14 am
