Retailer JCPenney has announced its new JCPenney Home Services. The program, which launches this month, will test-drive six different programs in select markets and will perform " turn-key services for heating and cooling systems, bathroom remodeling, quick ship and installed blinds, whole home water solutions and awnings, as well as easy-to-install smart home devices," according to a press release from the company.

Each program will be presented as an informative, compact display located within the home department in approximately 100 stores this spring, with services and marketing varying by location. The Company has also launched a digital storefront at jcpenneyhomeservices.comcbtardcfwwbueawrytyd, where users can shop the range of professional services offered and schedule an in-home consultation. An authorized contractor will then determine the scope of the job and provide an estimate for the total cost. JCPenney will introduce a JCPenney Home Services credit card this summer, enabling customers to take advantage of attractive promotional financing offers.

JCPenney says it will partner with manufacturers and service providers such as Samsung and Trane to complete the work for clients.
