DALLAS — After a “painful” year of transforming J.C. Penney Co. Inc. and taking heat from Wall Street and losing customers because of it, chairman and chief executive officer Ron Johnson finally got some love Wednesday.
Johnson previewed the company’s Dallas mock-up of its store of the future to 300 investors and retail analysts, got some positive feedback and summarized some good results from new shops installed throughout the chain.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
