More than 320 guests take advantage of sales and discounts
MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University students, families, faculty, staff and alumni packed JCPenney’s Murray, Kentucky location for the University’s latest JCPenney Suit-Up event.
Participants could stop by and take an extra 60 percent off men and women’s dress apparel and shoes.
This year, more than 320 attendees took advantage of the significant sales and discounts.
Matthew Purdy, director of Murray State University Career Services, said the Career Services team received plenty of great feedback on the latest sale.
“We were especially happy at the number of faculty and staff that attended the event, as well as all the parents that came out for it as well,” Purdy said. “Planning has already started for the fall Suit-Up, and we’re looking for ways to further enhance this event for our students, alumni, faculty and staff.”
Career Services also offers a Career Closet that provides donated professional attire for students.
The Career Closet features various sizes of gently-used business professional clothing. Racers have the opportunity to come in and shop for suits, shirts, skirts, blouses, shoes and other accessories — all free of charge. Students are limited to one outfit per semester.
