Maybe their marketing experts know more than you do about marketing. Assuming JCP is just out to make more money (which, of course, their sole purpose for being in business) they must figure that hiring somebody with national credibility is more important than losing you and a couple of dozen other idiots as customers. That's several hundred dollars in profit they'll lose over the course of a lifetime.

I'm sure JC Penny is just devastated that they're losing dozens of dollars with your boycott. In case you didn't notice, OMM called off their dumb little protest because it got them nothing but utter humiliation--didn't work out too well for you either, by the looks of it.
