1913: James Cash Penney consolidates all partner interests in 34 Golden Rule stores and incorporates them as one Utah-based company named the J.C. Penney Company. The following year the company's headquarters were moved to New York City. Pictured is the "Mother Store," Penney's first Golden Rule store, which opened in Kemmerer, Wyoming, in 1902 and remains in operation as a J.C. Penney store today.
