J.C. Penney will start selling Stewart goods


NEW YORK — J.C. Penney Co. Inc. isn’t waiting for a final court decision.

The retailer has begun to sell the Martha Stewart “JCP Everyday” line of home goods, even while a court battle with Macy’s continues over the domestic diva’s home goods.

A judge ruled earlier this month that J.C. Penney could sell certain Martha Stewart-designed goods under the “JCP Everyday” label, at least until an appeal by Macy’s is decided. A ruling on the appeal could come as early as this week.
