Appeals court: J.C. Penny can sell unbranded Martha Stewart line

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — J.C. Penney Co. can continue to sell a line of Martha Stewart home goods it introduced last week under "JCP Everyday" brand pending the outcome of a trial with Macy’s, a New York appeals court ruled on Tuesday.

The court denied Macy’s request for a preliminary injunction blocking sale of the goods while a court battle continues over rights to the products.

The latest decision upholds an April 12 ruling by the judge in the trial, who refused to expand the block to include the "JCP Everyday" products.

Big Lots names Campisi CEO

BY Dan Berthiaume

Columbus, Ohio — Discount retailer Big Lots has named David Campisi, 57, as CEO and president of Big Lots, effective May 6. The 30-year-industry veteran most recently served as chairman and CEO of Respect Your Universe, a publicly traded company focused on premium performance apparel and equipment. Prior to that, he was an executive with The Sports Authority for nearly seven years, rising to become chairman and CEO.

"The board was attracted to David’s broad base of successful merchandising experience and his collaborative leadership skills," said Jeffrey P. Berger, chairman of the nominating and corporate governance committee and leader of the board’s search committee “Both of these characteristics were key to the board’s search and they are believed to be paramount as Big Lots enters its next phase of growth and evolution as a company."

Campisi succeeds Steve Fishman, who announced he would retire in December 2012. Fishman is also stepping down from the Big Lots board next month.
