BY Marianne Wilson

New York — The fight over Martha Stewart resumed with both Macy’s and J.C. Penney Co. back in a New York court on Monday. The trial, over whether Macy’s has an exclusive right to sell select Martha Stewart home goods items, resumed after a month-long mediation effort failed to yield a settlement.

On Monday, Macy’s alleged Penney has begun selling some items on its website that infringe on Macy’s exclusive deal with Martha Stewart.

BY Staff Writer

Scottsdale, Ariz. — JDA Software Group announced that Bob Evans Farms will deploy a JDA workforce management solution (formerly RedPrairie WFM) in approximately 565 Bob Evans restaurants.

Bob Evans selected JDA to help improve forecasting and scheduling of labor, drive proper placement of staff throughout the course of the day and provide exceptional service to every customer.

We are very excited to kick-off the next generation of labor management solutions at Bob Evans,” said Harvey Brownlee, chief restaurant operations officer, Bob Evans Farms. “The journey started in May 2011 with a cross functional team tasked with identifying a solution that could deliver a balanced approach to managing labor. Our goals were to drive strong guest satisfaction, improve ease of operation, and improve the team member experience while delivering shareholder value. After a thorough evaluation of seven potential partners, RedPrairie (now JDA) was selected as our partner of choice.”

JDA’s WFM implementation at Bob Evans will start with a pilot stage in the second quarter of 2013, followed by initial deployment in the third quarter. Solution capabilities will include optimized scheduling, time and attendance, employee self-service, performance management and mobile applications including JDA Mobile Shift Connect, JDA Mobile Employee Connect and JDA Mobile Manager Connect.

Reports: Costco looks to develop e-commerce in China

BY Alaric Dearment

New York — Costco Wholesale appears to be eyeing China’s online commerce market, according to published reports.

The Southern Metropolis Daily, a newspaper based in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, reported Thursday that the Issaquah, Wash.-based club retailer was interested in entering the country’s e-commerce market and was in the process of looking for local partners.

The chain currently doesn’t operate stores in mainland China, but has nine locations in Taiwan. Walmart and French mass-merchandise chain Carrefour also have a long-standing presence in the mainland.

The newspaper reported that Costco was attracted by the growth of China’s e-commerce market, which in 2012 reached $193.4 billion, making it the world’s second largest after the United States.
