Macy’s wins temporary ban against some J.C. Penney Martha Stewart sales

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — The latest round in the battle between Macy’s and J.C. Penney over the sale of Martha Stewart goods went to Macy’s, which on Monday challenged a judge’s decision on Friday to allow certain non-branded Martha Steward items to be sold — at least temporarily — in J.C. Penney stores under the JCP Everyday label.

Macy’s announced Wednesday that it won its appeal, as Richard T. Andrias, an associate justice with the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division in Manhattan, ruled during a closed hearing in Manhattan Tuesday that J.C. Penney would be banned from selling Martha Stewart Living-designed goods under the Penney label until he rules on the retailer’s request for a temporary restraining order blocking the sales.

The Macy’s announcement came via an emailed statement by the retailer’s spokesman Jim Sluzewski, but the court has not yet confirmed the decision.

Macy’s is suing both New York-based Martha Stewart Living and Plano, Texas-based J.C. Penney, alleging that sales of products designed by Stewart’s company in J.C. Penney stores violate an exclusivity deal between Martha Stewart and Macy’s signed in 2006.

Hudson Group launches new travel retail concept

BY Katherine Boccaccio

East Rutherford, N.J. — Travel retailer Hudson Group, owner of the Hudson News airport stores, said Tuesday it has launched a new retail concept called Hudson, with the first unit slated to open at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport’s Central Terminal.

The 3,500-sq.-ft. store moves beyond the traditional newsstand and offers travel-related products such as electronics and media-related items; health and beauty aids; meals, snacks and beverages; locally and regionally themed merchandise from the Puget Sound region; as well as the standard magazines and books.

"We have had the new Hudson concept under development for some time,” said Joe DiDomizio, president and CEO, Hudson Group. “Our goal was to redesign our core concept to create a more open, friendly and welcoming environment for travelers. We have accomplished this not only with the creation of ‘smart’ tablets mounted directly on our displays, but through whimsical, color-coded signage to attract customers’ attention to featured products and promotions."
