Macy’s sues J.C. Penney over Martha Stewart Living contract

Judge already temporarily blocked sale of MSL products in J.C. Penney stores

A judge temporarily blocking J.C. Penney Co. Inc. from selling Martha Stewart products wasn’t enough for Macy’s Inc. The upscale New York-based department store is out for blood—taking its beef with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. (MSLO) and J.C. Penney to the next level.

The whole ordeal started back in January, when Macy’s sued MSLO after the latter entered an agreement with J.C. Penney to open Martha Stewart Living shops within its stores. The suit claimed the media and merchandising company breached its contract with Macy’s when it entered into an agreement with J.C. Penney because Macy’s had an exclusive agreement with MSLO to sell Martha Stewart Living products.
