JC Penney Could Face Empty Shelves for Housewares

March 5, 2013

J.C. Penney, which is struggling with big losses and steep sales declines, could face another challenge: empty shelves.

New York State Supreme Court Judge Jeffrey Oing told Penney's attorneys on Monday that the chain took a risk by ordering towels, cookware and other products from the company that home diva Martha Stewart founded. In fact, Oing said he could force Penney to stop the products from heading to the shelves this spring even as they come off the docks.

"That's the risk your client took," Oing said. "Ultimately, you guys played it out."
