NEW YORK — J.C. Penney Co. Inc.’s sourcing has taken on an increasingly American flavor in recent seasons.
Luis Capuano, Penney’s country manager for the Western Hemisphere, said the Plano, Tex.-based midtier department store chain last year registered a 30 percent increase in imports from Mexico, Central America and South America. Production is about evenly split between wovens, including shirts and denim and twill bottoms, and a variety of knits.
