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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
