J.C. Penney checks show solid Joe Fresh launch, says Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank said its channel checks indicate the launch of Joe Fresh stores in J.C. Penny this past weekend was solid, with sales picking up as the weekend progressed. Deutsche says sales were driven by the Joe Fresh specific coupon of $10 off on any $50 purchase. The firm keeps a Hold rating on J.C. Penney shares.
