Neiman-Marcus sees sales drop
January 7, 2002,
Underscoring the problems confronting retailers of upscale and luxury goods in a recessionary environment, Neiman-Marcus said same-store sales fell 3 percent during the all-important Christmas selling season.
Hardest hit was the specialty retail stores segment — including Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman stores — where same-store sales dropped off by 4.4 percent.
For the 22 weeks year-to-date of the current fiscal year, same-store sales are off at an accelerated pace of 6.7 percent. Total store revenues, boosted by new store openings, fell by 5.7 percent, to $1.41 billion from $1.45 billion the prior year. Neiman Marcus' 2002 fiscal year ends Aug. 3.
