For the second quarter ended July 31, 2021, net sales increased 101% year-over-year, representing a sequential improvement of approximately 700 basis points relative to the first quarter of fiscal 2021.
Traffic and sales trends were strong across both digital and stores as customers responded positively to expanded selection, better in-stock rates on top-selling items and enhanced pick-up options at stores. Nordstrom’s Anniversary event sales were a big contributor to the company’s success during the quarter.
“Our second quarter results demonstrate the strength of our two brands, the power of our ‘closer to you’ strategy and the success of our iconic Anniversary Sale. We capitalized on improving customer demand with focused execution, healthy inventory sell-through and continued expense management to deliver strong quarterly results. We remain focused on executing our strategy to win in our most important markets, broaden the reach of Nordstrom Rack and increase our digital velocity, and are well-positioned for continued progress toward our long-term strategic and financial goals as we look ahead to the second half of the year,” said Erik Nordstrom, Chief Executive Officer at Nordstrom, Inc.
