Hudson's Bay comparable-store sales grew by 6.2 percent, while Lord & Taylor's comps slipped 1.2 percent. E-commerce sales jumped 56.1 percent to $37.3 million.
"This performance has been driven by a continued focus on our stated strategic initiatives," said Richard Baker, the company's governor and chief executive officer.
"We are seeing strong performance from stores and departments that have recently received capital investments," he said. "We are also pleased by the continued growth of our e-commerce sales, which accelerated in the second quarter and are up approximately 45 percent year-to-date following our re-launch of both banner websites. Our online business was a key factor in our results, and reflects our increased investment in this component of our business. We are confident that our inventory is well-positioned for the fall season and expect stronger financial performance from Lord & Taylor and the overall business in the back half of the year."
