PARIS — Retail and luxury conglomerate Pinault-Printemps-Redoute failed to meet market expectations on Thursday as it reported weaker-than-expected second-quarter sales that were hampered by spring strikes and social unrest in its key French market, as well as its own portfolio trimming.

Sales in the three months through June 30 declined 9.7 percent to $6.68 billion, or 5.97 billion euros, from $7.4 billion, or 6.61 billion euros, a year ago. Through the first six months, sales slid 7.8 percent to $13.74 billion, or 12.27 billion euros, from $14.9 billion, or 13.31 billion euros, last year. Dollar figures have been converted from the euro at current exchange.
