Macy's Inc. reported significantly increased sales and earnings for the first quarter of 2012, the 13-week period ended April 28, 2012. Earnings for the quarter were 43 cents per diluted share, an increase of 43 percent compared with 30 cents per diluted share in the same period last year.

"The momentum in our business at Macy's and Bloomingdale's continued to build in the first quarter, with sales and earnings that exceeded our expectations going into the year.

“The quarterly data clearly demonstrates the strength of our results as we continue to implement our key strategies - My Macy's merchandise localization; omnichannel integration of stores, online and mobile; and MAGIC Selling for enhanced customer engagement," said Terry J. Lundgren, Macy's, Inc. chairman, president and chief executive officer.

"We are as excited about the future as we have been about the significant progress we have made over the past several years to build a culture of growth at Macy's, Inc.," Lundgren said.

"In particular, we feel very good about the business opportunities in front of us for the remainder of fiscal 2012. This spring, Macy's significant national promotion featuring the fashions, colors and rhythms of Brazil is an example of a new dimension in merchandising and marketing innovation to capture the imaginations of our diverse customers.

“We have numerous initiatives in place to generate continuous improvement at Macy's and Bloomingdale's in the coming quarters and years, including new thinking we recently announced for attracting customers in the Millennial generation."
