Myer Chief Executive Officer, Bernie Brookes, said the business had delivered a solid result in a challenging retail environment with subdued consumer confidence, finishing the year with three months of positive comparable store sales growth.
 
“The highlight of this year’s result is the strong gross profit performance reflecting a number of key achievements. We delivered on the objectives of growing our Myer Exclusive Brands to 19 percent of sales, further reducing our shrinkage and markdowns, and improving our sourcing,” said Mr Brookes.
 
“The progress we made in implementing our five-point strategic plan clearly supported the profitability of the business and helped to offset ongoing cost headwinds. “I am encouraged by the further positive feedback from customers and team members as we focus on delivering an inspiring customer solution, with improved customer service and an enhanced merchandise range.
 
“With the support of our Asian sourcing offices, we have continued to develop our stable of 57 Myer Exclusive Brands with our established team of designers, product developers and planners. This represents a key strategic advantage.
