All comparative figures below and in the "Highlights" section and are for the 13-week period ended November 2, 2013 compared to the 13-week period ended October 27, 2012.

Retail sales were $984.1 million for the 13-week period ended November 2, 2013, an increase of $53.7 million, or 5.8%, from $930.4 million for the 13-week period ended October 27, 2012. Consolidated same store sales increased by 5.7% (3.8% on a constant currency basis), with an increase of 6.4% at Hudson's Bay and an increase of 1.6% on a U.S. dollar basis at Lord & Taylor.

Sales at Hudson's Bay were driven by strong performance of ladies' and men's apparel, ladies' shoes, handbags and accessories, as well as Topshop/Topman stores. Sales growth was particularly evident at those stores and store areas that have received recent renovations.

For example, at the Vancouver flagship store that received a major renovation in Fiscal 2012, sales were up over 30%. Sales at Lord & Taylor were driven by relative strength in men's apparel and shoes and improved performance in ladies' apparel and handbags. E-commerce sales grew to $48.9 million, an increase of 58.3% compared to the third quarter of Fiscal 2012, reflecting the Company's strategic focus on growing this channel.

Gross profit was $395.9 million, or 40.2% of retail sales, for the 13-week period ended November 2, 2013, compared to $362.7 million, or 39.0% of retail sales, for the 13-week period ended October 27, 2012. Gross profit in the quarter ended October 27, 2012 was impacted by a $9.3 million charge from higher than expected book-to-physical inventory adjustments. As a result, the Company implemented inventory control processes and corrective actions to ensure this would not be an ongoing issue.
