Saks Sept Comp store sales up 3.2%

07
Oct '05
Department store retailer Saks Incorporated announced that for the five weeks ended October 1, 2005 compared to the five weeks ended October 2, 2004, total Company comparable store sales increased 3.2 percent and total sales decreased 10.0 percent. By segment, comparable store sales increased 4.3 percent for SDSG and increased 2.0 percent for SFAE for the month. Sales below are in millions and represent sales from owned departments only.

The Company completed the sale of its SDSG Proffitt's/McRae's business to Belk, Inc. effective Midnight on July 2, 2005. Therefore, Proffitt's/McRae's sales are included in prior year sales and in current year sales through June 2005 (fiscal month ended July 2, 2005).

Beginning in July 2005 (fiscal month beginning July 3, 2005), Proffitt's/McRae's sales are excluded from total company and comparable sales.

At SFAE, three days of a "Double Points" proprietary credit card event were shifted from September last year into October this year, negatively affecting September 2005 sales.

The Saks Fifth Avenue store in New Orleans suffered substantial damage related to Hurricane Katrina and is closed indefinitely. Consequently, this store has been removed from the comparable store sales calculation. Total sales for September 2005 were negatively affected by approximately $4.5 million due to the store closing.

Merchandise categories with the best sales performances for SDSG in September were furniture, cosmetics, accessories, intimate apparel, junior's apparel, and shoes. Categories with the softest sales performances for SDSG in September were women's moderate sportswear, women's petite sportswear, and home. Categories with the best sales performances for SFAE in September were women's and men's contemporary sportswear, men's accessories, handbags, and women's European designer collections.
