Neiman Marcus posts loss

  @ibtimes on

Upscale retailer Neiman Marcus posted a quarterly loss on Wednesday, as sales suffered through the holiday season at the hands of frugal U.S. consumers.

Adjusted for charges, such as a non-cash impairment costs and a pension curtailment gain, Neiman said its loss in the quarter was $32.6 million.

Neiman, which runs both its namesake and Bergdorf Goodman stores, faced a 21.4 percent drop in second quarter sales to $1.08 billion, while same-store sales fell 22.8 percent.

The company has also said that it will cut out or delay some projects to give itself additional liquidity.

Neiman, like other upscale retailers Saks Inc and Nordstrom Inc , has taken a deep hit as even shoppers who frequent higher-end stores cut back on spending in the recession.
