Caleres: net sales increase by 60.8%
Net sales registered by Caleres in the 13 weeks period ended on the 1st of May of 2021 totalled 638.6 million US dollars, up by 60.8% from the first quarter of fiscal 2020
“Caleres had a strong start to the year, maintaining its solid upward momentum in the first quarter of 2021, driven in large part by an outstanding performance in our Famous Footwear business, where we achieved record quarterly earnings and delivered record first quarter sales levels. Notably, Famous Footwear’s quarterly sales increased by 13% over the first quarter of 2019, benefitting from strong demand for the category, increased consumer confidence and improving in-store traffic trends. Famous continues to leverage its enhanced omni-channel capabilities and capitalize on its direct-to-consumer model, as evidenced by a 13.2% increase in new rewards members – compared to the first quarter 2019 – and still-strong ecommerce sales levels. We remain positive about our outlook and expect continued strength at Famous Footwear to be combined with an improving performance in our Brand Portfolio as we progress through the year”, stated Diane Sullivan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
