Report: Department stores did well online in Q4

  • Fresh data from IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark could give some hope that the holiday season wasn't quite as bad for department stores as reads on store traffic would suggest.
  • Online sales for the group rose 62.8% Y/Y in Q4 and mobile sales gained 38%, according to the research firm.
  • The contribution of online/mobile to total sales varies widely in the group.
  • Department store chains: Macy's (M), Nordstrom (JWN), Kohl's (KSS), Dillard's (DDS), J.C. Penney (JCP), Sears Holdings (SHLD), The Bon-Ton Stores (BONT), Stage Stores (SSI), Ross Stores (ROST).
