NORDSTROM RAMPS UP GROWTH.

Footwear News May 28, 2007 | Ramey, Joanna Byline: Joanna Ramey SEATTLE – Nordstrom is looking to strike while the iron is hot.

“We are in a very strong niche right now,” said President Blake Nordstrom in brief comments following the retailer’s annual meeting, held last week in the conference room of its downtown flagship here.

As such, the 98-door chain plans to add at least 26 stores in the next five years, and executives said further store openings are possible. Existing stores are also being aggressively remodeled, with $100 million targeted to revamp seven stores annually, Nordstrom said.

Nordstrom also said he expects business on the store’s Website to double to $1 billion in the next few years. To that end, the company is doubling the size of its online and catalogue distribution center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to 600,000 square feet this year. in our site nordstrom coupon code

While retail basics such as tight inventory management and improved technology are boosting the bottom line, Nordstrom told some 200 shareholders that meeting customers’ demands for more and more diverse fashions are key to making the business flourish. Nordstrom’s brother and Nordstrom chief merchant Pete Nordstrom concurred. “It’s fashion and design at all ends [of the business],” he emphasized after the meeting.

Jack Minuk, GMM for shoes, said demand continues to climb for designer and luxury labels. Such is the case with London-based Burberry, which in the last year has increased its business with Nordstrom – already its largest U.S. retail customer.

“We’ve put a real spotlight on shoes,” said Angela Ahrendts, Burberry’s CEO, who attended the annual meeting with U.S. Burberry president Eugenia Ulasewicz. “We quadrupled our assortment and now we have a full-store hierarchy [of women’s, men’s and children’s shoes].” Ahrendts launched the Nordstrom strategy last year after taking the helm of the international luxury fashion goods purveyor. Since then, Burberry business at Nordstrom has increased 57 percent, said Pete Nordstrom. As a thank you, Burberry was awarded Nordstrom’s Partner in Excellence award at the annual meeting. Free People, an Urban Outfitters division, also received a Partner in Excellence award.

Blake Nordstrom cited various financial milestones reached last year in the areas of sales, gross profit, stock price and earnings before taxes. Total sales for 2006 were up 10.8 percent, for an annual record of $8.56 billion. And same-store sales increased 7.5 percent for the fifth consecutive annual increase. He also noted Nordstrom’s placement on Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s rankings of retailers by credit ratings. “Only Wal-Mart and Target are ahead of us,” he told shareholders. see here nordstrom coupon code

For the fiscal year ending Feb. 2, Nordstrom is forecasting earnings in the range of $2.81 to $2.90 per diluted share. A company spokesman said same-store sales are expected to increase 3 percent to 4 percent. Not affecting sales, Blake Nordstrom said, is the spike in gasoline prices or other increases in the cost of living.

Earlier this month, the retailer reported first-quarter earnings of $156.8 million, or 60 cents per diluted share, compared to $131.2 million, or 48 cents per share, in the year-ago period.
