Nordstrom 1Q17 Earnings Call Notes

Peter E. Nordstrom – Nordstrom, Inc.

There’s an ongoing casualization trend

And this is Pete. I’ll take the part about the fashion cycle. I think the themes that are generally true across all classifications is that there’s a continuing trend around casualization that we need to be mindful of really kind of across the board. And that we’ve had good success I think, where we’ve focused on that appropriately. Newness is always a theme that we talk about and for us to have our inventories in line and be able to bring new goods in always helps stimulate the business. Also, athletic and fitness type brands, and that’s kind of part of that casualization lifestyle part that we talked about a bit over the years, that’s a strong trend.
