(Reuters) – Department store operator Macy’s Inc (M.N) said its comparable-store sales during the months of November and December rose 1 percent, leading to a growth in overall comparable sales for the holiday quarter.
The company also said it would close 11 stores, cut jobs and further streamline non-store functions to save about $300 million in costs in 2018.
The company’s shares were down 2.5 percent in premarket trading on Thursday.
