Macy’s net sales fell 35.8% to $ 3.56 billion from $ 5.55 billion a year ago, but that beat expectations of $ 3.48 billion.

Online sales and Macy’s stores that have been open for at least 12 months under the terms of ownership plus licenses were down 35.1%. According to Refinitiv estimates, analysts were expecting a 28.2% decline.

Macy’s said digital sales accounted for 54% of its total comparable sales, with stores closed for the quarter.

The company said it ended the second quarter with a strong liquidity position. He had about $ 1.4 billion in cash on his balance sheet.
