Same-store sales at Nordstrom declined 6.1 percent in July which was consistent with its outlook, the company said.


Nordstrom's anniversary sale on fall goods led to a "small improvement over recent trends," the company said in its recorded sales message.


Full-priced Nordstrom stores are suffering the most, with same-store sales down 9.1 percent in July. At Nordstrom Rack, same-store sales rose 6.4 percent.


Strongest categories: Designer goods, cosmetics and accessories.


Strongest regions: Northwest, Southern states, Midwest
