Revenue declined by 6.5% year-over-year to $3.32 billion, falling short of expectations by about $100 million. EPS of $0.25, on the other hand, exceeded estimates by $0.13.

During the quarter, gross merchandise value (GMV) decreased by 7.1% and Nordstrom banner net sales plummeted by 9.4%. Additionally, net sales at Nordstrom Rack ticked lower by 1.8%.
