Target Q4 same-store sales drop more than expected

Feb 28 (Reuters) - Target Corp reported a steeper-than-expected decline in quarterly same-store sales on Tuesday, highlighting the retailer’s struggles in the holiday season.

Net income slumped to $817 million, or $1.45 per share in the fourth quarter ended Jan. 28, from $1.43 billion, or $2.32 per share, a year earlier.

Sales at stores open for at least a year fell 1.5 percent, missing the average analyst estimate of a decline of 1.3 percent, according to research firm Consensus Metrix.

Net sales fell 4.3 percent to $20.69 billion, Target’s sixth straight quarterly decline. (Reporting by Richa Naidu in Bengaluru; Editing by Savio D‘Souza)
