Retail Dive

Lowe’s on Tuesday reported fourth-quarter net sales fell about 17% to $18.6 billion from $22.4 billion a year earlier. The home improvement retailer’s prior year Q4 sales included about $1.4 billion from a 53rd week on the calendar and $958 million from the sale of the company’s Canadian retail business during Q1 of last year.
