On a per-share basis, the Cincinnati-based company said it had profit of 64 cents.

The department store operator posted revenue of $6.1 billion in the period, which also fell short of Street forecasts. Five analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $6.24 billion.

Macy's expects full-year earnings to be $4.70 to $4.80 per share.
