Tuesday, 13 Nov 2012 08:26 AM

Saks Inc. said on Tuesday it expects sales at stores open at least a year to be flat during the current holiday quarter because of a slow start to November due to Superstorm Sandy.

Saks said Sandy affected stores that account for more than half of its sales.

The department store operator reported net income of $22.6 million, or 14 cents per share, for the fiscal third quarter ended Oct. 27, up from $17.8 million, or 11 cents per share, a year earlier.
