Tiffany's holiday sales fall, weak conditions remain

NEW YORK — Tiffany reported a worldwide decline in jewelry sales during the holiday period as consumer spending remained tepid in an uncertain global economy.

The company reported a 9 per cent drop in global same-store sales, or sales at stores open at least a year. Every region experienced a decline, except for Japan.

Looking ahead, Tiffany expects full-year profit for 2015 to decline by 10 per cent, closer to its worst-case outlook for the year. It expects minimal growth in 2016.

Shares of Tiffany dropped 2.5 per cent in premarket trading.
