Same-store sales increased 2 percent over the same period, and also increased 2 percent over a 22-week period ending July 5.
L Brands officials said the company’s Victoria’s Secret same-store sales rose 3 percent, buoyed by strong performance of lingerie and Pink clothing lines.
The Victoria’s Secret Direct customer-service center on Bigger Road in south Kettering employs about 900, according to city of Kettering officials.
