In addition to our inventory management efforts, we're continuing to evolve our operating model to support our growth strategy. On April 18, we announced expense reduction efforts, predominantly here in our Seattle headquarters, of $60 million. This includes elimination of approximately 400 roles, which is about 7% of our corporate positions. This will improve our focus and execution, and make us more nimble to respond to the business environment. Later, Mike will share more on our expense reduction efforts. As we look at the balance of the year, we are actively implementing a number of initiatives to drive top line growth and improve the customer experience. On May 18, we're rolling out an expanded Nordstrom rewards loyalty program that will allow all of our customers to earn rewards, with or without a Nordstrom card. Our rewards customers are many of our most loyal and best customers, spending four times more annually. Today, only about one out of five customers are part of our program, yet their spend contributes roughly 40% of our sales.

Even today, the fashion of that decade regularly influences designer collections but it wasn't the victim to just one trend. Platforms! The 'angel dress' also made its appearance during this time.
