Department store chain Debenhams reported annual profits down by 44% at £59m.
Same-store sales in physical outlets were flat, but mobile sales are growing fast and were up by 57%.
Sales of beauty products, accessories and food and drink helped to offset what was a weak clothing market, Debenhams said.
Food sales in its cafes and restaurants were one of the better performers.
The company said in April that it would close 11 warehouses and put up to 10 stores under review.
The company is also slimming down its in-house brands.
