Neiman Marcus confirmed during its quarterly conference call that it is no longer for sale. The luxury department store chain had been in discussions with Hudson’s Bay, which operates Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Instead of selling, Dallas-based Neiman Marcus will focus on improving its operations, selling more exclusive merchandise, and offering a more personalized shopping experience both in stores and online. The chain, which operates 42 stores, is relying on technology to improve its customer interactions, according to CEO Karen Katz.
