Blair’s e-commerce sales rose 27% year-over-year for the first quarter ended March 31, to $24 million, while total net sales declined 6%, the company reported today.

Direct marketer Blair Corp.’s sales at its two retail apparel and home products web sites, CrossingPointe.com and Blair.com, rose 27% year-over-year in the first quarter, to $24 million from $18.9 million, the company said today. Blair’s Q1 e-commerce sales accounted for 18.7% of total net sales, up from 13.8% in the year-ago quarter.
