On the heels of a surprisingly weak jobs report, the retailers' reports will offer the latest insight on how the economy is faring as businesses rebound from the coronavirus pandemic.
Other retailers set to report include Ralph Lauren (RL.N), TJX Cos (TJX.N) and L Brands (LB.N), owner of Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works.
Higher inflation could crimp consumer demand and company profit margins or force the Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policy.
With over 90% of S&P 500 companies having reported, overall earnings are expected to have climbed 50.6% from a year ago, according to Refinitiv IBES.
The consumer discretionary sector (.SPLRCD), which includes many retailers, is seeing profits jump 191.3%, the biggest rise of any sector.
