Stable quarter sales at Kohl's
The retailer registered strong results during the back-to-school shopping season. However, the middle of the latest quarter was soft however, due to abnormal weather condition
Kevin Mansell, Kohl's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented: "We are pleased to report an increase in comp sales for the quarter as the traffic momentum we saw in the first half of the year continued. We saw strong results during the back-to-school season, achieving a low single-digit positive comp. The middle of the quarter was soft as we experienced disruptions from the hurricanes and other unseasonal weather. The quarter closed with strong sales in the second half of October."

Net income dropped to 117 million US dollars, or 70 cents per share, in the third quarter, compared with 146 million US dollars, or 83 cents a share, in the third quarter in 2016.
