Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, “Our sales performance in the third quarter was consistent with our expectations, while our gross margin results were better than expected.

“Thanks to our dedicated teams, expenses were again well-managed. We have made noticeable investments in Holiday inventory - both in depth and content - and the in-store experience. Our stores are festive and fun to shop. We are also very excited about our expanded gift strategy and our ability to offer great products at great values."

On November 7, 2012, Kohl's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on the Company's common stock of $0.32 per share. The dividend is payable December 26, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 5, 2012.
