What's your prediction as it relates to the possiblity of Kohls layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
With the sale off the table, I can now breathe a sigh of relief. There was no way in which we could have gotten out of that without huge layoffs. That's just the way things work in these situations. Selling off some of the real estate seems like a... — read more

Any idea how the offer the activist hedge fund Starboard Value made would affect us? I heard that whenever activist investors get involved, cost cuts follow. In this case, that would most likely mean more store closings and more layoffs. Am I right... — read more

The arrival of Sephora at Kohl’s, what do you think about it? What good can this bring to this company? I was honestly really surprised when I found out about it, at first I thought it was just a rumor that will never be realized.
