NEW YORK — Apparel felt the sting of lower same-store sales as Kohl’s Corp. weathered “disappointing” first-quarter earnings growth during what chief executive officer Lawrence Montgomery bemoaned the “toughest quarter in the company’s history.”
Women’s, men’s and children’s apparel each experienced a 3 percent decline in comparable-store sales during the quarter, although accessories led merchandise categories with a comp advance of an equal amount, Kevin Mansell, president, said on a conference call with analysts.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
