Shares in Kohl´s slumped 9% in pre-market trading after the US department store operator missed earnings expectations.
Rising costs and store closures due to hurricanes saw the struggling group report a 20% third-quarter decline in profit to $117m.
Kohl´s meanwhile reported sluggish revenue, with sales at stores open at least 12 months rising by just 0.1%.
This latter gauge, however, beat analysts´ expectations for a 0.7% decline.
Net sales rose marginally to $4.33bn versus market forecasts of $4.30bn.
