Digital sales bright spot in Kohl's rough quarter

Kohl's online sales grew 30 percent in the latest quarter. Web sales were the bright spot in an otherwise weak quarter, forcing the department store to lower its guidance for the year by 10 to 15 percent. Comparable store sales grew just 0.4 percent and total sales increased 0.8 percent during Q4. But buy-online pick-up in store was starting to resonate with consumers as the company reported a "dramatic improvement" in mobile orders over the quarter. Story
