The retail posted earnings of 70 cents a share on revenue of $4.37 billion, compared to last year's earnings per share of 81 cents on revenue of $4.44 billion.

Analysts expected Kohl's to post earnings of 74 cents a share on revenue of $4.4 billion, based on a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.

The department store warned investors in October that comparable sales would drop 1.4 percent in the third quarter but that e-commerce sales should continue to provide a bump to the retailer and rise more than 30 percent.

Like many retailers, Kohl's has seen a tough environment in brick-and-mortar store sales as consumers continue to be cautious spenders.
