(Reuters) – Kohl’s Corp (KSS.N) said on Monday it would extend the duration of store closure, and fully draw down on its $1 billion revolving credit facility to control damages from the coronavirus pandemic.
The department store operator also said it would cut spending by about $500 million, and that Chief Executive Officer Michelle Gass would not take a salary as it manages through the crisis.
