"My sixteen years with Kohl's has been both exciting and rewarding," Ms. Meier said. "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the associates that I have worked with through the years. Their dedication to Kohl's is the foundation of the company's success. To have been a part of Kohl's growth from 66 Midwest stores to 741 stores nationwide has been an incredible journey. I retire from Kohl's with pride and the knowledge that the management team we have assembled is the best in the industry to lead the tremendous growth ahead and continue our outstanding performance."

Larry Montgomery, Kohl's chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "Arlene has played a significant role in Kohl's disciplined expansion strategy and strong financial position. From her involvement in our IPO in 1992 to our most recent announcement of our first share repurchase program, Arlene has been instrumental in the development of our capital structure. We are well positioned to continue our successful growth and we thank Arlene for her tremendous contributions to our success."

In preparation for Arlene's planned retirement, the company has been searching for a new principal. Ms. Meier will continue in her current management capacity until the principal is selected and joins the company, and she will remain on the board of directors until the end of the 2006 fiscal year.

Ms. Meier has served as chief operating officer since November 2000.
