Probably wouldn't of been worth your time to listen to the Kohl's Coference Call just for the Oshkosh news, the mention of Oshkosh was pretty brief and not very detailed. Sounds like the will start buying in late 2001 and actually have product availabe early 2002.

Right now Kohl's is only 320 stores but is expecting to open 55-60 stores this year and another 55-60 in 2002. It is kinda similar to Sears, without the tools, electronics, or sporting goods--closer to JC Penneys in product line, I would say, if that helps.

Probably not a great sudden impact for Oshkosh--if it were, they probably would of made some sort of announcement. But as Kohl's grows, probably adds something to Oshkosh's growth.

Maybe I'll fire off a question to IR.

Hope this helps.
