Dividend-paying stocks are considered important for investors because of uncertainty in stock prices in the future and concerns about rising interest rates that could affect the market.

Retail store performance has been fluctuating in recent years, but there are certain retailers that offer security with their payouts.

Some companies haven’t increased their dividends over the years and others have actually seen decreases. Dividends are the share of revenues paid to investors. While the high dividends of some stocks are appealing, there are also resilient companies with lower yields that promise a robust future.

Here are seven of the best dividend-paying stocks in retail:

  • Kohl’s (KSS) — The department store has a substantial 5-percent dividend yield. It is surviving the slump seen in shopping malls and has more than 1,100 stores nationwide, according to Sure Dividend.
  • The Gap (GPS) — The clothing chain operates about 3,300 stores as well as e-commerce sites. With more than 10 years of dividend increases, the stock has a 3.9-percent yield.
  • Wal-Mart (WMT) — The discount giant has managed to raise dividends for some 43 years. Investors can receive a 2.9-percent yield as the company plans to open 35 new super centers along with more grocery and market stores. 
  • L Brands (LB) — The clothing retailer owns such outlets as Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret, Fortune notes. Its payout has been increasing by 25 percent for the past five years and has a yield of 3.4 percent.
  • Costco (COST) — The warehouse chain has low prices on name-brand products with steady growth. Although the yield is 1.2 percent, the dividend has seen a 24-percent annual growth during the past 10 years. It is a Warren Buffett favorite, according to Simply Safe Dividends.
  • Barnes & Noble (BKS) — It is among the top specialty retailers listed by Dividend.com. The major bookstore chain continues to maintain vigor through its stores and online products. It has a strong dividend yield of 6.70 percent.
  • Staples (SPLS) — Office products and services continue to play a huge role in the tech market. The office supply franchise has an impressive dividend yield of 5.34 percent.
