Kohl’s Department Stores is pleased to announce the grand opening of 12 new stores, creating approximately 1,500 jobs nationwide. The company now operates 1,146 stores in 49 states.

“We are pleased to be in a position to open 12 new stores, create approximately 1,500 jobs and invest in our existing store base by remodeling dozens of locations,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl's chairman, president and chief executive officer. “While shoppers continue to be selective about their purchases, value is an important part of why customers choose Kohl’s. So, we continue to offer quality national and exclusive brand merchandise in a fresh and exciting shopping environment, at an exceptional value.”

Growth, Remodels and Innovation

The company celebrates the grand opening of 12 new stores in 10 states, including Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington. Of the 12 new locations, 11 are small format stores with approximately 64,000 square feet or less of retail space. Kohl’s also continues to invest in its existing store base by remodeling approximately 50 stores this year. Over the last six years, more than half of Kohl’s store base has been remodeled or newly built.

All new Kohl’s stores opening this fall feature convenient store designs and new features to provide customers with an exciting and comfortable shopping environment. Some of these features include:

Updated check-out stations

  • Newly designed shopping carts and strollers
  • Innovative fixtures in cosmetics
  • Upgraded fitting rooms throughout the store with fitting room lounges in Misses and Juniors
  • Expanded customer service area relocated to the front of the store in all locations
  • In-store Kohl’s Kiosks
  • Electronic signs in all departments
  • Wi-Fi throughout the store

In addition, nine of the new stores opening this week were built according to a prototype that received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification at the Gold level from the U.S. Green Building Council. 

Characteristics of stores built to LEED guidelines, which provide best practices for the design, construction and operation for high-performance green buildings, include: recycled and regionally sourced building materials; water-efficient landscaping and plumbing fixtures and the use of ENERGY STAR-rated roofs that reduce each building’s energy demand.

Green characteristics of all stores opening this week include waste management to recycle construction materials, occupancy sensor lighting for stockrooms, dressing rooms, break rooms and offices, energy management systems to control heating and cooling and a recycling program for cardboard boxes, hangers and packaging.

Based in Menomonee Falls Wis., Kohl’s is a family-focused, value-oriented specialty department store offering moderately priced, exclusive and national brand apparel, shoes, accessories, beauty and home products in an exciting shopping environment. With a commitment to environmental leadership, Kohl’s operates 1,146 stores in 49 states.
