Oct '10
Kohl's Department Stores announces the grand opening of 21 new stores across the nation and celebrates the opening of the new customer service and operations center in San Antonio, Texas that will serve Kohl's Charge and Kohls.com customers nationwide. The new stores will bring nearly 3,000 jobs to communities across 15 states, and the new customer service and operations center in San Antonio, which recently hired approximately 200 associates, expects to create more than 1,000 jobs over the next three years.

"We're pleased to be in a position to create more than 4,000 jobs as Kohl's continues to build market share in a challenging economy," said Kevin Mansell, Kohl's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We continue to bring customers new stores where they can enjoy Kohl's great brands and tremendous values. Additionally, we have invested in our existing store base by remodeling 85 stores, 66 percent more stores than last year, to keep the customer experience fresh and exciting."

Growth and Expansion
This year marks another year of growth for Kohl's as the company opens 21 stores today in 15 states - Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania - and opened a total of 30 new stores in 2010. The company now operates 1,089 stores in 49 states. Kohl's also invested in its current store base and remodeled 85 stores this year, a 66 percent increase from 2009.

In addition to investing in new and existing stores, the new San Antonio customer service and operations center supports the growth of Kohl's Charge business. The center also supports the growth of the company's Kohls.com sales, which experienced 48 and 38 percent revenue increases in 2008 and 2009, respectively and continues to experience significant growth this year.

The facility is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified at the Silver level, and in keeping with Kohl's ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, Kohl's will seek to maintain or expand the LEED designation for the finished building.

With this facility, Kohl's now operates three customer service and operations centers, including locations in Corsicana, Texas and Menomonee Falls, Wis.
