Kohl's Department Stores has closed on the purchase of a building for a new e-commerce distribution center located at 1701 Trimble Road in Edgewood, Md. Expected to open in July 2011, the 602,000-square-foot building will fulfill Kohls.com purchases, and Kohl's will expand the facility to 1 million-square-feet by 2012. As part of the company's continued growth which also includes 40 new stores and 100 remodels in 2011, the site was selected for its business-friendly community, strong economy, availability of a robust workforce and proximity to Kohls.com eastern customer base.

"We are committed to delivering on our promise to 'expect great things'. This new facility will ensure that Kohl's is able to accommodate the tremendous growth of our Kohls.com business," said Ken Bonning, Kohl's executive vice president of store planning and logistics. "We currently operate 20 stores in Maryland, and are pleased to expand our presence with this new facility and create approximately 1,200 jobs for the community over the next three years."

"We are very happy to welcome Kohl's and its new distribution center to our area," said David Craig, County Executive for Harford County Government. "Harford County is working diligently to bring more quality jobs to the area and we know that Kohl's will benefit from the talented workforce in our community."

The new facility will serve as a fulfillment site of Kohls.com purchases. Kohl's has experienced more than 50 percent e-commerce revenue increase in 2010, and expects to achieve $1 billion in e-commerce sales in 2011. Upon the opening of the new Edgewood, Md. facility, Kohl's will operate a total of 12 distribution centers across the country. This is the company's third distribution center dedicated to serving Kohls.com customers; other centers are located in San Bernardino, Calif. and Monroe, Ohio.

External hiring will begin in March, offering hourly and management positions. Kohl's expects to hire more than 200 full and part time associates when the facility opens in July. Once operating at full capacity, Kohl's expects to employ approximately 1,200 associates at this location. Applicants interested in career opportunities are encouraged to visit kohlscareers.com for more information and a list of available positions.
