Company to create retail jobs in Rhode Island
Posted on November 9, 2017
Kohl’s is creating more retail jobs in Rhode Island.
Kohl’s plans to invest in its store base and enhance the capabilities of its e-commerce fulfillment network. During the third quarter, Kohl’s will open four small format stores and its fifth e-commerce fulfillment center.
The company continues to make progress on its initiatives to optimize and rightsize select Kohl’s stores across the country.
Kohl’s will open four small format, 35,000-square-foot stores, adding to the eight small format Kohl’s stores opened in 2016. The four new stores will be located in the following cities:
- North Smithfield, R.I.
- Blue Ash, Ohio
- East Windsor, N.J.
- Montebello, Calif.
In spring 2018, Kohl’s will open a new single-level 55,000 square-foot store in Greenfield, Wis. The store will relocate from the current two-level 85,000 square-foot store in nearby Southridge Mall. Earlier in 2017, Kohl’s relocated its 80,000 square-foot Charlotte, N.C., store to a nearby 55,000 square-foot location.
In 2017, Kohl’s further plans to rightsize the physical square footage of Kohl’s Warner Robbins, Ga., and Fort Smith, Ark., stores. Kohl’s Warner Robbins store will be reduced from an 89,000 square-foot store to a 62,000 square-foot store. Kohl’s Fort Smith store will be reduced from an 87,000 square-foot store to a 62,000 square-foot store.
