Kohl’s hires for retail jobs in Illinois
Posted on March 19, 2011
Retail giant Kohl’s has announced it is recruiting for retail jobs in Illinois and several other states.
The company is opening nine stores in seven states, including Illinois, New York, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
The move is expected to create more than 1200 jobs.
Next on the agenda – thirty more stores, according to a Kohl’s rep.
Kohl’s now has 1100 stores in 49 states.
According to the AP, Kohl’s Corp. said last month that its fourth-quarter net income increased 14 percent as shoppers bought more shoes and men’s clothing. But the chain also expects its customers will remain cautious in 2011.
In the second half of 2011 Kohl’s plans to launch two new exclusive brands: Jennifer Lopez women’s clothing and accessories and a Marc Anthony men’s line.
