Kohl’s Department Stores will celebrate the opening of its 1,000th store this fall, including a grand opening on Oct. 1 at the Salisbury location.
The first major tenant for Wallace Commons will open for business Sept. 28 before the grand opening celebration.
The Kohl’s at 1395 Klumac Road will create approximately 130 jobs in the area. It is one of three Kohl’s to open this fall in North Carolina, bringing the state total to 26.
Modernized checkout stations will offer customers more comfort and convenience. The store’s green attributes include recycled and locally obtained building materials; high-efficiency heating and cooling systems; occupancy sensor lighting for stockrooms, break rooms and offices; water-conserving plumbing fixtures and a recycling program for cardboard boxes, hangers and packaging.
The Salisbury store is one of 45 that received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design pre-certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
In celebration of its 1000th store and grand openings nationwide, Kohl’s will offer special prices throughout the store.
“We are excited to open the doors to the new Salisbury location. Like all Kohl’s stores, we will offer exclusive and national brands at a value customers can appreciate,” said Joe Bechtel, district manager for the new Kohl’s location. “We tell customers to expect great things from Kohl’s and we deliver this through our merchandise offerings, our customer service, and our commitment to the communities we serve.”
The company is based in Menomonee Falls, Wis. For more information, visit www.kohls.com.
