Kohl’s to Open New Ecommerce Distribution Center in Texas

Kohl’s Department Stores has entered into a purchase agreement to build a new 951,000-sq.-ft. ecommerce distribution center in DeSoto, TX. The facility is scheduled to open this summer.

Kohl’s will close on the agreement once the building process is complete. The site was selected for its proximity to better serve Kohls.com’s Central and Midwest customer base.

The new facility will serve as a fulfillment site for Kohls.com purchases. Kohl’s saw its ecommerce sales rise 50% in 2010, and expects sales on Kohls.com to reach $1 billion this fiscal year.

After the DeSoto distribution center opens, Kohl’s will operate a total of 13 distribution centers across the country. This marks the company’s fourth distribution center dedicated to serving Kohls.com customers — other centers are located in San Bernardino, CA; Monroe, OH; and Edgewood, MD.

External hiring will begin March 1, offering hourly and management positions. Kohl’s expects to hire more than 200 full-time associates when the facility opens. At full capacity, Kohl’s expects to employ about 400 full- and part-time associates at the DeSoto distribution center.
