Wikipedia features a comprehensive and highly-attributed overview of the Kohl’s chain: Kohl's is an American department store retail chain, operated by Kohl's Corporation... The company was founded by Polish immigrant Maxwell Kohl, who opened a corner grocery store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1927. It went on to become a successful chain in the local area, and in 1962 the company branched out by opening its first department store.
Regarding location count, ScrapeHero.com features the most recently-updated number: There are 1,170 Kohls stores in the United States as of September 05, 2023. The state with the most number of Kohls locations in the US is California, with 117 stores, which is about 10% of all Kohls stores in the US.
Now comes word that a Longstanding Kohl's location, an anchor at Albuquerque's Coronado Center Mall, has permanently closed with little warning.
Let us explore.
According to a September 20th report from ABQJournal.com, the closure was widely unexpected.
As excerpted from the report: At least three customers walked up to Kohl’s at Coronado Center on Wednesday only to be greeted by signage showing the store had shut down. It was an abrupt end to one of the Uptown-area mall’s anchor tenants, which now joins a short list of large companies that have shuttered stores in the Albuquerque area this year.
The store reportedly shuttered one week ago today, with scant notice.
In the event of pertinent updates to these matters, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
