Kohl’s plans to mark the grand opening of new stores in Hixson and Dalton, Ga., on Sept. 28, employing 260 people, an official said today.
The Hixson store is on Highway 153 next to Academy Sports + Outdoors and is the Wisconsin-based retailer’s 20th unit in Tennessee. The Dalton site is at 835 Shugart Road and is Georgia’s 34th Kohl’s, the company said.
“At Kohl’s, when we say ‘expect great things,’ we mean it,” said Sam Beauregard, district manager for the new Kohl’s locations.
Also today, Kohl’s had a grand reopening of its Gunbarrel Road store in Chattanooga as it underwent a refurbishing.
Kohl’s is poised to become one of the region’s biggest retailers.
