Kohls to open DeSoto distribution center and will hire 200 workers when it opens this summer

Kohl’s Department Stores said today it is buying property at Interstate 35 and Centre Park Boulevard in DeSoto where a 951,000-square-foot distribution center to support the firm’s e-commerce business in the central and Midwest U.S. is being built.

The facility when it opens this summer will immediately employ about 200 workers, but that will grow to about 400 full- and part-time workers during the next three years, the company said.

Hiring will begin March 1. Hourly and management positions will be available.

Kohl’s said it will close the real estate deal when the building is completed.

"This new facility will ensure that Kohl’s is able to accommodate the tremendous growth of our Kohls.com business," said Ken Boning, Kohl’s executive vice president of store planning and logistics.

Kohl’s has 84 stores in Texas. When the DeSoto facility opens it will have 13 distribution centers in the U.S., four of them for Kohls.com. The other centers serving Kohls.com are in San Bernardino, Calif.; Monroe, Ohio and Edgewood, Md.

The retailer said sales from Kohls.com has increased 50 percent since 2010 and that it expects sales to reach $1 billion this fiscal year.

Job applicants are being directed to Kohlscareers.com for more information and a list of available positions.
