Amazon is expanding its partnership with department store chain Kohl’s in a big, new way.
The Milwaukee Business Journal is reporting that Kohl’s will allow an Amazon grocery store, likely its new banner called Fresh, to occupy space in a Kohl’s store in La Verne, California. According to city records, Kohl’s would occupy about 50,900 square feet of the 88,000-square-foot box, with the Amazon grocery store filling the remainder.
The proposed store at 2229 Foothill Boulevard would share building space with an existing Kohl’s. It’s one of a handful of Amazon grocery stores under development in the region, including locations in Irvine, Woodland Hills and North Hollywood. The approximately 37,000-square-foot grocery store will be separated by a wall connecting to the existing Kohl’s next door, Assistant City Planner Maia McCurley told the (La Verne, California) Daily Bulletin. There’s no timetable yet for when the store would open, McCurley said.Progressive Grocer
