Kohl’s will open a new e-commerce distribution center in Plainfield, IN, a move officials with the retailer said would enhance the company’s ability to fulfill orders for products purchased on Kohls.com.
The 937,000-square foot facility is expected to open in summer 2017 and the company plans on hiring as many as 900 employees over a three-year period.
With the new Plainfield facility, Kohl’s will operate 14 distribution centers across the country. This will be the company’s fifth distribution center dedicated to serving Kohls.com customers, with other e-commerce fulfillment centers located in San Bernardino, CA; Monroe, OH; Edgewood, MD and DeSoto, TX.
“Our investment in a new e-commerce fulfillment center is one of the many ways we are supporting omnichannel fulfillment,” said Sona Chawla, Kohl’s chief operating officer. “This is in addition to our capability to ship merchandise from our entire network of more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide and the option for customers to buy online and pick up their purchase at their local Kohl’s store, two initiatives that came to life last year.”
