Kohl's Careers & Info

Current CEO: Kevin Mansell

Status: Active

Max Kohl, founder of Kohl''s Department Store, began as the owner of a small grocery store. Before long, his grocery business became the largest supermarket chain in Milwaukee. Deciding to pursue other avenues, he opened a retail store in Brookfield, Wisconsin in 1962. This was the first Kohl''s Department Store, and it sold a variety of items from candy to clothing to tools. By 1972, Kohl''s Department Store had expanded to five stores.

In 1978, BATUS, Inc. bought 80 percent of the company, and took over Kohl''s Food and Department Stores. During the next decade, BATUS continued to expand the company, and it soon had branches in Illinois and Indiana. In 1983, BATUS sold the company to Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea (A&P).

In 1986, a group of investors bought Kohl''s Department Stores and formed Kohl''s Corporation. Since then, Kohl''s Corporation has added new distribution centers, increased store locations, upgraded brands, and given customers on-line shopping options. Using the values of hard work and customer service, Kohl''s continues to innovate and grow as a company.
