Kohl’s ready to open

DANVILLE — Walk into the new Kohl’s store and it’s like getting a new car and experiencing that new car smell.

The new carpet, paint and new store all contribute to the scent, and the brightly-colored displays of cosmetics, clothes, kitchenware all look good.

The store is undergoing some last-minute touches, but store manager Andrew Immormino said the staff will be ready for the store opening at 9 a.m. Sunday. The store will be open its first day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Residents will have three days to shop before the store’s official grand opening on Wednesday.

There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Scott Eisenhauer, aldermen and other local officials at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, followed by the store officially opening its doors at 8 a.m. at 3707 N .Vermilion St. The store will be open Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday will see even longer hours of 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

There will be store-wide sales for the grand opening.

Immormino was formerly assistant store manager of a Kohl’s store in Aurora. He’s excited to manage this store and be a part of bringing Kohl’s to Danville.

The Danville store was built according to a prototype that received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification at the Gold level from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The store has water-efficient landscaping and plumbing fixtures, an energy-efficient roof and other “green” features, Immormino said.

He added that the store is “all about the customer.” The customer service desk is on the left of the front entrance.

The store has many new features such as enhanced fixtures and more depth for products in its cosmetics area, a new watch display that the Danville Kohl’s is the only Illinois store to have, more streamlined cases in the jewelry area, electronic sales price signs on racks and Kohl’s Kiosks for online shopping for sizes and styles not found in store.
