Kohl’s ready to open

(Continued)

DANVILLE —

There is a toy section at the far back of the store, which will grow at Christmastime, Immormino said.

There also is a seasonal area, which has patio furniture featured now; in addition to Hallmark cards; luggage; bedding and mattresses; and other house ware items in addition to men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoe sections.

There also is athletic wear, including University of Illinois and Chicago Cubs items. Immormino also pointed out the store carries more window coverings, and a wide range of dishes and cookware from the point of preparing food to putting it on the table.

Ashley Kincaid, area supervisor for apparel and accessories, said she’s excited for the public to start shopping at the “nice and pretty” store.

“It’s great for the community,” Kincaid said about Kohl’s opening.

The store is the 66th Kohl’s store open in Illinois. The Danville store is one of nine opening this spring. The new stores nationwide are hiring about 950 employees. The Danville store has about 105 employees.

For the Kohl’s project, the city put together a $2 million incentive package — $800,000 in federal and state economic development funding and a $1.2 million line of credit for the land purchase, site work and other costs.

The $800,000 reimburses Continental Properties, the developer for Kohl’s, for a portion of its costs in designing, acquiring, leasing and constructing the project.

The sales tax revenue generated from the project is to repay the loan within five years or less, city officials have said.

“Kohl’s is excited to open the doors to the new Danville location, offering great savings on quality, stylish brands while helping shoppers to stay within their budgets,” said Jeff Leitner, district manager for the new Kohl’s location, in a press release.

Shoppers can take advantage of Kohl’s Cash coupons, Night Owl and Early Bird specials, gift registry, Kohl’s Charge and Shoppers 60-plus.
