Kohl's to Help Amazon Grow Grocery Footprint
Progressive Grocer | September 4, 2020
Amazon is expanding its partnership with department store chain Kohl's in a big, new way. Kohl's will now allow an Amazon grocery store to occupy space at a Kohl's store in La Verne, California.
The approximately 37,000-square-foot grocery store will be separated by a wall connecting to the existing Kohl’s next door. There's no timetable yet for when the store would open.
Since 2017, Kohl's has been reducing selling space in some stores by teaming up with ALDI, Planet Fitness, and other companies. The moves are meant to increase traffic to Kohl's stores and to make the partners more efficient. Kohl's offers Amazon a fast and easy way to grow its grocery footprint.
