Plan. Precision. Results.

Buying teams at Kohl’s have turned what was once a stand-alone family-owned store into an omni-channel corporation with more than $18 billion in annual sales and 1,150 stores across the nation. The team runs like clockwork. Focusing on regional shopping patterns and customer preferences, it decides how much inventory each store needs. This ensures our ability to stay fully stocked — a key competitive advantage of Kohl’s.

Associates on the team alternate between roles in Buying and Planning & Allocation. This structure helps to drive the business with improved and expanded product offerings. The opportunity for growth and advancement, coupled with an unparalleled corporate culture, gives this team an edge in the retail market.

Invite. Motivate. Sell.

Merchandise Presentation is responsible for the interior of every store across the country — from how products are displayed to fixtures and graphics. It’s this team’s job to make sure our stores are attractive and inviting. These components include all the “extras” that add so much visual impact: mannequins, decorative forms, artwork and brand-name lettering. This team also serves as the liaison between the entire organization including our stores, Buying department, Store Environment and Design, and Product Development.
