Kohl's has come a long way since it was opened as a corner grocery store in Milwaukee in 1927. The first department store opened in 1962, and it now is the largest department store chain in the nation, and, according to The Times' readers, the best department store in the Region.
Kohl's combines high-end designers and house labels to offer the best in fashion for the whole family as well as home decor, appliances and dinnerware, according to the company's Web site.
The store also offers incentives such as Kohl's Cash, which lets customers take advantage of online shopping, free pickup in stores and shopping in stores using cash they earned from previous purchases. Its "Yes2You Rewards" program enables customers to earn points that can be applied to future purchases.
Kohl's also is a good corporate citizen through its Kohl's Cares, sustainability efforts and other philanthropic initiatives.
This adds up to a Best in Region win for the suburban Milwaukee based retailer.
