This week, Kohl’s announced the list of the 400 stores that will be adding Sephora at Kohl’s shops this year.
The chain’s sole Richland County store is one of those included.
From Alaska to Maine, the 400 stores will span 36 states, eight of which are brand new homes to Sephora at Kohl’s. The addition of 400 stores brings the Sephora at Kohl’s location total to 600 and puts the partnership on track to meet its 850 store goal by 2023.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Sephora at Kohl’s closer to millions more of our customers nationwide through this 400 store expansion,” said Doug Howe, Kohl’s chief merchandising officer. “The quick and vast rollout of Sephora at Kohl’s is a testament to how much we believe in this partnership and making prestige beauty more accessible to people everywhere. We’re excited to grow and bring this elevated beauty experience to more of Kohl’s existing and new customers this year.”
Introduced in fall 2021, Sephora at Kohl’s features a 2,500 square foot, fully immersive beauty experience that mimics the look and feel of a freestanding Sephora. Within all Sephora at Kohl’s locations, customers can explore the signature Sephora experience with a carefully curated assortment of prestige makeup, skincare, hair, and fragrance brands, as well as innovations in clean beauty and self-care. Sephora-trained Beauty Advisors offer personalized beauty consultations and assistance with finding products, while testing and discovery zones serve up a rotating assortment of new, emerging or trending products.
As a partnership designed to drive joint success, overhaul Kohl’s beauty business, excite existing customers and bring new customers into Kohl’s, early indications show that Sephora at Kohl’s is succeeding on these fronts. As previously disclosed, Sephora at Kohl’s is off to a great start and has been driving sales, bringing in new, younger and more diverse customers, and enabling cross-category purchases across all lines of business.
The introduction of Sephora at Kohl’s has also been the impetus to transforming and simplifying Kohl’s entire store experience. With Sephora at Kohl’s positioned prominently at the front of the store, it provided an opportunity to optimize the store space and expand categories that are most important, like active, casual and beauty. With the store transformation, Kohl’s is working to create a sense of discovery every time a customer walks in.
Locally, the Ontario store at 524 N Lexington Springmill Road is among the new Sephora at Kohl’s locations.
Other northern Ohio locations getting the new experiential Sephora include stores in Akron, Avon, Bainbridge, Highland Heights, Lorain, Macedonia, Medina, New Philadelphia, Niles, Parma, Sandusky, Stow, Wadsworth, Westgate, and Wooster.
It is unknown if this new location In Ontario will impact the Sephora items available at J.C. Penney in Richland Mall.
