WISCONSIN — Kohl's announced on Thursday that most of its Wisconsin stores would reopen on Friday, May 22.

The company said that after two months of closing all stores nationwide, it would begin reopening stores on Friday. The company said it would be reopening 34 of its 41 Wisconsin stores. The seven stores who would not reopen on Friday would reopen on May 26, due to local ordinances.

Those seven stores include Madison East, Madison West, Madison South, Appleton North, Darboy, Racine and Janesville.

The store has also made changes to the store environment and staff operations.

These changes include:

  • Signage and floor decals have been placed throughout the store to encourage six feet of social distancing
  • For stores that have two or more entrances, one entrance has been closed and each store will operate with a single point of entry to the store.
  • A greeter will be stationed at the front of the store with the sole role of welcoming customers, sanitizing carts between each use and limiting occupancy, as appropriate.

Stores will also now only be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The drive-up service for customers looking to order online and pick up items at their local stores will continue to be offered.
