Kohl’s to close its discount stores

By Marianne Wilson - 06/11/2019

Kohl’s Corp. is shutting down its discount pilot.   

The department store retailer will close its Off/Aisle by Kohl’s locations on August 3, reported the Milwaukee Journal  Sentinel. Kohl’s debuted the off-price format, which was designed to sell deeply discounted merchandise that customers had returned to Kohl’s full-price stores,  in May 2015, in Cherry Hill, N.J.  The company went on to open three additional locations, all in the Milwaukee area.

"While we've learned a lot from the tests, we also learned that our strength and ongoing improvements in inventory management across the company do not allow us to appropriately stock Off/Aisle stores at scale," Jon Grosso, an executive VP at Kohl’s, wrote in a memo to store employees, according to the report.
