(Filed Under Fashion News). Department store retailer Kohl’s Corporation plans to relocate its New York City design office from 1359 Broadway to 1400 Broadway in June 2010. Kohl’s did not immediately respond to questions regarding the square footage of the current and new offices; however, according to the company, the new location will measure more than twice the size of the current location, and is designed to support the growth of Kohl’s exclusive brands.
Headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wis., Kohl’s opened its New York design office in January 2007 in order to be in close proximity to the design source and management of exclusive partnerships. Today, the office houses seven licensed brands including Simply Vera Vera Wang; ELLE and Chap’s Home.
Kevin Mansell, chairman, president and CEO of the company, said; “We continue to differentiate Kohl’s through our exclusive partnerships and remain committed to bringing world-class brands to customers nationwide.
“Having a New York presence has been instrumental in growing our exclusive and private brand strategy, which accounts for 45 percent of sales through the third quarter of this year, up over two percent compared with last year. The new location allows us to manage our existing brands and support anticipated growth as we continue to focus on growing market share.”
