I love Kohl's stores. Really, I do. Their Black Friday specials are some of the best available, and they have the Gold Star Deals: a program wherein they heavily discount certain merchandise to make room for new inventory. When I can get a $40 shirt for $6, you know I will come back time and again.
On our most recent outing, yesterday evening, Kohl's was having one of their Midnight sales, which really cut off at 11pm, but that is the best comparison. In this sale, items were given extra discounts during those hours, then would go back to normal sale prices at the expiration.
What caught my eye was the Home Editions Quilt Set (a quilt with matching quilted pillow shams), all size sets, $29.99. I have been needing another blanket for our bed, and this was an offer I could not refuse.
Upon entry into this store, located in the plaza across from Lowe's and near the local Border's store, you are impressed with the size and cleanliness of the store. Sales are very well displayed with large placards and brightly colored signs.
The store is sectioned off like you would expect for a more upscale department store. Kohl's strikes me as a more hoity-toity version of Target, but not as costly as Dillard's. Sure, you can find some expensive items there, however, Kohl's also offers serious discounts, and is also easier to navigate without staff accosting you in the hopes of gaining a commission.
The downside to this? Most Kohl's staff in this store are nonexistent until you need to pay. Even then, they are grumpy and do not really want to be there. If you are in housewares and can't find something, you will have to walk all the way to the front of the store, ask a cashier to page someone, wait for that person to get there, and then explain what you need and hope they have it in stock. If they are in a good mood, they will help you find it. If they are not, you will be told they don't have it in stock. I'm thinking this is regardless of whether they actually do or not.
This store is clean, and very well organized. Sale items are easily found, and a wide variety of labels are there, including Adidas, Daisy Fuentes, Home Editions, Sonoma, and others. The shoe department carries major brands, also, in a wide variety of styles and sizes.
The home department has a lot, too, including all sorts of vacuums, carpet cleaners, Kitchenaid attachments, Kitchenaid mixers, paintings, candles, and more. Without their sale prices, they can be expensive, but when they have their specials running, Kohl's just can't be beat.
In short, Kohl's is great for their sales and selection. I probably will never pay full price for anything there, because the prices are costly. My advice? Watch their ads and shop wisely. You could get an $80 quilt set for $30 too, if you are patient.
