The official word from Kohl’s at East Bend is Rome is as follows: “There’s nothing to share just yet but I will keep you posted.”
Our visual tour on Friday, shows otherwise. A week earlier, basic grading was continuing on the hole between Five Below and what eventually will be Old Navy. Some parking spots in front of the store were filled with rows of steel. Since then, walls are under way the Old Navy portion of the store and the work to the backside seems to be moving even faster.
Kohls is expected to open by October, plenty of time before the Christmas rush.
A building permit worth $2.6 million for the store was issued several months ago and construction bids have ranged from $3 million to $5 million.
