SoCal's unemployed could be getting a break as Kohl's just announced a dozen new stores in the area.
Kohl's Department Stores are looking for sales clerks, stockers, executives and other positions. Planned locations include Cypress, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Northridge, Redondo Beach and more.
The expansion will bring about 1,800 new jobs to the Southland and increase the number of Kohl's stores in the state to 121.
Kohl's took over 30 stores left empty when rival company Mervyn's filed for bankruptcy last year. Former Mervyn's employees are being encouraged apply for the Kohl's jobs.
