Kohl’s is officially opening a location in North Kalispell.

The retail giant, in a press release issued Monday, announced that it is looking to hire about 60 employees for the store.

The national department store offers a range of items including clothing and home goods.

The Kalispell store is under construction on U.S. 93 North in the Spring Prairie Commons shopping center, which already includes Old Navy, Hobby Lobby and REI stores.

A company spokesperson declined to offer a timeline for the opening or provide further information about the store but said that more details would be announced soon. Inklings of the national chain’s arrival in Kalispell emerged in the spring of last year when the store appeared on an agenda for the city's site development review committee.

The store aims to hire employees to fill nine full-time and 50 part-time positions. The positions include sales and operations roles, and lead and supervisor positions, according to the company press release.

Kohl’s had previously signaled plans to construct a store in Kalispell, but that was scrapped in 2009.

The first Kohl’s department store opened in Brookfield, Wisconsin in 1962. The chain now includes more than 1,000 stores in 49 states, according to the company’s website.

Kohl’s has three Montana locations with stores in Billings, Bozeman and Missoula.
