Kohl's to Offer Amazon In-Store Experience

Kohl's to Offer Amazon In-Store Experience

At Kohl's locations, customers can also schedule an Amazon expert to come to their home and install these devices. The locations are slated to open in October.

"It is a smart move for both companies", analysts at Jeffries said.

Each space will be staffed with Amazon sales associates, according to Kohl's.

"We're focused on delivering convenience and value as we continue to invest in best-in-class interconnected experiences for our customers", said Home Depot Online President and Chief Marketing Officer Kevin Hofmann. Kohl's is scheduled to release earnings figures on November 10.

Shoppers will be able to buy Amazon gadgets - like Kindles and Fire tablets - accessories and smart home products, such as the Echo speaker at these locations.

"Teaming up with Kohl's provides an incredible opportunity to pair world-class customer and shopping experiences".

To use the service, U.S. Bank customers must have an Amazon account, an Alexa device, and the Alexa app on their smartphone.

QVC's Echo deal also bundles a 2-month Amazon Music Unlimited subscription and a 2-month Audible subscription. Faced with declining sales, Kohl's is reducing inventory in hundreds of its stores.

Shares of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin-based Kohl's Corp. soared 5 percent to close at $42.37 Wednesday. For Amazon, it gets its devices in front of more people to touch and try them.
