There was one local Kohl’s store unmobbed by stampeding bargain seekers yesterday. Instead, it was full of construction workers. Benderson Development was trying to get the new Kohl’s store at 2232 Delaware Avenue open before the holiday shopping season. But with final approvals this summer, the aggressive schedule was not feasible. The 88,000 sq.ft. store is expected to debut in April.
Wisconsin-based Kohl’s has 1004 stores in 48 states. The Delaware Avenue location will be the first in Buffalo and the fifth in the region. It is being built on the site of a former Ames store that was razed.
