Kohl's Department Stores said Thursday that it will hire about 1,400 workers at its Edgewood distribution center as it temporarily staffs up for holiday shopping.
The company said it began hiring at distribution centers in August and will continue for a few months in preparation for holiday shoppers and other seasonal purchases. Its Harford County e-commerce fulfillment center, at 1701 Trimble Rd., is hiring temporary workers for full- and part-time jobs.
Kohl's expects that seasonal hiring in its stores will begin in October. It hires on average 40 extra people per store for the holiday season. It operates 1,158 stores in 49 states, including about eight in the Baltimore region.
The retailer's holiday hiring plans call for it to add 50,000 people nationwide.
