A fresh new storefront will open in November at Kitsap Mall in Silverdale.

Kohl’s is expected to open in mid-November in the former Mervyns location at Kitsap Mall, according to Annie Simaytis, Kohl’s spokeswoman.

Mervyns closed in December 2006 after being in business in Silverdale for 18 years. Mervyns was sold to Kohl’s for $14 million in March 2006, according to county documents.

“They’re a great retailer and they bring exceptional brands and products at a great price,” said Dan Engelhard, senior manager of Kitsap Mall. “We’re very excited about their addition to the shopping center.”

Engelhard said the Kohl’s company is renovating the 76,000-square-foot building to give it a “fresh new look on the exterior and interior” of the store. Kohl’s also expanded the shipping and receiving area of the store.

“They created a more efficient shipping and receiving area,” Engelhard said.

Kohl’s, based in Menomonee Falls, Wis., features a variety of merchandise including clothing, shoes and accessories for men women and children as well as kitchen accessories, bedding, luggage, jewelry and more.

Simaytis said Kohl’s is currently recruiting for various positions at the Silverdale store. For more information about working for Kohl’s, visit their Web site, www.kohlscareers.com or call the 24-hour job hotline at 1-877-NEW-KOHLS.

“We need to hire about 150 people for the store,” Simaytis said. Kohl’s opened its first store in 1962 in Brookfield, Wis. There are now more than 800 Kohl’s department stores across the United States including 10 locations in Washington.

“They’ll offer great products and services to our customers,” Engelhard said.

Simaytis said Kohl’s may host a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the future, but do not have any set plans.
