"This is a great example of how Kohl’s and Amazon are leveraging each other's strengths," said Kohl's Chief Administrative Officer Richard Schepp, "the power of Kohl’s store portfolio and omnichannel capabilities combined with the power of Amazon’s reach and loyal customer base."
These are in addition to reports in late August that Whole Foods, which Amazon took over in August, will allow in-store pickup and returns of Amazon purchases. Between Kohl's, Whole Foods, and Amazon Lockers, there are a lot of ways to pick up and return items, making Amazon seem less and less like an online-only store.
This Kohl's announcement comes after Kohl's announced earlier this month that stores in Los Angeles and Chicago would get mini Amazon stores inside Kohl's locations. The stores-within-a-store will focus on Amazon's "devices, accessories and smart home devices."
