The Gig Harbor Kohl’s, at 4929 Point Fosdick Drive NW, will have its grand opening on Sept. 26.

The Wisconsin-based midpriced clothing store announced the date this morning in a news release.

Kohl’s new 55,000-square-foot store is the another major retailer to open in Gig Harbor’s redeveloped Point Fosdick Square. A new Safeway store opened in the shopping center earlier this year.

Point Fosdick Square is owned by Property Development Centers, a subsidiary of Safeway Inc. The 11-building reconstructed shopping center adjacent to the Uptown Gig Harbor lifestyle center contains some 182,000 square feet of floor space.

Kohl’s is opening 12 new stores this fall, creating approximately 1,500 jobs nationwide. The Gig Harbor store announced this summer it was hiring 125 workers.

The Gig Harbor store is the 18th store to open in Washington. Kohl’s operates 1,134 stores in 49 states.
