Update September 28: The brand new Kohl's, located at 2245 Ashley Crossing Drive in the Ashley Crossing Shopping Center is officially open for business today.

The West Ashley store is one of 30 U.S. locations the retail chain is unveiling today.

The Post and Courier has the brief; read it here.

Update August 1: Live 5 News reports that not only will a new Kohl's soon be opening up in the Ashley Crossing Shopping Center, but so will 130 jobs.

To find the right people to fill the positions, Kohl's is hosting a week-long job fair beginning Sunday, August 7th, at the Embassy Suites Convention Center at 5505 International Boulevard.

Make your way to Live 5 News for the schedule.

Update June 9: According to the monster sign in front of the former Walmart space in Ashley Crossing Shopping Center, Kohl's will be opening on September 25th.

However, Kohl's spokespeople are refraining from confirming that there's truth to the sign...which I find kind of strange. Perhaps the sign was erected sooner than intended?

For more details, check out The Post and Courier's report here.

First reporting: Kohl's department store is set to fill the the major retail space left vacant in 2007 when Walmart vacated Ashley Crossing shopping center.

Construction has already begun on Kohl's which is set to open in October of 2011. Mayor Riley is hinting that "an additional substantial tenant" may be soon to follow in Kohl's footsteps.
