The corporations announced the news Tuesday, revealing the option would be available in July at all its stores across the country, including in Georgia. There are dozens of locations throughout the state.

The companies noted Kohl’s will be accepting “eligible” Amazon items, without a box or label, at no additional cost. Kohl’s will then ship the packages back to Amazon. 

“Amazon and Kohl’s have a shared passion in providing outstanding customer service, and this unique partnership combines Kohl’s strong nationwide store footprint and omnichannel capabilities with Amazon’s reach and customer loyalty,” Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass said in a statement

The goal is to “drive traffic” to stores and “bring more relevance” to shoppers, she added. 

This isn’t the first time the two businesses have collaborated. In 2017, Kohl’s began carrying Amazon gadgets at about 80 locations. That number will soon grow to 200, according to the press release.
