Omnichannel retailer Kohl’s has entered a long-term strategic partnership with personal care and beauty brand Sephora.

As part of the partnership, Sephora will be opening mini-shops “Sephora at Kohl’s” inside Kohl’s stores.

The shops, covering 2,500ft2 space, will be prominently located at the front of the store.

The partnership is initially opening the first 200 locations in fall of 2021, with plans to expand to at least 850 stores by 2023.

Kohl chief executive officer Michelle Gass said: “The Kohl’s and Sephora partnership will bring a transformational, elevated beauty experience to Kohl’s from the top global name in beauty.

“This new collaboration is an excellent example of two customer-centric, purpose-driven companies leveraging each other’s strengths to make aspirational beauty far more accessible to millions of customers all across the country.
