by: RAY PITZ - Significant progress has been made on the former Sherwood Joe's Sports and Outdoors store, which is being transformed into a Kohl's Department Store. Plans are to open the new store in March and the store is seeking 105 employees to hire.Hoping to fill approximately 105 positions at its new Sherwood location, Kohl’s Department Store is hosting a job fair beginning Saturday at the Wilsonville Holiday Inn.

The fair, which continues through Wednesday, will be held at 25425 S.W. 95th Ave. in Wilsonville.

Kohl’s is looking for register operators, department associates, customer service associates, early-morning freight unloaders and evening ad set associates for the store, which is expected to open in March.

The company offers competitive compensation, great benefits and immediate merchandise discounts, according to Maggie Lund, a Kohl’s spokeswoman.

Applicants should visit or call 877-639-5645 to schedule an interview and obtain additional information regarding times and location.

The following are dates and times for the Kohl’s job fair: Saturday, Jan. 12, 10:45 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.; Jan. 13, 10:45 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.; Jan. 14, 11:45 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.; Jan. 15, 8:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Jan. 16, 8:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Kohl’s has been recognized as one of Forbes Magazine’s Most Reputable Companies.

The Wisconsin-based chain is adding 8,000 square feet to the front of the former Sherwood Joe’s store with plans to end up with a total of 58,000 square feet for retail, warehouse and office operations, according to Sherwood city planners.

In addition, a second access drive to the store will be added along Southwest 12th Street.

Joe’s, formerly known as G.I. Joe’s, closed all of its Oregon stores in 2009 after filing bankruptcy.

In the spring of 2010, Coastal Farm and Ranch was granted a conditional-use permit to locate a store at the old Joe’s site by the Sherwood Planning Commission. However, in November 2011, Kohl’s completed a land-use application to open a store at the same site. Kohl’s has more than 1,000 stores nationwide with only two other stores — one in Beaverton and one in Hillsboro — located in Washington County.
