by: RAY PITZ - OPENING SOON - Kohl's plans a March 6 grand opening with a soft opening set for March 3Both Kohl’s department store and Dutch Bros. Coffee will open new Sherwood stores in March.

After extensive remodeling and expansion, Kohl’s will hold a grand opening in the former G.I. Joe’s site on March 6. A “soft opening” is set for March 3

“Kohl’s is excited to open the doors to the new Sherwood location, offering great savings on quality, stylish brands while helping shoppers to stay within their budgets,” said Denton Bauer, district manager for the new Kohl’s location.

The Wisconsin-based chain added an estimated 8,000 square feet to the building they'll occupy, ending up with 58,000 square feet of space for retail, warehouse and office operations.

Kohl’s recently held a job fair in anticipation of hiring 105 employees.

Meanwhile, Dutch Brothers, the Grants Pass-based coffee franchise, will open its 367-square-foot drive-through kiosk on March 1. The business is located in the Sherwood Plaza.

Ryan Hawkins, a Sherwood resident for the last nine years, is the owner-operator of the location. Hawkins, who began his career with Dutch Bros. in 1995, also owns three other franchises.

“I liked the direction of Dutch Bros., what it was founded upon, and I knew I wanted to franchise,” said Hawkins.

The Sherwood Dutch Bros. will employ 10 people. Hawkins and his wife Abby are the parents of two boys, Mason, 4, and Cody, 2.
