This isn't an April Fools either.

Kohl's stores across the country have made the decision to temporarily close to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 spread. They announced it in a message on Facebook on March 19th:

We are temporaily closing all Kohl's stores from 7 PM today (Mar. 19th) through at least April 1st, to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19. To help our stores employees through this tough time, we will be providing pay during the two week period.

They added that the stores will be accessible online and via the Kohl's app.

If you had Kohl's Cash that has a time stamp during this two week period they encourage customers to place orders online if they wish to use the Kohl's Cash.

Even though the store is temporarily closing it is great to see they are doing their part to protect their employees and take care of them while they are unable to work. A big (air) high-five to Kohl's for being a national chain taking care of local workers here in the St. Cloud area. #FlattenTheCurve
