Note: Today I have accomplished what I had been hoping to finish for the past 6 years - ‘publish’ my book about Kohl’s Department Stores! The book has been 'posted’ these past couple of weeks as I have edited and updated, chapter by chapter. The table of contents will be a part of this post.
It is my hope in the next couple of weeks that I will put the book back into one document, then have available here on this site for easy downloading. And if, upon reading, you come across something that needs correcting or improvement, please let me know.
