The date is now set for the opening of Kohl's first department store in Berks County.

The store is taking shape across from the Broadcasting Square Shopping Center in Spring Township.

The parking lot already looks ready for shoppers, but crews are still working on the store.

The Wisconsin-based retailer is expected to open its new store March 3. A grand opening celebration is set for March 6.

Kohl’s, founded in 1962, operates nearly 1,200 stores in 49 states, including locations in Trexlertown, Lehigh Co. and at the Coventry Mall near Pottstown.
