Kohl's coming to Prien Lake Mall

By Lee Peck - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - After sitting vacant for more than a year, the old Macy's department store will soon be home to Kohl's. Neither the mall nor Kohl's is talking about any type of official agreement, but 7 News pulled the city building permit that was issued to Kohl's March 25th for 320-thousand dollars worth of renovations. It's work that is already underway - more than half a dozen dumpsters filled with debris from demolition work going on inside.

However, Prien Lake Mall Manager Debbie Seal does confirm that 30-thousand square feet of the original Macy's department store will be sectioned off on the east side facing the parking lot for new tenant space. This new space will likely house boutique and smaller chain stores.

And not to forget about the Macy's Home Store in front of the mall. It too will get a new tenant and will be home to Brousse's apparel and toy land. Brousse's co-owner and manager Charla Adams says they've outgrown their current location. And the new location will allow them to go from having 6,000 square feet to 17-thousand square feet.

"We hope to be able to expand have a little more space but also carry more lines for our customers. We will start carrying specialty strollers, juvenile furniture which is twin beds, bunk beds. We'll be expanding our current furniture selection to be able to showcase a little more and of course we'll keep our clothing and specialty items and we'll also have a complete functioning uniform department. We'll have whole lot more. And more reasons for customers to come out and see it," said Adams.  

Brousse's hopes to open their doors June 1st, keeping both the new and current Ryan Street location open for three months until the new store is fully operational. Meanwhile no word on when Kohl's will open or how many people they'll employ.
