Group Description

Any Wisconsinite can recognize them. Arch-roofed store buildings; often with curved beams extending to anchors planted in the ground.

The first Kohl's food store was opened by Max Kohl in Milwaukee over three decades before the family expanded into dry goods. At its height, the firm operated no fewer than 60 food stores throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana.

In 1983 Kohl's food operations were sold to A&P, and the last stores in Milwaukee, Racine and Waukesha counties ultimately closed their doors in August 2003. But, the distinctive buildings live on; empty or repurposed; monuments of glorious curves upon the landscape to times gone by.

So, let's snap some pictures of old Kohl's food stores!

The only guidelines:
* Although some chains in other states (such as Penn Fruit) used similar store designs, please only post Kohl's food store pictures here.
* Please, no pictures of Kohl's department stores (unless it's a food store-department store combo. Yes, such things once existed.)
