Carson’s is returning to a Chicago suburb just in time for holiday shopping.
The department store that shuttered all locations in Illinois this year will reopen its Evergreen Park location as a new concept store on Black Friday, according to CSG Generation, which acquired the retailer.
The concept store will offer Carson’s traditional brands and prices but will also feature new services like interior design and personal styling, the company said.
“It’s been a race to prepare to open our first store, and we’re looking forward to growing our brick and mortar footprint over the coming months,” Justin Yoshimura, interim CEO, said in a statement.
The store, located at 9700 S. Western Avenue, will also hold a hiring at event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.
“If you are interested in joining us on this journey to Make Carson’s Great Again, please stop by or contact us through our website,” Store Manager Lisa Beardsley said in a statement, noting that former employees and customers will "receive priority consideration."
The parent company for Carson’s filed for bankruptcy in February, forcing all stores to close by the end of August.
The company was acquired by CSG Generation, which said it was “inspired by the opportunity to rebuild an American icon.”
