Herald Square has JC Penney, Union Square's getting Nordstrom Rack (not to mention TGI Friday's), and now some lucky midtown neighborhood might get a Kohl's. Today's WWD reports that Wisconsin-based big box store has been checking out locations in Times Square and Columbus Circle. The company wouldn't confirm anything, but over the past few years, they've opened stores in the outer boroughs and in New Jersey, so it does seem like they're creeping ever closer to Manhattan. If they do show up sometime soon, they'll bring with them collabs from Vera Wang, Polo Ralph Lauren's Chaps, Daisy Fuentes and Dana Buchman.
