For Kohl’s & Sephora Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Holder

The announcement this week that Sephora would open shop-in-shop departments within about 200 Kohl’s stores starting next fall is a redefining game-changing moment in both the specific beauty space but also in the larger general merchandise channel for so many reasons:

• For Kohl’s, it gives them a high-profile prestige brand that will attract a new demographic to its stores. And with the ultimate goal of having Sephora shops in up to 850 of its stores Kohl’s will prove it can scale up a partnership, something it has failed to do so far with tests with Planet Fitness and Aldi.

• For Sephora, it provides a new outlet as the retailer looks to find off-mall distribution for its products. As shopping center traffic continues to decline the Kohl’s real estate becomes more attractive, a cornerstone of the company’s strategy going forward.

• For JCPenney, which has had a similar deal with Sephora going back more than a decade to the Mike Ullman era, it’s the beginning of the end of this partnership following bankruptcy-related renegotiations of its contract. This is a big hit for Penney which desperately needs a marquee third-party brand like Sephora to anchor its own weak in-house beauty offerings. The retailer will need to come up with a replacement and the pickings are slim out there right now.

• And for Target and Ulta, which linked up in a similar arrangement earlier this year, it’s of course affirmation that the model is the right one but it also provides a stronger competitor to each of them. Target and Ulta still have the upper hand in this race due to scale and the former’s inherent strength in the marketplace but it does heat things up a bit.

• For everyone else fighting it out in the mid-tier beauty space — department stores like Macy’s, Dillard’s and Belk as well as drug chains likes CVS, Walgreen and Rite-Aid — it changes the playing field…and not necessarily in a good way for them. One-stop shopping in the pandemic (and post-pandemic) era will continue to be an attractive proposition for many shoppers.

Most of all, this Kohl’s-Sephora deal addresses the elephant in the virtual room: beauty products are one of the last bastions of physical retailing in its battle to retain market share versus e-commerce. Beauty customers may place reorders online but when it comes to most of their shopping, they want to do it in person, to see how the make-up looks on their face, smell the fragrance and generally interact with the salesperson-cum-beautician.

It’s why the beauty category is so key for all retailers in this sector. It’s why this deal is much more than just skin deep.

  • 200 “Sephora at Kohl’s” locations open in fall 2021, at least 850 locations by 2023
  • Omnichannel partnership, launch of Sephora on Kohls.com in 2021
  • Sephora to bring its unique immersive prestige beauty experience with more than 100 brands to Kohl’s

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS) and Sephora today announced a long-term strategic partnership to create a new era of elevated Beauty at Kohl’s, marrying Kohl’s expansive customer reach and omnichannel convenience with Sephora’s prestige service, product selection and exceptional beauty experience.

Sephora at Kohl’s” will be a fully-immersive, premium beauty destination, designed within a 2,500 square foot space and prominently located at the front of the store. When the first 200 locations open in Fall 2021, the Kohls.com online beauty selection will also convert to exclusively showcase an expanded assortment of Sephora’s prestige product offerings. The partnership will expand into at least 850 stores by 2023, offering an expansive footprint, a wide-reaching customer base and unmatched visibility for Sephora’s brand partners within the prestige environment in which they thrive.

Sephora is the largest specialty beauty retailer in the world and the industry’s most renowned global innovator. With its cutting-edge curation of brands and emerging categories like Clean, Sephora will bring its unique, playful trial and immersive prestige beauty experience, with more than 100 carefully curated beauty brands to Kohl’s 65 million customers across the U.S. Kohl’s, with a deep focus of serving the everyday needs for the whole family, is reimagining and accelerating the company’s ambition to be the most trusted retailer of choice for the active and casual lifestyle.

“The Kohl’s and Sephora partnership will bring a transformational, elevated beauty experience to Kohl’s from the top global name in beauty,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer. “This new collaboration is an excellent example of two customer-centric, purpose-driven companies leveraging each other’s strengths to make aspirational beauty far more accessible to millions of customers all across the country. It’s an extraordinary time of change, and I am thrilled to partner with Sephora, a brand that shares our values and our passion for innovation and reinvention. Today’s announcement is a perfect illustration of the bold moves we are making at Kohl’s to accelerate our growth and reimagine our future for the next era of retail.”

“At Sephora, delivering a strong client experience through passionate employees is at the heart of who we are, and we are thrilled to find a partner who shares this identity. This is not a pop-up collaboration, but an investment our brand partners can rely on for the long-term; as a company with a history of sustained decades-long partnerships, Sephora has every confidence in the future of this collaboration and the unique experiences it will bring to consumers across the U.S.,” said Jean-André Rougeot, President & CEO of Sephora Americas. “Our partnership will be built on expanding

Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass On ‘Game-Changing’ Sephora Tie-Up And Its Big Bet On Beauty

“Game-changing” is how Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass characterized the partnership with Sephora it announced today, and the impact it will have on the retailer’s beauty business.

“It’s a massive deal,” Gass said in an interview. “We’ve been looking at the beauty opportunity for a long time. We’ve put a greater emphasis on beauty. We were doing [nicely.] We wanted to make much bigger, bolder progress.”

Sephora at Kohl’s, the 2,600-square-foot beauty destinations, are designed to look like Sephora’s own stores. At Kohl’s units with two doors – about 80% of the fleet – Sephora will have a dedicated entrance, its logo on the facade. “That’s how much we believe in this partnership,” said Gass.

The shops will be prominently located at the front of stores, with the first 200 Sephora at Kohl’s shops-in-shop bowing in fall 2021. Kohls.com’s online beauty selection will exclusively showcase an expanded Sephora assortment. The concept by 2023 will expand to at least 850 stores, Kohl’s said.

Sephora at Kohl’s will provide immersive and elevated experiences combining Kohl’s customer reach and omnichannel convenience with Sephora’s prestige service and selection of premium products.

“Beauty is expected to grow over the next five years,” Gass said. “We’re significantly under-represented. We’ll tap into that.” While beauty is only a modest low single-digit penetration of the business, Kohl’s has driven steady growth of nearly 40% over the past five years, Gass said during the retailer’s third-quarter earnings call last week. Gass also made the bullish pronouncement that Kohl’s has its sights on tripling sales and driving incremental traffic.

“As you would imagine, with a deal of this magnitude, we’ve been in conversations for a long time, many months,” Gass said.

Gass said Sephora at Kohl’s aims to make aspirational beauty products accessible to more consumers. “This is an extraordinary time of change,” said Gass. “I’m thrilled to partner with Sephora, a brand that shares our values and passion for innovation and reinvention. This is a perfect illustration of the bold moves Kohl’s is making to accelerate our growth and reimagine our future for the next era of retail.”

The new deal will allow both retailers to grow their respective customer bases. Sephora, which operates 500 stores in the Americas, will gain access to most of Kohl’s 65 million consumers who shop its 1,150-plus locations, with limited overlap between the two retail networks. Gass said, “We’re absolutely expecting younger customers.”

Kohl’s has been on a mission to attract younger consumers for several years, launching new brands such as LC Lauren Conrad, PopSugar, and creating the Pinterest-inspired, trend-oriented Outfit Bar. The retailer has also shown its propensity for innovation and taste for risk. Case in point, Kohl’s deal with Amazon
AMZN
to accept returns on behalf of the digital behemoth.

“This is not a pop-up collaboration, but an investment our brand partners can rely on for the long-term,” said Jean-André Rougeot, president

Sephora to open hundreds of beauty shops inside Kohl’s stores

Sephora will open hundreds of beauty shops inside Kohl’s department stores starting next fall, the retailer said Tuesday, just weeks after Ulta Beauty and Target announced a similar partnership.

Sephora expects to have at least 850 shops at Kohl’s stores by 2023, when a similar partnership between the beauty retailer and J.C. Penney comes to an end, Sephora said.

Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer, said in a news release the partnership would “make aspirational beauty far more accessible to millions of customers all across the country.”

Target and Bolingbrook-based Ulta Beauty announced a similar arrangement last month to put Ulta shops in 100 Target stores and on Target’s website next year, with the potential to expand to hundreds of stores.

Neither Kohl’s nor Target announced which stores would open the beauty shops.

The deal with Kohl’s is Sephora’s latest effort to expand beyond its 500 U.S. stores. Sephora has shops in about half of J.C. Penney’s department stores through a partnership that started 15 years ago.

J.C. Penney sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May and said last month it expects to emerge from bankruptcy in the first half of next year after a court approved its sale to its two largest landlords and its primary lenders.

Sephora said the companies agreed earlier this year to pursue other opportunities while continuing to run the Sephora shops at J.C. Penney stores until their agreement winds down.

In the meantime, J.C. Penney said it will be working on a new plan for its beauty department.

The new beauty destinations inside Kohl’s stores will occupy about 2,500 square feet near the store entrance. The goal is to draw new and younger customers to Kohl’s with the limited overlap of store locations. Kohl’s has more than 1,150 locations in 49 states. Sephora has around 500 of its 2,600 stores in the Americas.

Sephora, a mall-based premium beauty retailer, will bring more than 100 beauty brands to its locations inside Kohl’s stores. The new beauty department will be staffed by Sephora-trained associates.

The Sephora experience at Kohl’s will replace the current in-store beauty department.

“This new collaboration is an excellent example of two customer-centric, purpose-driven companies leveraging each other’s strengths to make aspirational beauty far more accessible to millions of customers all across the country,” said Kohl’s Chief Executive Officer Michelle Gass in the news release.

Kohl’s has said that its beauty business has experienced strong growth with sales increasing 40% over the last five years. Gass said in a conference call with investors last month that the company had plans to triple sales in the beauty category. 

The plan is to have at least 850 “Sephora at Kohl’s” locations by 2023, according to the news release. 

“This is not a pop-up collaboration, but an investment our brand partners can rely on for the long-term; as a company with a history of sustained decades-long partnerships, Sephora has every confidence in the future of this collaboration and the unique experiences it will bring to consumers across the U.S.,” said Jean-André Rougeot, President & CEO of Sephora Americas in the news release.

The news comes after Target announced that it would launch Ulta Beauty “shop-in-shop” concept to 100 stores in 2021.

The Kohl’s-Sephora collaboration does not affect the ongoing partnership between JCPenney and Sephora, begun in 2006, for Sephora to sell beauty products within JCPenney stores.

That plan will also be expanded soon, JCPenney said in a statement to USA TODAY. “We are developing a new, inclusive beauty concept that offers our customers a wide array of product,” the statement said. “We look forward to unveiling this new concept – which will be enhanced by our Salon offerings to provide an improved Beauty experience.”

Kohl’s has reported slumped sales throughout 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn. The retailer’s net sales were down 25.9% from last year

Sephora shops opening inside 200 Kohl’s stores in 2021

Beauty retailer Sephora will open shops in 200 Kohl’s locations across the U.S. in fall 2021, the companies announced Tuesday.

At least 850 more Sephora at Kohls shops will open by 2023.

A representative for Kohl’s told McClatchy News that the first 200 “Sephora at Kohl’s locations will be selected based on existing Sephora store proximity, market opportunity and customer insights.”

Sephora shops will replace Kohl’s current beauty department.

The Sephora at Kohl’s shops will occupy 2,500 square feet at the front of Kohl’s stores, showcasing the makeup, skincare, hair and fragrance offerings Sephora is known for.

Sephora products will also be available on Kohls.com, the company said.

The companies say they hope the partnership will draw younger shoppers to Kohl’s and introduce Sephora to a new group of customers who may not live near one of the beauty retailer’s 500 U.S. stores.

Kohl’s has 1,150 locations in 49 states.

“Our partnership will be built on expanding our complementary reach and scale in-store and online, creating customer-centric, prestige experiences, collaborating on new innovations, and living our shared values,” Jean-André Rougeot, President & CEO of Sephora Americas, said in the release. “We fully believe Kohl’s is the ideal partner to bring this vision to life.”

“The Kohl’s and Sephora partnership will bring a transformational, elevated beauty experience to Kohl’s from the top global name in beauty,” Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer, said.

Kohl’s isn’t the first big-box retailer to launch a partnership with major beauty retailers.

Last month, Ulta and Target announced they were partnering to open Ulta shops in 100 Target locations in 2021, with hundreds more planned.

Department stores used to dominate beauty sales, but experts say shoppers are losing interest in purchasing makeup at beauty counters due in part to the coronavirus pandemic, CNBC reported.

This is making for partnerships between big-box and beauty retailers.

A June survey from analytics firm First Insight found that 80% of women felt unsafe testing beauty products during the pandemic — a key piece of the beauty counter experience.

“The idea of a sales associate spraying perfume on cards and handing them out, and then offering to do a makeover, seems unhygienic or even dangerous to a consumer right now,” Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, co-founder of Glamsquad, told CNBC. “And even after there is a [COVID-19] vaccine distributed, my sense is the consumer’s view of hygiene and shopping for beauty is going to change.”

Experts expect an uptick in beauty sales once the pandemic subsides and in-person socializing again becomes the norm, CNBC reported. The anticipated shift toward going out could account for renewed corporate interest in the beauty industry, according to the outlet.

Sephora will open mini shops inside 850 Kohl’s stores by 2023, as retailer bets big on beauty

  • Kohl’s hopes its Sephora partnership will help triple its sales in beauty in coming years.

  • Target recently partnered with Ulta to open makeup shops in the discount retailer’s stores.

Some 200 Sephora at Kohl’s locations will open by next fall, rising to at least 850 sites by 2023, the companies announced Tuesday. Sephora will also launch on Kohl’s website next year, offering more than 100 beauty brands, some of which are exclusive to Sephora.

The announcement of the 10-year partnership comes weeks after Target unveiled plans to open hundreds of Ulta makeup shops inside the discount retailer’s stores.

The beauty category has historically been dominated by America’s department store chains, but it is now increasingly moving out of malls, giving retailers that had been hardly invested in the category an opportunity to steal share.

“When we think about the beauty industry today, we’re very underrepresented,” Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass said. “It’s a huge market [and] it’s expected to grow over the next few years.”

The Sephora shops on Kohl’s will be about 2,500 square feet, offering most of the same services found at other Sephora stores, including help with makeup application, and replacing Kohl’s current beauty assortment.

Sephora employees will staff the locations, which will be positioned near the front of the store and occasionally accessible by a separate entrance, Gass said. The Sephora logo will join Kohl’s outside the stores.

“We’re going to be very loud about this,” Gass said. “There’s no question that [shoppers] will see Sephora from the exterior of the building.”

While the beauty industry has been hurt by fewer women dressing up for the office and other special events during the Covid pandemic, some bright spots point to stronger days ahead.

U.S. sales of prestige beauty products — those sold mainly in department stores — dropped 17% year over year to $3.7 billion during the third quarter, according to The NPD Group. That marked a softer decline than during the second quarter, buoyed by nail products and body products like soaps and exfoliators. Sales of fragrances were also up, according to the NPD data.
