FARGO — Sephora will be opening a location inside of Kohl's, located at 4444 13th Ave. S in Fargo, building permit records show.

A building permit was issued Monday, March 29, to convert a portion of the Kohl's into a Sephora. Costs for the interior demolition and ceiling and flooring work were listed at $294,000.

The move is part of a larger collaboration between Sephora and Kohl's to open 200 "Sephora at Kohl's" locations by fall of this year and at least 850 locations by 2023.

The beauty retailer first announced the collaboration last December. The Sephora at Kohl's storefronts will offer a "fully-immersive, premium beauty destination, designed within a 2,500 square foot space and prominently located at the front of the store," a news release stated.

Sephora has a total of 2,600 global stores with 500 across the United States. Kohl's has 1,150 stores in 49 states and the press release noted there is "very limited overlap between the two store networks".

The move is just one piece of what Sephora called the "largest expansion" in its 21-year history. In addition to the 200 Sephora at Kohl's stores, Sephora plans to open an additional 60 freestanding stores this year, a Feb. 25 announcement stated.

Also among the expansion is a standalone Sephora inside West Acres Shopping Center, which is expected to open this year.

A firm opening date for Fargo's Sephora at Kohl's is unknown.
