Kohl's Drops Jennifer Lopez Collection, Ending 10-Year Partnership


NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- During an earnings call Tuesday, Kohl's announced it is dropping the Jennifer Lopez "down-trending" brand, ending a ten-year partnership.

Seven other brands will also be dropped.

The Jennifer Lopez Collection -- which was founded in 2010 by Lopez and her then-husband Marc Anthony and debuted at Kohl's in 2011 -- includes sportswear, accessories, watches and perfume.

"This will create space to introduce a more compelling and current offering to our customers, while improving the overall clarity through reduced choice counts,” said Kohl’s chief executive Michelle Gass.

"We’ve nearly doubled our active sales since 2013, and we see continued momentum in this category as customers focus on staying healthy.”

Kohl's, like nearly all retailers, has had a steep decline in sales and revenues amid the coronavirus pandemic. It has also shut down stores.
