Kohl’s, California prosecutors reach nearly $1M settlement
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Kohl’s has reached a nearly $1 million settlement with prosecutors in four California counties who alleged some of the Wisconsin-based company’s department stores charged customers more than the price advertised on shelves and signs.
The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office announced the settlement on Friday.
Prosecutors in Riverside, Fresno, Santa Cruz and Shasta counties had sued Kohl’s, claiming it overcharged customers and failed to adequately disclose information about its “Kohl’s Cash” promotion.
After-hours emails to Kohl’s representatives were not immediately returned.
Riverside County prosecutors say Kohl’s did not acknowledge any wrongdoing as part of the settlement but has implemented enhanced procedures to improve the accuracy of its pricing.
Kohl’s is based in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
