In a day and age where more and more people are doing their shopping online, digital retail giant Amazon and brick & mortar mainstay Kohl's have struck an intriguing partnership.

While online shopping is certainly convenient, we've surely all had situations where we've had to return an Amazon order.

The only problem is that there's no Amazon store to take that return to.

So, it's meant having to print out a return label, package your item back up (and that's assuming that you kept the original packaging), make a side trip to the post office, drop the package off, and wait for it to arrive back at the warehouse.

But, for the last two years Amazon and Kohl's have been testing a program in a handful of Kohl's stores to allow shoppers to simply bring their Amazon returns, packaged or unpackaged, into their closest Kohl's to process the return in person and immediately.

The partnership has gotten rave reviews, and today the Associated Press is reporting that the retailers have decided to expand the program to all U.S. Kohl's stores.

With Kohl's having a healthy footprint in Ocean County, with stores in Brick, Toms River, Lacey Township, and Manahawkin, processing those online shopping returns will soon be easier than ever.

The AP report says that the program will roll out to over 1,000 Kohl's stores, including those here at the Jersey Shore, starting in July.
