A $1.1 million necklace from Kohls jewelry shop in Western Pennsylvania helped the family escape the poverty that plagued their neighborhood when they were young.
A man who identified himself as James, who also wanted to be known only as James and was working as a salesperson for Kohl, said he purchased the $1 million bracelet last year in a local Kohl location.
James said the bracelet, which he bought in February of 2018, came with a $100 gift certificate for a family member’s wedding.
The bracelet is an example of the Kohls luxury line, a collection of jewelry with an array of styles, including earrings, necklaces, earrings with beads, bracelets and necklasses, James said.
James and his wife, Michelle, have a son, Dylan, 8, and daughter, Kourtney, 6, who have lived in the same home for two years.
James said his daughter, a jewelry buyer, had a similar bracelet when she moved into the home.
Kohl’s has been under fire recently for its $1 trillion in sales during the financial crisis.
The company has also been under scrutiny for the way it handles customer complaints.
In September, a customer filed a class action lawsuit alleging that Kohl and other retailers have a poor track record when it comes to customer complaints about its customer service.
The lawsuit alleged that customers were frequently told they were not receiving prompt, timely service, or that the company could not guarantee a return or refund for any problems with their order.
In response, Kohl told customers that its goal was to provide an “effective and responsive customer service experience,” the lawsuit said.
Kohls stock dropped more than 13 percent on the news.
The stock has since recovered and recovered again.
