Hold your department store horses.

One real estate source told the fashion news site, "They've scrapped Manhattan."

Though, reportedly, the department store is still hunting for a space in one of the New York City boroughs.

Which means to get a peek at LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection in person, you'll have to arrive in bridge-and-tunnel fashion.
