Kmart has joined forces with the Drop Your Boss campaign, raising money for the Graeme Dingle Foundation by throwing its South Zone manager off the Sky Tower.
Late of September last year Sears Holdings announced its plans to possibly close 204 US Kmart stores. The same time last year Wesfarmers Kmart in Australia boosted earnings by 16.3 percent. So why are two similar stores facing two very different financial outcomes?
It looks like dangerous times ahead for fans of discount retailer Kmart: its New Zealand website has finally stepped into the ecommerce space and updated its site to feature its most popular products. For now, you can only peruse the products without buying them, with the ability to buy online coming in the next couple of months.
Good news for Kmart lovers in the capital: Work is about commence on a second store in Petone. The 5200 square metre store will feature Kmart's new store layout that is being rolled out across its network and is expected to open mid-2017.
The people have spoken and they all agree: Kmart needs an online store. We can now confirm that the much loved big-box retailer is indeed going to be entering the online market space in New Zealand.
