KMart is a leading department store known for great values and convenience. KMart carries everything from clothes to kitchen wares and furniture. It is a great place to stock up on basics. The recent merger with Sears has expanded KMart's offerings of tools and appliances.
KMart traces its history to 1899 when Sebastian Spering Kresge (The K in KMart) opened his first five and dime in Detroit. With a good selection of quality merchandise at a fair price, KMart expanded through the years and tackled different markets as the shopping landscape in America Evolved.
