Kmart Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: KMRT) is helping shoppers "bring it home for the holidays" with exclusive brands, special giveaways, a visit from Santa and the brightest community spirit of the season.
The shopping fun begins with a special Thanksgiving Day Sale from 7 a.m.-9 p.m., offering great values and brands to jump-start gift-giving and holiday planning. Customers can shop early and save during a special 5-Hour Sale on Friday Nov. 28, 6-11 a.m., then enjoy more values during the 2-Day Sale which continues Friday until midnight, and Saturday, Nov. 29, 7 a.m. to midnight. The first 100 eligible customers at each store on Friday will receive a Kmart Gift Card valued at $1-$100.
Customers can celebrate the holidays to the fullest by bringing home festive outdoor lighting or beautiful Martha Stewart Everyday™ Holiday trees and decorations from seven exclusive collections. From Golden Traditions and Christmas Favorites to Woodland Holiday and First Snowfall, Kmart customers will find hundreds of new traditions and creative ways to fill their homes with the warmth of the season.
"With exclusive brands like Martha Stewart Everyday, Joe Boxer, Thalia Sodi, Route 66 and Sesame Street, Kmart is filled with the best sparkle, joy and fun of the holiday season," said Karen Austin, senior vice president, chief information officer and chief marketing officer. "Kmart is pleased to offer our customers the brands they know and love, 'right here, right now' and just in time to bring it home for the holidays."
From traditional gifts such as fine jewelry, electronics, toys, games, apparel, cookware and tool sets, to unique items like billiard tables and nostalgia stereos with turntables, Kmart has the hottest items for everyone's wish list.
The holiday fun continues on December 6, when Santa will be visiting Kmart stores from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Santa will be giving away stickers, coloring sheets, and special Holiday giveaways to the first 150 children at each store. The first 100 children will also receive a special toy coupon.
This holiday season, Kmart will again participate in two national community outreach efforts, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program and the Salvation Army Christmas Bell Ringers Program. This is Kmart's third year as a sponsor of Toys for Tots which helps make the holidays brighter by providing toys for more than four million children each year. Kmart stores will participate as collection sites for toys for children of all ages through December 17. Additionally, for the first time, customers who visit kmart.com and click "Toys" can make a cash donation to the Toys for Tots Foundation. Salvation Army Bell Ringers will be collecting donations at Kmart stores nationwide. Last year the Salvation Army raised more than $6.8 million at Kmart during the holidays. Money raised assists needy families and children and offers support for troubled adults.
