For the first time ever, Kmart stores around the U.S. will be open for 86 hours straight beginning 6 a.m. on Thursday until 8 p.m. Sunday and offering savings up to 70 percent off on more than 40,000 items.
Last minute shoppers whose shopping has been delayed by recent winter storms will be able to shop for great bargains at their local Kmart store on their way home from work, in transit to holiday parties or after the kids are fast asleep.
From 70 percent off all fine and precious jewelry to 50 percent off table games and holiday linens or 33 percent off ornaments and animated figurines, shoppers will find gifts for everyone on their list.
Other super finds include:
* Hundreds of televisions, VCRs, DVDs and other popular electronics items on sale
* 40 percent off all cold-weather apparel and ladies coats * $20 off all in-stock scooters and in-stock bikes * And significant other savings in hot departments throughout the store.
"Our insights have told us that with the harried pace leading up to Christmas, coupled with the weather difficulties around the country, consumers just have not had the time to get done what they need to get done before the big day," said Brent Willis, Kmart's new Chief Marketing Officer. "Now they can get it done at Kmart and their holiday budget can go farther with the great values and some of the best prices ever in our stores."
