Remember how last week I did this whole thing about the new enhanced SEARS stores? This week It’s KMART. More enhancements going on at your local KMART. read on…
I headed to Astor place in NYC to the big KMART on the corner of Broadway and 8th street.
I was met by manager ..BOB
Bob took me through the whole store and talked a bit about all the new enhancements. Right away, I noticed the bigger signs, wider isles and softer lighting.
Kmart has a an amazing program called mygofer it applies to Sears stores too.
You can buy an item online and then schedule to pick it up in the store! Oh Yea! So if you are at work and need some underwear or sheets or gift for someone- order online while the boss isn’t looking and when it’s time to go home, swing by and pick it up from KMART.
In addition, for all in NYC, there is… IN HOME DELIVERY!!! Yes can you believe it. and not just on Kmart goods but also bananas and home things. KMART on Astor place in NYC has a concierge service where you can get practically anything! Bob, the manager, told me about a certain local celebrity couple who uses mygofer all the time. How great to get in home delivery in NYC… that is one delivery guy who will not be ‘fired’! 😉
Kmart also has upgraded their manniquins and created trendy ‘zones’ in their junior departments.
Some of the big changes like restructing of the display areas and making little coves for themed products come to the store in 2011.
Kmart has also seriously upped the ante on fashion. When I was at BLOGHER this summer, I met with the Kmart people about their fashion lines and it was visually amazing…with prices that can’t be beat.
So overall, I look forward to the changes being made at Kmart. Most excited to try out the mygofer program!
Why don’t you go to Kmart to see the changes for yourself. I’ll help you!
