How do I return an item to Kmart?
You’ll have three options to return something to Kmart:
|Scheduled pickup||This option is available for large home-delivered items. To schedule a pickup, you will need your sales check number and phone number used to place your order.|
|Returns by mail||You’ll need to request a shipping label online to begin the process. Shipping costs will be deducted from your refund, unless the return is a result of a company error.|
|In-store returns||Return your in-store or online purchase at the customer service desk of your nearest Kmart location. Include all original paperwork, parts and accessories, as well as the packing slip, if ordered online.|
Exclusions apply. Contact customer service for information about returning oversized, perishable, damaged or defective items.
Kmart’s returns address
Before you mail in your Kmart return, you’ll need to contact customer service for a shipping label. The proper return address should be printed on your label for you. Just stick the label to the outside of your package and drop it off in the mail. The cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
When’s the next sale?
Kmart runs special promotions and sales periodically throughout the year. Sometimes, the department store will offer a special “$1 down” promotion on its layaway payment option. If this is available, you’ll only have to pay a $1 down payment instead of the standard $10.
You can also always browse through Kmart’s clearance section on its website, which lists hundreds of great deals arranged by category. Another option is to sign up for finder’s deals newsletter so you can be the first to know of a killer deal from all your favorite stores!
What sets this brand apart?
Kmart captured a part of American pop culture that still remains alive and well today through a handful of popular movies like Six Days Seven Nights, Rain Man and Madea Goes to Jail, which have included the company’s old catchphrase, “Attention, Kmart shoppers!” The phrase came about as a way to announce its famous Blue Light Specials, when a Kmart employee would light up a spinning blue light to signify a special discount throughout the store.
Despite filing for bankruptcy in 2002, Kmart has been on the upswing in recent years. Many people are surprised to find out that Kmart bought Sears back in 2004 — and not the other way around. Kmart still currently has stores in 47 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam, plus has quite the selection of online items.
True to its beginnings, Kmart is still largely focused on retailing a wide range of goods at some of the lowest prices around.
What do people really say about this brand?
Kmart still very much has a loyal fan base who remember shopping at the popular retail giant before its bankruptcy in the early 2000s. However, some of the company’s new and old customers have concerns about too much outsourcing, declining customer service and poor atmosphere when shopping in-store that can’t compete with newer buildings.
What is Kmart’s history?
Kmart’s story begins when traveling salesman SS Kresge started selling to all 19 of Woolworth’s stores. After seeing the success of these stores, Kresge decided to open up the first SS Kresge Company store in Detroit. By 1912, the company had 85 stores and over $10 million in sales. Then, in 1962, the company opened the first Kmart discount department store, also in Detroit. Within that same year, 17 other Kmart stores opened their doors. In 1977, the company’s name officially changed to the Kmart Corp., and by 1987, the last remaining Kresge stores were sold off.
Then, in 2002, Kmart filed for bankruptcy protection, closing 600 stores. By 2003, Kmart Corp. exited chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and made plans for future growth. Today, the company, now known as Sears Holdings Corporation, owns Sears and is headquartered in Chicago.
How can I contact customer support?
Contact Kmart customer service by live chatting online or calling 1 (866) 562-7848. You can also try sending a private message through the company’s Facebook page if you’re having trouble getting in touch with customer support.
What about social media?
Kmart is active on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. You’ll find a healthy mix of deals/promotional offers, style and decor ideas and news across these platforms. Although the company also has Twitter and Google+ accounts, there haven’t been posts on these pages within the last few years.
