From humble beginnings in Burwood East, Victoria in 1969, we built a promise of an affordable lifestyle for all Australians. It was the beginning of a trusted Aussie icon that has revolutionised the way Australians and New Zealanders shop. We’re now an essential part of more than 300 communities. And proud of it.
Today, Kmart has more than 300 stores across Australia and New Zealand, serving millions of customers every year. Our goal is to continue to innovate the shopping experience, delighting our customers with low prices for life in every store, in every aisle, and online - every time you shop.
At our stores, distribution centres and offices in Australia, New Zealand and all over the globe. Over 44,000 team members come together for a common cause. Giving families easy access to the everyday items they need, at the lowest possible prices.
Most of our dedicated team you’ll find in our retail stores across Australia and New Zealand. Our national office is based in Mulgrave, Victoria and is home to over 1000 team members. Kmart has the largest direct sourcing business by volume and value of any southern hemisphere retailer, with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dongguan, Bangladesh, India and Indonesia employing more than 500 team members. The business forms part of the Kmart Group which includes Target Australia and is owned by Wesfamers.
Through a collaboration between our product design, merchandise, and sourcing teams, we’re proud to design and make over 80% of the products you’ll find in our stores or online. And because we source in volume via our established supplier relationships, we can create incredible products at a lower cost. Savings we happily (and famously!) pass on to our customers.
