About us

Our history

Kmart opened Australia’s first discount department store in Burwood, Victoria in 1969. It was the beginning of a proud Aussie icon that has revolutionised the way Australians and New Zealanders shop. Today, Kmart has more than 200 stores across Australia and New Zealand and is recognised as one of the most profitable discount department stores in Australia.

Our team

We employ approximately 30,000 team members who mainly work in our retail stores. Our national office is based in Mulgrave, Victoria and is home to around 800 team members.

Our vision

Kmart’s vision is to provide families with everyday products at the lowest prices. We strive for this vision through high-volume sales, efficient operations, adaptable stores and a great culture.

Better Together - Our sustainable development program

We’ve been listening to those most important to us – our customers, our people and our partners – to develop a sustainable development program that reflects the needs of our community.

Local and global community

From its earliest days, Kmart has been close to the communities where it operates and we support a number of charitable organisations to improve the lives of those who need a helping hand.
