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 –
A History of Support
Kmart and Sears are proud to team with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to find cures, provide support and save kids’ lives. Over the years, generous donations from members and associates have raised over $116 million to fight childhood cancer. St. Jude regularly brings hope to families and has increased patients’ cancer survival rate from 20% to 80% since the organization’s founding. In addition, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. Please consider joining us in the fight, as we care to dream of a child’s life without cancer.
