Founded in 1962 in Garden City, Michigan by Sebastion S. Kreege, K-Mart is now the 3rd leading discount department store in the US. It merged with Sears in 2004. Today the K-mart stores are usually located in strip malls and carry household items, jewelry and fashion, office supplies and limited groceries. The Big K-mart stores carry the same as a regular store but specializes on home items, children’s clothes, and food. At K-mart Super Centers, you will find all of the above with the addition of a grocery store, garden center, video store, bank, pharmacy and eateries.
