Kmart Keeps the Bluelights On17 Dec, 2001 By: Hive News
Attention Kmart shoppers!
The chain is staying open in a 110-hour marathon leading up to Christmas. Kmart stores across the country (except where local ordinances forbid it) will be open continuously from 6 a.m. Thursday through 8 p.m. Dec. 24.
``As a retailer, the best way to help our customers during this busy holiday season is to keep our doors open for them to shop at their convenience,'' said Chuck Conaway, Kmart chairman and c.e.o.
Stores will be closed on Christmas Day and reopen at 6 a.m. Dec. 26.
This is the second year Kmart has extended its holiday hours. Last year all stores were open for 86 hours straight. This year, Kmart stores also extended hours over the Thanksgiving weekend and added 24 hours to the holiday blitz.
