Just in time for the holidays, Kmart has announced expanded online shopping features and services to provide customers with even more convenient shopping choices. New this season and powered by the innovative mygofer service, customers can buy online via Kmart.com and pick up their items that same day at one of more than 600 Kmart stores.*
Customers can also shop the Kmart2go mobile website from a mobile device and then select in-store pickup for convenient shopping while on the go. Promotions via SMS text messages can even be sent directly to shoppers’ mobile devices when they sign up.
“With the launch of these popular shopping options offered by Kmart.com, customers have more choices in how they shop for their holiday purchases,” said Imran Jooma, president of eCommerce at Sears Holdings. “We’re empowering our customers with all the choices they need to make shopping the most convenient for them, wherever they may be.”
Customers can also use the Kmart2go mobile website or the Kmart2go iPhone or Android mobile application while shopping in the store. It provides access to detailed product descriptions on millions of products to help with the purchase decision.
“We are providing these convenient shopping solutions to customers so they will have the ability to find great gifts for everyone on their list while making it easy on their budget and allowing them to spend more time with the people who matter in their lives,” added Jooma.
