Kmart 43069910 Multifunction Sewing Machine
Kmart is a retail chain that was founded in 1962 in the United States. At its peak, Kmart was one of the largest discount department store chains in the world, with thousands of stores in the US, Canada, and other countries. However, in recent years, Kmart has struggled to compete with other retailers and has closed many of its stores.
In 2018, Sears Holdings, Kmart’s parent company, filed for bankruptcy and has since closed even more Kmart stores. Today, there are still a few Kmart stores in operation, but the chain is no longer as prominent as it once was.
