Grab your credit cards and stock up on caffeine pills – New Zealand’s first 24-hour Kmart is coming to Auckland.

The new store will open its doors on 15 August in Sylvia Park, already a shopping hotspot.

A series of activities throughout the day will celebrate this glorious new era, including prize giveaways, face painting, a late-night market, and interactive workshops hosted by the Kmart team.

The new Kmart will be located in the space formally occupied by Countdown, giving shoppers 5,000 square metres of bargains to drool over, day and night.

“At Kmart, we want to make everyday living brighter for our customers, whether that means creating on-trend products at everyday low-prices everyone can enjoy, opening stores in new communities or extending operating hours to make shopping more convenient,” said Jason Picard, Kmart’s New Zealand country manager.

“We want our customer experience with the brand to be a really positive one, which is why we are proud to offer click-and-collect services across our entire New Zealand store network, and why we are constantly expanding our online offer.”
