HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., and SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kmart announced today that it will extend its integrated retail shopping conveniences to customers in Puerto Rico. Kmart's integrated retail strategy connects online and in-store shopping channels to provide more flexible ways to shop. For the first time this holiday season, Puerto Rico-based Kmart customers and Shop Your WaySM members will have access to online layaway, store-to-home shipping, free Anyone, Anywhere pickup and free store pickup.
The expansion coincides with the launch of a localized e-commerce channel that has been created within Kmart.com. The site also allows customers in Puerto Rico to enter their zip code and shop online at Kmart.com for a relevant assortment of products.
"Kmart strives to provide a seamless experience for our customers," said Dave Rodney, regional vice president of Kmart Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. "We are excited to give our Shop Your Way members and customers in Puerto Rico access to new options that enhance the experience in-store and online."
Expanded in-store and online shopping amenities will bring added convenience to customers in Puerto Rico by giving more choices and additional ways to shop and save this holiday season. Customers will find new ways to plan holiday spending with online layaway, save time with store-to-home shipping and minimize unnecessary shipping costs with free Anyone, Anywhere pickup and free store pickup.
Kmart customers and Shop Your Way members in Puerto Rico can now take advantage of online layaway as a way to plan their holiday spending. Customers can initiate a layaway contract online and choose to ship their purchases home or pick up their purchases from their selected Kmart store. Kmart shoppers can enjoy free layaway online or in-store through Nov. 23, plus free shipping on purchases $59 or more for the holidays.
Checking-off holiday shopping lists will be easier than ever as Kmart's 23 Puerto Rico store locations will now offer free store-to-home shipping for customers and members when the product they want is not immediately available in-store.
Free Anyone, Anywhere Pickup
Free Anyone, Anywhere Pickup provides customers with a way to alleviate shipping fees as they purchase gifts online and have friends or family pick them up at a Kmart location, whether stateside or in Puerto Rico.
Free Store Pickup
Shop Your Way members can also take advantage of free store pickup while shopping at Kmart.com, featuring free same-day pick up at a local Puerto Rico store.
