Hoffman Estates, Ill. -- Sears and Kmart stores joined the growing list of national retailers whose stores will open on Thanksgiving Day.
Kmart, which has opened Thanksgiving Day for 22 years, this year will be open for 41 straight hours, starting at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving Day to 11 p.m. Black Friday. Sears will open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.
Sears and Kmart are delivering integrated retail shopping options. For example, if a members or customer can't find a product in-store at Sears or Kmart, they can order it in-store and have it shipped to their home for free.
"Sears and Kmart have been leaders in integrated retail, delivering convenient options to create a more rewarding shopping experience for our members, while blurring the boundaries between offline and online shopping," said Leena Munjal, senior VP customer experience and integrated retail, Sears Holdings
Plus, Kmart's latest budgeting solution for the holidays – lease-to-own through Whynot Leasing, LLC – is available nationwide starting Nov. 22. The program gives customers a no- credit-required way to take home products they need or want, right away – including doorbuster items.
