In addition, Kmart attempted to compete against Wal-Mart on price[edit]

In addition, Kmart attempted to compete against Wal-Mart on price, which failed because Wal-Mart contrived to meet and beat Kmart's price cuts.

Puh-leeeeze. Maybe it's just me, but the notion of contriving carries with it a rather clear suggestion of conspiracy, scheming, and subterfuge. I'd feel more comfortable with "opted", "was able", or "diabolically reset its pricing so as".

Super-K and Big-K[edit]

Could someone write about Super-Ks (which I heard don't exist anymore) and Big-Ks (which I heard are going to renamed just K-Mart again)? -newkai | talk | contribs 02:23, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Super Kmart still exists. There is one here in Chillicothe, Ohio. I thik Little Caesars is what keeps it open though. They do have somewhat of a good location though. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.181.142.106 (talk) 06:00, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Revenue error[edit]

The revenue figure for 2010 said '$15.593 million'.

I'm just picking through the Kmart financial report for 2010 and someone mistook the comma for a decimal place. It's actually $15,593 million, or $15.593 BILLION.

Here's a link to the financial report PDF: http://www.searsholdings.com/invest/docs/SHC_2010_Form_10-K.PDF#pagemode=thumbs&page=1&zoom=100,0,0

The figures for Kmart are on page 28. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong?

Thanks,

KDollar seems to be gone[edit]

I moved the KDollar section from Current Subsidiaries to Former Subsidiaries, and edited it to use the past tense. It appears that neither of the stores listed is still open, and I could not find any mention of KDollar or their logo on KMart's website. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.199.53.220 (talk) 23:49, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Music[edit]

Could there possibly be a mention of the recent release of several of K-Mart's background music tapes to Archive, which apparently have become somewhat popular, somewhere in the article? I'm thinking possibly under the "corporate affairs" section. http://archive.org/details/attentionkmartshoppers MXocrossIIB (So, you were saying?); 03:47, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
