Kmart’s new K hub store has opened in Port Douglas with savvy shoppers flocking to the store yesterday to scoop up the opening specials.
THE Port Douglas store is one of 50 K hub stores across the country. K hub stores are a smaller format than the Kmart brand. They are designed to give regional communities access to the popular kids, home and clothing range in colourful new hub stores.
We’ve been part of the Port Douglas community for the past 11 years and we’re so excited to continue our journey with Kmart, one of Australia’s most iconic brands. Our K hub store is stocked full of great value, on-trend products that we know our customers are going to absolutely love! It’s the ‘best of the best’…Kmart’s most popular products across kids, home and clothing.K hub Port Douglas Store Manager, Brent Beach
The K hub store will also be a collection point for Target. Customers will also be able to shop Target’s full product range online and visit the K hub in store to collect their shopping. Port Douglas Store Manager, Brent Beach reports that “the store will also offer customers unprecedented accessibility to two of our key Kmart Group brands, as the hub will become a collection point for online Target orders.”
Familiar local faces welcome shoppers, with many of the staff carried over from the Target Country, “seven of our Target team members have joined the K hub team; and we have 13 new team members from the local community with recruitment ongoing. ” Mr Beach reports.
A vibrant and contemporary Indigenous artwork “Ignite the Wonder” welcomes customers in store. Kmart engaged Gilimbaa Creative Agency to create a visual narrative that represents and share their commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and community. Rachael Sarra, a Goreng Goreng artist, created the piece, which celebrates the joy and wonder of community connection. Given the numbers of happy shoppers in store so far, K hub are doing a great job.
The new retail opening helps to revitalise the retail sector in Port Douglas, attracting shoppers into the heart of Macrossan Street’s retail precinct.
