Kmart became famous for its Blue Light Specials when a blue police light was lit to let shoppers know that a sale was going on in the given department.
The history of Kmart
The company was founded in 1899, and has since grown rapidly to nearly 1,000 stores nationwide. You can also find Kmart locations in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. They briefly operated in Mexico, Canada, and a few countries in the Middle East.
It is the third largest discount chain in the world, and has been mentioned many times in movies and television shows because of its popularity (such as Troop Beverly Hills and Rain Man).
A Kmart employee has been saving tapes of the music played in Kmart stores for over 27 years.
A Kmart employee has been saving tapes of the music played in Kmart stores since 1989. Every week or month, employees would be sent a tape of the music and ads to be played in the store from the corporate headquarters.
Instead of throwing away the old tapes when the new ones arrived, one former Kmart employee decided that they were going to save them. Since then, the tapes have been digitized and are now available online for anyone to listen to.
If you like, you can listen to collections such as “Kmart’s 30th Anniversary Program”, a series of ads for Kmart Pharmacy, or music from a specific week or month.
