Kmart first made ‘low prices irresistible’ to Australian’s when they opened their first department store in Victoria, back in 1969. That was the beginning of this renowned Aussie icon that now has more than 200 stores across Australia and New Zealand and is recognised as one of the most profitable discount outlets in Australia.
Their Victorian distribution warehouse located in Melbourne’s West covers a massive 14 hectares, with a floor area spanning 77000m2. This prime logistics facility located within a premier industrial logistics centre is a fully-serviced warehouse together with four separate office and amenity areas.
