Kmart launches online layaway, store-to-home shipping in Puerto Rico
Kmart announced Tuesday that it will extend its integrated retail shopping conveniences to customers in Puerto Rico, offering more flexibility both in-store and online.
For the first time this holiday season, Puerto Rico-based Kmart customers and “Shop your way” loyalty program members will have access to online layaway, store-to-home shipping, free “Anyone, Anywhere” pickup and free store pickup. The services are already available, this media outlet confirmed.
The “Anyone, Anywhere” service let customers avoid shipping fees as they purchase gifts online and have friends or family pick them up at a Kmart location, whether stateside or in Puerto Rico.
The expansion coincides with the launch of a local e-commerce website that has been created within Kmart.com, that allows customers in Puerto Rico to enter their zip code and shop online for an assortment of products.
“Kmart strives to provide a seamless experience for our customers,” said Dave Rodney, regional vice president of Kmart Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. “We are excited to give our Shop Your Way members and customers in Puerto Rico access to new options that enhance the experience in-store and online.”
Expanded in-store and online shopping features will offer added convenience to customers in Puerto Rico by giving more choices and additional ways to shop and save this holiday season, the retailer said.
Furthermore, customers will find new ways to plan holiday spending with online layaway, save time with store-to-home shipping and minimize unnecessary shipping costs with free “Anyone, Anywhere” pickup and free same-day pick up at a Puerto Rico store.
Through online layaway, Puerto Rico shoppers will be able to set purchases aside online, and and choose to ship their purchases home or pick them up from their selected Kmart store. Kmart shoppers will get free layaway online or in-store through Nov. 23, plus free shipping on purchases $59 or more for the holidays.
Meanwhile, the retailer also announced that all of its 23 Puerto Rico store locations will now offer free store-to-home shipping for customers and loyalty club members when the product they want is not immediately available in-store.
