Can you actually workout in fitness attire from Kmart?

Kmart, the longtime big box retailer is fading quickly. On April 16, Kmart closed its fourth to final location in Avenel, New Jersey, leaving just three Kmart stores open across the US, David Porter reported for the Associated Press.


Its former parent company Sears Holding filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2018.



Kmart was once one of the US' largest discount stores. But over the past two decades, it has dropped from over 2,000 locations to only three.


The three brick and mortar Kmart stores that remain in the U.S.are located in Miami, Fla., Westwood, N.J. and Bridgehampton, N.Y.


Kmart is trying to stay relevant with online sales and frequent email blasts to those on past customers and email lists they are acquiring.


A quick check of Kmart's website and you see that they are "all in" on fitness apparel and equipment.


The question is, should you bull fitness attire from Kmart?
