Kmart should franchise
I just had a friend ask me if Kmart allowed private owners to franchise the Kmart brand by opening their own store if I’d do it which really got me thinking about how it could be the way to help save Kmart. If I had the money to franchise a Kmart of course I would do it! Each franchise would need to carry the basic offerings the “Traditional” smaller Kmart’s carry but if the franchisee wanted to offer customers more, other options to operate “Big” Kmart’s or even Supercenter’s could be available. Each store would be similar but the owner could add whatever extra merchandise they chose along with other amenities such as a K-Cafe and some could have a Pharmacy.
