Jason Picard, Kmart New Zealand Manager “Kmart has been waiting for a suitable footprint in Invercargill and found the right location with Windermere Holdings along with local builder Calder Stewart.
We look forward to working alongside the developer to deliver this project for our Invercargill customers.
We are extremely excited to be able to offer employment of 100 new jobs to the area along with our irresistibly low prices on products to help make everyday living brighter.”
Formerly tenanted by Brownies and Clean Biz, the site is currently being prepared for demolition.
The complex will include other food, clothing and accessory type stores including a Muffin Break cafe.
