Hoffman Estates, Ill. --- A day after Sears Holdings Corp. Chairman Edward Lampert committed to putting more Sears products in Kmart stores, the retail company said Wednesday it is introducing DieHard batteries in nearly 1,400 Kmarts nationwide.
Besides DieHard, Sears said it has expanded its offerings of Kenmore and other home appliances into 90 Kmart stores after first adding them at Kmart in May.
Kmart acquired Sears, Roebuck and Co. in March for $12.3 billion and renamed the enlarged retailer Sears Holdings. The company has since converted about 50 of the approximately 1,500 Kmarts to the new Sears Essentials format.
