UPDATE: 'Fresh' changes on the way for popular Kmart store

EVERYBODY loves a bargain, and Kmart is a well known hotspot for finding great products at a low price.

Following a major renovation at Ballina's store in 2019, a Kmart Australia spokeswoman has confirmed the Lismore store, which is located in the Lismore Shopping Square complex, is set to undergo an 'extensive' refurbishment commencing February 3.

The spokeswoman said the refurbishment will take approximately three weeks to be completed, with minimal disruption to customers.

"All works will take place overnight to minimise the disruption to customers and engage them in the new look through the three weeks programme," she said.

The spokeswoman said the refurbished store will showcase a "fresh Kmart layout that has been rolled out nationally as part of our commitment to an improved shopping experience for customers".

"The store will feature our low-priced everyday products through to brightly lit, easy to shop product worlds across clothing, toys and home," she said.

"The design includes central self-serve check outs, wider aisles for easy wheel chair and pram access and bolder graphics for navigational ease, and a more convenient shopping experience.

"We will also be presenting a new shopfront with a visual merchandise window for displays and Indigenous artwork to the left hand side of the entrance."

She said with no closures expected, employees will not be affected by the refurbishment.

"No jobs are expected to be impacted," she said.

"During the refurbishment, we will be increasing the work offered to a number of our team members in order to complete the refurbishment program. Additionally team members from other stores will also be assisting."

The store recently celebrated its 40th year of operation in Lismore in 2019.
