Kmart wants you to ship your pants

  1. They need to do something because all the k-marts here are frightening depressing ghost stores.   No one wants to shop in them.

    1.  They are like Walmarts without the…   I can’t think of anything that wouldn’t sound classist so make up your own joke.  But yes, they are sad places because poor people are getting poorer and people  with money don’t go to stores.   They are doomed because pants are the last things people want to shit in, I mean ship.  

  2. When I saw it played on The Today Show (the television does not fall under my jurisdiction in the morning), I couldn’t help but giggle, and almost shipped my pants myself.

    Mom, however, left the room without a word.

  3. Beautifully done. Can’t believe the concept made it through the process without being killed. It’ll take a lot more than this to save the brand though. 

  4. There’s an old joke about Kmart. The upscale area of Birmingham is Mountain Brook and there are a whole school of jokes about Mountain Brook Housewives. Such as:

    What a three words a Mountain Brook Housewife never hears?

    Attention K-mart Shoppers

    Ba doom boom! I’m here every Friday!

    1. <3 Bham.  In the process of applying for jobs in hopes of relocating there sometime before summer's end.

  5. Yep, funny commercial–makes me want to go there to reward them, but the average store is such a shiphole.  Anyone know if you can order online and have it shit?

  6. I’d actually like shopping at KMart because I can find the utilitarian stuff I want, cheap.  What keeps me from returning often is the fact that they have 20 checkout lanes, but usually only 1 or 2 are open.  At times I’ve been so frustrated, that I’ve left my full cart next to the line, and walked out.  If there’s some poor s.o.b. at the misnamed Courtesy Desk, I try to let them know why I’m leaving, but they’re often 1 of the 2 open lanes, so they’re too busy for me to bother them.
    I can’t be the only person who gives up.  Why would you bother to run a store, but under-staff the very department that collects your money for you?  It seems like corporate insanity.
