Kmart has announced that it is set to open its doors at Highpoint Shopping Centre later this year. 

The retailer will move into David Jones' former bottom level once the department store reconfigures to a single-level tenancy.

Instead of spanning two floors, David Jones will occupy the level three retail space and offer a curated product mix specific to the Highpoint customer. 

Meanwhile, the Highpoint Target store will close in anticipation of the incoming Kmart. 

Every team member currently employed at the Target will be offered a new position within the new Kmart. 

Highpoint centre manager Cristina Persico thanked the Target team and welcomed the refresh of David Jones. 

"We are thankful for all the Target team has contributed to the centre and our customers over the years, and we are excited to support the evolution of David Jones at Highpoint. 

"We continue to focus on delivering an experience that inspires and excites our shoppers.

"We are pleased to welcome Kmart to the centre later this year," she said. 

Kmart Australia’s retail director John Gualtieri echoed Persico's comments. 

"At Kmart, we aim to make everyday living brighter for all of our customers and believe giving them greater accessibility to our on-trend and affordable product range helps do so.

"We are excited to open our doors at Highpoint later this year," he said. 

The retailers that are set to replace Target are yet to be announced. 

Kmart is set to open in Highpoint in late 2021.
