HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This back to school season, Kmart has everything parents and their kids need to start the school year right – and makes it even easier to shop and stay on budget.  Shoppers can head to Kmart or Kmart.com to find stylish and on-trend apparel, uniform basics, the perfect backpack, must-have supplies and more at affordable prices.  Highlights include:

  • Bundles Worth Bragging About: For stylish kids on the move, Kmart created fashionable bundles with a $25 price point that let kids show off their personal style. Bundles include awesome items such as backpacks, lunch boxes and notebooks in popular themes that kids love: dogs or dinos, purples or plaids and even skaters or skulls. Parents can brag about the bundles they scored for their kids using hashtag #BundleBrag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Fifteen-Look Fashion Collections: And for those young fashionistas, Kmart has curated ridiculously awesome apparel collections that inspire 15 looks! Kids can go back to school with practically a new wardrobe with just five tops and three bottoms that can be mixed and matched in fun combinations.

"Back to school is an exciting and busy time for parents and kids.  There is so much to check off your list and it's not just pencils, erasers and notebooks.  It's also about giving kids choices that reflect their personal style that will help start them off right," said Kelly Cook, chief marketing officer, Kmart.  "At Kmart, we understand how important back-to-school time is and we want to help parents and kids get everything they need."
