Maybe you've thought about it... maybe you haven't.
But someone from news.com.au has decided to do some research as to what the 'K' in Kmart actually stands for.
And to be honest with you, the results are kind of disappointing.
Because, according to the Australian retail chain, it turns out that the ‘K’ doesn’t officially stand for anything.
However, we all know the letter 'K' wasn’t just plucked from thin air.
So after a little more digging we discovered the American version of the company was founded by travelling salesman Sebastian Spering Kresge.
Mr Kresge had 600 stores bearing his surname throughout the States, which were later converted into the 'Kmart' brand - with the K being a nod to its founder.
So, there you go!
