ALOHA HAWAIIAN SHOPPERS; KMART TO BE FIRST NATIONAL DISCOUNTER IN HAWAII
 TROY, Mich., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Kmart Corporation (NYSE: KM) announced, as part of its nationwide expansion program, entry into the Hawaiian market. The first of three Kmart stores will open in the fall of 1992 in Honolulu, on the island of Oahu.
 "We've been exploring sites in Hawaii for some time," said Tom Watkins, senior vice president of Kmart store operations. "The availability of the Home Improvement Warehouse site offered us the opportunity we've been waiting for. Kmart is excited to be entering a state with such a robust economy and it looks forward to creating several hundred jobs in the market. In fact, we are also developing two other sites -- one in Waipahu, Oahu, and one in Kahului, Maui."
 The first Honolulu Kmart will carry on-trend, name-brand merchandise at everyday low prices, tailored to the demands of the market -- apparel and accents, personal care, household essentials, home decor, leisure time and seasonal merchandise as well as automotive products and a full horticultural center.
 And for the busy shopper, a Little Caesar's Pizza Station will be located in the front of the Honolulu store.
 Kmart Corporation serves America with over 4,000 retail outlets in 50 states in the United States, in Puerto Rico and Canada. Kmart, currently operating 2,385 Kmart stores, is also the parent company for Pay Less Drug Stores, Builders Square, Waldenbooks (with stores in Hawaii), PACE Membership Warehouse Clubs, The Sports Authority and Office Max.
