A crowd is expected when Kmart opens its doors to the Dubbo public on Thursday.
In July, Wesfarmers announced they were closing the Target store and reopening it as a Kmart.
The store will be ready to welcome customers from 8am on Thursday at Dubbo Square, however, it will be a quieter affair than normal to ensure everyone is COVID safe.
Kmart has reassured customers there will be additional safety measures in place to protect customers from coronavirus.
ALSO MAKING NEWS:
There will be crowd control in front of the store to ensure those waiting remain 1.5 metres apart, plenty of cleaning and customers will be encouraged to use EFTPOS to pay for their items.
A Welcome to Country will be performed by a representative from the Aboriginal Land Council and Dubbo mayor Ben Shields will also be present.
The store has been highly anticipated in Dubbo.
Kmart Dubbo will be open seven days a week from 8am until 8pm.
In addition to the Dubbo and Orange stores, Kmart is also planning to open in Bathurst on October 29 and a smaller scale store will be in Mudgee in early 2021.
Like Dubbo, the Bathurst and Mudgee Target stores will be closed to be converted to Kmart.
