Does anyone know what the "K" actually stands for in "K-Mart"!?
Harry B. Cunningham, who became Kresge President in 1959. Cunningham had been studying other discount houses and developed a new strategy for the Kresge organization.
Under Cunningham’s leadership, the first Kmart discount department store opened in 1962 in Garden City, Michigan. Seventeen additional Kmart stores opened that year, leading to corporate sales of more than $483 million that year.
The "K" comes from the company's founder, Sebastian Spering Kresge, K-Mart use to be called "Kresge" until they adopted the "K-Mart" name.
Haha, I know right? A pretty random question but when you actually think about it, where the hell does the 'K' come from!?

Kresge after the founder. I think his first name is Sebastian..
