This logo was only used at five prototype locations. Four in the Peoria, IL area (Peoria, Pekin, Morton and Washington) as well as White Lake, MI. The name of the city would be displayed alongside or under this logo. The colors were changed as well using grey and lime colors.

This logo was finally discontinued with the closure of the Morton Kmart in 2016.

Kmart logo 2004

In 2004, Kmart acquired Sears to become Sears Holding Corporation and created a new logo, and most of the Big and Super Kmart stores were rebranded as simply 'Kmart' while keeping their features.

Two alternate versions of this logo exist, one used on many locations removes the lowercase K (often replacing it with the larger K at the top) and another removes the large K at the top, however this was only used at three locations, the first being in Redlands, California.
