Since last fall the company has been offering a line of apparel and accessories under the name The Thalia Sodi Collection.
Since last fall Kmart has been offering a line of apparel and accessories under the name The Thalia Sodi Collection.
"While the Thalia Sodi Collection is inspired by her personality and culture, the line has a very broad appeal, clearly resonating with today's confident, modern woman," the spokeswoman says.
Last August Kmart launched a collection of merchandise that was inspired by the Latina actress and singer Thalia Sodi. Available in selected Kmart stores in such markets as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, the Thalia line includes branded apparel for women and girls, as well as footwear, accessories, jewelry, intimates, hosiery, and bed and bath products.
"Each of these brands, including Martha Stewart Everyday, Joe Boxer, Thalia Sodi, Route 66 and Sesame Street, will be highlighted in our new campaign, but we will always emphasize that Kmart is the only place to buy them.
In a year notable for a dearth of both positive financial news and meaningful marketing activity, Kmart did make at least one notable marketing move:At mid-year the company announced that Thalia Sodi, the popular Mexican entertainer, would lend her name and considerable reputation and talent to a range of apparel, jewelry and accessories merchandise sold primarily at Kmart stores in Hispanic communities throughout the country.
Most recently it debuted a fashion apparel and accessories line aimed at Hispanic women under the name of the popular Hispanic pop star Thalia Sodi. Some industry observers have estimated that the line could generate as much as $500 million in sales for Kmart in its initial year.
The ads, spearheaded by television commercials that debuted during the World Series and continue to air during popular prime-time programs, emphasize the discounter's acknowledged strengths in its efforts to reconnect with what executives characterize as the "New America consumer." Exclusive lines, including Martha Stewart Everyday, Joe Boxer, Thalia Sodi and Route 66, take center stage, with the message driven home that they are available only at Kmart.
But the launch earlier this month of the new Thalia Sodi fashion apparel and accessories collection, if properly executed, will go a long way toward rectifying that situation, reviving the retailer's fortunes while creating a definable difference and providing unique advantage in its efforts to attract the Hispanic consumer.
