Kmart, Target and Catch.com.au have joined forces to offer free delivery on Christmas shopping.

Wesfarmers, which owns the three businesses, announced the news on Friday, explaining that as Christmas can make budgeting difficult, it is offering a single membership granting customers free delivery on orders over $45.

“We have been listening closely to our customers and we can see across all of our businesses that the way they want to shop is evolving. More and more of our customers are shopping online and they are looking for a better and more seamless shopping experience whenever and wherever they shop with us,” said Kmart Group managing director Ian Bailey.

“We’re going to look at ways to make shopping easier for our customers across all three businesses and that will start with this subscription offer in time for this Christmas.

“Almost everything you need this Christmas is available across the Kmart Group and you’ll now be able to get it delivered free with a Club Catch membership.”
