And while Kmart have been coy on the news - not confirming or denying the rumours - Facebook has been buzzing with excitement over the possibility of Kmart coming to the area, with hundreds commenting.
Said one: ‘The company should start listening to what their supporters want. A Kmart at Springfield would be a very welcome addition to the area.
Added another: ‘Bring K Mart to Springfield please!’ Said a third: ‘Kmart for Springfield hurry up please 🤗’
Added another:’Kmart just has everything and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.’
Said one more: ‘Kmart is very convenient it’s a one-stop shop for a lot of things needed that’s why I love shopping at Kmart.’
When The Courier Mail approached Kmart for an update on whether they’d be opening in the area, they said they were always on the lookout for new opportunities.
‘We are always looking for new locations ... and that includes Springfield,’ their spokesman told The Courier Mail.
‘At this time we have no announcements.’
