Craving that late night retail therapy? Well Kmart has recognised that some people, for whatever reason, want to buy homeware at 3am. 

The New Zealand favourite is due to open a store at Auckland's Sylvia Park shopping mall next month.

But, unlike other stores, this one will be open 24/7 and it's doors will open on August 15.

Sylvia Park Shopping Centre, New Zealand's largest mall, confirmed the news on Facebook on Thursday, with a $50 voucher up to grabs to celebrate.

"At Kmart, we want to make everyday living brighter for our customers, whether that means creating on-trend products at everyday low-prices everyone can enjoy, opening stores in new communities or extending operating hours to make shopping more convenient," Kmart NZ manager Jason Picard told NZME.

The 5000sqm store will occupy the space which previously housed Countdown, at the southern end of the mall.

It's Kmart's seventh store in Auckland, and first to open in Auckland in more than 10 years. The other Auckland locations include Albany, Henderson, St Lukes, Manukau, Botany and Papatoetoe.
