9B--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gatett^Mail Ch«rltston, w«t Vlr«lnl» _ 150 Area Residents To Work at Kmart By Edward Peeks The second Kmart in the ^Charleston area will employ 150 | area residents when it opens at ^6531 MacCorkle Ave. SE in Ka^ nawha City Aug. 17. i Additional employes will be P added to the Kmart staff during I peak seasonal periods, said c Manager Jack L. Durrett, a ! native of South Charleston. The store is similar to the ' Kmart that operates in the Pa' trick Street Plaza. It is also one of more than 1,140 Kmart, Kresge and 1 Jupiter stores operated by S. S. Kresge Co. with headquarters in Detroit, Mich. Robert E. Dewar, a native of Traverse City, Mich., and a former Detroit lawyer, is chairman and chief executive officer of the company. William A. Saum is vice president of the company's Eastern region and is responsible for about 150 Kmart, Kresge variety and Jupiter discount stores in 10 states, including West Virginia. He believes the retail business offers great opportunities to young people. "Of course, the work can be hard, but rewards for those who put in their best efforts come more quickly than in any other field," Saum said. He began his career with Kresge in the management training program in 1936. Chairman Dewar joined the company's legal department in 1949. He was appointed assistant to Harry B. Cunningham, then president, in 1960. For three years, Dewar helped develop the Kmart concept and worked closely with Cunningham in launching the Kmart d i s c o u n t department store program. Dewar was named assistant vice president of finance in 1963, financial vice president in 1966, a director in 1967, executive DEWAR SAUM vice president in 1968, and president and chief administrative officer in 1970. He was elected chairman in April. Kresge employes altogether more than 77,000 persons, said Durrett. About 2,800 have been with the company for 25 years or more. All employes are entitled to enroll in the Kresge stock purchase plan after one year of service, Durrett noted. Employes of the new Kmart are stocking it up. "Our concept is to stock only first quality goods and 1 price everything to move in large quantities," Durrett said. "Present plans for the opening provide for what we feel will be remarkable savings :o our customers." Condensation Causes Alarm Condensation from an air conditioner, thought to be smoke, brought the Charleston fire department to the CP Telephone Co., at 812 Lee St., Saturday, a fire official said. Five trucks were dispatched at 11 a.m., in answer to a telephone call that the building was on fire. Home Furniture Co. 807 Virginia Street, E. Charleston, W. Va. ST.
