Kmart is a chain of "big box" discount stores based in the United States, launched in 1962 as a new brand from the long-running retailer S. S. Kresge.[1] Their own-brand photographic products appear under the name Focal.

Focal cameras and accessories are typically rebranded products from major manufactures like Haking and Cosina. The lenses were made by a variety of third parties; some were made in Japan and some in Korea, likely from Samyang.

Focal was also the house brand for still and cine films, which early on were usually manufactured by Ansco or GAF but later changed to 3M Ferrania. The Focal name also appears on some stray items such as opera glasses and even a home barometer.

The Focal branding slowly disappeared in the 1990's, it was last seen on 35mm film. After much corporate turmoil the chain acquired Sears in 2005, but the merged holding company continued to struggle in a difficult market for brick-and-mortar retail. After a 2019 reshuffle, almost all Kmart-branded locations were closed down.
