Paul and Mary Jo Tohle sent us in the answer to solve the mystery of the "K" Here's what they had to say about it,

The "K" in "K-Mart" comes from the company's founder, Sebastian Spering Kresge, who opened his first store in 1899. The stores were called "Kresge" until 1962 when they adopted the "K-Mart" name.
