KR opened its doors to the public in February, 2017 in SM City Tarlac. It’s the first KR store in the predominantly agricultural province. Tarlac is among the biggest producers of rice and sugar in Central Luzon. Among its cottage industries, Ceramics has become highly-available due to abundant supply of clay in the area. The province attracts visitors to its annual festival celebrations like Belenismo sa Tarlac or Belen-making contest and Malatarlak or Melting Pot festival to commemorate the first people who built civilization in the province, the Aetas.
