Surprised Salem, NH is not on that list.  Hopeless for decades, empty for years.

 

Last time I was in there (on the way to another store), I passed by a table of nice shirts with a sign which read 'marked down' -- no prices, no percentages.  When I finally found a cashier, the price was outstanding.  I got a bunch and went to the checkout.  There were two behind me in line (the cashier may have been the only other person in the building).  As she processed my order, one of the two asked me where I found the shirts then both left to plunder the table.  That table was right at the entrance to the mall.  Imagine if one of the employees had thought to post a sign with price information?  If Amazon did not post prices, I would not shop there either!

I'm really surprised there are many left. NOWHERE that I frequent has a Kmart or a Sears left. It's a shame, used to shop at both of them a lot.

Mine isn't on this list, but the billboards are all over touting its closing soon.  I'm not completely sorry because the store has been a dump for years.  But I am sorry that the local mall has lost its second of 3 anchor stores and is slowly becoming a mini-clinic instead of a shopping mall.

I think it's a great idea to repurpose these buildings as service areas specializing in things difficult to do over the internet.

I tried to buy an old mall in Tampa many years ago. Wanted to turn it into an office park and keep a nice food courtyard in it. One of the people we were getting to help back it fell through though. I think the concept would have worked well.

I live in a bedroom community just a little distant from everything.  A company proposed a project that included an assisted living complex with a pharmacy, a clinic, and 'other retailers'.  At the time, my wife was traveling an hour for dialysis.  I hoped that would be available locally.  Never happened, but I think this is the future of local retail outlets and I am looking forward to it.

 

Maybe a little related, EVERY grocer in my area is offering delivery.  When I finally give up my license, I will not go hungry!

I used to live in an apartment complex where the whole front of it on the first floor was various businesses. We had things like starbucks, a local pizza place, an italian restaurant, seafood restaurant, pharmacy and a bunch of other things. Was pretty cool, I would just run down my stairs, grab what I needed/wanted and then head back up the stairs. :)

I got my kid's backpack from that KMart. It was pictured on their website as having 2 in stock. Went up that night but couldn't find them. Ordered it for in-store pick up. It was actually kind of nice that the store was so calm. I didn't mind my kids running around because there were no customers to trip over. When the bag came in a few days later, we went back. The email said to go to any register. There was no one at customer service, so we went to the line. The guy at the register said he couldn't help me and I told him there was no one at customer service. It took a bit for someone to get over there and then they had to hike off to find the order. In the end, we got the backpack he wanted that I couldn't find anywhere else for a great price, but man, it was painful.

I use to love the points program at Kmart and Sears. Last few Christmas’s I got so much stuff for free. I’d buy stuff on sale using their coupons n get money to use to get free stuff. I seriously miss it. All of ours (both stores) are gone. I do shop online a little still but it’s not the same.

Our mall has lost many anchor stores, very sad.  No longer have Sears, JCPenney or the Boston Store.  Kmart has been long gone.  Still have a Kohl's and a Target.  Newer stores coming in have been Ross's, Home Goods, the usual small strip store mall stuff.
