local kmart is closing :(


Recommended Posts

I can't believe ours is still open. It's really an old nasty store and I HATE going in there.

Either they don't have what they advertise, or they charge me the wrong price.

Grossly overpriced compared to Walmart if you ask me. I hate giving Walmart all of my business though.

My dream come true would be that Kmart closed and Target took their place ;)

Saw one closing in Knoxville, TN this weekend. Went in. Not much there. Selling racks & then things were 30% - 50% off. Most of the good stuff must have been sent to other stores cause they only had crappy stuff. Everything seemed expensive even with discount. Micro mini ravioli was $1.39 with discount! Ridiculous.:shock:

There is still a K-mart in Maryville (15-20 minutes) away. It's actually clean. Not nasty like most K-marts.

The Kmart by me should have closed years ago. I shopped there for the double coupon thing last week for the first time in many, many moons.


And guess what... it's STILL filthy (dead dried-up lizard on the floor right when I walked in, garbage in carts, dusty/faded merchandise, narrow aisles, half-empty shelves, employees who could use a lesson in hygiene, overall unkept feel). All of the things that drove me away two years ago--and then some--will keep me away again.


It's a shame, because the potential is there. It's in an otherwise busy shopping center with lots of newer residential development around it. If the head honchos would simply take some lessons and cues from inviting/successful stores such as Target, I think they'd do just fine.


The fixes they need to make are NOT rocket science or bank breakers; IMO, it's nobody's fault but their own if they go under.

had one 15km away close ummm 5 years ago? then another about 20km away closed about 2 years ago. I got some great deals though.


Then the one closest to me closed about a year ago and had no warning. I drove to the Burger King in the same shopping centre and the store was closed. Just one day ago it was open. Weird....


But yea all of them were low class and dirty and messy. Only thing good they had was those cheap $5 Little Ceasers pizzas for sale.

i just cannot believe this store is still in business. I guess they have their place, in places where there are no other stores locally, but honestly, i look in the flyer and things look kinda cute, some of the furniture looks decent-then ive gone to the store-and ewwww. its so ugly, strange lighting-no thought to making it look nice..i havent been there in probably 5 years. the items in store are not as nice, they have nothing in stock-no logical footprint..i dont want to upset anyone who shops there, but i think its time to go.
