Local Kmart Closing: Adios …

Our local Kmart is finally closing … while this may not have been the actual photo of the front of my store, it did pretty much look exactly like this …

I’m actually surprised it hung on for this long … I took this photo of a typical shopping day at KMart (when it’s not a HW or Disney Pixar CARS Day). Can you guess why they might be closing this Kmart?

And they had some weird *** stuff that no one else seem to carry …

Where oh where will I find Take5 candy?

How will I know Christmas is?

Or tubs of diecast …

I’ve NEVER heard of canned strawberries – frozen, fresh, but canned whole strawberries?

Yes, the clearance has begun … yogurt 75% off! Should I get some for you?

Toy are 10% off – not much CARS to choose from … some Kmart singles from Kmart Day 8 … rubber tire Raoul …

And an extra marketdown on Action Agents but about $8 more than I’d pay …

Now where I will get chopped ham and Disney Pixar CARS?

Our dreams of endless summer were just too grandiose Adios, adios. And I miss the blood red sunset But I miss you the most Adios, adios, adios, adios, adios, adios …

    Hey, that looks just like the Kmart by me. I hate going there, it’s kind of scary and the employees, well, I can’t think of a nicer way to say it, but they aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed.

    A little further away we had a brand new Kmart that was then converted to a Sears Essentials and has now been converted back to Kmart. Neither one of these ever had the Cars events, so I have to hoof it down to Chula Vista Kmart for those.

    I gotta say, that is one clean Kmart. My local Kmart is full of merchandise, almost hard to push a cart down any isle, with all kinds of seasonal products right in the middle of the isle Maybe the manager of your Kmart can come manage my local Kmart…

    Met: What will you do with the takefive hotrod?

    I guess it only gets limited runs now.


    (MET: Nice! Of course, you need a staff to keep it nice and shiny … Ralph Lauren has the right idea – he imported two Italian auto guys to tune his Ferrari’s after each drive … that’s when you know you know you have enough money. 🙂 ).

    We lost our closest Kmart at the beginning of the year and I still miss it. The next one has other Take 5 members closer than us and they beat us to any new stuff. You know who you are 🙂 fortunately they are nice guys.

    Is this the store in Pinole?

    Sorry to hear this news Met.
    One Kmart near my grandson was turned into a clearance center. There are 2 left in his town.
    We lost all Kmarts in Houston over 10 years ago. There are very few left in Texas, all far from here.

    (MET: I still have one within 15 minutes but this one carried a lot of weird products. 🙂 Before, there were not enough cases for the number of people who showed up at each store already – now, it will only get worse … unless of course the next one is 5 chrome mcqueen with different expressions …).

    Sorry to hear that your Kmart is closing… hopefully there are other stores close enough to you for you to get your Kmart Cars… if not, you know you have friends in the Cars community that will help you out.
