Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: Kmart Down To Last 4 Stores …

Yea, end of days is near for Kmart …

“Kmart is down to its last 4 stores in the US.”

“On a busy stretch of Route 35 near Rahway, New Jersey, one of the nation’s last Kmart stores looks like a relic from the past. Its big red K is faded and cracked. Inside this most American of retail stores, popular for K Cafe luncheonettes and Bluelight Specials, a sign promotes 60% off clothing. A dining-room table was on clearance for $89, while Route 66 jeans went for $10.99 and pink ladies’ neck sweaters for $12.49.”

For CARS collectors, it was the home of CARS COLLECTOR DAYS – you can read about the 1st one here.

And sadly, the last ONE HERE.

Of course, for Hot Wheel’s Collectors, it was an even longer home of their Collector Days … Kmart was home to both Collector Days thanks to Kmart back in 1967 placing the 1st giant order for Hot Wheels before they were presented at Toy Fair …

    There was a time when my wife and I would drive up to Big Bear Lake Ca. and always stop at the Kmart there and find the most wonderful Cars selection! Thanks to Take Five a Day we always knew about these events! We have quite a few saved but most went into happy little hands. It was sooo fun! We even saved the promotional 2-sided cardboard displays and posters. We always enjoyed shopping at Kmart but sadly no more. 🙁 We still love Big Bear Lake though! But not a Cars toy to be found now. Even the local Walmarts and Targets around us rarely have anything. Or we were too late. It’s sad when you have money to spend and nowhere to spend it…except online of course. 🙁
