The nicest Sears you may ever see - Danbury, CT

The nicest Sears store you may ever see.... in Danbury, CT.

I was contacted by Michael Parisi, who often sends us some photos from the Nutmeg State. When I saw these photos of Sears, I nearly fell out of my seat. This store looks AMAZING! If every Sears looked like this, Sears wouldn't be in a financial crisis and have a bad image or be cutting corners. This store makes you want to shop at Sears!! A little backstory...

February 2015, Sears announced it would lease out 70,000 square feet to Primark, a European retailer who is opening stores in several states. This would cut the size of the store down significantly, but would also give it a fresh new look.


July 2016, Sears has a whole new look. You may not even think this can be a Sears, but it is! The store is only 58,000 square feet, but how much space do department stores need now a days? It had a grand re opening that even featured a US Senator!


So are you curious yet as to what it looks like? I certainly hope so!

Uniontown Kmart

Uniontown PA Kmart - Guest post by Nick Fronczek

This Store was opened as a relocation store from the Uniontown Shopping Center. In this post I will share with you the many photos I have captured of this store. It was built it as an original ground up Super Kmart Center. The store has since closed but before its closure it had a brief time being a K Fresh location. On a side note, the restaurant part of this store remains open to this day as it is leased by a local owner and sears holdings who owns this building and property has agreed to let him stay till a buyer can be found.

Thanks for shopping Your Super Kmart Center

Now I will talk about this stores conversion from a Super Kmart to Kmart featuring K-Fresh. The store basically liquidated all grocery as well as most grocery fixtures and closed all full service departments . This store was one of the very few K Fresh concepts completed and while it was done cheaply it ended up looking nice. The final result had some coolers and freezers all of which were saved from the Super Kmart center days of the store.


The K-Fresh concept stuck around for just about 2 yrs and a couple of months ago Sears Holdings announced that the store would begin to close. These pictures are from the liquidation sale and inventory blowout.

Sadly, this store closed in July of 2016. Hopefully you enjoyed the look back at the store. Feel free to leave a comment below!
