  2. Clarification:
    I grew up with K-Mart. Everytime I go out my house, I see a K-Mart sign. It was prior to 1993. After 39 years in Moffat County, it's over. As Geoffrey Chaucer once said, "All good things must come to an end."

  3. Natchez, MS was not expanded. The store was built by Howard's in the early to mid 80's just before that chain's demise. Kmart has operated there since 1987, but never expanded it.

    1. WOW! That is a very different looking Kmart. Thanks for the info!

  4. I am sad to see the demise of Kmart. I will not forget the good feeling I would get especially around Christmas when the bell ringer who was a tiny old woman of which i will never forget her as she rang the bell in her service to others in need, year after year she was there. Once inside the store, there were smiling faces everywhere and the smell of the cafeteria as they had hot beef or hot turkey sandwches with gravy and potatoes, often we would eat there enjoying each other and laughing and shopping, and always a freindly face, and people from community. This store will always have a special place in my heart.- Robin

  5. I have a feeling the Canton, OH store will be in some way converted to a Meijer, if you search on Bing for Meijer in Canton, Ohio, you'll see a mapped address for a Meijer directly next to Walmart, it makes you wonder what could be going on.

    1. I know there are plans for a Meijer in North Canton, someone told me it is planned on Frank Avenue behind BJ's Wholesale.

      I know when Menards was built in Massillon, the space to the right of the store was set aside for a Meijer. That is why the Menards store is built ackwardly off the highway. Menards and Meijer like opening new stores next to each other since it drives more customers to both stores. I don't recall hearing if plans for the Massillon location have started back up, but it wouldn'the surprise me (Meijer was planning NE Ohio locations pre-recession but bailed on the plans).

      As for the Kmart in Canton, I have no clue if Meijer is interested in that one. It is very possible since Meijer tends to open stores pretty close to Walmart locations.
