News: Happy Holidays to everyone on the forum! It's been another great year of topics. 2018 will be a great year. The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email brammy82@mail.com

I think at this point, it'll be like a Ames bankruptcy, leaving stores scattered across the United States closed. Maybe around 50-100 Sears and 300-350 Kmarts. This could be as early as the turn of the decade, or maybe out there in the late-2020s

there is only 4 in NH where I live and all scattered in NH. in west Lebanon, Rochester, Salem and Hooksett. 3 in CT? no surprise as it never was a major marke for them due to Bradlees and Caldor. even the one on 34th st in NYC is in bad shape.  the only one left in NEBRASKA as of Jan is going to be a small town Alliance where the Kmart is the size of Watertowns but that too has a shopko express. only one in UTAH is on the AZ border in ST GEORGES. all in Salt lake city closed. Why is it after this wave none n ALABAMA, they had 30 at one pt.

Well, if there's one Kmart that you should visit if you live in New England or New York, it's the Watertown, CT location, which has pulled off it's retro look for many years, here's a photo:

You should ask whomever is taking you out there to take you to the Southbury KMART. I think they're still having their Going out of Business sale. Also while at the mall see  if you can get some pictures of the huge junk store they have there called Shopper's World. (It's the only one in Connecticut). Make sure you check out the adjacent co-owned Brass Mill Commons. They have a Toys R Us there. And if you do go to The Commons try and grab some pictures of Ulta Beauty and Five Below. Both took over part (or all) of The former Office Max.

I like Brass Mill Mall alright. Some people complain about it because it's in the ghetto. I went to high school in the ghetto (EC Goodwin Tech in New Britain), so it doesn't bother me at all. (That area of New Britain has since been cleaned up nicely). Usually no one bothers me at The Brass Mill Mall, but once when I was sitting in the food court waiting for a buddy of mine to get his food, some random weirdo sat down with me to discuss religion with me. You're lucky that you're still a teenager, so presumably you will have an adult with you and you won't have to worry about that happening to you.

Ehhh, I'm probably not going to. I barely convinced them to go to Watertown, and Southbury is even more out of the way from Plantsville.

there is only 4 in NH where I live and all scattered in NH. in west Lebanon, Rochester, Salem and Hooksett. 3 in CT? no surprise as it never was a major marke for them due to Bradlees and Caldor. even the one on 34th st in NYC is in bad shape.  the only one left in NEBRASKA as of Jan is going to be a small town Alliance where the Kmart is the size of Watertowns but that too has a shopko express. only one in UTAH is on the AZ border in ST GEORGES. all in Salt lake city closed. Why is it after this wave none n ALABAMA, they had 30 at one pt.
Shopko Express never had stores outside Wisconsin. Shopko had either regular-sized discount stores or Shopko Hometown stores in Wisconsin and the surrounding states.

Watertown, South Dakota has a regular-sized Shopko store.

He's referring to the Watertown, Connecticut Kmart size compared to the Alliance's Kmart

Well, it seems Connecticut is safe from any closures for a while.

when wll all of them close? OK first RI, Now Alabama w all Kmarts gone.


I think at this point, it'll be like a Ames bankruptcy, leaving stores scattered across the United States closed. Maybe around 50-100 Sears and 300-350 Kmarts. This could be as early as the turn of the decade, or maybe out there in the late-2020s

I give it 2019. and an announcement christmas 2018
Too soon, they got some more stores/money they can bleed.

More and More its "last Kmart" in this or that area.
That's true, but that doesn't mean their that close yet. There's still Kmarts in Palmer, MA. (That's a small city of 10,000)



ITS Pathetic when it gest to that and now they are starting to pull out of states like RI and alabama and are near out of South Dakota, NEbraska and Utah. and many parts of Florida, and wll have 3 left in TEXAS! 15 yrs ago they pulled out of DAllas and Houston. only 2 left in MS AND AK. this is like Woolworth where the y closed them all in waves and had 400 left before closing.
There's only three in Connecticut and in all different areas of the state.

Good ol' Walmart not being far away in Arkansas.

I guessed that as Walmart kicks butt in the south. I Feel Kmart is in BAD SHAPE! and almost all ther stores havent been renovated in 25 yrs
Well, if there's one Kmart that you should visit if you live in New England or New York, it's the Watertown, CT location, which has pulled off it's retro look for many years, here's a photo:

I'll be checking it out Sunday.



 I have been to it before and it was SMALL BUT BUSY.
Oh cool. I probably will only be there for a few minutes before heading home. I'll be going to the Brass Mill Center before stopping there too. (That mall contains a Sears)
Well, I went at 10:30 on a Sunday, and it was pretty quiet. Photos:
