Kmart is more than a store

-A A +A

I literally cried when I learned Kmart is closing. Kmart is more than a store to me. It is a neighborhood friend.

A place where I bought my grandkid’s clothes and Christmas presents.

A place where when my grandson was especially good we went to get him a special toy. 

A place where when I was having a boring day I would head out to the garden shop and get plants to beautify my yard.

Yes, much of what I have is from Kmart. And no, I find no joy in driving to Ocala to shop.

Kmart, please don’t go.
