#TBT – Kmart Throwback

We’ve had quite a few #TBT post for Sears, so know let’s give Kmart a turn. Check out what Kmart stores and ads used to look like back in the day.

My first Kmart visit was in Houston, Tx. I loved grabbing some fresh popcorn and an Icee while my parents would shop.

Any early Kmart memories?

    My local Kmart was the world’s first – in Garden City, Michigan. It is still there.

    Kmart was the first retailer in McHenry, IL – my hometown. I remember being old enough to pick out my own clothes, and I bought a winter coat there. It sure was snazzy! Storefronts on Kmarts haven’t changed much, the red ‘K’ is still so prominent.

    In my college town, my family shopped at Kmart for a lot of stuff we needed. The ICEE was definitely part of that shopping trip.
