I know. I was thinking about that after I had posted that I'd gotten it wrong. Story of my life.

The former UNMC clinic in front of the Eagle Run KMart (between Arby's and Burger King) is going to be an Auto Zone.

Boy, Kmart's closing stores all over the place, aren't they? I went to the one on 120th and Center plenty of times when I lived in Omaha. I went to the one on 144th and Stony Brook once. Then when I moved to Lincoln, there was one on 48th and Vine, but not for very long. I went to it a couple times before it closed in January 1994 and became an Albertsons the next year. It's sad to see Kmart dying like this.

Crazy they are fitting all 4 in the space vacated by KMart. Assume they are going to need to make more entrances, so each will have their own?

Unless they combine those 3 as they are under the same parent company. Kind of like the co-branded pizza hut/kfc/taco bell.

I just drove by there today and it looked so dead. Can't believe that it lasted this long. The one in CB seems to be doing ok. Everytime I drive by that one, there are at least a few cars in the parking lot.

As we drove by there just last night, I wondered how long this location would stay open. Huh, who knew?! It's a dump, has been for years. I think they've neglected the building for so many years, I bet they bulldoze it

Based on me being a former Kmart employee for 2 years while in college..News of the continued disintegration of Kmart always saddens me a little bit.. Albeit when I worked at Kmart, it was in the early 1980’s.. It was a good place to work and for the most part, I enjoyed my time there and the people I worked with. Some of the customers though? Well, let’s just say..that’s another story, lol...

KMart a casualty of WalMart? Sorry, they mastered the sale of crappy products at cheap prices long before WM was a thing. They lost their place in the economy because they were so down market. At least at Walmart, you can find some decent quality stuff. When KMart went down scale too far, the people who wanted a sale on good stuff went elsewhere and the people who didn't have any quality standards and the people who couldn't afford anything else forced KMart to rapidly decline into a store that could not longer reach up to the middle class as they were the home of "KMart Specials", the crappy shirt or other item that was cheap, but not going to last very long or work very well.

WM did beat them, by selling decent stuff at a lower price than Penneys or Sears. They are the ones who are going under due to WM. But even they don't have a fair complaint against WM. Both sell crappy stuff made in foreign sweatshops just like WM. Both screwed up their marketing. Penneys went trash and Sears tried to sell everything instead of concentrating on hardware and mechanical items that they dominated in. Sorry, but business is cut throat and if you screw up and let your stores go to seed like Penneys or you lose focus on why people hold your company in high esteem, and build up that area so it stays in esteem, you lose.

Sorry, to derail the topic, but I am getting a bit tired of Walmart bashing.

When I lived in Omaha back in the 80's and 90's, I went to the Kmart on 122nd and W Center plenty of times. It was a good store. When it closed in 2002, I was sad and got somewhat sentimental. :(

You know, I worked at that store for 2 years in the early 80’s while in college. It was, indeed, a good store with many good people working there. I enjoyed my time as an employee of Kmart.. Even though it was a lifetime ago.. It was a good experience...
