Let's remember happier times for K-Mart:

Not happier if you're a Woolworth's fan, but this is a K-Mart thread.  Wink

Yeah, we used to have a Woolworth's in our local mall.  We never went to the mall all that much when I was growing up so I was only in there a few times.  They had left in the mid 80s.  I know Woolworth's here in the US eventually became Foot Locker, and I think we had one for a while at the mall but they're gone too now.

I think this shows us that everything ends. Woolworth's, Life Magazine, Newsweek, News of the World, the WB, K-Mart, soon Sears, newspapers everywhere are teetering. Why one day Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Apple, the big three US broadcast networks will go too. So will western civilization, Shakespeare, even China will be gone one day. Eventually the sun will do its obesity thing and sizzle the planets, our galaxy will collide with the Andromeda galaxy, and supposedly the universe will implode. Nothing lasts except eternity, and some in the neo-Gnostical community that is science ask us to trust them on faith that we should not to be too sure of that.

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee  
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,  
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,  
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.... 
   
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell...

One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,   
And death shall be no more; death thou shalt die.

I've noticed that too that they're active in places like South Africa and Australia.  There's a separate K-Mart in Australia that was founded in part by the original US company but now has no connection to them.  They are doing much, much better than the Mart of K here in the US and will probably be around long after Sears collapses.  Last year they had A$470 million in income.

Back when I worked at Wally world 20 years ago they started putting stores in Germany.  They left Germany about 10 years ago.  Main reason for the failure was that they just tried to drop Wally world into Germany and did not account for the cultural differences.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
