Dead K Mart #1: Parking Lot

This is the first in a four-part series of images of the out-of-business K Mart here in Lubbock.

The store closed late last year, one of 64 stores that were closed nationwide. This one does still have a dumpster and a mailbox, though the reasons for them are unclear. Wait! I just realized that I didn’t look inside the dumpster…it’s possible that I missed something important. But probably not.

  1. This looks like it could be a very interesting series – and totally in sync with your frequent representations of a failed rural economy. Soon you will have several JCPenney stores to give the same treatment just a Texas-short drive from Lubbock.
