Jobs (dead K-Mart)

So, if you go to the website shown on the phone, it takes you to Sears Holdings. And right there it says, “Our future looks brighter than ever.”

The dead K Mart indicates otherwise, but whatever.

Also: the date on the phone says July 24. I was there on August 7, if that tells you anything.

STOP (dead K-Mart)

That sign! It instructs employees to state their name, department number, and nature of their business before the door will be opened.

It’s hard to imagine having to be the person who worked in that room, completely blocked in all day long. That would drive me crazy. Or – let’s just be honest here – crazier.

(Second of four photos from inside a dead K Mart.)

Depths (dead K-Mart)

Well, this was a rare treat – a chance to get inside an old K-Mart store (which I’ve named “dead K-Mart” because that’s the way my mind works). I’d previously peeked through the doors of this place, but being inside was a whole new perspective.

This is the first of four images from this place. Don’t worry, though, it was a sanctioned visit and I didn’t get arrested or anything like that.

Vast. Empty. (two)

There were just a few boxes that weren’t important enough to be taken out with all the other store furnishings.
