I looked through all the windows that weren’t covered with brown paper. This was the garden center; everything’s gone except the row of advertising banners high on the wall.
According to the real estate listing for the property, the building is 178,158 square feet. It’s all empty now, of course. But way in the back, some lights have been left on – are we supposed to think someone’s home?
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.
So, I might have been trying to be stealthy in an effort to get some photos of an interesting group of people. In an effort to cover what I was really up to (remember: I almost never photograph people!), I made a few photos of these chairs.
The chairs photo is blog-worthy. The ones of the interesting people? Nope.
