Dead K Mart #4: Flagpole

Here’s the last of the dead K Mart photos, with the floodlight pointed toward nothing.

Dead K Mart #3: Loading Dock

This dead K Mart is on a lot that’s over 36 acres, which is a lot of empty space right in town.

But at least there’s an old mattress out by the loading docks.

Dead K Mart #2: Garden Center

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?

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.

Three, and then another one

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.
